Tank Jr. - bio
NAME:
Tank Jr.

Cybronic Human/Strogg Crossbreed
GENDER:
Neuter

The spawn of a human Tank Commander and an Iron Maiden of Stroggos, Tankjr is a sadistic bio-tech nightmare.

Like Alexander, son of Phillip of Macedonia, Tank Jr. is the rightful heir to a kingdom carved out be conquerors like its sire, the Tank Commander from Stroggos. Descended from that dreaded and feared military leader fought and defeated during the Stroggos Wars, this machine of war possesses an innate desire to crush all foes beneath its metal-shod heel.
