A high-ranking Stone Warrior, easily recognized by his large nose. He is a villain character in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT) universe.
Stone Warriors, sometimes also referred to as Rock Soldiers, are a race of sentient humanoids, from Dimension X, whose bodies, as their name implies, are composed of stone. They are incredibly strong and resistant to physical injury, but not terribly bright. It is unclear if there are any females in their species, as all subjects observed to date appear to be masculine. The Stone Warriors' entire culture is geared towards war and conflict with a definite tendency towards aggression and hostility in regards to other species. Their numbers are organized into a strict hierarchy, with power/prestige directly linked to military rank. The current commander of the Stone Warrior legions is General Traag. Lieutenant Granitor is his immediate second-in-command, and his successor, should Traag fall in battle or meet with some other fatal mishap. At present, the Stone Warriors serve the exiled alien warlord, Krang. It is supposed that, at some time in the past, the Stone Warriors were defeated and subjugated by Krang.
