2. Earth-Born Axiom
Proprioception means "awareness of the position of one's body"
Story Overview Edit
Amyntas is badly damaged after the Siege of Anicetus and his body has been found by enemy forces. They initiate a memory wipe, essentially ripping wires out of Amyntas. Amyntas' computer interface makes one last effort to figure out where he is before deactivating.
Story Details Edit
At the beginning of the track, Amyntas lies in the rubble, having trouble breathing. [All these sound effects are within the track] Three Empyrean soldiers who landed after the extermination sequence come across Amyntas' body. They radio in for orders and receive memory fragmentation orders towards Amyntas. [Hence why Amyntas has no memory during all of Xenon, which takes place after this event.] The soldiers complete their memory frag and continue hunting for others who are succumbing from the impact.
After the memory wipe, Amyntas' biometric interface attempts to recover the data loss, only to result in its resources being used for basic biometric and bodily functions (Proprioception).
