Background of Proto

The Hyperion Proto Robot was one of the Original Beta Robots that Hyperion had made, Hyperion used these Robots to Make other robots and special Tech (including the Shape Shifter Tech - Which allows the user to desguise themself as any of the nearest enemy e.g. Bandits or Loaders , even Skags ) The Proto Robot was Scrapped and Hyperion used Humans to make the Loaders, the Proto Robot was put in Fyrestone Junkyard to rot, until Claptrap (that you first met at the start of Borderlands and Borderlands 2 ) helped him. The Proto Robot is 7ft Tall and had made the Shape Shifter Tech for himself to use, he has a very Human-like Structure and can take down a Loader with his bare hands.

Proto also made the Firework Grenade Mod which Explodes like a MIRV Grenade but with the Fire Element which burns enemies and also Explodes with alot of colour and a very loud bang.

Proto hasn't actually got a name but Dr Zed refered to him as Destructo, where as Marcus refered to him as Rager, but Proto thought Destructo-Rage sounded good so he took that as his code name although his model name is Proto#0401 he is thinking about becoming DRP#0401.

History in Hyperion

Proto had a very big history in Hyperion and was on of the first Robots of his kind to be built, he used to help build Loaders which soon overtook his model but his model was outdated but not under-powered, the Loaders may be strong but Proto built some of them so he knows alot of their weaknesses, he started off building the Loaders but then Hyperion wanted him to start building Weapons and Equipment, his first design was the Hyperion Shape Shifter Equipment, he then started off building Weapons and thought the Lady Finger from Borderlands was a good place to start.

Action Skill

Proto's Action skill was Shape Shifting that he designed himself, it allows him to desguise himself as any enemy around him, which is very affective as if you were crowded by Loaders you could Activate your Shape Shifter ability (to desguise as a Loader) and sneak away or use it a Tacticle way to get behind enemy lines.

  • His D-Fualt skin is a slight reference to the word Default and has nothing to do with D-Fault from Borderlands: Claptrap's New Robot Revolution
  • The Pandora Legend Skin is based on how the other characters have Pandora Legend Skins
  • The Hyperion Legion Skin was based on the simple colour design of the GUN Loaders
