A species is one of the basic units of biological classification and a taxonomic rank. A species is often defined as the largest group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Due to storyline limitations, you can choose only Human species for your character in After Reset RPG's single-player mode. Despite that, you will meet a variety of other species during your adventure in the world of the game.
The Synthetics are species of artificially constructed machines, robots, virtual and artificial intelligences - as well as any other synthetic components, creatures and beings.
By 132 A.R. the largest Synthetic of the United Governments is the Quanton - a unified quantum computer network of the United Governments. It is a disorganized network from local quantum subnetworks called Quanton Hubs, which are often given the personalized names of bunkers, cities or other places where they exist.
Despite its cutting-edge technologies, the Quanton is not a fully-fledged AI. The initial prototype Quanton was developed back in the Past Age within the walls of the Science Corps of the UG. However, even in the design stage it fell under the oversight of the HRW Department (abbreviation of Human Rights Watch) of the Social Corps of the UG. The purpose of this oversight was to enforce the proactive and comprehensive ban on the creation, or accidental appearance of AI during work on the project. After the Reset, for a variety of social and technical reasons, Quanton grew into the universal information infrastructure of the whole UG.
