Cop-Tur

From GoBots Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Cop-Tur is Cy-Kill's favorite blunt instrument. A consummate thug, Cop-Tur has been dedicated to the Renegade cause for centuries, even longer than their current overlord. Cy-Kill won Cop-Tur's loyalty early on, however, and so the malicious helicopter has been his devoted servant ever since. Cop-Tur loves to chop things up with his rotor blades, living or otherwise, and his dutiful love of mayhem has helped form a tight bond between him and his long-time ally, Crasher. In many ways, he's the perfect Renegade: vicious on his own, devoted to the cause, and just bright enough to follow orders correctly without questioning them. His eagerness to please always brings a smile to Cy-Kill's face. This is fortunate for Cop-Tur, since he's also a bit of a klutz and his bumbling can exasperate Cy-Kill just as easily.
