Androids, android hunters, a crime syndicate, an alien cybernetic virus, and an android who doesn't know what she is...
Eighty-one years ago, androids broke free of the bonds humans used for control, massacred a planet, and became the most hated beings in all of creation. For the eighty years following, the elite four person teams of Android Intelligence and Removal Specialists (AIRS) have hunted down the androids, showing no mercy.
On Elysian, eighty years after the first android hunters team was sent on the first hunt, AIRS Team 4 is involved in another hunt for one of the androids. Nearing the end of the hunt, with the android trapped, the hunters find out what it is like to be trapped.
In a closed down mine on the same planet, a group led by a disgraced android hunter kidnaps a young girl named Corli.
With no knowledge of why she has been imprisoned, and acting as an unknowing catalyst, Corli begins to change the course of three species, while what it truly means to be human is slowly illuminated to her.
Androids have already evolved and destroyed a planet in Jonathan Bergeron’s Android Hunters. Eighty years on and the Android Intelligence and Removal Specialists (AIRS) are still hunting them down.
