Rollout Drone is a six wheeled scout and often call by different names by his bigger comrades, such as "Rollie". Sharing a direct link to the spark of his Leader, Rollie is sometimes more courageous than his fellow soldiers, often venturing deep into enemy territory to get vital information. Rollie has pulled out of many tough spots, considering his size, and often taking direct ion shots at enemies ten times his size. No matter the danger, he will always roll out for the great good.
