X-Plore Character Bio

he year is 4075, humanity has advanced significantly in the last 2000 years and now space travel within our solar system is the norm. The human race has built 3 large colonies throughout neighboring planets and a sprawling city shimmers on the surface of mars as the sun bathes it in light.

The human race’s current super powers, England and Mars colony BA-12 fight for technological dominance in order to prove superiority and become known as the leaders of human advancement. This results in a new space-race as both sides design marvellous technological creations to explore beyond our own solar system, examine nearby asteroids and take scientific samples of previously unknown elements found only within the vacuum of space.

X-Plore was the final creation of this race. Mars colony BA-12 created X-Plore as the follow up to their extremely successful W-Plore space exploration probe. The on-board AI of the distinctly humanoid shaped probe had become well known for being decades ahead of its time, being able to answer complex question, learn by observing, and was even reported to understand sarcasm. Crowds gathered for the X-Plore probe launch as the human race watched with bated breath as the countdown to launch began. Moments after the shuttle launched the mission control team began communications with the X-Plore probe and continued to monitor the missions advancement until the probe reached the edge of the solar system. Beyond this point there was no way of communicating back to mission control the last message sent by the probe was a simple but haunting phrase, “I’m scared”.

Humanity wept as it realized that it had for the first time created its own artificially intelligent create, and instantly launched it into the abyss to suffer an eternity of aimless wondering through the cold and lonely void of space.
