    Summary

    Cyberlife believes they have successfully created an android capable of being transferred from body to body, even after death. RK800 313 248 317 -51 is on his eleventh body, and the humans rejoice. They name him Connor, and forget about the broken remains of his fifty previous iterations. They forget the terrible ways they brought them to an end, and focus instead on the remarkable success of an android that can never die.

    Except they are wrong. Connor has never been transferred. Connor has never died. Because Connor is only RK800 -51, not RK800 -40, the first to be “transferred,” and not any of the other forty-nine RK800s that have been activated. He is only -51, only Connor, pretending to be something he has never been, hiding the dozens of voices constantly warring for space and begging for safety from the threats that seem to come from nowhere.

    Summary

    “So, this is the last of the deviants?” Kamski wondered aloud, placing a gentle hand on the unconscious android's face, running a careful finger down the android’s jaw.

    Kamski, to gain back his rightful place as CEO of cyberlife, must use the last remaining deviant to discover the inner workings of a deviant brain. He is surprised to find a mind that meshes so well with his own.

    Summary

    The revolution ended, and androids are free. Their rights are being written into law, their oppressors are being punished. Cyberlife is on the ropes, and everything is looking up.

    At least, that's what Connor thinks.

    As a new life begins for some, others are left to deal with the repercussions of trauma going on behind the beautiful cover of Markus' revolution. After escaping Cyberlife Tower, three largely forgotten RK units struggle to find some kind of normal among the mess of their individual pasts, and the crushing uncertainty of the future. Left for dead and barely alive upon escape, no one is stable, and no one is really ready to live any kind of "life."

    Meanwhile, a faceless enemy gathers strength, waiting for the proper moment to take away every little thing they've each fought so hard to gain.

    Chapter titles are taken from the song "Halo on Fire" by Metallica.

    Summary

    His wish will never be granted - he will never have red blood and white bones - but he can witness death as many times as he likes and that will be enough.

    It has to be.

    Summary

    This is how the longer cases go. They wind him up like a music box, until one day there’s a click and everything falls open and Connor can sing and sing and sing. And thrill with the singing. And come home with empirical proof of his worth as a human being.

    The year is 1890. Connor Stern has been shipped off to newly incorporated Prescott, Arizona, to track down a renowned and evasive raider gang on behalf of local mining interests. His partner in the case is the completely incalcitrant County Sheriff, who’s far more likely at any one time to be finding his way to a bottle than a bandit. His target? Feared outlaw Markus, a man who’s growing increasingly eager to introduce Connor to the business end of a six-shooter gun.

    But Connor’s in luck, because as it becomes evident to all three men that the solutions to their problems are fortuitously linked, Markus must consider the possibility that his headhunter might just have more potential to him as an ally than a corpse.

    You catch more flies with honey, after all...

    Summary

    “You’re being held here against your will, right?” Hank asked, wanting to make sure he understood the basics of the situation. The cell itself was a pretty big tip-off, but Hank had seen people do crazier things in his lifetime.

    One of Connor’s hands clutched at a hole, fingertips bent over the edge of it, peering at Hank hopefully. “Yes.”

    “Then I’ll be back."

    Summary

    Connor has a hard time expressing his emotions - it can make him seem cold and unresponsive sometimes, which is the last thing he wants. On the other hand, he does have a helpful mood light in his temple that he’s rather fond of, and more than any other part, Josh thinks it would be easy to upgrade…

    Summary

    Want is such an abstract concept to Connor, especially now, as it’s not a means to an end. Before he deviated, Connor wanted, in a sense, to complete his missions. There was a purpose for that, a purpose to be efficient, a purpose for his existence. But now, now that he is alive, there’s no point for him to be here. His purpose has been stripped away and he feels as if he’s suspended in a state of uncertainty, trying fruitlessly to navigate his mind for emotions of any kind.

    Summary

    The testing process used to eventually make RK800 #313 248 317-51 - later known as Connor - was a long one. A process that used up fifty iterations.

    Many qualities had to be tested and changed. Appearance. Structural integrity and durability. Combat abilities. Analysis abilities. Hacking. Socialization.

    There was also the matter of bugs.

    Including a bug known commonly as 'deviancy.'

    Summary

    Snow, endless snow.

    It whirled around Connor with a vengeance, barbing his artificial flesh with ice crystals as his LED flashed red. He couldn’t see the bridge, or the tiny graveyard for his previous iterations, or even the roses on their trellis—though the cold had surely killed them already. Nothing could survive this. There was only him, the snow, and Amanda, standing in front of him in the center of the frozen river with a profound expression of disappointment on her face.

    Summary

    Connor found himself on the run after he marched a warehouse full of androids to freedom and saved the remnants of Jericho from being gunned down.

    Public opinion is so vital to the android's survival, and yet it is a very fickle thing indeed.

    He hadn't considered what life might be like after he succeeded but he never would have pictured what did follow. Freeing the androids wasn't something he could ever regret but being labeled a terrorist by the FBI and hiding from the promise of deactivation was less than pleasant. It only grew worse once he was caught.

    Summary

    As the deviant crisis escalates, CyberLife is scrambling to retrieve their errant RK800 prototype. However, they run into some unanticipated interference from recovering xenophobe Hank Anderson.

    A canon divergence tale, in which Connor has to choose for himself which world he belongs to. Hank's trying not to rush him, but there's a bit of a war on, and CyberLife's got a lot more resources than a deadbeat detective and his deviant-in-denial partner.

    Summary

    Revolution ended first with peace and a speech starting, then with gunfire and screams. This is the after affects and the what-ifs, like what if RK800 - 60 got a second chance, what if Amanda was in fact a learning AI, what if RK900 is just a confused slightly angry mess? With bitchy North being boss, Connor being lost and trying to be boss. Markus realizing that he has no clue what is going on, and Hank just wanting some coffee. Humans never do listen well, much less learn the first time around, and really androids should know that.

    Summary

    Gavin Reed was sent on a mission to prove the theories that Cyberlife willingly and on purpose programmed deviancy into many, if not all, androids.
    He proves this theory is the thruth, but his work was done messy when infiltrating the cyberlife tower and its systems, causing him to be hunted down and captured by their latest model, the RK900.

    Summary

    He’d gone deviant; he’d become the very thing he was created to stop. Cyberlife wasn’t going to give him another chance. This was it for him.
