Before joining the Warriors, Mongrol roamed the Volgan countryside looking for revenge on the hated Volgs, who killed the woman that saved and rebuilt him, his beloved Lara - Mick McMahon(a)/ Happy Shrapnel was a tough, grizzled, veteran war droid, but as the only survivor of 'H’ Day and one too many sentences of “electro-discipline” he’d been left with faulty circuits and a speech defect - Kevin O'Neill(a)
The magnificent Steelhorn, once the greatest robot ever built, became a pacifist after destroying the Volgan leader Marshal Volgod, and ending the Volgan war. His creators couldn’t allow this and tricked him into entering a fusion furnace, smelting him down to molten steel. However, Steelhorn’s desire to live was too strong, turning him into a living liquid metal, also known as ’The Mess’! - Brendan McCarthy(a).
