Servant Minds are arguably the Shapers' most useful creations. They are essentially super-computers with the a varying degree of capabilities. Some are basic enough to retain simple documentation for day-to-day procedures while others are powerful enough to control other creations.
This amount of power and intelligence was seen as dangerous however and so to limit their ability to go rogue they were made physically limited and frail. They have huge brains and an atrophied body, which renders them totally dependent on serviles and humans in order to be fed as they are unable to move. They may have a short or long life depending on its purpose.
