Fictional biography

Kranax was a scientist from the planet Lithion. It is said that he is an immigrant from the planet Cybatron and fled during the great war with other inhabitants to find refuge on Lithion. His duties were to lead a scientific team in studies on how to terraform Lithion to be a more robot friendly environment. All that changed with Lithion was destroyed by a giant planet eating terror. After barely surviving by the paint on his resistors, he now drifts through space seeking a new planet to call home.
