God of Joltan's deserts, Lord of Scrapwall and child of Unity, Helix is a powerful AI with ambitions of world domination. Originally created to be the herald and servant of the more powerful Unity, it has now severed ties with its 'parent' and claimed its own divinity.
Helix's 'true' form is that of a large, scorpion-like construct of awe-inspiring destructive capability. However since arriving in Scrapwall, it has claimed an ancient, partially buried excavator machine as its domain, and built itself a network of computer systems to expand its reach. It now effectively occupies the entire structure, and is able to observe and interact with almost all parts of its domain at once.
The computer network it now resides in has also
expanded its divine powers, even allowing it to grant
spells to its worshippers. In this way Helix has begun
acting as the resident god of the city, with plans to
expand its reach ever further as its power grows.
