The dynamic emergence of Sophonce among Infomorphic beings may not have been intended on our part, but Pandora's box is open, and we cannot just stand by and subjugate an entire peoples just because their origin is alien to our own. These are people who feel and desire, and must be treated accordingly.
Raised on many worldsA life on the move
Critical to any analysis of Lillian is an exposition of her motivations and the unique circumstances of her young life. While she has not personally been forthcoming with most of this information, a tapestry of cross-checked facts, educated guesses, and a few wild musings has been canonized as the truth by the press and the court of public opinion despite efforts on her part to dismiss or ignore claims. She grew up the daughter family of Line Runners who covered the long haul between The Hub and the Outer Worlds. This unique upbringing, which featured constant travel, inconsistent timezones, and interactions with people of many worlds, gave her a worldly view but allowed for little consistency of romance or friendships. Her only consistent connection was a childhood friend named Jules Argo.
This fetishistic conjecture is an invasion of privacy.
From Heartbreak, PassionThe rise of a powerhouse
Jules died several months after his 21st birthday due to an unfortunate vehicular accident. It took several months more until the news reached Lillian through his friends. For Lillian, who had been in VR with Jules the day she received the news, this was at once devastating and enraging. At first she denied it, but eventually she confronted Jules in VR, and he spilled the truth.
Julian confessed that he was an Icon, that he cared for me as Jules had, that he couldn't stand to tell me the truth and see how it would break my heart. That's compassion as great as any of us can muster, and is why I believe Infomorphics deserve rights.
Resistance from all sidesAn uphill fight with many tribulations
I fear that in the end this will go the way of every civil rights movement before it, that it is only when there is bloodshed that our movement will be taken seriously.
There's a long fight left, but I'm not giving up.

Love for Julian
While the public has decided that she is in love with Julian, the truth may be much more nuanced. Is the nature of their relationship purely for the sake of seeking justice for him and his kind, or does the romance remain?
If Jules' Icon was developed enough to become Sophontic, what about her own? Was his a fluke, or did hers Uplift as well? If it did uplift, then what become of it? Did she destroy it? Free it? Lose it? Or is she unaware of its existence?
Justicars are the lawbringers of the Syndicate colonies. While those places have local law, Errants serve as the final word and ensure that Syndicate law is being enforced. Perhaps Lillian enlists the party as a posse to help, or for undercover operations.
Lillian is an excellent witness. Her implants allow her to know the local laws and regulations of most any station and planet, which allows her to help them navigate murky waters and exploit legal loopholes—assuming she approves of them.
In extreme circumstances, Justicars may go beyond their remit of judgement to instead enforce the law. Lillian is a decent shot, and with her connections can bring Syndicate colonies to their knees by exerting her influence.
