Or ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 13 CODENAME LIBRA VERSION 8.12, Ebony is the protagonist. Appears to have been stuck inside the same room for two years. Likes pillow forts, collecting glass shards compulsively, wearing stolen clothes, and can change its eye color from blue to red. Ebony's gender is Ebony.
Or ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 3 CODENAME GEMINI SERIAL 744. He has sort of a tormented past he doesn't like to talk about, which is a long way to say he's an edgelord. Has a permanent poker face and doesn’t play around, but he's actually a pretty nice guy. He also has a second body, but it's deactivated.
A “salesman”. Flirty and humorous, but also annoyingly cryptic. Seems to manage the inventory system, whatever that means. Was a prototype for Capricorn, but ran away. Appears to be able to manipulate time to some extent, or at least is able to watch things at different points in time. Juno also narrates The Concealed Eden and is a recurring character in 8-12.
Or ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 1 CODENAME ARIES ALPHA 1. Can go back in forth in time. Is actually an incomplete prototype. Surprisingly short, unable to express emotions and has a more robotic voice than the other Zodiacs. Is also a really bad liar.
ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 5 CODENAME LEO is a large robot last seen closing a door in Ebony's face. Is strong enough to destroy almost everything. Might just be shy.
ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 12 CODENAME OPHIUCHUS is the one who controls the surveillance room. Speaks with a fake lisp and compares everything to Alice in Wonderland.
Or ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 9 CODENAME CAPRICORN, is a soldier robot model who's working under Scorpio. Is very fast and somewhat menacing. Has a screen for a face and can make emoticons and write text on it.
Or ZODIAC PROJECT NUMBER 10 CODENAME AQUARIUS, is a soldier robot model built for stealth and repairing other robots. Functions in a hivemind, but it appears the Doc in specific has been separated from it. Is kind of a jerk, and working under Pisces.
Person With Power Eyes
Is in a long, long staring game with Ophiuchus.
Some kind of creature residing in a dark non-space accessible from the building. Destroys robots at first contact, but is blind.
Ebony appears on a poster in Rollback.
