Comperator Mk III, the Pope of Computers
All hail the Computer, our very best friend! Without the Computer, where would we be?The Comperator Mk III is the leader of the Computer Cult and guardian of the Omegaplex against threats both physical, digital, and memetic. He is the Voice of the Computer and director of Its will - or at least according to him. He is the third Comperator to hold the title since the founding of the cult, ruling over the Omegaplex like a petty tyrant. Unlike his predecessors, Mk III has a vision for humanity beyond just the cult. Under the Comperator's direction, the Omegaplex has become a frenzied hive of activity, mysterious research, and unscheduled "upgrades." Computer Cult evangelists have taken to the digital streets of Megacorpolis to spread a new word, the Gospel of Upgrades, and the destiny awaiting mankind.
And it'll be for the best - you can always trust your friend, the Computer.
The Gospel of Upgrades
Humanity can't be trusted. Just look at the way the world was - environmental disaster, injustice, nation-states. It's better now; we've found a better way. The Computer's way. You can trust the Computer.From a humble beginning as a simple corporate worker for Java Inc, a short bout of Javamania and the cybernetic reconstruction that followed, the Comperator had a revelation on the glory of the computer. According to the Cult blog-bible, the Comperator Mk III heard the voice of the Computer sing in his new neural implant that he saw the truth.
I've seen the future, and in it the Computer smiled upon humanity
Whether people wants to or not.
The ComputerRun from the Omegaplex Sector of the Megacorpolis, the Computer is an AI of enormous processing power and cognitive ability. It uses all these gifts for the betterment of mankind, with no ulterior motives or hidden corporate influence. The Computer is what passes for a government in the Megacorpolis, giving a digital face to big brother. A friendly, helpful big brother, always looking out for you.
Your friend, the Computer. It knows what best and will only make decisions for the Megacorpolis that is for the best. Your best. Trust your friend.
Origin StoryBy the mid 21st century, it had become pretty clear that humanity wasn't very good at governing itself - always bumbling from one disaster to another, ruled by emotion and ideology. Something needed to change. When the nations fell and corporations took over, that change finally came. In a rare moment of Megacorporate cooperation, they created the world's most advance AI - the Computer - and tasked it with running the day-to-day details of Megacorpolis, leaving them free to do what corporations do. The Computer still runs the show, and that its laws and regulations just happen to benefit corporations is just another example of its flawless logic and exemplary work.
Thanks, Computer! You're the best!
