Pidge and Chip are twin brothers and were orphaned at a young age. When his foster parents wanted to adopt Pidge, he refused to go unless they took Chip as well.
Crash landing on Arus after their escape, they made their way to the Castle of Lions. There, they met Princess Allura and Coran, and were commissioned as the Voltron Force. Pidge would fly Green Lion.
He would develop a friendship with the Space Mice, even helping them to train to be a fighting force.
A mission would later take an emotional toll on him. Responding to a distress call from planet Balto, he and the Voltron Force arrived and found out that the planet on which he and Chip grew up would explode. Balto exploded after narrowly escaping a trap set up by Prince Lotor.
