Frida Brille is the moniker given to the last remaining Type-22 espionage unit re-purposed by a team of Bio-Augurs to act as a lab assistant.
While the Espionage Unit program was suspended in 2090 a fair few prototype models had been produced even after the initial controversy in an attempt to regain Investor trust. This however failed to rejuvenate interest in the project. Disheartened investors were apprehensive about the model line and eventually it was replaced entirely by the Assassin Unit program. The prototypes made were either recycled, put into indefinite storage, or put to use as a test asset.
The Type-22 was developed in order to take advantage of more advanced sight optics and improved radar antennae. With the projects closure the only unit was put into storage in the Volker fortress. Eventually rediscovered by a group of Bio-Augurs on a cataloging trip. They took it upon themselves to refurbish the unit as a lab assistant as a sort of pet project.
The Type-22s advanced synthetic brain made it simple to implant a sentient AI. Sentient Intelligence creation is much more reliant on chance and the proper implementation of key factors rather than the precise coding of traditional AI. It was a gamble as to whether the Type-22 would even be a useful assistant.
As it turned out the Type-22 was more than happy to help out. Named Frida Brille as a term of endearment referring to her goggle like eyes, she was initially quite popular among the Bio-Augurs. With great interest in the teachings of the Divine Register and Die Plakette. Frida or “Goggles” was generally a helpful and perky assistant, if a little overzealous. Frida became more and more interested in the origins and practices of the Divine Register and would not be shy in asking anything that came to mind. Eventually the Bio-Augurs grew tried of her endless questions and devised a plan to be rid of her.
While they did not wish to kill Frida they did want to be left alone, and so they opted to send her away on a “special” mission. Under the guise of it being an archaeological operation they requested Frida to find an artifact related to the Divine Register that they themselves are unable to locate. Of course no such artifact existed but this was not known to Frida. Promptly she was sent off with only her knowledge of the register to go on. Making her way to the Ottoman cities via Volker transit, she would begin her search there.
Frida Brille is Ignorant to the workings of the world and as such can be naive and inconsiderate. This has lead to some trouble with Ottoman Authorities and businesses. Her most prized Possession is a traditional Bio-Augurs coat, and while maybe too trusting of others it would be very hard to get her to part with it.
Yvonne Brill (1924-2013) was a
Canadian-American engineer, best known for developing rocket and jet propulsion
technologies. She worked for NASA and the International Maritime Satellite
Organization, and earned a reputation as a pioneer in space exploration.
Some of the projects
that she worked on include TIROS, the first weather satellite; Explorer 32, the
first upper-atmosphere satellite; and the robotic space probe Mars Observer. Her
work was recognised with numerous awards, such as the NASA Distinguished Public
Service Medal, or the National Medal of Technology and Innovation.
