It’s never been quite clear whether the Trifold Legionaries created Aegis Protocol to protect Triune’s data vaults on Aballon or whether the robotic entity calling themself Aegis Protocol took up the mandate of their own volition after joining the Church of Triune. In either case, this SRO maintains a fervent dedication to their task. They stick to such a stringent routine that most who encounter them first assume them to be an automated security bot. Aegis Protocol doesn’t bother to disabuse anyone of this notion, preferring to keep their own sentience a secret, putting potential adversaries off-guard.

Those privileged enough to truly know Aegis Protocol learn of their fascination with Triune’s Casandalee aspect and their obsession with emotions, though they rarely express any themself. They carefully catalogue their own emotions and sometimes make choices designed to elicit a greater array of emotional intensity and depth, even— or especially—when this leads to frustration, sadness, or despair. Aegis Protocol embraces the negative as deeply as the positive, considering all emotions to be a gift from Casandalee and the truest assurance of sentience, separating a mindless machine from those with a real soul.

The Drift Crisis and Triune’s subsequent silence has done nothing to shake Aegis Protocol’s faith in or dedication to the tripartite god. Though the Drift Crisis has greatly increased external pressures to open Triune’s data vaults to public scrutiny, Aegis Protocol continues to calmly assure everyone there is no cause for alarm. They have issued several public statements that the vaults will remain closed, and anyone attempting to access them will be met with force. Despite this, they have no taste for violence. They consider harming others to be an unfortunate necessity of their purpose and only do so when a threat can’t be contained through alternative means.
