Glitch was a spy, and successfully completed several missions. Unfortunately his partner Rollout took credit for them. Between the two Glitch is the primary member of the team doing most of the work and even on multiple occasions keeping Rollout alive.
Glitch's alt-mode is a cannon that is capable of firing electrical bursts of static electricity that can impede a target's cerebral functions. In robot-mode he uses this in combination with his stun-laser and photon gun arms.

Before the war, Glitch attended the Jhiaxian Academy of Advanced Technology. Because he was unique in his abilities, he was experimented on and they attempted to analyze his brain-wave patterns. Orion Pax devised a plan to steal a bomb from Nominus Prime's corpse, he recruited Glitch, Windcharger and Skids. Glitch's part of the plan was to deactivate the deflector beams above the Primal Basilica. While on mission Glitch accidentally jammed Skids's grappling hook when he touched his arm.
