For other uses of the term, see Matriarch.

The Matriarch is the overseer of MECHA, a prison-realm of the Technocracy.


The Matriarch was created in 1953 when two sister Technocrats were chosen, their minds were scanned and the combination of the two was used as a template for a massive machine intelligence. The resulting creature is viewed by some adherents of the Cult of the Machine with oracle-like awe.

Powerful, efficient and remorseless, the Matriarch rules her Construct with an iron fist. She can manifest nearly everywhere, and everything that happens near the sensors that are planted across MECHA is known to her immediately. She is also able to travel the Digital Web, protecting MECHA against attacks from rogue Technomancers.
