Born a Galvan, Albedo was tall for his species, with grey skin and small whiskers. After his DNA was corrupted, his eyes turned from green to red.
In Human form, Albedo is a genetic duplicate of Ben Tennyson at the age of 10, but with longer, gray hair, pale skin, and red eyes. He wears a basic Galvan Foreigner Prison Uniform with an advanced boot that would teleport him back to his cell if he tries to escape.
Albedo is unable to age, due to being genetically locked in a Human child form by Azmuth.
Albedo is a very selfish individual. His number one goal before he was arrested was to obtain the Omnitrix from Ben Tennyson. He didn't care who he needed to attack to get it, and would do anything to return to his original Galvan form. Albedo also possesses a very articulate vocabulary.
Albedo absolutely despises being stuck in a human body, and he entirely blames Azmuth and Ben Tennyson for his curse. Albedo constantly complains about how disgusting it is to be a human. Albedo believes that humans are inferior in every way to the Galvan.
Albedo usually makes decisions based on logic. He tends to question everything that happens around him. When he first teamed up with Vilgax, he was suspicious of Vilgax betraying him from the start.
- High Intelligence- Due to being born as a Galvan, Albedo has incredible intelligence beyond Earth standards.
- Human Weaknesses- Because Albedo is trapped as a human, he is susceptible to the weaknesses that most humans have.
Before 5 Years Later
Albedo made his own Omnitrix using a spare Matrix Core after he was deemed unworthy to wield it by Azmuth. However, as the Core was connected to Ben's DNA, the Omnitrix changed Albedo's DNA to match Ben's, resulting in him becoming Teenage Ben's Genetic Duplicate. After a brief meeting and a battle, Ben and Albedo's Omnitrices collided, creating genetic feedback that caused the color of Albedo's hair, eyes, and clothes to invert. After that, he was sent to an Intergalactic prison for a period of time.
After he got out of prison, Albedo managed to gain parts and steal another Matrix Core that Azmuth created from Galvan, which he used to complete the Ultimatrix, which can evolve his transformations to a more powerful state. It was taken from him by Ben after he sacrificed the Prototype Omnitrix to defeat Vilgax.
After escaping Vilgax's ship, Albedo attempted to regain his Galvan body back yet again, raising money to build a DNA Chamber by performing theater and making use of his appearance as a clone of Ben Tennyson. The DNA Chamber failed, but it gave Albedo the ability to transform his body naturally, without a Matrix Core. However, he still must always return to his Ben Tennyson Form after prolonged transformations.
A long time after gaining the ability to transform on his own, Albedo created the second Ultimatrix, which was meant to stabilize his transformations. Upon his inevitable defeat, Azmuth punished him by reverting to his teenage Ben Tennyson form from a few years back, resulting in him now looking like an inverted, ten-year-old Ben Tennyson.
Not long after, Albedo was permanently imprisoned on Galvan Mark II, with his Ultimatrix confiscated.
Galvan Mark II, kept Albedo locked inside a special containment cell for the first two years of imprisonment. Over time, his body “digested” the dormant DNA inside of him. Without an Ultimatrix or stored DNA, Albedo can no longer transform into other aliens, nor return to his original Galvan form.
Still stuck in the form of a human child, Albedo enrolled in Galvan Mark II's Prison Reform Program, where he lends his smarts to technological development in exchange for prison benefits. He cannot leave the planet, and he has a boot locked on him with a highly advanced ankle monitor that automatically transports Albedo back to his cell if he tries to leave the atmosphere.
