Its tentacles burrowed into the earths mantle anchoring it into the ground. It takes the biology of the things it ingests and uses it to learn and create appendages in vague and twisted parodies of their original forms. These drnes are sent out and devastate the equipment and facilities on earth that might be used to harm their master.
