Bolo is a minor, but important character in the 2018 adult animated series, Final Space.
He is voiced by Keith David.
Trillions of years before the events of the series, Bolo was a member of a race of primordial eldritch abominations known as the Titans. Each Titan was born with one purpose in mind: to raze chaos onto the universe. However, Bolo was different from his brothers, and rebelled against his kind, closing the portal to Final Space. As punishment for his treachery, he was sealed away within a giant cube by his brethren. Despite that, he was still able to telepathically communicate with others warning them about the horrors of Final Space if it was ever unleashed.
As for what made Bolo rebel against his nature and resealing Final Space is currently unknown.
Bolo was briefly alluded to in Chapter 7 when Nightfall reveals that there was a Titan who knew how to close the breach in space-time caused by a gravitational disturbance. After losing her Gary in her timeline, she attempts to commit suicide only to be stopped by Bolo who teaches her the ways of time travel as well as how to locate him. In this occasion, he took the form of the moon in order to speak with her.
In Chapter 8, Galaxy One travel through the center of a sun in order to get to Bolo's dimension which lies within "Inner Space." Upon arriving, Bolo selects Gary to speak with him in regards to the breach. Bolo recreates the moment that Gary's father - John Goodspeed - sacrificed himself in order to close the breach. Because of this, Gary is able to spend as much time between himself and an artificially made version of his father. With that, Gary learns of another anti-matter bomb being located back on Earth in New York City.
Bolo is a Titan of an unknown height with blue skin and blonde hair on his shoulders and the back of his head. He has six arms with what seems to be like jewelry as well as strips of cloth around his hips and some of his limbs. He has two horns that protrude from the sides of his head.
Compared to the Crimson Light's size, Bolo is able to hold it in one hand as if it was a large insect, to give a comparison to the size of the Titan.
Bolo is shown to be a titan who is kind, quiet, and soft-spoken, often wanting to help individuals in their most desperate of times. Filling in the role of a mentor and guide, Bolo assists individuals like Gary and Nightfall whenever he could in situations that they have no idea on how to solve such as how to close breaches. His kindness is shown when he helps Gary come to terms with his father’s death by sending him to the past to the moment before John was fated to sacrifice himself.
Bolo is also very stoic, shifting very little in terms of emotion while expressing the same stoic look on his face even in tense situations. Despite this, he does lose his temper when rubbed the wrong way, going as far as to call Oreskis a “frickin dickbag” and giving out a huge rant about his dislike of Oreskis when he Found out that Oreskis was telling vicious lies behind his back to Sheryl, Gary, and nightfall involving claims that Bolo was evil and manipulating the team squad . It is implied that spending 10.000 years in a cube while trapped in inner space had deeply embittered Bolo to the point where he swore revenge on Invictus and the poisoned Titans for their cruelty towards him.
Bolo has a sense of humor although a dry sense of it, occasionally making blunt jokes.
