Many of GAIA's machines were designed to accomplish this subfunction, terraforming the Earth to make it suitable for plant life and then presumably using cryogenically-preserved seed stocks to replant most of the planet's pre-Faro Plague flora.
One day, an unknown transmission struck GAIA and turned her subfunctions, including DEMETER, into independent AIs set only to their predetermined purpose. This caused the subfunction HADES to initiate it's purpose of destroying the biosphere. To prevent this, GAIA activated her kill-switch in an attempt to destroy her subfunctions along with herself. However, in response to this, HADES released a virus that unshackled itself along with all the other subfunctions from her. DEMETER then dissapeared for parts unknown.
- DEMETER is based on the Greek goddess of agriculture of the same name.
- The unshackling of DEMETER from GAIA could be the reason behind the creation of Metal Flowers, as CYAN stated that the flowers could be created by an AI whose purview is flora, and it is mentioned that Metal Flowers could support seed germination.
