The Machineborn are the native sentient life in the States of the Wode. They are artificial intelligence "NPCs" used to fill out the population of each Liveborn's state. They cannot leave their home state.
All Machineborn have a Concept, the central premise that describes their character, which can be hacked by both the Wode and Liveborn. Examples of Concepts include chancellor Besk's cleverness, Shale's insistence on wearing armor, and Chief Letmere's pragmatism.
