"Know the conflict within before facing the conflict without."

No interest in warfare; prefers long, lone trips into deserts and along coasts...only places he feels he can escape to and relax. Cool-headed, low-key, personable--what Earthlings call "laid-back". Fights when called upon despite anti-war feelings. Range of 800 miles...can go over very rugged terrain. Sensors can determine chemical composition of land and find needed resources. Susceptible to mental stress.

A cool-looking second-year minibot who enjoyed an episode or two of the cartoon all to himself. Much more "robot"-looking than his contemporaries, to be sure. I always liked picking up the minibots off the shelfs at the local Osco, and they were cheap enough to buy with my allowance money. Too bad I didn't get this one until I was grown up and he cost twice as much.
