Dagger Walrus, formerly known as Rotor Walrus, is an alternate reality version of Rotor Walrus and a member of the dwindling resistance opposing Enerjak in an alternate future zone. As his name implies, he fights using a number of blades.
The Last Resistance
Dagger had joined up with Jani-Ca's resistance movement and was one of the few left free after their attempt to defeat Enerjak was foiled. He continued to live in hiding within Nekronopolis; one day, he and the other Freedom Fighters ventured out to attack a group of Enerjak's Prelate warriors. Dagger and Cutlass made quick work of one of the Prelates, catching it in a cross of blades. It was soon discovered that the Prelates had been after Silver the Hedgehog and the group returned to their hidden base with the hedgehog. Unfortunately, they were soon discovered by Enerjak, who set his reformed Prelates against the group; using both his blades and his fists, Dagger struggled to fight them off. (SU: #26)
However, the tide of the battle soon turned in favor of the Freedom Fighters. Dagger attempted to ambush Prelate-R from above while it fought Cutlass, only to fall into the pavement as the Prelate was destroyed, causing Cutlass to laugh at him. The team eventually managed to defeat all the Prelates and acquire their Cores. When Silver and Jani-Ca spoke of returning the Cores to the Mobians from whom they'd been stolen, Dagger wondered aloud if they should even do so in the first place: what was the point of restoring people into a ruined world? This resulted in an angry retort from Silver, who insisted that they couldn't waste any chance to help people or the world, and that they had to keep trying no matter how bad the situation. Dagger backed down, telling the angry hedgehog he'd made his point. Not long after, Enerjak retaliated, scattering the group; when Scarlette Rabbot was taken hostage, Dagger saw that Demo Duck had lost himself in rage and attempted to attack Enerjak despite the protests from his teammates. With Scarlette and Demo reduced to Cores and Silver incapacitated, the remaining Freedom Fighters, Dagger included, mounted inefficient attacks and were quickly reduced to Cores as well. (SU: #27)
Dagger is rather gruff and rough around the edges, though he seems to be on good terms with his teammates; he jokingly teases that Cutlass' French words aren't "real" and seems confident that Jani-Ca will lead them to victory. However, he does seem somewhat pessimistic about the state of the world itself.
Dagger is a large, gray-blue walrus with amber/brown eyes. As an alternate counterpart to Rotor Walrus, he's similar in appearance, though there are some notable differences. Dagger, being older, is much more scruffy and worn; he bears some lines around his eyes his right tusk is broken. He wears a yellow bandanna tied around his head and a red bandolier that holds several knives. His general color scheme seems to be taken from SatAM (Rotor's standard color scheme was used only in the show's pilot episode).
