According to Ghost Fragment: Darkness Rasputin detects an entity outside of the solar system that is obviously hostile and prepares his defenses but despite his efforts, all countermeasure fail to affect the entity. Rasputin 3 then goes on to explain that he eventually realizes that the Darkness could not be defeated by conventional means and enacts several protocols designed to formatt his programming to allow him to go dormant until a way to defeat the Darkness could be found. He goes through a monologue in Ghost Fragment: Mysteries, describing how everything has died in a metaphorical, albeit mythological manner, before subsequently shutting down. But before this point, Rasputin had previously enacted SUBTLE ASSETS IMPERATIVE as seen in Rasputin 5, 3, 6; believing the Traveler to be some sort of threat, in his paranoia and maddened state, Rasputin lashes out at the Traveler with his strongest weapons – which somehow failed to stop the Darkness – causing massive damage and forcing a burst of Light from it which pushes the Darkness back, releases the Ghosts, and ends the collapse. A part of this hypothesis include the Ghosts as being creations of Rasputin and were infused by the Traveler’s Light from the explosion.
All of this Rasputin did to protect humanity by shooting the Traveler. So why would he suddenly rise above his old self to do something to help the Traveler?
By the way, this is all a hypothesis…
