Avatar (TAG) (1) BOX
Avatars are the ultimate expression of war machines designed by the Ur Rationalists, designed to host an Aspect of the EI in combat. In this way, it can control first hand what is happening on the battlefield without having to depend on slow organic support. Avatars are equipped with automatic systems and semi-intelligent weapons that make them look like wary predators, even when they are on stand-by or disconnected by the EI. The images taken from the battlefield show them as silhouettes entering and leaving local space, their hulls shining with sequences of particles, scintillating defensive, gravitational and suppression fields, target acquisition and holographic weaponry controls, a radiation of technology covering the entire spectrum from x-rays to hard light. All around them, the local space continuum swirls around and shines. In reality, Avatars do not need to move in order to hunt but their machines and systems are faster than humans ever could be.
