Null Sect are sentient Matrix entities that have risen from the base machine code of the Matrix. Their integration with the Matrix enables them to track information about themselves and delete it with in minutes of appearing on the open Matrix. Which makes finding information on them difficult.
Motivations[edit | edit source]
They originally believe that the Matrix was intended for non-emerged Matrix users. Because of this belief they wage a silent war against Technomancers and AI. However by 2079, it appears they've taken a more nihilistic belief and wish to remove all connection from the real world. Which has expanded to all personas and even electrical power.
Commentary[edit | edit source]
Null Sect appear to be Xenosapient AIs. Most AI's emerge from programs, but it appears that the Null Sect have emerged from null data, nothing. This probably allows them to distinguish themselves from other AIs while not considering themselves AI at all.
