Do not fill this in!===Obsession with Humans=== As a self-proclaimed scientist and philosopher, Erasmus continued to contemplate a variety of concepts. However, his overriding passion became the study of [[human]]s - or ''[[hrethgir]]'' as they were known to the [[Titans]] and [[Omnius]]. He felt compelled to find logical patterns in their seemingly irrational and random reactions. His attempts to understand humanity typically came through experiments on enslaved humans of the [[Synchronized Worlds]], which normally resulted in suffering, misery and death for the subjects. His other attempts to rationalize human behavior involved surrounding himself with luxurious human trappings, such as materials, art, and decor. Most of Erasmus' attempts however yielded no tangible gains. However, the arrival of the captured [[Serena Butler]] brought a new dynamic to the Erasmus' efforts. The strong-willed prisoner not only presented the robot with defiance and intrigue, but also his first meaningful encounter with human birth. However, the ultimate consequence of his time with Serena came after he had grown annoyed by her young son [[Manion Butler the Innocent|Manion]], and murdered him. That event, in tandem with an experiment on the slave supervisor [[Iblis Ginjo]], triggered an uprising among the simmering masses of human slaves on [[Earth/XD|Earth]]. Erasmus escaped to Corrin shortly before the planet was decimated by [[atomics]] carried by a war fleet from the [[League of Nobles]].
