Functions are potent programs capable of accomplishing a variety tasks upon the battlefield. A Function will either focus its talent on a specific utility in the Aetherium, or a variety of simple abilities. These programs are usually the manifestation of users that lack the extraordinary talent, the hardware, or the drive of an Avatar, but resemble more closely an above average mind’s ability within the Aetherium. As such, Functions generally make up the processing core of programs in a Collective.

Subroutines are the least demanding programs that an average user can manifest in the game. Some Subroutines are essentially programs that run autonomously without the intervention of a human consciousness. These usually fulfil a very basic role and excel at one task to the exclusion of most others. Subroutines appear in two basic forms: linked or segmented. Linked and segmented programs are Subroutines that are comprised of multiple models.
