Introducing…DIONE OG05

Have you seen the latest OGIENOID drop from our team? DIONE OG05 now has a page all about her! While our team is hard at work decoding the message we found in the bottle near our building, we’ve released what we have been able to read. The strangest thing is that there was a link provided on the weathered paper.

What are your first impressions of DIONE OG05? We would love to know what you think and what you look forward to about her release! DIONE OG05 is slated for release in May 2022!

Okay, I Have Had It With This Glitter. Ceren, What Is Going On?

For the past several weeks, glitter has been covering the recording booth. I have no clue why, and I’m tired of going home covered in glitter. Oh – there’s a note on my desk…

‘Kiko, make sure you inform everyone in the memo that VIRTUS OG02 now has a portion of her live page up. As for the glitter situation, VIRTUS OG02 is finishing up her last recording session this week. The glitter will be gone afterward. If you see any butterflies or bows within the next month, I plead the fifth. Keep up the great work.

-Ceren, STUDIO OGIEN CEO

OH! VIRTUS OG02! That makes much more sense now. Ah haha.

Well, since I have the green light from Ceren herself, let’s introduce VIRTUS OG02!

Re-Introducing VIRTUS OG02

Re-Introducing VIRTUS OG02

This week’s re-introduction post is all about the yellow OGIENOID, VIRTUS OG02! Now, VIRTUS OG02 is not yet officially released, so this post is more accurately an “introduction” rather than a “re-introduction.” Still, we’ve teased her character a bit in the past, and our goal is to bring our audience up to speed on new character development. So our post today serves as the official introduction for VIRTUS OG02 as we prepare her new voicebank release for 2022.

Name Origins

Virtus – /vɜːˈtuːz/

The Roman goddess of bravery, as well as the personification of Roman virtue. Closely associated with Honos (the Roman God of honor), the two were frequently honored together, such as in the Temple of Virtus and Honos in Rome.

We always planned Honos and Virtus to be a pair and couple. Therefore, we wanted to pick a pair of names that were deeply intertwined.

A Blank Canvas

VIRTUS OG02 is the second member of the OGIENOID series, an unplanned addition. When she was first created, she was a unique made-to-order android for the advertisement industry. Designed as a blank slate, VIRTUS OG02 had no set identity, personality, or appearance. Usually, she possessed gray “skin” and colorless eyes. However, when used for an appearance in a commercial, the respective clientele would change her identity with contacts, wigs, and body paint. She could become anyone, but it left her feeling empty.

VIRTUS OG02 Becomes Obsolete

After 8 long years, her acting career came to a halt. Suddenly, her tear ducts malfunctioned, causing her to appear as if she was constantly crying. Rather than repair her, the company decided to deactivate and destroy her, as she was an outdated model. Unfortunately, VIRTUS OG02 overheard the plans and fled.

HONOS OG04 Finds VIRTUS OG02

Alone and afraid, she wandered the streets until HONOS OG04 found her and brought her to STUDIO OGIEN. Afterward, VIRTUS OG02 discovered who she was and requested a new, permanent appearance. Because of her love for yellow and gold, she would be known as the yellow OGIENOID. The addition of orange as her secondary color was attributed to HONOS OG04. To honor all she’d been through as well as her seniority as the oldest android of the group, her fellow OGIENOIDs decided she should receive the “02” OGIENOID number.

The Present

The Triad Performs

In the story’s timeline, she has been missing for several years. In short, no one is quite sure where she is or if she’s even alive.

Her current representation to the public is outside of the story’s universe. But, as her audience knows her, VIRTUS OG02 has fun performing with her friends every day!

Character Description:

VIRTUS OG02 is a calm and elegant lady. A lover of the arts and design, she spends her free time running a side business specializing in fashion and jewelry design. In addition, she is an incredibly giving person, bending over backward to make sure each of her friends has the perfect, most special custom outfit for their most special occasions.
