The Deserter was a young and cowardly soldier who was found on Batalia trying to escape the Blarg invasion. After riding the grindrails, Ratchet and Clank found him and he told them that he joined the Army so that he could get the money to go to college, but he failed to anticipate the possibility of war. He gave the duo an Infobot for Gaspar after they paid him some bolts to get him a ride back to his home. He was later seen in Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal watching the latest Secret Agent Clank movie.
