Introduction

Giga Volt was the first robot student to join the Academy. Formerly a rogue military droid, he gained a large reputation as a murderous villain before finally being detained, memory-wiped, and reformatted. He was sent to the Academy's Dr. Nakagawa for further repairs, later to be initiated into the school to gain "social training". Basically it was extra assurance that he wouldn't go AWOL again. He now lives and attends classes with the other students, and has a habit of displaying antisocial behavior towards other students and faculty. In time he's become known by many as "a big jerk".

Personality

Giga's original personality was that of a stereotypical robot; Calculating, emotionless, and uncaring. The students only knew him like this for a brief period, however. When he was first activated by the students, Giga attempted to hack into the surveillance system of the airplane hangar in the Viper-controlled Academy. The viruses in the system attacked him, causing him to involuntarily shut down. He was able to be salvaged by Dr. L33t, an AI created by Dr. Nakagawa, but his personality was changed when he was reactivated. Due to some combination of Dr. L33t and the viruses going around in his brain, Giga developed an almost human personality, though still containing a few traces of his formerly robotic way of thinking.
Since then, Giga has gained a bit of a reputation as a cruel person and a jerk to mostly everyone. He's taken to calling most humans "meatbags", and has an inflated sense of self-worth when comparing himself to them. He will occasionally pull pranks and delinquent acts on those around him, and his behavior will usually get him into trouble with his teammates and the Academy faculty. This behavior has diminished somewhat as he gravitated towards isolation, but continues to hold a low opinion, and a lower tolerance, of those around him. Nevertheless, he is more than dependable in any serious situation, and can be counted on to put bygones aside in light of a mission.
