The Normals now know and accept that they're different...but what they can't decide on is all the rest. Are they still a family? Are they on a fool's errand? Can they trust one another? As they try to figure this all out, the Normals find their first Automaton that they must awaken-so he knows the truth about his existence and has the choice of free will. Only one problem, this Automaton seems to be a MURDERER. Raising the question: do you give awareness to something that's already evil?
