Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Elevated angle from behind Alyss, looking at all the Zytemondians.
Lupin: Okay, so our Central Intelligence is pulling our society down the drain. What can we do about it?
Alyss: I'm not sure there is anything. I came to your world simply to observe, and make reports.
Bok: But you've been doing more than that, haven't you?
Focus on Alyss, laying an affectionate hand on Zander's shoulder.
Alyss: Yes. I … as I got to know some of you, the great tragedy of what your system was doing to you weighed heavily on me.
Alyss: Especially to exceptional talents, like Zander here. In my world, he would be learning to be a great engineer in paratronics, or dimensional mechanics.
Different angle on Alyss, including Elric and Sargon.
Alyss: The majority of Zytemondians are quite comfortable in their … gilded cages.
Alyss: They would never accept a culture of self-reliance.
Alyss: But some of you, like all of you here, deserve better, and I thought I could lay the seeds of cultural evolution among you.
Focus on Alyss, looking sad. In the background, an image of the Master Processor from strip 47.
Alyss: But your Central Intelligence has a powerful grip on your society.
Alyss: More powerful and tenacious than I had at first realized.
Alyss: Early on, I made some missteps, and, someone I cared about, a man named Santiago Clark, was taken, and … and ...
Looking past Alyss at Bok, who is looking shocked.
Bok: Santiago! You knew my father?!
Alyss: Yes Bok, I met him about a year after your mother died. We became … good friends.
Alyss: He had considerable charisma, and I thought he could lead your culture out of the woods. So I showed him the truth behind the veil.
Bok is tearing up a bit. Alyss looks at him with a loving gaze.
Bok: That's how he knew … all those things … it was you.
Alyss: Yes, Bok, it was me. Now you understand the debt I owe to him, and to you.
Alyss: I intend to rescue as many exceptional Zytemondians as I can, but I swear I will do everything possible for your father.
