Location: Midtown Manhattan.
Recruiting redundant array capability is part of the job. Before offline data couriering became a thing, RAID.451 agent recruits were selected based on their reliability and anonymity. Once the couriering business became the primary cover, agent/couriers were also selected based on their ability to move quickly and forcefully through the bowels of the city.
As a Senior RAID.451 Agent, Jim Vagabond is a one of the best talent spotters. Once a NYC subway hobo, he has a knack for finding above average recruits who possess just the right amount of crazy to become a RAID.451 agent.
RAID.451: a R.edundant. A.rray of I.nexpensive D.evices; 451 a nod to Ray Bradbury - is an organization dedicated to the offline preservation of data history. We are keepers of a data archive free from network interference, censorship and selective editing. We are numerous and redundant - hiding in plain sight; we are cheap (most of us were homeless when we were recruited); we are replaceable, iterative elements of a massively self-sustaining offline RAID data storage system.
The storm battered the network. While the agent data loss never approached critical. Rebuilding and regenerating the network – always a core mission for Jim Vagabond, became a primary mission after the storm.
