Von Joy is the very model of an absent-minded professor. Brilliant in a variety of scientific fields, he's still better known for his spectacular failures than his successes. That's because Professor Von Joy is often so eager to test out a new invention, he forgets to actually test it before bringing it into the field. Still, he's very good natured about his mishaps, and so Leader-1 and the other Guardians are typically willing to forgive and forget.

Sometimes he's a Baron.
