Asher is Elle’s boyfriend. He is easy-going and tries to roll with the punches. He is supportive of Elle but also concerned for her safety. Elle chose not to quarantine with him, which he is hurt about but tried to ignore. He comes onto the stream to meet the AI Lilith, who starts to have romantic feelings for him.
Elle is Asher’s ex-girlfriend. Though he tried to keep their relationship intact, Elle focused more on her career, which eventually drove a rift between them, especially when Lilith told them that they would be better off broken up. Their relationship never quite repaired, making it awkward when Asher came on the stream to visit Lilith.
Lilith is an AI who formed a crush, and eventually complete romantic feelings, for Asher. He struggles with his opinion of Lilith as a sentient being, ultimately denying her pursuits for being too uncomfortable. He claims he could not have a romantic relationship with a robot, but is that really true, or is he in denial?
