To his left, Ribateau who is in charge of selling wall dressings.

From Ribateau's dialogue, some robots in Gaia were used as war machines; it became illegal to use them in such a manner or own them but the bots are allowed to work in various parts of Gaia due to Government permission.

It is Bludeau who has been the most active bot in Gaia, he has been assigned to Aekea Housing Commissions after the previous store owner left to create her own shop, he introduced Gaians to the game "Electric Love Faktori", and was used as the Lovetron 9000 during a prom.

2007: Summer FestivalEdit

When the Summer 2k7: Summer Festival was announced, Gaians looked over the participating teams, each having their own special water weapon. When it came to Aekea it was Liam who introduced Gaians to his Mecha, Delugeau, a yellow painted robot in the shape of a submarine that towered over the buildings of Aekea. It was capable of lobbing giant water balloons at opposing towns.

In setting up for the Gaia Olympics 2008 Liam attempted to build a team leader he would call Delugeau 8000 V.52, which would have been a completely remodeled version of Delugeau. However the construction of the bot was halted when Josie told him about the rules of the event; that large robots were restricted after the damage that was done during the summer of 2007. The committee made a rule that robots larger than 20 feet were not allowed to participate in the games.

Currently Delugeau is in storage.
