Lore

Bravado is kind of an enigma on Lux, he's deployed there for reasons classified in their briefing code, and has no mission statement. All he knows is that there's a reason he's deployed and he will fulfill his duty at whatever cost. Previous data records that have been programmed in show them as a some sort of excelling battle AI, though memories programmed are known to be faked to envoke a sense of confidence in battle AIs. He has a case of robot-amnesia if you will, and though he cannot express it for fear of shutdown, neither can he think it, but he loathes to be unplugged from the system and will silently try to declassify their motives to see if it's worth the risk.
