Author Notes: Roteus was introduced as Panzer's partner. For a while I used him to show the darker side of Panzer's personality. He was also a good plot device for when Panzer had bitten off more then he could chew.
Artist Notes: Roteus` physical appearance was inspired from Bateau from Ghost in the Shell. We had a fair amount of other designs for him, but we could not find one that suited this character. Then I did a quick sketch from some old anime stuff and we seemed to think that design was the one that fit him the best. Roteus is more of the brains behind this 2-man team, the other being Coma.
