The Dissident

// Vanguard

Zalia is a champion for all who can feel pain and be exploited. She is also entirely convinced that this includes cogs and gears, the AI and robotic inhabitants of the world. She is a vanguard and the local chapter leader of Ergo Sum, a national activist group dedicated to protecting the rights and freedoms of all conscious beings. Vocal and fierce are the way most people would identify her, but those who know her more closely also recognize her as a philosopher and poet. An accident that nearly killed her left her without her right arm and leg but was remedied with cybernetic prosthetics. As a result, Zalia also identifies with and speaks for the growing population of citizens with artificial parts. She personally believes that man and machine are meant to blend together and thrive in a hybrid utopia.
