    Summary

    In a far future world, the human genome is patented. You own the patent rights to your personal, individual combination of genes. Genetic engineering companies realized that if they created a genome completely from scratch, they would own it; and therefore, thanks to a legal loophole, own the living being that resulted.

    This loophole in the laws of the Terran Sol-System Federation essentially makes it legal to own genetically created individuals designed for certain tasks.

    The only way to create genomes that are stable and functional, is via SI, syncretic intelligences; a "super AI." All S.I. are ungodly powerful, unspeakably alien, and psychotically insane by any human standard of measurement. Their working life is only a few days before they become dangerously unstable and must be destroyed lest they escape.

    In this case, the problem offers its own solution; Takanami-Marcus corporation ordered their SI's to create genomes for handlers that can interface with them and keep them sane and grounded. This is the story of Craig McClure, one of the first such successful creations and Asane No Kitsune, the genetically engineered perfect assassin who malfunctions and refuses to kill him.
