Along with Galaxy Tyrant, Megatyrant, General Duke, Guardian protected and curated the inner sanctum. When Galaxy Tyrant and Megatyrant rebelled against the One, Guardian blamed himself. As a result he was the first to ever take on the Trasher directive and did so before he took on physical form. By taking on the Trasher directive his name was no longer Guardian. Now he was Chopper. As a first step of the Trasher code, Chopper took secret self exile on the Valiant mission into real space obtaining his physical body like all the Valiants upon the crossing.
Likewise, upon arrival on Earth, Chopper remained hidden from the Valiants and exiled himself into the wilderness. Seeking to redeem himself and fulfill the Trasher directive before returning to the One. Each new Trasher is mysteriously drawn to Chopper and the group is now many Bots strong. While each Trasher has their own wrong to set right, all have found a camaraderie through the Trasher directive download.
