An orphaned race of sentient mechanical people. Left alone after their only superior was scrapped to make the Fragmented. Despite being Instantiated themselves, they do not possess any superior ability to control or tame other instantiated or their technology. Any ability to do so must be learned just like any other race. In face, they are remarkably similar to any other of the hominid in terms of capability (after all, they were made to emulate them). However, the Standing tend to have at least one strong personality quirk. AI’s never did quite perfect replicating the irrationality of thinking species.
