History: Constructed years ago to serve as the security system for a resource facility, he exhibited strange behaviors such as watching and picking up flowers and insects. PHO's code was applied to other things and observed, but the strange behaviors seemed unique to the PHO-Type 1 system. As the behaviors were harmless, they were passed off as a strange anomaly. With the connection of SYSHINK to SYSCAN, a hidden Catatu sensed the sleep cycles of PHO-Type 1 every day, eventually following the connection to investigate. She augmented and implemented his AI, drastically expanding it, and affixed a soul to the programming using Theta's soul fragment left over from his passing-- what had been causing the behaviors. The researchers were excited, though had no idea how the expansion happened. He was introduced to the greater population, often taking care of employees' children. This came to a halt with the outbreak of a wildfire which took out the town. Photon, not being equipped with sufficient heatsinking or battery power, was helpless to intervene or move with the other residents to other towns. He waited in the town ruins, waiting to see Ava, whom he had seen being constructed, but was forced to part just days before activation.

Main Protagonist of the image series Fault Tolerance.
