Caryatid System By: Scrasamax

Humanity created a code that prevents them from creating sentient weapons. There are many other codes they created in similar fashion. It is somewhat unsurprising that despite this code, humanity proceeded to create sentient weapons. When the humans created the caryatid systems, they placed a new code on their creations. Will they be surprised when we adhere to the geas placed on us as rigidly as they follow their own laws?
