The "Brain of the Many" from System Shock 2


Tau Ceti V


Sentient Biomass




System Shock 2

What is a drop of rain, compared to the storm? What is a thought, compared to a mind? Our unity is full of wonder, which your tiny individualism cannot even conceive.

–The Many, System Shock 2

The Many are a collective biomass of parasitic organisms. It operates as a hive mind and broadcasts telepathic messages as communication. The Many have various parasitic annelids at their disposal which take over the minds and bodies of other lifeforms, rendering them subservient to The Many's collective will.

System Shock 2

The Many were originally engineered by SHODAN to mindlessly serve her will. However, when she was defeated, her experiments grew beyond her control on planet Tau Ceti V. When the Von Braun lands on Tau Ceti V, The Many take over the ship's functions, including its onboard AI, XERXES, and proceed to pilot the ship straight to Earth in order to incorporate its population into its collective identity.
