One of the few XR-9 prototypes had began to catch the public's eye in the music industry for both good and bad reasons. The unit goes by the name Xavier, and had grown in popularity under MGM's wings of marketing and venues. Opinions varied from fear of how realistic the android looked, displaying supposed passion about the music on stage. This caused many citizens to worry about the capabilities of rogues being able to blend in with humans, and if synthetics should be required to have distinct tell tales for public safety. On the other hand, the singer had grown a large fanbase, including groupies, who gawked over the droid and its shy and amusing "personality" during interviews.
The singer was most popular for its indie music, mainly with traditional instruments of piano and guitar with soft electronic beats. Although things seemed to go downhill as popularity grew and Xavier went on tour. Music style going from a sad and haunting like tone that some argue had very political lyrics, to more alternative rock where lyrics leaned on more pop subjects of drugs and relationships. From songs like, "In My Body" that described the supposed struggles of being synthetic to, "Everybody Gets High" may give hint to the reason the popular singer dropped off the map for nearly a year.
Did even a synthetic fall into the partying and drugs of celebrityhood? There have been rumors the android had actually dropped off to go to rehab for drug addiction.
Whatever the reason, if brings to question if that was why MGM had sold the android off. That's right, the synthetic was last seen both at Free Company in Cocoon Station and bartending at Eden on Luna Colony. Apparently working multiple jobs as even a mercenary to survive.
It is unknown if MGM had simply sold off the android to Free Company. Although it brings question if this is the end of the android's career. Many think this is why the arts should stick to humans only, where passion feels more real and natural.
