- A Clone used for Cheap Labour.
A Guest in Traveller is a Guest Worker. a deliberately created clone intended to be cheap if skilled labour. Guests are force grown and implanted with a recorded personality and skills but not memories. They are skilled duplicates of the originals. Editing of personalities for passivity and compliance is common.
It is a clone that has the same personality (C4, C5, and C6) as the original including all skills and knowledges. A guest has none of the memories of the original template. A cloned Guest also uses the clone DNA die for C1, C2, C3 +1D
Guests without the Skills and Knowledges recording implanted are similar to a clone in that C4 is based on the genetic C4. Unlike a clone C5 and C6 would be automatically 0 as the relict is essentially a blank canvas.
Purpose and Background: Deliberately created clones intended to be cheap skilled labour.
Guests are usually created when the pattern has died or disappeared. When a pattern dies, guests are made and are force-grown to Life Stage 3 and implanted with the pattern’s Recorded Personality (only including skills and knowledges).
In Imperium law a Guest is potentially an ethical and legal nightmare.
A Guest maybe sporting a large, obtrusive marking for identification purposes. The markings mark the Guest as labour.
Reproduction and Life Span
A Guest typically is sterilized when created.
Guests are forcegrown to life stage 3 and thus are subject to force growth accelerating aging patterns. Physical aging begins at life Stage 4 and Mental Aging begins at Life Stage 8. One stage earlier in both cases than the original sophont.
