Rogue neural-sciantist and programmer
Doctor David Kaydick was a Research Scientist who was protected and hidden by Omni Consumer Products for conducting unauthorized medical research on humans in their highly secretive FOCUS project. With the resources of OCP he established his own private fiefdom based upon technologies under his control. He took multiple slaves, who he used as test subjects in his experiments, and believed himself to be the private ruler of his own demesne of New Detroit. During his time in hiding, he developed a relationship with Ann R. Key which led to the birth of his daughter Jordan. Kaydick, having no loyalty to his family, would soon use his daughter in his experiments. He implanted a fork of a pre-fall military AI called Legion into her EGO as an incubator, but Jordan and Ann were able to escape him.
With his FOCUSED slaves and LEGION AI Kaydick reprogrammed several municipal robots of Delta City and used them in an effort to recover his daughter from her mother. After capturing Jordan, he was able to recover the human-fusion capable fork of Legion and attempted to upload it into OCP’s S.A.I.N.T.; however, he was stopped as LEGION became increasingly difficult to control as it pursued it’s own side-interests as it spread throughout the infrastructure of New Detroit Colony and Delta City, discovering the existence of FIREWALL.
Knowing his only means to infiltrate S.A.I.N.T. was now by direct interface, Kaydick used his FOCUSED slaves to defeat OCP security and gain entry to OCP Headquarters and into the S.A.I.N.T. Chamber. Kaydick was able to interface with S.A.I.N.T. and successfully uploaded the Legion Virus into S.A.I.N.T., bypassing the system’s safeguards. This new LEGION AI, having developed it’s own Basilisk Hack technology due to it’s inherent understanding of human cognition due to it’s fusion with Jordan, threw off the control of Kaydick during this crucial moment he and Ann were both infected by Legion and were killed as she tried to stop him.
