Zorbicon
The Zorbtrotter is a specialist infantry used by the Wings of Coronia. They manipulate the air around them to not only make them amphibious, but also suffocate enemy infantry by throwing orbs of vacuum at them. They can also create a much larger vacuum sphere that also makes them more resistant to enemy fire, and can move faster with the support of Spinblades.

Zorbtrotters can be transformed into Zorbfloaters through a Nanofiber Sync.

Description

Coronian Zorbtrotters have taken wind manipulation techniques to the extreme. It is widely believed that windflow manipulation technology was successfully miniaturized and are now used by Foehn soldiers, but within the ranks of the Epsilon Army, there is speculation that the power to control the winds are actually of a psionic nature and not by mechanical means. This would suggest that the Zorbtrotters may have been taught by Epsilon renegades to control the wind.

What’s clear is that Zorbtrotters can easily turn the air against their enemies. They can easily deny breathable air to enemy infantry by creating spheres from which oxygen is removed, directing them at enemy infantry that are in range. Zorbtrotters move within a wind orb that they control, allowing them to cross watery surfaces with ease, and they can even gain a brief speed boost from nearby Spinblades. This orb also grants them immunity to the effects of the Alanqa’s hurricane attacks. If need be, they can use their orb as a weapon by expanding its size to encompass nearby enemy infantry and creating a vacuum that literally leaves enemies breathless.
