ASURA-04 is the fourth in a series of experimental Adam bioreplicas created by House Axolotl under mysterious circumstances. He is composed entirely of wetware components and is possessed of a mild personality and unusual attachment to Tesla Soldat.
It was revealed that during the time of her incarceration, Tesla Soldat did perform work on the coding for the ASURA series, but she did not work directly on ASURA-04. Despite this, he bears an intense desire to be near her at all times, a trait apparently not exhibited by other ASURA series bioreplicas (in fact, ASURA-03 seemed not only comfortable but entirely happy to dispatch of Tesla along with the other interlopers during the infiltration of the Axolotl space station in Episode 7).
Only recently, Tesla has discovered the reason behind the ASURA’s motivation and personality. It seems that upon her capture, the codified essence of one of the Nashan remnants was obtained and identified as a result of the long since abandoned Weaver Project. Because of this, Tesla was made to create the basic coding for the ASURA series so that House Axolotl might always have a Lachesis-compatible Hermit template for future developments of the project. ASURA-04 was randomly selected from among the first of the series to be used the test for the integration of the codified essence into a replacement body.
As such, ASURA-04 bears the innate psionic essence of the Nashan remnant, but has a completely altered awareness from his previous form. It is unknown whether or not this is a complication of the Lachesis ability or a quality that can be attributed to the Nashan’s essence. At any rate, he only has vague recollections of his past and weak displays of his former personality, the strongest of which are tied to the emotions and sensations he experienced immediately before being converted into data. This is why he bears such an intense attraction to Tesla Soldat- because before being converted to data, he had experienced strong feelings of gratitude towards the girl for removing his essence from the series of disorienting and restricted host vessels left among the ruins of Votum.
It is suggested that because his essence was left behind on Votum after the great migration that ASURA-04’s original identity was that of a great criminal, similar to that of Naar. However, this is as of yet uncertain. It has been noted that as time passes, ASURA-04’s personality becomes more noteworthy. At the time of his meeting, he spoke in the manner befitting a bioreplica, but over the last few months he has begun to adopt a variety of mannerisms and has begun to display a spectrum of emotional behaviors, ranging from anger to contentment, and at times even boredom- a trait never witnessed in the typical bioreplica who would have no criteria on which to judge the level of emotional stimuli affecting him.
It is worth noting that ASURA-04 does not have a name. ASURA-04 his merely his model and serial number, and he is typically referred to as “the ASURA” by members of his company, particularly individuals who are less sensitive to bioreplicas such as Arro Ceid and Rachael Finn. In time, he could very well recall his previous name, but it is uncertain how the passing of time and the extended period in bodies with restricted awareness will have affected the basic identity of the original essence.
