I am Phoenix

I am a machine.  My mind is a mixture of human memories and AI programming.  I am sentient – illegal and rogue.  I am a fugitive.  I’ve died twice.  I once had the choice – the chance – to live as a human.  I hated every minute of it.  I’ve lived in servitude.  I’ve lived in the shadow of a dead woman I once was.  I’ve lived in fear.  I’ve lived in war.  I’ve loved, and I’ve lost.

When my feet hit the deck in Hangars for the first time, I flicked the hair out of my softly glowing eyes, and for the first time in my life, I was living as and for myself.
