Dr. Sobek is a Type-VII Brute-Chassis Reploid (a "Jock Temproid") who operated as the primary muscle for Professor Fennec's archaeological team in Egypt. He was one of the crew that worked the unearthing an ancient ruined tower that was believed to have last been used at some point during the 2100s, where he did much of the heavy lifting himself. He was loud and boisterous as well as stubborn, he stuck out like a sore thumb amongst the rest of his team, who were generally more refined than he was. This "personality flaw" was a major issue with Fennec, and the two often got into heated arguments that would have come to blows each and every time had it not been for their fellow colleague Dr. Thoth's powerful mediation techniques. Even so, Fennec and Sobek quickly decayed their relationship until each hated the other.
