Ben is an automata who was once a human. He and his family were in a big traffic accident in Midtown, in which he and his family died. However, Ben owed outstanding debt to the debtcorps and upon dying was turned into an automata and has been forced to work for cloudpunk indefinitely since. Ben blames CORA for the death of his family after overhearing a worker cleaning up the accident he died in say CORA was responsible.
As Rania's controller during her cloudpunk shift, he supplies nav points for jobs and helps her to understand life in Nivalis. He also keeps Rania company at times with non work related conversations, such as when Rania is going up to the Spire for the first time. 041b061a72
