|Paradigm City. A City of Amnesia. Forty years ago everyone lost their memory, but humanity continues to survive. They've learned to operate machinery, produce electricity, and go on living each day at a time. Still, there's something missing in a town with no past and no history of what has come before.|
Roger Smith is a Negotiator, hired to negotiate disputes between parties, and Roger enjoys a reputation for being the best at his job. But he has an ace up his sleeve...a rather big ace. He controls a Megadeus called the Big O, a wondrous piece of technology from before the age of Amnesia. Occasionally, fragments of memories appear, and with them often comes trouble. The Big O comes in handy for subduing such dangers, but does it serve some greater purpose? Together with the unusual R. Dorothy Wayneright and his loyal butler Norman, Roger Smith keeps Paradigm City safe from the nightmare of memories.

Editor's NoteParadigm City, a futuristic metropolis, has lost its past. A mysterious occurrence, known only as "The Event", has stolen the memories of the city's denizens and left them under oppressive police rule. While Paradigm City's collective population struggles to remember their past, Roger Smith, a "Negotiator", seems to have a connection to the city's past and sets about investigating this mystery. With the help of the Big O, a crime fighting robot suit, Mr. Smith searches the underbelly of the city for an answer as he tries to uphold his sworn duty to protect the populace.
