The Lure of the Koronus Expanse
Magos "Big" Bertha
An Explorator of the Adeptus Mechanicus, Bertha replaced the ship's Enginseer Prime at one of the stops between Malfi and Port Wander. She has quickly placed her trusted retainers in key positions.
At dinner, while travelling to Footfall for the first time, Bertha recounted her first attempt at creating a servitor. He was meant only to be a drone and his human form, such as it was, came from one of the vast army of sub-human clones on her forge world. However, her skills were not yet that advanced and instead of creating a drone who would help clean her workspace, she created one that would focus on one corner of the room with single-minded determination.
It scrubbed the corner with such focus that eventually it destroyed its neural connections and hands and had to be taken apart. Bertha was cautioned (and indeed, it was several years before she attempted to create another servitor), but the way she told the story during the Lady-Captain’s dinner did not show much remorse and, if anything, had a definite twinge of comedy, as if she saw the whole thing as having been quite the laugh..
