Crank by Lakword Crank by Lakword
C.R.A.N. stands for Companion Robot And Nanny. But Isabelle did rename him Crank because she wanted him to have a normaly sounding name. That and his face always was looking cranky because of the build. This robot was actually a golem model used by Guardians (Guardians are ponies from Equestria who left Equestria to find a new land where they could make very advanced stuff like steampunk and even further than be forever stuck in times in whatever Equestria seems to be in). Anyway the golems were usually way bigger and made mainly for 2 things. 1 was to help around ponies lift heavy stuff and assist them with tools like mechanical arms and flashlights and other things needed by earth ponies who were like 90% of the guardians and they could not count on magic too much. And 2 task for golems was to counter changelings like Burrowers. Even thou burrowers weren't that much of a problem until Queen Varessa took control of their hive. Guardian Golems were always either simple helpers on day to day tasks since their intelligence was... well lets say very demanding and during fights they were used as battle suits since raw strength was not useful against a burrower who actually isn't some stupid beast but a changeling who is a walking tank with quite high intelligence.

Anyway as for Crank. He was special model which never got mass produced because changelings took over continent so fast that materials for those golem robots were too hard to get. Crank is actually first and only guardian golem who is fully automated and can learn on its own and have feelings on his own. This model was made for keeping young ones safe and look at the same time friendly. Also unlike other models Crank looks quite modern and clean. And he can actually hide his mechanical arm inside his body and got place for gadgets to be added if needed. Downside is he cannot be used as a suit but who would fit in such a small robot anyway? Crank had 1 goal programmed and it was to be Isabelle friend and companion. But not do everything as she says but actually have free will to tell her what is not good idea and to make sure she wont go on some bad road. Crank and Isabelle learn a lot from each other and whenever Isabelle goes Crank follows

*Crank was made by Zeks and I wanted to keep as close to his idea as I could. Kinda reason he looks a bit like pony version of Portal 2 Turret XD*
