Bubbles is a female robot that was involved in an underground robot-fighting ring.
After joining the military, Bubbles was given her name by members of her squadron. A horrific attack during her tour of duty led to the deaths of all other squad members. Bubbles herself was incapacitated by EMP but escaped physical damage.
Exact details of Bubbles' service record have been lost.
She suffered from PTSD after her military career; those memories were claimed to have been locked away by Corpse Witch, who held the unlock key as leverage over her, although when Spookybot intervened it was revealed that the memories were accidentally lost in the process.
Her armor was both a physical and a psychological defense. She has continued to wear it without any practical need and has been unwilling to take it off until a recent milestone in her recovery. Faye helped Bubbles take off her armor. Since removing her armor she appears to wear a maroon bodysuit with short sleeves and legs, which is removable. She has been seen wearing a hoodie and jeans. Bubble's first true piece of clothing was a cardigan sweater made by Emily Azuma; the sweater would open or collapse by squeezing a corner (a feat Bubbles noted as incredibly advanced programming). She has also borrowed neckties from Marten for celebratory occasions.
She currently works at Union Robotics, a robot repair shop she started with Faye.
It took time for her to become friends with the rest of the characters. Since then she has shown concern for Faye's well-being and was sympathetic to Claire's gender dysphoria.
She is extremely close with Faye. Eventually her feelings for her became romantic. She was initially unsure of what to do about those feelings because she didn't believe that Faye reciprocated them. However, after discovering that Faye had similar feelings for her too, they entered an intimate relationship.
Although Bubbles cannot eat, she has highly-calibrated olfactory sensors- whenever visiting Coffee of Doom she will order herbal tea because she enjoys the aroma. Hannelore takes pride in brewing tea for Bubbles; the resulting blends have allowed Bubbles to see a variety of mythical creatures.
Bubbles has an olfactory system tuned to detect chemical and biological weapons. Her muscles are triple-reinforced myomer. Her armor is a metallo-ceramic material, possibly Chobham armor, and can resist a 3 cm APFSDS round. Also, her armor can be removed. She is capable of a top running speed of 30 km/hr and a 3-meter vertical leap
