Quick material insert from Skype
My concept is rapidly becoming fun in my head.
See, at first I was all like ‘it gonna be a military robotz’ and now I’m all ‘it was never in the military’ but it was a military model sold to a PMC as a bodyguard unit. Meat stuff only stops bullets so well after all.
So two $65k robot later and the Company Exec has a pair of robots to cover him and push back bothersome press.
They look good on camera of course, but are about as stiff as any doll, and can’t be intimidated.
Okay, Exec has children (I’ve not fleshed them out yet, or even the number), but they are fighting over the company assets. So, the Exec gets irritated and just shoves his entire assets onto his two bodyguard robots saying “They’ve done more for me than you ever have!”
Well it was never proven exactly who make the attack but anti-tank ordance went into the Exec’s office leveling both robots and the Executive a few months later. However, the armored chassis’s of the robots protected their main systems making them still by all counts ‘alive’. Caretaker’s assigned, decisions made, children found to be assholes to the guardian overseeing the repairs to the units assessed that they would need ‘cognative upgrading’ to be sufficent in handling themselves as individuals.
The children in the mean time worked a plan turning the company public to secure their future’s; it’s all a bit technical.
I figure the two robots decided between themselves that it would be best to avoid actually ‘controlling the company’ and better off representing it, however, they also tactically assess the other organic descendants as a potential threat that needed to be neutralized without collateral damage.
The units merely linked processing power using their expanded tactical networks linked up with the company’s mainframe, and drew on its information to merely shift the company control around, and all but dump the children out trust funds and putting the company firmly in the hands of what they evaluated to be the best choice among shareholder’s board.
I kinda named him Francis Etxaterri in my head.
