Fictional biography

Bumble Bug is one of the smallest and physically weakest soldiers in his group. While his stature allows him to do his job better than most could manage, he is self-conscious about his size. Maybe this is why he makes fast friends among the humans. But what he doesn't realize is that his fellow comrades look up to him. He may be small, but he's brave, and he's one of the most well-liked around.
