I am Dr. Rodney Rathbone, the final member of the Monster Fighters and and leader of the quest to save the world. I am an aristocrat, an adventurer, and the great, great, great grandfig of the first minifig to ever set foot into the Monster Realm. My entire life has been dedicated to ending the terrible terrors of the Monster Realm, battle after battle. When my gun couldn't defeat them, I trained and studied swordsmanship. And when my sword couldn't win the battle either, I armed myself with a robotic leg for enhanced creature combat. Now, with heavy metal mechanical strength and a carefully selected crew of the bravest minis to ever set foot into the Monster Realm, I finally have a fighting chance.
