It couldn't get up after the last shot. I'd say Father's pretty much done. There cannot be many supplies going around. Especially as Mother keeps frying the ones that survived the crash.If Father is dead then why not Mother?
She took a hit from the axe. Is that more damage than what sixteen bullets can do?She took more damage than Father.
The Mithriac God. He's speaking to Marcus, making him to Chosen One. Is it a good thing?Why did Marcus stop and not continue, and make sure? What are the voices he heard?
It's more likely that Father received a full programming treat and Mother, just an upgrade.Would Marcus have a different view of Mother if he knew she had been reprogrammed by the "pacifist" atheist Campion Sturges? And how are the atheists pacifists when they use nuclear weapons, shoot people and reprogram Necromancers?
Well, those guns are just pistols. They are hiding inside the frames. Here's an example,It wasn't until Father was down that they demonstrated their ability to shoot fish in a barrel.
There is something more in Father than we have been told. Everyone keeps calling him as a service model, but they really made that error before hand with Mother and it turned out to be fatal to a lot of them.Father, though, was surprisingly accurate with a firearm, once he got his hands on one. I have wondered if Father might be something more than a service droid. I had hoped that he might be endowed with deeply programmed talents which would be triggered by some dire situation.
There is something more, something bigger going at the background and it's driving Marcus mad. He's hiding under a false face and he has to speak lies all the time. It's a stress, especially in harsh times, when you just want to let things out and be yourself.The voices Marcus seems to have inherited from the late Sir Buckethead are an annoying mystery. Are the Skitters collectively telepathic, or is Marcus just going insane?
