"Good Evening!"

The Hovering Observational Reconnaissance Assistant Squid,[1] also known as Horas, is a series of robots created by the Plumbers. He debuted in the first episode of The Ink Tank's And Beyond, a spin-off series of 5 Years Later.


Horas are robots with light blue eyes and blue, black, and silver body. They have four robotic tentacle-like arms and a built-in Multiversal Portal Projector in their chest.

Horas V04 is the first Horas to have a distinct look, with damage done to the left side of his head from his time on Methanos.


Horas is always trying to be chipper and optimistic about most situations he is in. Although he can also be scared easily by others. He likes to make jokes, and thinks of himself as very humorous.


  • Teleportation- Horas have built-in teleportation technology that works off the same technology as Null Void projectors, quickly beaming physical matter through the Null Void as a short cut which allows them to access other worlds and dimensions.
  • Flight- Horas are always hovering off the ground. They can move freely though space and the Ghost Zone.
  • Camouflage- If the situation calls for it, Horas can disguise himself by creating attributes based on the primary dominant species in his vicinity.
  • Reproduction- Horas can asexually spawn miniature drones from himself, and connect with them wirelessly to exchange visuals and information. His "offspring" are not as sentient as Horas.


  • Chronosapien Dilation Key- R-300 Orion IT Systems Model V01 was given this item so that it could record readable footage of planets in the Ages Orbit.[1]


  • Fragile Body- Horas can be easily destroyed through various means.


Created by The Plumbers after the discovery of reaching other dimensions through the Null Void, which was proven possible when Ben Tennyson was forcibly transported to the Generator Rex Universe by the entity known as Alpha. Horas were built for the purpose of cataloging planets and species as far as he can reach in order to educate for the betterment and experience of knowledge.

The only Horas that has been a reoccurring host is V04. He has collected damage each episode he has appeared in.
