corttana:

we had no way of knowing that the forerunners were not your only enemy. weakened from our conflict, we were no match for the parasite which pursued you.

in the forerunners’ quest for transcendence, the composer had been intended to bridge the organic and digital realms. it would have made us immortal but its results soured. the stored personalities fragmented, and our attempts to return them into biological states created only abominations.
