Captain Komulus R. Sludge is an Alternate UUniversal Morladian Robot from Planet Morlad. He is an obese yet very formidable space pirate machine who is the scourge of the isolated areas of the Gamma Core Sector of the Gamma Universe. Taking his position from his crew's original captain, Captain Strömulen Backwater, who was finding a way to pillage Xomn territory, he became the pirate lord of Morlad and began looting as much as he could in the sector and beyond. He runs on nuclear waste and has many defenses and technology stolen from the Techrids, and thus is an extremely efficient pirate, even if his image is ruined by his first mate Rust-Bucket. He is essentially the AUU version of Captain Romulus Slag.
