"Employee of the Month"
Kim Erriston is the head programmer of Project DGA, getting his job role due to his extreme expertise in coding, much smarter than all of the other workers, as computers aren't common in the Mushroom Kingdom. In fact, 40% of Project DGA was programmed by him, including sentience, object detection systems, and speech (although, DGA's speech function was never finished). In the mean time, when his work with DGA slowed down, he started a passion project of his, codenamed DHV, unrelated to AIROM, but willing to have support by them (though never mentioning it to anyone). By the time his code was nearly complete for the passion project, he heard very, very bad news.
He died 4 days after DGA broke out of the building and into a close by forest, and AIROM was never the same without him. Looking to save the company, Tyler Young discovered, and Emma Harris stole the prototype of DHV, confused it for an AI character generator, and planned to show an unfinished, misunderstood project out to the public.
