Glad to finally introduce Theta to the world. He's been written into the series for a while and is one of the most referenced characters that had yet to be featured in a scene. He appeared briefly in Reconstruction and was heavily talked about in Recovery One, but it's nice to finally give him a chance to shine. No pun intended. The animation team did an excellent job bringing him to life and capturing his essence; they are really killing it this season. The testing scene in today's episode was actually the very first scene in the original draft of Season 10. I wanted to show how far the Freelancers had come in their training since the end of Season 9. Ultimately, we decided to start with a battle sequence to get the audience immediately pumped up.

The dynamic between North and Theta is an important one. It shows just how much the AI help the Freelancers use their equipment, but more importantly it clearly demonstrates the value of Counsellor's psych profiles and matching system. No one could nurture Theta's child-like persona the way that North can.

Theta is voiced by a child actor we hired. He is not voiced by any of the RT staff's kids. The (creepy) Theta voice in Season 6 was done by me.

    Theta is so precious! He is my favorite of the A.I's cause I love his shy child-like personality. He and North are just so perfect together, he's like a fatherly figure to Theta who is like in a way his child. :P At least that's how I see it!

    Theta and North's relationship is adorable. The second Theta said something in season 10 I just wanted to cuddle the crap out of him. You did a great job.

    Here's a thought that I'm curious about: Will they be mentioning the other AI's like Beta, Charlie, Zeta, Kappa, or Lambda (which are all AI names are used from the Greek Alphabet), cause I would really like to see Carolina use the 2 AI that she'll get

    The AIs are some of my favorite characters and it was really cool to see one in action. Hope we get to see more as the season progresses!
