Orbot is a robot built by Dr. Eggman to wait on him hand and foot and serves as one of his assistants. Orbot's main jobs are assisting Dr. Eggman in his schemes for world domination and making sure the processes of his plans are carried out correctly along with his counterpart Cubot. While Orbot is loyal to Eggman, he does not like him very much and usually points out his mistakes, much to Eggman's frustration.
