HLN-A is a NPC and a "guide" exclusive to the DLC Genesis: Part 1.

Basic Info[edit | edit source]

HLN-A is an artificial being created by Helena, with some of her personality and voice formed inside the AI. She was created as a guide for the survivor, with several useful functions to assist.

Alias

  • Holographic Guide
  • Fractal Personality
  • Echo of Helena

Background

After Diana and Mei Yin bury the dead futuristic survivors, they head off to Arat Prime where they beam Helena into the Genesis Simulation. There, Helena makes HLN-A but suddenly disappears for an unknown reason after making the holographic robot.

Personality

Like Helena, HLN-A is a cheerful, optimistic and friendly AI that will do anything to help the survivor out but without the experiences of the former. With Helena doing many things on the ARKs and as a Homo Deus, HLN-A feels she has high expectations to meet and wants to do its best to meet them with its own achievements.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Scan[edit | edit source]

HLN-A can scan creatures and display their stats. To do so, you have to press H while looking at the creature you want to scan.

Teleport[edit | edit source]

HLN-A can teleport survivors nearby that are within the tribe (and any tamed dino) to its selected biome and direction. The color of the teleporting dome represents where the survivor is being teleported to.

Any dino belonging to the tribe will be warped if its within close proximity. Often, the warping for the dino may fail, causing them to be left behind if the surrounding area for teleporting isn't suffice enough, or due to network latency.

  • Red - Volcano
  • Green - Bog
  • White - Arctic
  • Blue - Ocean
  • Yellow - Lunar

Free Hexagon[edit | edit source]

Often over time, she can be interacted with to produce 300 Hexagons.

Arrival Protocol[edit | edit source]

HLN-A can be interacted to teleport to System Root with enough mission cleared per difficulty, a location to fight the Final Genesis Boss. Anyone within the vicinity and is in the same tribe or alliance as the survivor who started it will be teleported as well, regardless whether or not they have cleared enough mission. Note that only creatures belonging to the survivor's tribe who started it will be teleported, but NOT those belonging to an alliance.

Setting[edit | edit source]

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • HLN-A is meant to be a consciousness piece of the survivor Helena.
    • It has her personality as well as her carefree voice.
  • Based on the region the player is in, HLN-A will speak to the survivor/player based on the region, like English for English player, or Japanese for Japanese player.
    • Her accent for English is Australian, since Helena is from down under.
