- The nanomachine colony is a sentient being called "Emeralda" and seems to have a connection to Fei. Rattan claims she is Fei's "daughter" (or more likely, his creation)...
Questions so far
- Who are the "mother" and the "antitype" that Krelian refers to?
- What exactly does Emeralda mean by "Kim"?
- What data did Krelian retrieve from Emeralda?
- What threatens to turn Citan over to the "dark side"?
