Kristen Marx by Shimmering-Sword Kristen Marx by Shimmering-Sword
Kristen Marx, in her Elemental which I have yet to name. Her suits AI was an experimental variation, it is highly aggressive, kept in check only by it's failsafe link to Kristen who it chose as it's pilot. An original specialty in thermal control makes for a terrifying offense and efficient defense, later experimental techniques prove far more shocking.

What does the is the suits AI in charge of doing?

Is the suit AI housed in the suit or in the operator?

Housed in the suit, it aids in whatever the pilot asks of it (provided it's cooperating). Most commonly improving shield formations and aiding in precise movement (aiming and dodging).

Two followup questions.

Can an Elemental still operate the suit if the AI isn't cooperating?

Can an AI be transferred to a different suit? For example, assuming that the events in :thumb298237048: have rendered the suit unrepairable, could that suit's AI be transferred to Nayora's replacement suit?

Without the AI the suit itself works like any other power armor. Just things like predicting the path of a projectile and narrowly moving out of it's way become impossible. The shields will still operate too, just not as precisely. Luckily the main human interfaces for shields are mental visualization combined with emotion and physical movement, a basic suit computer can still interpret these to a degree, running each type of shield formation like a program.

Not practical to carry around everywhere, but for a quick opening burst of anti-armor firepower it comes in handy.

True but for someone of her size and stature i picture a smaller semi-automatic rifle with a silence and a combat knife. You know the wet-work, it seems like what shes built for. Not lugging around the weapon of mass destruction.

Her suit is powered armor, along with providing other far more powerful abilities. These suits are easily detected by their massive power output too, so they are made for escalated combat :)

In an escalated combat situation that rifles slow fire rate, would not only inhibit her suits power output but put her life at risk because of its slow kill rate. With something more along the lines of say a Mg42, or Gattling gun she would be a much more effective and destructive soldier. If i may speak freely that is.

Hi there
this is the first i've seen of your work
and I am interested in this AI that needs a human to keep itself in check
It's kind of like The (tenth) Doctor from the TV show "doctor who"
:+fav:
Has anyone put forth a name yet?
I say the AI should be named "Tenet"

Well... in the meantime you could try using these names:
>El Tormento: male variation on the feminine Spanish word for storm: "La Tormenta"
>Bolg: an Orc from lord of the rings
>Valemon: a king who was turned into a bear, from Norwegian legend.
>Cacalomente: Spanish word for Crow

Most of the AIs don't choose, they are started when the pilot takes the suit, this one is different though. And yes, the Elemental is just the armor.
