The destruction of the initiative facility and staff had activated Rook form his stasis, a emergency back up protocol with the objective to save as much of the initiative staff as possible. Due to unknown reasons the protocol had not activated until all members of the staff had been terminated already indicating that some one had tampered with the facility before hand. Still one of the remaining staff must have manually activated him before their death, action that would explain his late awakening but still did not explain who had sabotaged the Initiative. Still with no staff to protect and no facility left to work with Rooks priority's switched to his final objective of protecting human life. Earth civilization was a optional objective but the main objective of his programming was to preserve human life and to further their sovereignty over their all fate. A objective he clearly could not complete in his incomplete state as he was missing his corresponding units Bishop,Knight and Pawn, not to mention his own state of disrepair.
First thing first he would need to create the units to accompany him into battle, a task that was not to difficult due to him already having the schematics for them in the data base. Using his nano machines he could fabricate the parts necessary for his repair and the construction of his fellow units. He would have to settle on collecting the resources himself for their power core,the chassis, cpu data core and finally internal bio circuits needed to process the large amount of data the fellow units would need to be able to fight on the level needed to protect the planet.
With his goals set he quickly took off into the air in search of mineral deposits to create the chassis for his brother units, a task that would be a time consuming effort due to the complex alloy used in their construction. The first trials for the scientists creating rook was the creation of a alloy that would be strong enough to be of use to them, a task that quickly more and more complex with each stress test. Strengthened steel and titanium alloys always proved to brittle for the stress of the predicted combat levels or at the very least too heavy for them to use when compressed to viable levels. Still they toiled on in their research until they created a metallic like alloy they called Everite, a strange material that could store energy in the form of crystal. The strange nature of this alloy allowed for increasing amount of energy to be stored inside the units armored plating via compressed weaves. This energy could thus be dispelled in a away form the units frame in the form of a crude kinetic shield that would repel physical or energy attacks that bypassed the units defenses. The only downside to this alloy was that the energy could not be stored over time and the unit would need to compress it in a short time, thus the strength of the Everite plating strength was limited to the units current power output.
Scanning it finally located a suitable location to start mining for some of the ore need to fabricate the much needed Everite, its systems scanned the depth before it aimed a powerful blast at the ground that created a massive explosion. The thick plume cloud could be seen for miles as rook quickly descended into the crater to begins its excavation, the units hands forming into suitable tools for the task at hand. Its cpu keep going over the numbers of exactly how much material was needed and how much was at its current dig site, a calculation the kept changing back and forth with each bit of impure ore it mined.
A small bit of its cpu began to calculate what what it would need for the units power source, unlike his own they would need different power source to run on as on its own specs its power core was a black box. Unable to pull its schematics form its system it slowly started processing date as it tried to design a substitute power source for its brother units. It would have time to create one as it built their frames, its internal system burning hot as it toiled in its work.
