Reception

Fictional biography

From a Next Generation Mirror Mirror universe, Robot Basil Z runs a hotel in the less pleasant part of the Planet Steel. He has tried his best to ignore the war effort, but is secretly ashamed at his cowardice and tried too hard with visiting dignitaries and soldiers, often mentioning the war and hoping he gets away with it. This over-compensation and many other insecurities often lead him into sticky situations, and - because he is prone to severe bouts of stress - he often looks for scape-goats and fall guys to pin the blame on. His hobbies include chasing down rare limited edition re-colours of things that were available only in Argentina thirty years ago.
