The second protagonist is world-weary, technophobic Doctor Charlie Regis. An experienced agent for city's police force. CEL is the extended arm of Central, the AI responsible for controlling the city, and Regis and his work partner are chasing an outlandish SerialKiller, known only as "the Mindjacker" for his reputation of ripping all of his victims' information directly from the brains, killing them in the process. As Regisinvestigates the case, however, Regis soon finds himself embroiled in strange case of cloak and daggers in Newtown's seedy underworld, caught in a net of blackmail and deception, and even Central doesn't appear to be entirely on the level anymore

'''''Technobabylon''''' is a {{Cyberpunk}} point-and-click {{adventure game}}. Taking place im the year 2087, in futuristic city of Newtown, the game follows three protagonists. From their perspectives, the player gets a view from the ground of their society and how technology has altered the way we think.:

The first is the unemployed agoraphobic, Latha, who prefers living her life inside the online world of the Trance as her avatar Mandala, and not spend any more time in the real world, or "Meatspace" as she calls it, than she absolutely has to. When she’s nearly killed in an explosion in her apartment complex, she's forced to leave her sanctuary and try to figure out who's after her and why.

The second is the world-weary, technophobic Doctor Charlie Regis. As an experienced agent for city's police force, CEL, the extended arm of Central, the AI responsible for controlling the city, is chasing an outlandish SerialKiller, known only as "the Mindjacker" for his MO of extracting all of his victims' information directly from the brains, killing them in the process. As he investigates the case, however, Regis soon finds himself embroiled in strange case of cloak and daggers which involves Newtown's seedy underworld, hacking, blackmailing, and even Central doesn't appear to be entirely on the level...

The third is Regis' younger, more headstrong and optimistic partner in CEL, Max Lao. Where Regis distrusts newer forms of technology, Max fully embraces them, and works on his on-hand technician. Despite Regis' reputation for being difficult to work together with, he and Max have gradually carved out a bound of mutual trust. And when Regis lands himself in trouble, Max takes it upon herself to help him out.
