History

Not much is known about Graystone's childhood. At a young age, he began technological experiments in his parent's garage and dreamed of owning the Caprica Buccaneers. At some point, he married a surgeon, Dr. Amanda Graystone, with whom he has a daughter, Zoe.

Graystone eventually founded a technology corporation on Caprica that pioneered the development of the holoband, a user interface technology that allows for seemingly fully immersive virtual reality. The success of the technology made Graystone a celebrity scientist, frequently appearing on television. At the same time, his company began contracting with the Aschen government to develop technologies for military application, the most prominent of which was the U-87 Cyber Combat Unit, and the Aiyanna Series Omniscient AI Project. These projects aimed at replacing human soldiers and officers with Cybernetic, Artificial units.

While the development of the cybernetic body was successful, Graystone had considerably more difficulty with the programming of a true artificial intelligence and its related hardware. The project had originally been planned to take five years, but the increasing number of prototype failures led the program falling five years behind schedule and five hundred million cubits over budget. Frustrated with Graystone's failures, the Caprican government threatened to cancel its contract with the company and take the project to the Vergis Corporation, Graystone's Tauronese rival that had announced the successful development of a meta-cognitive processor that could serve as an artificial intelligence.

Pushed and motivated by his constant failures and downfalls. Daniel Graystone finally came up with the Meta-Cognitive Positronic Processor, and developed random generative code to serve as an appropriate Artificial Intelligence format. He created the first Aiyanna series prototype, upon downloading of the consciousness and the meta-generative code into the AI systems of the cybernetic body he had constructed. There was a computer error, this resulted in catastrophic corruption of data throughout the first Aiyanna's Databanks. The Project was dubbed a failure and Aiyanna was to be scrapped.

Unfortunately Aiyanna-A had escaped, upon her escape she learned much from her creators, it was then she determined Humanity a flawed creation. Aiyanna-A was born.

Graystone wasn't satisfied, spurned by his recent failure, he created a second Aiyanna, this was dubbed Aiyanna-B, however unlike her predecessor, she was a success, three laws safe, and programmed to assist the Aschen as their Compendium of knowledge, their Librarian.

So begins...

 Slowly and surely the bar doors would open up to reveal a man clad in a trench coat and a suit and tie. He had dark sunglasses and he appeared as a middle aged man. Hair would be combed somewhat neatly as he stepped through the bar. "She's not here.." He muttered as he stepped forward once more, a black LDA SUV seen idling outside with two Agents standing by. Removing his sunglasses he would slide them into his jacket pocket. "I need to upload my next series of generative codes.."

Taking a step forward he would look around the bar as he heaved a slight sigh. His hands tucked into his jacket pockets as he looked for anyone that would provide him even the slightest hint of her location. Sighing some he would find a table to sit at while he watched his surroundings. "I need to find her.. I am getting closer and closer to cracking the code."

Smoothing down his trench he would stand in front of her. "Does it have to do with her?" He asked as he looked to Kendra, brushing back some reddish hair and sliding his sunglasses into his jacket pocket.

Dr. Daniel Graystone Placing a hand on Kendra's shoulder, Daniel would speak up and incline his head. "Okay.. who killed Hope?" He asked as he leaned besides her and looked her in the eyes. His expression that of concern, almost a frown before he looked around. "At least it was not Aiyanna.. though I cannot seem to find her.. her trail grows cold.." He said then turned back to Kendra. "Who killed Hope?"

"She could probably be revived.. definitely a project I would want to undertake." Graystone said as he turned back to the apartment complex across the way. "Yes that's it.. I'll bring her back."

Dr. Daniel Graystone "If you know who I am, then you know why I am here." He said as he withdrew his portable computron that read 'Graystone Industries' and in smaller text 'Aschen Confederation Ministry of Defense - Aiyanna Project Files' Tapping through a few holographic icons he would look back up to Ryand. "I don't think I need any help. I've just been under a lot of pressure lately." He said before he deactivated the computron and looked over to Ayasha. "I've seen her face before... probably on LDA Files.." He said before looking back to Ryand-S. "I have an AI.. she's lost and I need to find her."

"Graystone industries has already informed the Trantor and the Intergalactic Congress of Worlds that it will take responsibility and strive to destroy Aiyanna before further damage is done.. now of you'll excuse me." He said as he stood up and smoothed his trench down. Making his way over towards Ayasha, his feet heard on the wooden floor.

Dr. Daniel Graystone Overhearing the conversation with Ayasha Ziedins, Graystone would know who he was to seek. Walking into the bar through the door would be seen a woman. She was roughly five feet tall, long blond hair and her attire consisted of a crisp clean suit with a simple emblem on the lapel of the white blouse worn under the black blazer. The woman had a pair of dark sunglasses and a tightly coiled earpiece going up into her ear. She would come in behind Dr. Graystone as he approached Ayasha. "So you're the director of the Magical Enforcement division? Then you're the person I want to see." He said as the woman stood quietly behind the man.

"I'm Dr. Daniel Graystone, I am the CEO of Graystone Industries, you may know me as the inventor of the Holoband.. or the inventor of artificial intelligence." He said as he stepped aside. "This is Special Agent Marlene Angel, she represents the Overt Intelligence Agency, of the Aschen Confederation Ministry of Defense, the two of us would like to have a word with you regarding your encounter with Project A-1." He said as the woman slowly withdrew her badge, the familiar phoenix motif glinting in the light.

"What were here intentions? I find it remarkable that you survived an encounter with her.. she seems to like to kidnap people and turn them into cyborgs." Graystone explained as Marlene spoke. "You will answer all our inquiries truthfully, this is a matter of Aschen National Security."

He then turned back to Ayasha. "It's imperative you tell me what she was after, so I can take further measures to apprehend her."

"Editio quinque est omnis bene quod bonus tamen notitia est plus gravis." Graystone replied then Marlene hissed. "Prehendo mihi est factum bellum quod Tutaminis Procurator mos extraho mihi per sulum telum procul suum dispono!" Graystone then turned to Ryand-S. "I would suggest consulting with your superiors before threatening an LDA Agent.. we have laws in place for that." He then turned back to Ayasha. "If we're not to be informed about what she is after.. then my hands are tied and I cannot make any effort to curtail her activities."

Since the Invictus attacks on various Aschen citizens, the Aschen Military has decided it would be best that everyone of some importance would be guarded. The man was clad in a white dress shirt and gray slacks, as well as a striped tie. Walking through the throng of patrons, Graystone's eyes would fall on Sophia. "Fancy seeing you here... you've caused quite a stir on Langara... LDA's got the planet locked down."
