Only a robot can achieve perfection in motion, I WILL DEMOLISH ANY- ...Oh, what a mess!
Geary, shifting personalities
Geary's debut was in Crash Nitro Kart, as the champion of Teknee and Velo's final champion. When he is summoned into the arena, Velo introduced him as the pinnacle of robotics, claiming him to be his finest racer. Geary became aggressive claiming only a robot can achieve perfection in motion. He attempted to threaten the playable team, but gets distracted by how dirty the platform he was standing on was. He paused to clean it with the vacuum nozzle from his chest, angering Velo. After he finished cleaning, he returned his focus to the opposing team, returning to his aggressive mode.
He is raced alongside the Cleaning Bots. As weapons, Geary used cleaning-based items. His signature weapon is a rolling soap sprinkler that not only flattens opposing racers but also leaves them sparkling clean, as well.
After the race, Geary is sulking next to a pillar in the arena, complaining in a very whiny tone about his loss. He then noticed his hand is dirty, only to realized that then entire arena is "filthy". He scoffed indignantly and started vacuuming the podium, only to notice the opposing team celebrating in the middle. He turned his hand into a brush and started cleaning either Crash or Tiny depending on which team is being played as. He immediately stopped as Velo began shouting at him for failing, bottom jaw trembling in fear. Velo then ordered Geary to clean the trophy podium and then the entire coliseum as punishment for losing.
He can be unlocked in the Game Boy Advance version by beating him in a race on his home track, Android Alley.
Stats (GBA only)
Geary returned in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled as an unlockable character. He is a Balanced-class racer and was previously unlockable via purchase in the Pit Stop for 1,500 Wumpa Coins, and then unlocked immediately via the free Beenox Pack.
Driving Style: Balanced
Geary returns as a henchman in On the Run!. He must be fought along with other henchmen in a gang before the player can confront the main boss of the gang. He attacks by shooting fireballs at the player from his vacuum nozzle. There are small fireballs which take up one lane and can be jumped over, as well as large ones that take up two lanes which must be avoided. Like all henchmen, Geary is defeated by simply avoiding obstacles to reach him and using the Portal Weapons crafted beforehand to send him back to his own dimension.
Geary is the most trusted and loyal racer that Velo has. Velo even gives him the most praise and respect for his races, saying that only very few have gotten the chance to challenge Geary. It also seems that out of all the racers Velo has, Geary seems to fear him the most; such as trembling when Velo shouts at and scolds him for his failure against the opposing team.
Described as the pinnacle of robotics, Geary also seems very "high strung" about his robotic design, saying that only a robot can achieve perfection in motion. During some events, Geary constantly changes his mood, from being quite focused and determined, to being furious and destructive. This causes Geary to have his downfalls. Geary is also known to be a clean freak, as shown when he was cleaning up the arena and even went as far as scrubbing down Crash and Tiny.
During cleaning mode, he's notably nicer, polite, and a good sport. This is shown as he claps for the winner during that mode, holding that distinction aside from Megumi. He also doesn't harbor any prejudice against organic beings in that mode, as he cleans Crash and Tiny without any discrimination or irony.
Geary is a robot made out of a shiny bronze metal. He has a round dome on his chest, which contains a nozzle for his built-in vacuum. His forearms are much wider than his hands, allowing him to withdraw his hands back into his arms and come back out with a cleaning brush hidden within. He has glowing green eyes while in cleaning mode, but they turn red while in his more aggressive racing mode.
The only noticeable change made for Nitro-Fueled was the dome on his chest being turned bright red.
