Chrono Monarch is a British Jaeger, one of the last, largest and strongest Mark-5s to be constructed. Based at the Kelso Shatterdome in southern Scotland, it defends Britain against kaiju incursions from the North Sea Breach.
[due for a major rewrite]
Chrono Monarch is one of the most powerful single pieces of hardware in the Arctic Defence Corps' arsenal, and the first Jaeger built for the Monarch Project. It was one of the last Jaegers to make no use of either synthetic muscles or electrodynamic joints in its limbs, with its motive and manipulative systems bearing more resemblance to the mechanical joints of previous generations of Jaegers.
1st solo confrontation: Brutalisk IIEdit
No immediate resistance was made to Brutalisk II's landfall in Scotland, as all the Jaegers of the Kelso Shatterdome were deployed in Sweden launching a counterattack against the sudden appearance of what would later become known as the Kristinehamn Incursion. With a Kaiju bearing down on the Monarch Project laboratories and the Kelso Shatterdome, and Chrono Monarch the only operational Jaeger in the area not disabled in the previous battle, the weary crew were forced to defend their home against the marauding abomination. Employing similar tactics to those used by Strike Group Monarch against the first Brutalisk, Chrono Monarch attempted to keep the kaiju's tusks at bay and maintain ranged combat through its Antimatter Pulse Cannon and continous psychic attack augmented by the anger of the crew. However the Precursors had adapted the Brutalisk body template from the original's defeat, improving the second creature with a stronger armoured hide and insulating brain tissue that prevented psionic attack. Monarch was beaten down and remained on the defensive for most of the engagement, only gaining the upper hand when its foe's skull was was finally perforated; even the smallest hole in the specialised tissue proved to be enough, allowing the enraged crew to launch a brutal mental attack, causing massive cranial haemorrhage and erratic brain activity akin to a simultaneous stroke and seizure on a grand scale. Its damaged skull was added to the ever-growing collection of gruesome trophies displayed outside the Shatterdome.
