DEFENDER

After the fall of the old Warbot leadership at the hands of Skycrow there were no nominations, no arguments, not even a debate as to who would provide the temporary security detail for the Warbot legions. There was only one choice... Defender.
 
Outwardly, there is nothing “special” about Defender. His crystal output is average, his strength is within the normal range, and none of his forms are anything exceptional amongst the legion. However, his ability to outsmart and outmaneuver his opponents is second to none. Defender rose through the ranks quickly by volunteering for “A” ranked assignments, accumulating more than double that of any other Warbot.  Recognized for his repeated success, he was offered a full frame conversion by the Special Projects Division. Under the watchful eye of City Commander and his fellow officer Protector, Defender was successfully given a third, fully functional, flight based shift mode (See: Project Triplex). 
 
The counsel would hold Defender up as a beacon of all the things an alpha is meant to be: honest, loyal, selfless, courageous, and humble. While he may indeed be all of those things, perhaps his greatest asset that has had such a dramatic effect on the conflict and the reason for his promotion within the Warbot ranks is simply his practicality. Defender, seeing the advantages his upgrade had given him, and taking a queue from the original Soleron Alpha Project, began the “uplift initiative”, the mandate for this project was very simple, essentially “make them better”. Being a true alpha, Defender was extremely selective about who was chosen for the projects and insisted that all safety precautions be taken. Eventually a great number of successes were recorded, such as Project Red Shift and Project Corer. 
 
For a short time it was whispered that Defender had lost his mind and was murdering alphas on the fringe outposts. For anyone with classified level access, it was simple enough to compare the attacks against his whereabouts, and determine that it could not have been him. But for the general populace, the rumors were only truly debunked when the Warbots brought back proof of his “Doppelgangers” existence. Given the code name Nega-Defender this double has become a dark shadow in Defenders life, one of which he is determined to discover the origins of and wipe from the universe.
