Identification chips, or ID chips for short, are basic components that contain a person's identity. Along with providing as a person's identification, these ID chips are also able to track the person's whereabouts if inputted into a database. These are not difficult to manufacture. When Cinder was visiting Peony in the warehouse, she witnesses an android slit the wrist of a dead letumosis patient, then remove the ID chip and store it in a compartment with dozens of other bloodied chips.
In a later visit, Cinder sees Peony die while an android comes to take her dead sister's chip. Cinder knocks out the android with a syringe and slits Peony's wrist to retrieve her ID chip.
Other Uses Edit
- ID chips can work as a tracking device. People not wanting to be found will often cut out their ID chip.
- Lunar fugitives will pay for a dead person's ID chip and use their identity to prevent being found. Immigrating from Luna was illegal and was punishable by death.
