Takinom thinks that Chaor's "go-to" guy for Battlegear has a screw loose himself
Ulmar is an UnderWorld Conqueror and the mad scientist of his Tribe.
Ulmar resembles short, wingless, imp. He has a bony face, with a forest green skin, long pointy ears, tiny dark purple eyes in the centre of big reddish eyeballs and a big mouth with small, spaced teeth.
Some of his limbs have been replaced by metallic prosthetics: arms, hands with four thin, pointy and sharp fingers, legs and feet that look like heavy boots. But the most notable of Ulmar’s physical traits is his enormous pinkish brain popping out of his head. Other than that, he’s not much of a fashion model, wearing only a ragged white lab coat and brown trousers.
Personality & Behaviour
Ulmar is the most ingenious Battlegear inventor of the UnderWorld, but the apparently unlimited resources at his disposal ends up putting him always under great pressure, and Chaor, charming as ever, doesn’t go easy with him, always demanding increasingly powerful equipment, so his firepower is always superior over his opponents’ or, in the long-term, so that his Tribe can find and seize control of Cothica’s power before anyone else.
Because of this, Ulmar is always working tirelessly to… to save his skin, really. Sleeping becomes almost optional, loss of limbs is an occasional, yet correctable, setback and anything capable of making him stay awake longer become a constant need. All of this not only manifests physically on him but also makes him look like he’s always on edge, to the point of even little butterflies makes him have a hissy fit.
The UnderWorlders’ proud has a different meaning for Perim’s Dr. Frankenstein. Egocentric for his superior intellect, Ulmar is haughty and bossy, but only when with those he considers lesser than himself, as seen in a flashback during the events of Kickin’ Bot, but, in reality, he’s nothing more than a stammering coward.
And even though he doesn’t demonstrate, Ulmar is inherently narcissistic, as indicated by the pompous statues along the path towards his lab, as briefly seen during one of the Chaotic battles, between PeytonicMaster’s Dasalin and Noisemaker’s Skithia, during the events of Rockwave and Roll. He also indicates to have some inferiority complex, reflecting a need of being great, even secretly craving to live up to his role and conquer the UnderWorld, with the exaggerated size of his creations.
Battling is too… mundane for superior minds and that way of thinking isn’t different for Ulmar, that’s often stuck in his lab. However, he wouldn’t miss an opportunity to boast himself with a new and super awesome creation and, when and if he must fight, he always relies on his Battlegears.
His attributes are far from being impressive, still, at expense of a Mugician, he’s able to cause some havoc upon his opponent. And with the proper Battlegear, he even can act like a one-time bomb and destroy Creatures far more powerful than him.
In the Animation, during the final battle against the M’arrillians, during the events of Legions of Aa’une, right when Phelphor thought the battle was won, Ibiaan, Kelvedran, Akkrean, Screamer, Mallash and several other Creatures of the Tribal Alliance, along with their own footsoldiers, all of them led by an enraged Takinom, Shadowknight show up to even up the score.
As usual, when the M’arrillians feel overwhelmed, they brainwash their opponents and this time wasn’t different. But then, Ulmar shows up driving a chariot, undoing the brainwash effects with a colourful brainwave channelled through his new gear. Comes into play, the Wavescrambler.
The Wavescrambler finally becomes faster and more powerful at a very small cost of his Wisdom and, although not in the same spectacular fashion, reverts the brainwashing by preventing Creatures under the command of a M’arrillian Chieftain to act as their Minions and play alternate abilities. Additionally, the brainwave also protects him from being a target of Mugics, which is very handy considering M’arrillians’ Mugics are usually devastating.
To improve the Ulmanator's top speed, Ulmar removed all unnecessary components from the vehicle. Unfortunately, that included the brakes
In the Animation, right in the very first episode of the Secrets of the Lost City, Ulmar gets out of his comfort zone for a more social interaction — and to show off with his Ulmanator — as one of the competitors of the Perithon, the huge racing event across all of Perim through different territories of all Allied Tribes to celebrate the victory over the M’arrillians. Comes into play, the Perithon Racer.
At first glance, the Perithon Racer might not seem much of an improvement being mildly more power and resilient but, looking beyond the deception, Ulmar becomes a renewable and virtually limitless source of damage, just needing to rest for a bit until fire up his UnderWorldly flame. And if that’s not enough, as long as he doesn’t make them sentient (again), he can still wreck enemies with a Gigantroper.
Ulmar appears, in Perim or in Chaotic, in the following episodes:
