Al was born and raised in Washington, D.C. with a wealthy family, but he was very bored with his seemingly "perfect" life. After becoming an E.V.O., he left home to seek something greater.
By some means, Al met two human E.V.O.s, Wildfire and Voodoo, who invited him to help them recruit E.V.O.s to join a gang. As a member of the Rag-tags, Al "rebels" against authority by stealing secret information and technology online and making it publicly available, and acts as a "Mission Control" during covert missions.
Al is overly analytical, a perfectionist, and doesn't believe in doing things "for the heck of it," making him the perfect contrast to his friend Wildfire. He is a computer genius, but often wants people to think he's smarter than he already is.
Al's hairless body is entirely made of metal, his eyes are glowing green, and he has no nose or ears. He has three connector cables that extend from his neck. He wears a sleeveless green shirt and ripped shorts, and wears his Rag-tag kerchief tied around his wrist.
