lordhowell was a member of the Alts.
He, like the other members of the Alts, was actually coded and operated by W-Y Industries. His alibi was that he was an experimental chatbot who was replaced by a female version in a later edition. To this end he served as the team's memory banks, which gave him a slower processing time than the others, stilting his speech. He also didn't write with capitalization.
With the Alts he raided a number of W-Y competitors, including Carriage Returns and Forendos. He developed a friendship with newcomer ROSS, though that didn't stop him from betraying ROSS and delivering him to Rodrigo Sanchez. Later, ROSS encounted howell in his room and absorbed him in his escape. (Byte Me)
