One of the many functions robots can serve is protection, whether for a single person or a large property.

Several robot models have been created for just this purpose. Guardian robots have become something of a status symbol among business leaders and politicians, and a whole range of defense-focused robotic bodyguards of all shapes and sizes are available.

Most guardian robots are crafted to appear as unassuming humanoids of a certain species and usually have a quiet and deferential virtual intelligence. They constantly scan for potential nearby threats and endeavor to stay close to their handlers, engaging opponents from a distance using grenades or weighted nets.

The desire to create autonomous defensive constructs can sometimes lead to unfortunate results, however, especially when time or a natural disaster alters a robot’s programming.

A collection of massive drones known as keeper robots stalk the wild and forgotten areas seeking to destroy intruders, their original directives clearly corrupted into a surprising ferocity. Usually nonhumanoid in appearance, keeper robots are dangerous and implacable opponents. Some stand about 14 feet high on eight legs and weigh several tons.
