- One of my characters is an illegal (in the 'verse) "upload", she died in a car accident and her well meaning parents had her mind copied into a bio-android.
- Is she their daughter? Or an AI that thinks it's a 17 year old girl? Does it matter?
- Is this illegal because it's immoral or because it questions what it means to be human?
- Another character is the child of a transhuman woman and her Robotic Spouse. What Measure Is a Non-Human? She's torn between her machine nature and her human emotions.
- And this character, a ridiculously human robot who loves humanity with all her "heart": she has flaws and was made by flawed human beings and sent into battle by flawed human beings. Yet she sees democracy as utopia because humans are special
- She remembers when her kind were considered mere robots and not sentient beings.
- And she runs smack into the characters above, for drama of course.
