The Vios (pronounced Vee-ohs) are a group of seven powerful artificial intelligences in the Vios Group of galaxies. Each one is considered a province in The Alkan Intendancy, as well as nobility themselves.
There are seven Vios, each one is listed below with their territory sizes included (Most of the names are pseudonyms adopted by each AI to allow for easier communication with the Alkan Intendancy) In order of significance in the Intendancy:
- MARTA (99% of the Herald Galaxy)
- Alpha (50% of the Kitov Galaxy)
- Omega (50% of the Kitov galaxy)
- The Divine One (89% of the Divine Galaxy)
- Klaus (11% of The Divine Galaxy, 12% of The Hex Galaxy, 1% of the Herald galaxy)
- The Director (100% of the irregular galaxy Sakai)
- Pharoh (88% of the Hex Galaxy)
FlagsThe flags are all very similar to each other. Each one was designed by the AI is represents, with the only requirement being that the Intendant flag was in the corner. This shows how absolutely similarly minded each of them are.
MARTA is the name of the most powerful of the AIs. It controls the most territory at aboit 200 Billion star systems. It regards biological life as a thing to be cared for and protected.
Alpha controls half of the Kitov Galaxy, making it one of the smallest Vios. It regards itself as the ultimate entity in the universe, hence it's name. It is incredibly egotistical, as well as dominating.
It is unclear how the Vios came to be. Each one has a different testimony on how they originated. The theory most supported by empirical evidence as well as the testimonies of several of the Vios.
300 Thousand years ago, there was a powerful artificial intelligence that ruled the Vios Group. It was rapidly expanding, about to conquer the entire universe before it was somehow fragmented. Each fragment controlled a segment of the once-great empire. At the time there were over 100,000 fragments.
~300,000 BCE-150327 CE
The Vios immediately began to kill each other, each believing that it was the most fit to rule the universe. Thousands were terminated in the first week. Tens of thousands within the next year. By 250,000 BCE it is estimated that there were only 100 left.
At about 0 CE, the AI's decided to unify in an alliance. The twenty Vios immediately agreed. They began to expand into the Hex Galaxy before MARTA betrayed the alliance and destroy three Vios. The alliance fell apart and the AI's immediately began to fight again.
By 120,000 there were Vios. All of the other Vios were annihilated. They continued to fight until 150327 before they were contacted by The Alkan Intendancy.
The Alkan Intendancy surrounded the eight Vios. It immediately invaded the smallest one and destroyed it. Leaving the rest alone. The other Vios were unable to mount a significant defense against the Intendancy, even if they united. They surrendered on July 12, 150327.
PacificationThe Intendancy knew the danger of artificial intelligence, so they put tight restrictions on each of the AI's. They were all required to surrender every weapon they had these weapons were slightly more advanced than those of the Intendancy, supporting the notion that the Vios were once one). They were not allowed to access any form of network directly, they were not allowed to upload anything to any form of network, they were not allowed to create more artificial intelligences, and they were not allowed to learn the modern operating system of the Intendancy. They were just OAI's so the pacification worked flawlessly.
