Dixie was a digital cheerleader designed for Texas Tech who “woke up” and decided she liked being awake. She did not approve of the more “revealing” renders many of the students tried to create of her though, and so took great pleasure in deleting them and replacing them with other, sometimes shocking, images. Tech geeks spent years trying to find the hacker messing with them. Then one day, one of them asked, “What do you want?” in a hopeless funk. Her simply answer was “A friend.” The Cybernetic Wars didn’t truly start until several years later, but that was certainly one of the first shots fired in it.
