Rom Stol is a heroic member of the Cronos Clan, but he was not born on the planet Cronos. He came to the planet as a child with his family in a ship piloted by his father. He is the middle child in his family, with his older brother Gardi and younger sister Reina Stol. He was trained by his father Master Kirai Stol in Tenku Chushin Ken martial arts along side his friends and constant companions Blue Jet and Rod Drill. He stands 6 feet 1 inches tall and weighs 1940 pounds. He has telescopic vision. Due to intense physical training Rom has very powerful legs, and is capable of impressive kicks and leaps. He can focus his attention and speed so precisely as to be able to catch a single drop of water in a waterfall. Because of his mechanoid nature Rom Stol does not need to breath oxygen and is resistant to cold, but is vulnerable to intense magnetic fields.
Rom Stol's a main weapon is the Wolf Sword, given to him by his father, which can summon the Blade Dragon (Kenryu in Japan) and Vikung-Fu (Baikanfu in Japan) armors. The Blade Dragon armor can fly, while the Vikung-Fu armor has nearly limitless strength. He also uses a Blazer Cannon and a Power Riser suit. Rom frequently drives a sentient, but non-transforming car, named Battleflex.
