Meditron the Repair-Bot is a Cyber Tempest He was a retired medic who inhabited Infinity, but a pack of the Darkspore mutants hunted him down when he returned from an event. Repurposing his healing system as a weapon, he soon found himself joining the Crogenitor Insurgency to fight off the Darkspore invaders.
He shares his genesis type and class with SRS-42. Despite having three pairs of legs/feet, he can only equip the standard payload of one of each weapon, hand, foot, offense, defense and utility slots.
Revelation EditHe was seen fighting alongside Arakna and Sage when Darkspore's demo at GamesCom was first displayed, but his name, abilities, and backstory were not revealed until later on.
Horrified, Meditron escaped, warning every creature he'd previously encountered of the impending Darkspore Armageddon. But while fleeing through the canyons of Iktotom, Darkspore creatures shot him down, making Meditron crash inside a crevasse called Iktotom's Skull.
And there inside the Skull lay a discovery beyond reckoning.
Iktotom's Skull was an abandoned laboratory of what had obviously been a vast alien intelligence. The lab gleamed with indecipherable technology run by almost unfathomable science. Yet there were fragments Meditron could understand, including one word: "Crogenitor."
Meditron calculated a plan. Knowing that his pursuers were closing in on him, he redesigned and repurposed the nanobots he had once used for detection, healing, and perception-amplification. Accelerating nanobot production from millions to billions per minute, he lay in wait for those who planned to destroy him.And when the Darkspore attacked, Meditron penetrated their central nervous system with nanobiotic beams that amplified their sensory perception, especially the sense of pain.
Those Darkspore experienced such agony that they ripped themselves apart.
And Meditron emerged to hunt all those who would hunt him.

Patch notes Edit
- Patch 184.108.40.206 (June 3, 2011) - Reconstruct now counts as periodic healing and therefore benefits from effects like Tork's Rampant Growth.
- Patch 220.127.116.11 (May 5, 2011) - Meditron now has better tech-themed sounds. Charged Strike now requires a target. Homing attacks no longer follow heroes who are stealthed. Reconstruct’s power cost has been increased. Reconstruct no longer gives extra health if you swap while Reinforced is active.
