Forty years ago, amnesia struck all the inhabitants of Paradigm City and in the decades since, life has gone on, despite the loss of history, the loss of past and the loss of self which has struck each and every inhabitant. Roger Smith is one of these inhabitants. A former member of the Military Police, he now makes his living as a negotiator — a combination of private investigator and professional go-between. It's a job that pays well, as his penthouse home at the top of his private building attests.
But when negotiations fail, he has something else to fall back on — Big O, a giant battle robot that he stores in the abandoned subway tunnels under the city. And fall back on it he must, for after forty years, lost secrets and forgotten memories are returning, and with them all manner of threats to Paradigm City and its people. Aided by his butler Norman and the android girl R. Dorothy Waynewright, along with (occasionally) his former commanding officer in the police, Lt. Dastun, and the mysterious and beautiful free agent kown only as “Angel”, Roger faces off against monstrous forces from all manner of enemies while at the same time pursuing the truth behind Paradigm City's lost history.
