Awakening as a Machinist
During the days when Bakal ruled Empyrean, a group of Mechanics formed a secret squad dedicated to the downfall of the evil apostle. They were known collectively as the Seven Great Machinists of Empyrean, and collaborated on the creation of a machine capable of defeating Bakal. This secret project was code-named Gaebolg.
Just as Gaebolg was to be activated, the Machinist Teneve betrayed his fellow Mechanics by sabotaging the project and allowing Bakal’s army to strike. Those who weren’t massacred took flight, most never to be seen again. Curio, a genius technician who survived the initial attack, used a dimensional shifting device to send the Gaebolg machine to another dimension, hoping to keep it away from Bakal and other ill-intentioned beings. Bakal eventually hunted down and killed Curio, but not before the wily machinist was able to stash the blueprints for the dimensional shifter in a hiding place.
“These blueprints means the salvation of Empyrean. He who is able to re-create this device will be able to fulfill that for which the Seven Great Machinists sacrificed their lives. One day, these plans will come into the hands of one who is ready. It is then that a new Machinist will be born.” – Curio

Awakening as a Prime
He was always focused on something.
No matter how large the achievement, he would soon head back to the research room.
No one but himself knew about what he was researching,
The only thing people knew, was that a man with great knowledge and skills was
researching in a hurry, as if he was being chased by something.
No one was concerned about his health, as they all knew there was no point in
getting concerned and warning him about it.
But they only hoped, that one day, the prodigy’s achievement
would be completed, that they could live to see the miracle made by that man,
the most righteous successor among the successors of the 7 Machinists.
However, that miracle was never revealed in front of the people, as he suddenly went missing.
They could only find out that he completed his achievement, from what was witnessed
by a boy who respected the man so greatly
The people were disappointed. They insulted that man, saying ‘achievements that
cannot be shown are almost as bad as achieving nothing at all.’
The people advised the boy to look for another master. The boy simply nodded, without saying a thing.
After a while, the boy had grown into an adult.
In the hands of that young man, who visited the dusty research room, there were some old papers.
They were the research notes he had received on the last day he met with the man.
“The expectations of the people are terrifying. Their expectations will become
a monster that devours everything. However, there’s something even more frightening…
Their fear towards something they cannot understand.
What the young man was reading was something that man who used to live here [in the research room] had written.
The man saw through everything. He foresaw what would happen if he unleashed technology
beyond that of the 7 Machinists, in front of people who couldn't even properly understand
the legacy of the 7 Machinists.
So he left. Waiting for people to adapt to new technologies,
he left all his knowledge and skill to the boy.
After a long slumber, Robots started operating. The young man started to cry.
What his master had achieved, at long last, shall be the light that will chase the darkness of Empyrean away.
“Master… You are the one who surpassed the 7 Machinists…
Your name shall be praised as the one who stands atop all Machinists, the Prime…”
The Machinist must first reach level 75.

Awakening as a Neo: Mechanic
A dark, mushy and dusty place with a small light seeping out of it.
As if diverting electricity anywhere else was a waste, under the single source of light was the shadow of a man.
Relying on the singular light as he tinkered with something, his lips turned into a smile.
The spherical robot providing the light also shook, as if it agreed with him.
Or rather, since the robot was also conscious it was probably a shake of joy.
The robot’s name was HS-1.
One of the two robots that followed the man like his limbs.
The other one… was lying like scrap metal under the faint light, as if it was sleeping.
While the robot was floating nervously and could not remain still, the man’s expression showed not an ounce of doubt or worry.
The science of Empyrean, the knowledge of the Meisters, and the experience he’d gathered from different worlds.
A clue found in repeated attempt and failure!
This was the culmination of everything he had, so there was no room for doubt.
Then with a light sound of plucking a string light began to return to the motionless robot.
And all, rather just the man and the other robot, watched in silence.
As the robot was turned on its black led screen showed the upgraded program.
‘System Of Progressive High-tech Interactive AI… Upgrade complete.’
It was the moment when his S.O.P.H.I.A was successfully installed on HS-1.
Blinking as though it had just woken from sleep, the HS-1 slowly rose up.
It was not yet the time to enjoy the overflowing joy of success.
The real reason for S.O.P.H.I.A's creation was still waiting for him.
With the ‘friends’ he headed deeper into the darkness and when he nodded the ‘friends’ recognized the order and floated high up.
Electricity erupted and with the sound of sparks a sphere of light began to emerge in darkness.
The lights coming on from the bottom slowly revealed an enormous object.
Something the size of a house, no, a mansion.
It had arms and legs, covered with heavy plating.
A massive being like something from legends.
The key to awaken this giant was in his hands right now.
That was 3 days before the first activation of ‘GW-16 Waldstein’.
The Prime must first reach level 100.
