MATRIARCH is one of many of her kind working in the depths of the Kathaman asteroid, mining iron and other metals from the honeycombed warren of tunnels within. Equipped with heavy claws, blades and a powerful mining laser, MATRIARCH is one of the mine's most industrious workers. She also manufactures new workers for the company.
MATRIARCH is secretly a member of the Order of the Vibrant Sphere, and has several hidden weapons within her mechanical rig in case her bid for freedom from her Akonian captors goes sour.
MATRIARCH was built last September for Round Four of the 2012 Bio-Cup on MOCpages. The theme was "Hidden Weapons Titan", and my opponent was ~Banjax2077
