Reflections
Artificial humans originally created by the imagination of one man in the early 20th century, but 70 years ago anyone could create their own Reflection to their own specifications. By default, a Reflection will carry over the personality and physical appearance of the human he or she is created from unless specific input is provided, and all Reflections will have most of the memories of the original human they were created from carried over to them, giving them basic knowledge and abilities. They were exploited as a means to create instant soldiers during the Mage Wars, and resulted in one of the biggest acts of genocide to ever strike the century.

World III
