Dr. Robert Nicholas will be dressed as a XERRD scientist, which would include a lab coat with the XERRD logo and black trousers. His facial features include a large brown mustache and thick eyeglasses.
Robert Nicholas was initially malicious and power-hungry when working with the mutant dinos from the Dino Attack RPG. However, he grew a soft spot for the environment after seeing the destruction that he helped cause and Dr. Rex's loss of control of the Maelstrom. This is partially why he conceived the idea for the Hall of Extinction.
Before Mustache Maniacs Film Co.Edit
Robert Nicholas started out as a background character working for XERRD in the Dino Attack RPG. There, he worked primarily with mechanics and robotics and saw Dr. Rex lose control of the Maelstrom. Sometime during the RPG's final battle, he was captured by the Dino Attack Team, but lived through the end.
- This character has occasionally been referred to as "Robertnick" because he is loosely modeled after Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik, the main villain from the Sonic the Hedgehog video games.
- This character was added to A Future in the Past in order to tie the comics DINO ATTACK: Saga of a Conflict into the rest of Project U.
- He has an ostensibly high IQ of 300.
