What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity. |
in 2044, solar flares have made the Earth's surface radioactive and decimated the Earth's human population. The survivors have built robots, called Pilgrims, to help them rebuild in harsh environments. These robots have two inalterable protocols: They must preserve human life, and they may not modify themselves. Originally seen as mankind's salvation, the robots were venerated. However, when they failed to stop the advance ofdesertification, they were relegated to manual labor and domestic servitude.
Jacq is an insurance claim checker for ROC, the company that makes the robots. One day he investigates a report from Wallace, a cop who shot a robot he claims was modifying itself and that "looked alive". Jacq discovers that the robot had hidden some stolen electronic components, including a rare miniaturized nuclear battery that could power a robot indefinitely, making it independent from the power grid.
The next day, Jacq follows a robot that was stealing parts. When he finds it hiding outside the city walls, it sets itself on fire in an attempt to destroy itself. Jacq salvages the burned robot and takes it back to the city, where it is examined in a lab. Jacq speculates to his friend and boss Robert that there may be a clocksmith—someone who illegally modifies robots—who somehow succeeded in altering the second protocol. Jacq makes a deal with Robert: If Jacq can find the person responsible for altering the robot protocol, Robert will transfer him to a city on the coast, as Jacq fears the city is too dangerous for his wife and unborn daughter. Jacq's dreams reveal that he has childhood memories of the ocean before it dried up.
