Saru is a friendly, outgoing monkey who seems to desire companionship above almost all else. He has a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to his powers, apparently instilled in him by his previous mentor, "Harry." He wants to be a super-hero and use his powers to help people. He is fairly naive and trusting of others, but fortunately those he has befriended seem to have his best interests at heart.
Saru is a genetically engineered primate comprised of the DNA of various monkey species, as well as that of a human psychic. He was designed to be an ideal subject for the study of psionic abilities. As is wont to occur with experimental creatures, he developed in unanticipated ways, and he escaped with the aid of one of the scientists by the name of Haru "Harry" Nakamura. Sadly, Harry and Saru were seperated. Now Saru is on the run from his creators, though he has no idea who they are. He really just wants a friend.
