The Robot Elders, who rule the Robotic population of Chapek 9, are, like most governments, extremely corrupt. They are over four centuries old and were carved from meteorites by the Robot Founders. The one with yellow eyes is named Jimmy.

All five Elders are well aware that Humans are no threat to their way of life. Nonetheless, they spread anti-Human rumors and propaganda constantly as a means of distracting their people from the planet's real problems, such as its inhabitant's crippling lug nut shortage and incompetent rulers (1ACV05).
