Overview

"Perfect Authentic Cadence" refers to a certain chord progression in music theory in which a piece ends on what is considered aesthetically pleasing to the classical ear. P.A.C. themself is a mysterious troll full-body replacement with extensive, obvious cyberware they take care to maintain looking as exotic and inhuman as possible. Their name suggests they see themself as part of some harmony, or perhaps as part of a proper ending. Either way, they seem to have a strange understanding of how to acquire all manner of medical technology - especially cyberware. This is contrasted with a strange difficulty they have practicing medicine under pressure, and an even stranger difficulty they have explaining why they know so much. Given enough time, they will come back with an encyclopedic knowledge of answers to various medical questions, however. All this and a strange proclivity toward nanotechnology have led people to figure out they are a monad, and so no one in the community at large trusts them.
