Seraph, while on the outside is a carbon-copy of any Geth consciousness, is officially deemed a unique individual for its personal experiences and knowledge. Initially Seraph acted with pure logic and considered emotions to be rudimentary. With some time interacting with organics, it has picked up on some nuances of emotional language and, more importantly, a nudging feeling of protecting them.
Geth Prime Platform Specs
Function: A refurbished model of the pinnacle of Geth technology, the Prime utilizes battlefield awareness (heat sensors, night vision, radar disruption), team coordination (near instant communication and tactics integration), and overall strength and bulk that few organic humanoid species can match. One antenna is capable of relaying most of those functions whereas the second antenna is paramount for the transfer of Geth consciousness. Rarely seen without its semi-automatic pulse cannon.
Cosmetic: The twelve foot tall platform brandishes the famous “flashlight head” from the Reaper War with minor adjustments: one large light surrounded by a ring of 20 smaller lights. Its shell is painted silver with stripes and accents of blue to denote its relation to C-Sec. Two large antennas, heavily plated, tower from its back.
Stats: 3.6m height - 0.9m wide - 907kg
Conclusion: Excellent condition. Ready for deployment.
Education & Qualifications:
Geth Unit Seraph currently contains more than 500 Geth VI to assist Captain Sosa’Numos. With the evolution of consciousness for the Geth by Commander Shepard a century ago, a small step in advancement in their decision-making processes allowed a smaller number of VI to operate an independent platform. Seraph’s critical analysis of virtual functions are set by the collective Geth.
Functionally immortal, Seraph has technically been around since its spiritual inception. Back on the Quarian homeworld of Rannoch, a cluster of Geth VI used for security programming at a museum found a temporary home in an animatronic Quarian dummy. While its functions were severely limited, it was connected to the ExtraNet and allowed the Geth to keep tabs on the world beyond the museum with moderate undercover protection. First it witnessed many Geth worker platforms being systematically “recalled” and destroyed. Next, some Geth began to resist on grounds of being alive and forced the Quarians to take more drastic measures and took up arms against the synthetic life, escalating the events from cautious unease into total conflict.
For a time, museum staff did their best to keep the annals of history and culture intact. One Quarian in particular, Welo’Sora, spent the first few weeks caretaking for the robotic segments and ensuring their longevity. Welo’Sora noticed the oddity in one animatronic and discerned the Geth hiding amongst them. Instead of calling attention to the piece, he spent much of his time caring for the robotic platform and diverting curious eyes.
With nothing to do but spectate during the early events, the cluster worked to connect with the growing Geth infrastructure. In time, the museum closed and the threat of permanent disconnection from the universe so early on loomed over the cluster, just aware enough of being able to exist and soon no longer. Using every last iota of power as efficiently as it could, it siphoned emergency generators and kept only high priority virtual tasks powered on as the animatronic itself was dormant. The next few months are drawn out until the precision orbital bombardments.
Next comes the near genocide of the Quarians. Millions are easily wiped out, forcing the survivors onto their migratory fleets. With the bombing of all the civilian buildings came the destruction of the museum. If a machine could ponder its own existence in the universe, it had the capacity to lose hope. Amidst the debris of the structure was the shattered animatronic, staring blankly to the heavens above.
Geth freighters dotted the skies as teams were dropped down and began their service of cleaning and rebuilding. On the brink of total shutdown, a nearby drone platform wirelessly connected to the animatronic and discovered the cluster of Geth VIs. With no loss in haste, the drone salvaged what parts it could and introduced them to the collective.
While like an ocean of fish, the Geth could harmoniously and instantaneously communicate, the cluster of VI with their unique experience would chime in with their experiences for every discussion. Like most Geth, they did not join the heretics as they sought out the help of the Reapers and remained with the collective Geth. Their directives were few but with the whole synthetic life society, they pushed for agreeable relations with the Quarians. Eventually, with the massive aid by Commander Shepard, they evolved not only their self of being but also their relationship with the Quarians and were among the first to be transferred into the environmental suits for immune system boosting.
Back on Rannoch for the first time since the dawn of the Morning War, the cluster came to be known as an individual designation: Seraph, in the English tongue. Nearly a century later, it briefly yet significantly meets Sosa’Numo, future Spectre and Captain of the W-178. With her “profession” in virtual space and free-spirited activities, she wins a respectable affection from the Geth and opts to stick with her until she leaves Rannoch.
Due to its (slightly more) benevolent nature towards organics, Seraph is eventually assigned to one of few independent platforms ever created. Meant to be more of a protector rather than an attacker, the Geth manufactured a Geth Prime platform and soon received approval from Union 2201 to send a platform to the Citadel. A quick sequence of events unfold, leading to the Geth Prime being nominated to pilot and assist a known acquaintance: Sosa’Numo.
On-Board: Pilot for the W-178. Virtual logistics and diagnostics.
Off-Board: Geth Prime Platform for field tasks.
Inventory & Logistics:
Geth Prime Platform.
Semi-Automatic Pulse Cannon (shield buster/stunner).
Deployable Combat Drone (close range shock).
Save for a dozen Quarians that Seraph assisted for a few decades, this Geth is particularly unknown. Its arrival as a Geth Prime on the Citadel is a very recent development.
