Joam was a hot courier in
a Los Angeles falling apart, where you lived or died by your reaction time
behind the wheel. He was the best, but the best wasn't good enough. Eventually,
he knew, he'd just be a splat on the pavement, frying in the 120 degree sun.
Electing for experimental vehicle-integration surgery, Joam is merged with his
ride. Now Joam's not only the fastest, most feared courier in LA: he's an
absolute legend. But the experimental surgery was experimental. Joam's body is falling apart.
Pretty soon he'll just be consciousness trapped within a machine.
