Briefing EditPrivate Heard:
- If you're heading to Tantalus, can you take Robo with you? He's been malfunctioning for a few days now.
- Robo is our nickname for a Thraxus Machina stationed here at Icarus. The Thraxus Machina were made by the black-ops boys at Penumbra. They managed to reverse-engineer the Bane technology they used to make Machina back on Foreas and figured out how to make our own cyber-zombies out of dead Thrax. They're kind of creepy, but they come in handy, especially for espionage and such.
- Anyway, something's wrong with Robo. He's getting all twitchy and his voice synthesizer's on the fritz. Take him back to Penumbra HQ for a checkup, will ya? When you get there, look for a serious looking dude called "The Director." He's chief spook these days.
- Talk to me again when you're done with your business here at Icarus, and I'll send Robo with you.
Talk to Private Heard again when you are ready to go Edit
- Ready to go? Hey Robo, this soldier's gonna take you back to Penumbra to get patched up. Follow him, will you?
Escort Robo to Penumbra Edit
- This unit is malfunctioning? How unfortunate.
- If we can't fix it, we'll certainly replace it. We've no shortage of dead Thrax.
- Remarkable piece of work, the Thrax. A miracle of evolution, actually. Sleek, dark and deadly. A natural born predator. My agents can learn a lot from them.
Robo is a lot more delicate than he looks - even beam mantas will quickly start eating into his health. He will not fight unless he himself is hit, and he only uses the weapon on his left arm which looks like electric but is probably laser (since it damages beam mantas) - it fires in bursts of 3 with about a second delay after the bursts.
