Object Classes

Primary Classes

These are the most common Object Classes used in RPC articles, and make up the bulk of the objects.

Alpha

alpha

Alpha-class RPCs are anomalies that are easily and safely contained. This is often due to the fact that the Authority has researched the RPC well enough that containment does not require significant resources or that the anomalies require a specific and conscious activation or trigger. Classifying an RPC as Alpha, however, does not mean that handling or activating it does not pose a threat.

Beta

beta

Beta-class RPCs are anomalies that require more resources to contain completely or where containment isn't always reliable. Usually this is because the RPC is insufficiently understood or inherently unpredictable. Beta is the Object Class with the greatest scope, and it's usually a safe bet that an RPC will be this class if it doesn't easily fall into any of the other standard Object Classes.

As a note, any RPC that is autonomous, sentient and/or sapient is generally classified as Beta, due to the inherent unpredictability of an object that can act or think on its own.

Gamma

gamma

Gamma-class RPCs are anomalies that are exceedingly difficult to contain consistently or reliably, with containment procedures often being extensive and complex. The Authority often cannot contain these RPCs well due to not having a solid understanding of the anomaly, or lacking the technology to properly contain or counter it. A Gamma RPC does not mean the RPC is dangerous, just that it is simply very difficult or costly to contain.

Special Object Classes

Neutralized

neutralized

Neutralized RPCs are anomalies that have either been fully understood, exhibit no more anomalous properties, or destroyed. Neutralized RPCs pose no danger to the Authority.
