HiiRagi Army: Recon Unit

HiiRagi Fact: Despite their agile and nimble fingers, Recon Unit Robots are unable to touch their hands together.


Please don’t be fooled by their simple outward appearance.  For behind that sweet sweet face is a diabolical militant mind trained in all facets of espionage, communications and assassination.  All Recon Units know how to ask the ‘hard questions’ and how to get answers.


A seasoned campaigner for the HiiRagi Army, Recon Units are (generally) the first phase of infiltration in our operations.  Their missions are the stuff of legends involving action, suspense, intrigue and (sometimes) just a little bit of romance.  Acting as the eyes and ears of the HiiRagi Army, Recon Unit plays a vital role in connecting HiiRagi to the world at large and keeping the Army well informed.


Recon Units Speciality Skills include (but are definitely not limited to) Disguise, Languages and Dialect, Interrogation, Encryption, Sabotage, Demolitions and Explosives, Assassination, Spying, Logistics and Skulking.


As the first robot built by HiiRagi, there is a close relationship with the notorious Recon Unit Robot, RU1014 (known as “14″), who acts as HiiRagi’s right hand.  This soft spot extends to all Recon Unit Robots who work hard at making the HiiRagi dream a reality.


Recon Units have a number of interests due to their close connection to the world at large.  Some of their favourite things include:
