Datachasers is a webcomic hosted on ComicFury.Datachasers is set in the distant future, in a world still recovering from an apocalypse. In it, humans and androids live side-by-side and face the hazards of their dangerous environment. Though set far into our future, it reflects our past and our present, dealing with the politics and cultures of different people, along with touching on the very fundamentals of humanity.Updates: Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
Datachasers contains examples of the following tropes:
Altum Videtur: New Rome (which is even called Nova Roma by its inhabitants) uses a corrupted version of Latin as the local language. The creators have noted that saying it's "Future Latin" lets them be as accurate or (more often) inaccurate as they like in writing dialogue in that language.
Cat Girl: Dusty and Kat are genetically engineered cat-people.
Cyber Space: The "Infonet" can be accessed via a sort of holographic interface.
Deus Est Machina: The city-states are run by massive Artificial Intelligence Systems that most definitely have their own personalities, motivations, and goals. Fortunately, they're benevolent towards humanity.
Fanservice: Done more tastefully than one might expect in a work with so many pretty female characters.
Gendercide: The "Oblivion Virus" bio-weapon wiped out about half the infectees, while 90% of the survivors were left infertile, and the ones who could still bear children had a low incidence of live male births. Heavy use of medical technology such as artificial wombs and genetic manipulation staved off extinction long enough for the population to stabilize, but females still outnumber males by a fair margin.
Green-Skinned Space Babe: Justified and lampshaded in the case of the plant-based Epiphytes, who have the equivalent of chlorophyll in their skin and can consciously shape their appearance to be aesthetically appealing to humans instead of scary.
Grew Beyond Their Programming: The older Artificial Intelligence Systems, originally intended to provide assistance for human operators, have evolved well beyond their early purpose—to the point where it was the AI systems that stopped the wars wracking the globe by simply refusing to help humans kill each other any more.
Older Than They Look: Anti-aging treatments are in use among the human population, while androids look as old or young as they wish, and the one Epiphyte we've seen has been around a lot longer than her appearance suggests.
