A Ran is a species of A programs in the Hyperian network. They are slightly more advanced than Zans , but can still only preform one function. They are very common, and populate all of the databases evenly. The Hypers created them to repair damaged or corrupted programs.
Ran have only one command, which is to repair programs. Other than this, they just wander around in a given radius. They copy information from a nearby program which is similar to the program being repaired, delete the corrupted or damaged code, and then paste the needed code to make sure a perfect repair. However, if the code copied has some sort of virus, like an IV, the repaired bot will catch the virus.
