He was never supposed to receive the Omnitrix. He was never supposed to wield its power! You knew this instinctively!

– Servantis to Kevin, seeing Ben in control of Alien X.[1]

Servantis is the leader of the Rooters and a former Proctor-ranked Plumber who was the main antagonist for the sixth story arc in Omniverse. Convinced that Ben Tennyson was too immature to wield the Omnitrix and a threat that could one day wipe away the Universe, he dedicated his efforts to devising a plan to destroy him.

Appearance[]

As a human, Servantis was a tall, exceptionally pale man with a pointed black beard and a bald head. He had black eyes with dark outlines around them.

As a Cerebrocrustacean hybrid, Servantis has light red skin, a large red head, and wears black Proto-Tech Armor. His eyebrows and beard are pointed, similar to Dr. Psychobos'. He has spikes on the sides of his head. His eyes are red and he also has a red crystal on the middle of his head. He can open his scaled head to unveil his brain, which is pink in color. He has three claws on each of his hands with the same colorization as his brain-covering scale.

Personality[]

That weapon on his wrist can turn him into a To'kustar or perhaps even a Celestialsapien. This grimy child could one day just wish everything out of existence. All of our subtle manipulations cannot be made a joke by a scuzzy little boy. So, I have assembled you - a Ben 10 hit squad. Kevin, with your one-in-a-trillion Osmosian power, you're my secret weapon - my unsung hero.

– Servantis' motivations.[2]

In his first appearance, Servantis is arrogant and cruel to his fellow Plumbers, talking down to them, and even using his mental powers to painfully take what he wants from their minds.

It is ultimately revealed that his actions are the result of him believing that Ben is a threat to the entire universe, stemming from an underlying fear that power like the Omnitrix should never have come into the hands of someone like him, due to fearing such an outcome would bring devastation to the universe (fears inadvertently proven true). In order to stop this perceived "threat", Servantis is willing to resort to any means no matter how amoral or cruel, such as using innocents as test subjects and weapons to destroy Ben, and forcefully altering the memories of others. He shows little to no remorse for these acts, and in some cases, even deep pleasure.

While cunning and taciturn, Servantis has little to no patience for ineptitude from his subordinates, showing considerable fury at the failure of his elite unit in eliminating of Ben. However, he wasn't so blinded by rage that he couldn't see opportunity in this.

In sending the Amalgam operatives back to Earth without memory of their prior lives, Servantis had created the perfect sleeper agents to get close enough to the target so as to have a serpent at the heart of the problem. He is shrewd in playing on Max Tennyson's compassion to coax his raising and nurturing the potential assassins of his grandson, indicating he has enough hindsight & foresight to think in the long term rather than rush blinding for abysmal results. He also shows a considerable amount of patience, strategic thinking and natural psychological intuition.

History[]

Background[]

Servantis once was a Plumber scientist who became the Proctor of the Plumbers' black ops wing in the Null Void, the Rooters. He took human children and aliens into the Null Void in order to conduct genetic experiments on them using his ingenious designs.

One day, upon Kevin's escape from Incarcecon after stabilizing his powers, the troubled penal dimension inmate would find himself in the Proctor's care. Servantis immediately understood the significance of Kevin's unique genetic anomaly, one which would enable the creation of numerous hybrids whom he trained through a host of gritty, under the table missions throughout the Null Void.

Servantis's agenda was all for the express purpose of readying and amassing resources in preparation to destroy Ben, who he believed to be a threat to the universe. He most likely learned of Ben's existence through Kevin's interactions. After Kevin and the Amalgam Kids failed to kill Ben, Servantis deemed the whole mission a failure, he erased the hit squad's memories and sent them loose in the Null Void, but he still hoped they could be useful in the future. To this end, Servantis gave Max Tennyson false memories of a man named Devin Levin, and led Max to believe it was Kevin's father. The memories of Kevin's fake father was used to coax Max into watching Kevin and the Amalgam Kids so they could be used if needed.

Following his initial hit squad's failures, Servantis created Aggregor as a lab experiment,[DJW 1] as a means of replicating Kevin's abilities.[DJW 2] However, once Ben took off the Omnitrix, and the threat passed,[3][2] Aggregor was similarily discarded, with fake memories aligning with Kevin's.

Five years later, Servantis was galvanized back into action after learning that Ben recreated the universe using Alien X after it was destroyed by the Annihilarrgh.

Omniverse[]

In The Rooters of All Evil, Servantis opens a portal from the Null Void to the Plumber HQ. He tells the Plumbers that he came for Kevin Levin. He sends two of his agents after Kevin but when they fail, he goes after him too. After capturing him, in the HQ, the Plumbers attack the Rooters to make sure that Kevin can flee safely. After he reads everybody's minds and discovers no one knows where Kevin is, he goes back to the Null Void. Before he leaves, he says that there is a threat to the entire universe that Ben can't possibly understand, which is eventually revealed to be Ben himself.

In Weapon XI, he brainwashed Helen, Manny and Alan into destroying Ben and apparently convinced Kevin to rejoin the Rooters, but Kevin was just pretending to be with the Rooters and destroyed the crystal on his forehead, freeing the Amalgam Kids from his control. The Magistrata has his Plumber status revoked along with the other Rooters, and with their base confiscated and teleported away, they are left stranded in the Null Void and at the mercy of the Way Bads.

Powers and Abilities[]

Before his mutation, Servantis was a genius scientist who was able to build advanced machinery to fulfill any number of black book tasks. One of which could turn humans into alien hybrids with the right conduit to channel and transfer differing energies between two hosts.

After becoming half Cerebrocrustacean, Servantis' intellect swelled to new heights. He'd also gained the ability to read minds, communicate telepathically, filter out reality and weaken people by using his newfound mental powers.

Servantis' enhanced brain enables him to feel and sense the goings on outside of his immediate surroundings, as Gwen figured he'd become aware that the universe outside of the Null Void was destroyed not too long ago.

Servantis has electrokinesis, being able to shoot electric beams and erect potent forcefields from his cranium.

Servantis can manipulate matter and other supernatural phenomena through electrical psychokinetic manipulation. He can also levitate.

Servantis possess telekinesis, being able to move objects and people with his thoughts. He can also deactivate Kevin's absorption-based transformations at a glance.

Servantis can brainwash people to do his dirty work and maintain altered psychological mindsets for years on end, having done so with Kevin Levin and his old associates long after he had released them from the Rooters' service.

Servantis can influence keen minds into carrying out specific orders through precise memory alteration and characteristic exploitation, as he had Max Tennyson looking after the Plumbers' Helpers for him.

Even without these facilities, he remains skillful in the art of manipulating others. Being very charismatic in pushing personal perception, as shown in convincing the formerly sociopathic and paranoid Kevin into doing his bidding.

Being a trained Plumber, Servantis has skill in martial arts, battling Molly Gunther in hand to hand.

Equipment[]

The Loyalty Neuro-Matrix[4][2] was the device that allowed Servantis his power over others' minds.[DJW 3] It took the form of a red gem embedded in his forehead.

Weaknesses[]

WXI2 (491)

Vulnerable Neuro-Matrix

Servantis cannot control Kevin's thoughts, therefore making him harder to manipulate than the other Amalgam Kids. He can only be used as a conduit.

Being part Cerebrocrustacean, it can be assumed that Servantis has some of the same weaknesses as any Cerebrocrustacean.

Servantis uses the Loyalty Neuro-Matrix on his forehead to use his mind control powers. However, the neuro-matrix is fragile and can break with a sharp, direct impact with a hard surface. After Kevin broke the neuro-matrix, Servantis's mind control powers were disabled.

Appearances[]

Omniverse[]

Season 6[]

Etymology[]

Servantis comes from the word servāns which means maintaining or saving.

A Proctor (his rank) is a person who monitors students during an examination or an officer (usually one of two) at certain universities, appointed annually and having mainly disciplinary functions.
