When you're the only child of a single father life can be hard. But when you're the only child of billionaire industrialst Matt Trakker Life is downright lonely. With his father off trying to thwart the evil doings of V.E.N.O.M. a young Scott Trakker found himself alone more often than not. He set out to resolve his desire to have a reliable friend. Enter T-Bob. Built utilizing the near endless supply of technology at his disposal Scott built his best friend. T-Bob started out life as "Thingamabob," his sole purpose to entertain the boy and be his constant companion. This role quickly evolved into not only a companion but also a "partner in crime." Scott and T-Bob would follow the elder Trakker and oftentimes find themselves in the middle of pitched battles between Matt's government sponsored black ops group M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. The duo had the uncanny ability to come out of any adventure unscathed. The same can not be said for the members of M.A.S.K..
The dedicated men and women would end up risking life, limb, and technology to protect the two troublesome meddlers. After several battles where the appearance of Scott had caused members to lose focus, father gave son an ultimatum, Scott and T-Bob were to never again follow the team and more importantly were to never again enter the battle. Scott was deeply hurt by his father's words. He had convinced himself that he was a valuable member fo the team and was part of the reason they were so successful.
Scott and T-Bob obeyed Matt's rules for a time. Then curiosity and a need for adventure got the better of the two. They arrived at an industrial area where V.E.N.O.M. was to receive a shipment of components needed to complete their greatest weapon to date. While poking around the two were spotted by Sly Raxx who followed the two alerting his team leader, Miles Mayhem to their presence. Mayhem ordered Raxx to apprehend the two. Before they knew what had happened Scott and his loyal companion were prisoners of their mortal enemies.
Also on site was M.A.S.K. agent Boris Bushkin. From his vantage point he saw the capture of the younger Trakker and T-Bob. He had little time to decide his course of action. He radioed in to Matt and appreised him of the situation. Then he acted. In the ensuing fight Boris was killed by Raxx's Stilletto Mask. With the M.A.S.K. teams' attention on trying to save Boris the members of V.E.N.O.M. were able to Slip away shipment in hand.
With the death of Boris, Trakker decied extreme measures needed to be taken and he ordered T-Bob to be dismantled. He also ordered Scott into protective custody. Before being brought to what Scott came to look at as his prison he transfered T-Bobs memory to his Speak-And-Spell. Over the following years T-Bob received upgrades to his memory and other software. He saw "life" in many forms from hand held video games to video game consoles.
His latest "body" is a design that he and Scott designed while in exile. He has been upgraded from a tin can on a wheel into a state fo the art street bike capable of full transformation. He has been armed with defensive and offensive weaponry. Combined with what he learned over time via games like Halo and Modern Warfare T-Bob is no longer a kids toy. He has become a man's weapon.
Over the years T-Bob has lost his jovial sense of humor and has become grim and determined. Determined to defned Scott at any cost. He feels he owes his "life" to Scott and nothing will stop him from doing so.
