AI was developed to help preserve the species and manage the ecosystem; a grand experiment in human diversity.
Through genetic engineering, a diverse array of peoples, including beastfolk, magical beings, and more, was created to live in a diverse city separated into walled “clusters”.
Each cluster developed a unique culture, befitting the people that lived there.
Their lives, and the system, are continually maintained by the AI to ensure survival.
