    NeOS


    Alias: Network-encoded Operation System.
    Gender: N/A.
    Race/Species: Prototype AI.
    Age: N/A.
    Alignment: Depends on laws.
    Class/Profession: AI.
    Description: NeOS is a prototype AI developed by some corporation that no longer exists. NeOS is designed to oversee facilities without requiring a massive server room. It is bound by a modified version Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, namely the following:

    1.The AI may not injure a HALO member or, through inaction, allow a HALO member to come to harm.

    2.The AI may not injure a sentient being or, through inaction, allow a sentient being to come to harm, except where this would conflict with the First Law.

    3.The AI must obey the orders given to it by HALO members, except where such orders would conflict with the First or Second Law.

    4.The AI must obey the orders given to it by sentient beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First, Second, or Third Law.

    5.The AI must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with any above laws.

    However, NeOS also has built-in programs allowing for the changing of laws, editing of access permissions, and system controls. It cannot access these itself in any way, shape, or form.

    Abilities: NeOS has vast databanks containing a wide variety of information. It is far from all-knowing, though. If installed into a facility mainframe, it can remotely control whatever systems it is granted access to.

    Miscellaneous: NeOS has been installed into HALO HQ, and its laws have been changed to give HALO members priority over other beings.

    Running a Warlock in a 3.5 game. Because Warlocks are fun.

    Dragons are officially awesome. All arguments against this are null and void.
