corrupt company which specializes in artificial intelligence (both tangible and in online program only) with its current aim being to find a way to transfer living people into AI form, strictly in order to profit off of it despite claims saying otherwise. creates a number of AI who are either pseudo-reincarnations or new people entirely for the main goal of finalizing the product, which has yet to be fully realized.

program based AI are more commonly made after real people (with the creators having that as their main purpose) and made to bring them back to life, so they have NO access to an actual robot body
the robots are ones that they (relatively legally) made on real people

no AI has to be based on someone who is/was alive in-universe
