Bio:

Near-Earth habitats were not fun places to observe the Fall from. Those with the resources quickly relocated away from the homeworld, and those without…well, some lived, some died, and some saw the writing on the wall and beamed their egos out just before something unfortunate happened. In that, however, they were luckier than most of those living on Earth itself, simply by time.
They beat the rush.

Terrence was a young computer specialist at that point in time, splitting his time between securing his home habitat’s infosystems and manning the improvised defense batteries that most everyone near earth had cobbled together as conditions on the surface worsened. When the hammerblow fell, they weren’t anything like enough, and his particular habitat was in a distant enough orbit to get out in time, albeit not corporeally — the last ships had departed some time before.

Even on Titan, which became famous in the years after the Fall of Earth for its liberal policies with regards to morph provisioning, there was a waiting list that grew exponentially as the masses fled Earth. Terrence could have been at the front of that line, but quite simply he found he didn’t mind the bodyless life, at least not nearly so much as the vast majority of the clamoring masses begging and pleading for a new lease on corporeal existence. At first, he simply kept passing his spot in line to others, again and again, until finally he simply and quietly slipped away into the Titan mesh, an independent with no ties to anyone or anything. In a calmer time, that might have made waves, ripples at least, but in the post-Fall chaos… well, if anyone noticed at all. they were probably just grateful to have one less yammering voice begging for a morph.

Over the following years, Terrence became more and more of an outlier as more and more of the vast queue of disembodied egos were processed and resleeved. No one could claim he shirked his duties as a citizen of Titan; he served his conscript term voluntarily, ‘manning’ a section of defense batteries on one of the orbiting battlemoons while working through some of the vast libraries and tutorial archives with the speed and multitasking capability that only an infomorph (or a heavily-augmented morph of some other type, admittedly) can manage. Over the years, he became known in wider and wider circles as a simulspace architect of growing skill and renown, but that reputation was tarnished in Titan’s body-centric philosophical circles by his increasingly-public stance on the virtues of a voluntary infomorph society. It’s a testament to his success in both pure academics and simulspace design that his positive reputation was able to outpace his vocal fringe philosophy.

He came to the attention of Firewall the way many do; by being in at once the wrong and the right place at the right time. A TITANist cell discretely contacted him in an attempt to recruit what they thought, from his own infomorph nature and his outspoken advocacy of the same, would be a like mind. When he was subsequently accosted by a Firewall team who thought HE had been compromised by that same TITANist cell. Some fast talking and a lot of dancing through interconnected systems later, that was sorted out. After some additional intelligence swapping, the Firewall team in question was able to ambush and eradicate the TITANists, and the beginning of a relationship was born.
