The second of King Gills “creations” using technology gained from studying Omen’s fallen body.
Hydro is a proud warrior and trains ceaselessly when not in battle. He favours close combat and wields he dual electro sai with lightning speed.
Brother to Stingray, Moray and Nekton, Hydro is perhaps the most honourable of the four because of his adherence to a martial code.
However make no mistake, Hydro is an Atlantican to the very core and totally loyal to King Gills.
Octo is the first of the new wave of Atlantican Bots created by King Gills. After the discovery of Omen, King Gills’ knowledge of Bot technology has increased at an alarmingly exponential rate. While Omen still remains the most powerful single Atlantican Bot, King Gills second wave of “mud warriors” are more than just powerful individual Bots.
King Gills extensive studies of destroyer Deceiver carcasses have revealed a new form which allows his forces to meet any threat no matter how large and powerful.
Octo is the key for this new form as he forms the centrepiece of an absolutely massive new entity called Leviathan.
When the Atlantican forces need to inspire fear and dread, particularly when fighting other Bot factions they can combine together into the massive Leviathan. A hulking brute that makes all other Bots look like toddlers.
Leviathan embodies the very image of Poseidon with the destructive capabilities of a small army. Octo commands the other mud warriors forming Leviathan and is primarily responsible for the call to combine. While Omen remains overall commander of Atlantican Bot forces and is easentially a mud warrior himself, the other mud warriors are fiercely loyal to Octo because of the bond formed in Leviathan.
Nekton, often nicknamed “the cruel” and is rightly feared by all enemies of lower stature than himself. Even Atlantican warriors themselves try to avoid Nekton if possible. Nekton is nothing short of a cruel bully who delights in crushing those smaller than himself and it is clear that King Gills failed to connect his emotion chip when assembling him.
It is perhaps for this reason that Nekton is the only Atlantican Bot to have been utterly destroyed previously. The method of his resurrection by King Gills was done in complete secrecy and seemed more akin to a ritual from a bad horror film than anything to do with science. Despite this Nekton functions as proof of the resurrection procedure although this seems to have made him even crueler and less cognitive if that was possible.
