Meet Binder, former nerd computer ace, who was surfing around the internet until the OneSong pulled him into cyberspace.
Or well, it happened sort of like that. Binder before the clarification was nothing short of a computer genius. In many ways, he identified with machines better then people though that anti-social streak isn't that uncommon in the youth. One evening while deep thought and deep in code, Binder achieved a state of 'Weaver-mind' and reached the Periphery. What came next was a promise of perfection, purity, and flawless unity unstained by disorder. The OneSong.
Binder crossed the Gauntlet into the waiting hands of Weaver-spirits, and they remade him. Perhaps through luck, act of fate, or sheer stubbornness, Binder retained much of his individuality. Perhaps this is why he lost his memories, some parting blow from a frustrated Weaver-spirit.
Now he's been dumped into Prospect without much in terms of resources and a compulsion to collect data.
