Contrition's Figure is a prison and rehabilitation center on Seance. It is one of many such sites in the Fleet, but unlike others relies primarily on Mesh-based simulations.
The building was formerly run by the divine Contrition, who created specific, individual Mesh programs for each prisoner. After Contrition was killed, this was not possible, so the number of programs was highly reduced. Now, the main programs available are confrontation (reliving the event), positive ideation (exploring possible other lives in order to use current skills), skill trial and training (learning new skills) and resocialization (meeting and interacting with new types of people).
