The H.E.L.M., The Moon's Orbit
The Guardian returns to the Exo Frame to receive an update from Rasputin.
Rasputin: With each cache of submind data, an increased percentage of my code is restored. I become... more myself. No, that is inaccurate. My subminds were left to evolve on their own trajectories. Reintegrating them has altered my own personality matrix. Through them, I see how humanity once looked to me as a savior. An entity capable of protecting them and destroying their enemies. In many ways, I am a war god of their own making. Perhaps I am not unlike Xivu Arath in that regard. The difference between us is that I do not wage war for its own sake. I safeguard those in my charge. Continue retrieving and reintegrating the submind data. I will contact you once the next phase of restoration can begin. If I am to be humanity’s war god, then I will smite those who threaten it. Xivu Arath, the Wrathborn, and all who follow.
