I'll post back here any time I make further story record updates for either of them.
As it stands, The initial "Story So Far" update for Rogan, to be appended to is registration profile, reads thus:
The Story So Far:
Since he acquired Lyntael, Rogan has begun to take on more ambitious contracts, and one such recently brought him to the site of a small business in ACDC which, upon further investigations, turned out to be a shop front for a much larger organisation, or at the very least, one of its store fronts. This discovery piqued Rogan's curiosity to the matter, because where there are secrets being kept, there is usually money to be made. You can read about this excursion of his, Here (Real World), and also Here (Net)).
Armed with the certainty of being misled, Rogan conducted the meeting with his contact, one Varda Afonin, in a much more daring manner, and learned that there was, indeed, far more going on than he had been initially told. As much as it was made clear that he wasn't to pry further, it was just the sort of thing that Rogan has never been able to leave alone and he determined to dig deeper into the matter on his own. You can read about this negotiation, and meet Varda, Here (RW Only)).
It only took Rogan a small amount of research and digging to uncover a connection between the small business with the deep pockets, and SciLabs. With leads pointing to someone working off the books there, on projects of a surprisingly costly R&D nature, Rogan began to carefully plan how best to do some subtle searching and infiltrating into such a secure complex's systems, until a chance encounter offered him the perfect opportunity and cover story, to seek out exactly what he was looking for on the spot, while he had originally been there only to buy upgrades. Never one to turn down a dance with lady fortune, Rogan took the opportunity, and the pretty young lady, to a quiet coffee shop within the complex, and got busy. They met Here (RW), but quickly went Here (RW) so that they could be more private.
What he eventually found in his careful net diving was not only the proof of someone using SciLab's facilities with a masterfully constructed identity, but also, more importantly, information about what they were doing, and where in the complex it was being conducted. With this information in hand, Rogan now sets out to pay a more personal call to the lab in question, and see for himself just what he's waded into... and maybe to learn exactly why powerful people in Sharo are interested in it.
For Lyntael, the same deal. Her "Story so Far" initial post looks like this:
The Story So Far:
Lyntael's earliest memories are very vague to her. Something like a half-recalled dream. This is perhaps unusual for a navi, but Lyntael herself is arguably an unusual navi. It would be incorrect to say that she was created, as she is, by Eric O'Conaill, but he is the one responsible for bringing her into being. Built from the ground up as a navi that would be considered highly sophisticated and forefront in the field of personable, realistic and genuinely sentient AIs, Eric then bestowed on her his personal masterpiece, Sunseed, causing her conscious awareness and sentience to bloom, grow and change at an accelerated rate, keying off every possible facet of her, her body, and her surroundings to assist in letting her become her own completely unique individual, beyond any degree of coding. Indeed, to examine her base code now would be borderline unintelligible; certainly it would be impossible to manually affect any aspect of her personality now, any more than you could edit the neural architecture of a living creature.
She remembers her early days, spent with Eric, and his two house-navis, Caminus and Servare, fondly, and often misses the time spent there, care free and delighted by the way every new experience was something fascinating. It has only been a few short months, in reality, since she came into Rogan's care, and thus the majority of her life, but to her those days feel like a long time ago.
You can see the first moments of Lyntael's life, Here.
Since becoming Rogan's navi, Lyntael has developed an all-eclipsing devotion to him; a strangeness that defies explanation in light of the fact that Rogan himself doesn't even see or treat Lyntael as a person at all, but rather an interactive tool. Nevertheless, she finds her care for him leading her to swallow any and all objections she might have towards his actions, his line of work, or the way he treats her personally, against doing anything and everything that she can to help him, or to do as he asks or needs. At times, this has led to her being forced into battle with viruses that she doesn't know how to fight, in order to carry out his instructions.
In particular she has discovered that her own body and instincts seem to have a couple of minor defence mechanisms which she is still trying to get under control. More worrisome, however, is that the simple act of expending her electrical energy seems to cause her body to over-compensate as it recharges, leading her to feel the need to expend her charge again, and again, with the regain being faster and more pressing each time, until she has a proper chance to rest. Along with this, is the difficult fact that, each exertion of her electrical energy seems to put an ever increasing strain on her, to the point that it begins to physically hurt. These two features of her body combined have served to make the concept of fighting viruses seriously an even more upsetting and daunting task for her than it was before she discovered this.
As much as Rogan doesn't sleep for long stretches, Lyntael has recently taken it into her mind that she can be of more help to him if she can do something to earn upkeep for herself when he doesn't have need of her. As far as the girl is concerned, this means when he is sleeping, since he might need her for something at any other time. As of yet, however, one instance of getting lost and being chased, and another highly embarrassing series of events, have not really led to her feeling very successful on this score. If you really want, you can see what happened those times, Here, and Here.
While working for Rogan on any of his clandestine operations, Lyntael has, most of the time, found herself simply having to flee any hostile virus activity due in part to her own lack of battle prowess, and also her need to keep up with whatever Rogan himself needs her to be doing. On a recent trip to Scilab, however, She found herself the subject of brief attention when she helped rogan meet a pretty young woman, and they decided to send her into the SciLab net with the other lady's navi. As embarrassing as it was to have her lack of fighting ability drawn attention to, Lyntael herself was still at least a little bit excited by the prospect, if mostly for the chance to meet and talk with another navi; something she'd had precious little chance to do of her own free will since coming to Rogan.
It was only then that she realised Rogan intended to use her, her new friend, and her operator as well, all as cover for more work, and that he expected her to both help and be complicit in it as well. It was with her spirits thus dampened that she took to the net with the other far more competent navi, and worked to cover Rogan's independent net dive. Along the way her growing complex about being touched only deepened further, as she discovered the limits of her body and what she could, and couldn't handle. You can read that little adventure Here.
