DaLu 大绿 was very lonesome on the planet R’Z4lx where he stranded 451 Snake lightyears ago. He was one of the last kinds of his generation, most of his companeros bleached out during the great gooseflesh attack. Now he was one of the last CAI-774, prototypes meant to represent the future of the planet: flipper robots. They were programmed to survive by natural sources only and remove plastic trash from the ocean bed. His best friend was YU-99 with whom he was spending days after days under the sea and searching for legumin remains in order to ensure consistency of its kind. It was a tough job as the highly-developed ROU-Army were consistently pursuing them, trying to make an end to his mission. But Da Lu was a strong fella with a green thumb, repeatingly telling his fishy friend: „Only when we clean that mess up, will the Earth will be free again!“ [Melani Murkovic]
