ROBB7 ASPX90037

ROBB7 ASPX90037

  • Type: Neorobot. Category: The Chain

RObb7 is a robot, very different from all the others, and the reasons are so many that sometimes he even thinks he’s deprogrammed. On the one hand, he is one of the few robots that often use facial expressions as a means of communication. He also has abilities far superior to those of any robot with its level of learning, especially when it comes to technical issues, although he is forbidden to show it, like so many other secrets. But most intriguing of all is that, at night, when he is in stand-by to recharge, when his senses are supposed to be off … he dreams, and his dreams will lead him to a path of no return.

The case of RObb7 comes from parts of different robots made during the Age of Humans, and although he does not know completely the usefulness of their pieces, the truth is that his face has an innumerable number of gestures. His mouth, which is drawn with liquid ink on the surface of his face, can sketch up to 50 different shapes.

RObb7 lives with his procreator, Anma, while his proxea was extinguished in the process of procreation than broght Robb7 to existence.

When The Entity changed the course of the war, Sergo had to face those who had been his comrades in arms, something that was very difficult to accept to him. But robots get orders … and they obey them.

The war against humans left him memories that he found impossible to erase, and he found moments of forgetfulness in vegetable oil, a lubricant that, unlike mineral oil, produces small shorts when consumed, thus producing lapses of consciousness, loss Short-term memory, and other similar effects. Without work, throughout the centuries Sergo has gradually been breaking away from the very powerful elements of its battle casing, selling them to get credits to consume vegetable oil. The only thing he has left is his head, stuck to small and flimsy limbs.

He is the undisputed leader in the classroom who shares with RObb7, whom he sees as a threat to society, to The Doctrine … and to himself.

They managed to save her life, but she got sequelae in the leg that produces severe pain and a permanent limp.

Dana blames her own father for the disappearance of her mother, whom she sees as a weak person for having stopped looking for her. It is also necessary to understand that Elora (her mother) was a woman with an overwhelming personality, very different from the calm character of Demetrius (her father), and she was the heroine of her daughter.

THE BOOKS OF HEARTS OF IRON

The Hearts of Iron books are divided into two groups. On one hand we have the saga of novels that tells the adventures of RObb7, a unique story that takes place in different books and that begins with Seekers of Destiny. On the other hand we have the prequels, short stories that happen centuries before the novels and place us in a scenario of war or postwar. They are short stories that help us understand the world of our heroes, and where we can even meet some characters who will have presence or influence in the main saga.

Seekers of Destiny

Hearts of Iron I

Humanity has disappeared from the face of the Earth and the world is ruled by robot cities. In Oxterion1 hundreds of thousands of robots work as a perfect machine, without suspecting that among them there is one that, without wanting to, will change the course of history. RObb7 is a young neorobot who has always felt different, but now more, since strange nocturnal visions do not stop harassing him while he is off recharging himself. It will be these visions that leads him irremediably to a path with no possibility of return.

Meanwhile, from the towers of Nucleus1, The Processor contemplates the city he handles with hand of iron, contemplating how more and more little defects arise that alter the functioning of a society that should be perfect. And he begins to come up with a plan to end all robots that do not comply with The Doctrine.
