Their operations are limited by their comparably lackluster time manipulator powers, they generally operated only once every twenty days or so, and the batteries on their technology would run out during long engagements.
They act as mercenaries. Depraved enough to disgust Ingenue, but mostly pragmatic.
As Fallen they changed their color-sheme to black with red elements.
Speedrunners defended Teacher's base during The Wardens' assault. They were able to recover and restore two out of three of Saint's mechas after their destruction, and successfully ambush Capricorn and Antares.
They were able to seriously incapacitate a member of Breakthrough.

“Because the tinker stuff is limited. The batteries take time to charge,” I said. “When they were active in Seattle, they had something like twenty days between the jobs they pulled, and they had weaknesses.

↑March reaches into a pocket. The second of her devices. Courtesy of Cradle and Cradle’s back and forth with the Khonsu Fallen, who are led by time manipulators. [...]The device makes the bubble fragile, and March’s blade cuts into the skin of it. It distorts, and it breaks. - Excerpt from Heavens 12.all
