General Alister Azimuth was a revered, yet rebellious leader of the Lombaxes. The Court of Azimuth was designed by him, and he was a childhood friend of Kaden.[1] He was a Four-Bolt Magistrate of the Lombax Praetorian Guard, and also an elder councilman of the Center for Advanced Lombax Research. Azimuth possessed a variety of equipment including a Praetorian OmniWrench, Hoverboots, and a pocket watch containing a picture of him and Kaden. Azimuth also had his own ship, which looked similar to the Aphelion.

Alister Azimuth is voiced by Joey D'Auria

Role in the Series-

Alister is Sonja's boyfriend later husband through out the series. Sonja always blushes when Alister said something sweet or romantic to her. Sonja and Alister first met each other in Sonja's Adventures of Ratchet and Clank-A Crack in Time and he falls in love with her. Alister Azimuth is one of the strongest members of Sonja's team and he always will not leave them.

Personality Edit

Alister was very much a Lombax man who carried the weight of the world on his shoulders, feeling immense pride in his accomplishments, and great shame in his mistakes. He was known to be daring, courageous, and very charismatic, being able to instantly bond with and convince Ratchet of his plans with much zeal and conviction in his voice and approach. He was known to banter during battle and make references to Kaden, often to Ratchet's growing chagrin. However, Azimuth's charisma and charm concealed a deep pain and darkness within his heart. His shame in allowing Tachyon to rise to power and the subsequent massacre of his race and his own banishment tormented him for over twenty years and drove him quite mad. He could be violent, impatient, impulsive, and downright murderous at times in his quest to undo his mistake with Tachyon, such as when he turned on and killed Ratchet. He showed much cognitive dissonance in the face of information about the Great Clock's nature that contradicted his own preconceived ideas. Alister also had a weakness and susceptibility towards obsessive behavior, such as his desperation to protect the galaxy after the Great War and his desire to use the Great Clock. His days as a military man also left him hostile and easily given to kill his enemies over incapacitating them. But deep down he was a man who loved his way of life, his people, and his friends. His guilt tormented him to the end of his days.

Ultimately, Alister was a man of pride and honor. After being informed of his mistake regarding the Great Clock, he willingly sacrificed his life to fix the Clock while bidding a genuine well meaning farewell to Ratchet.

Relationships Edit

Sonja Farrington Edit

Alister's girlfriend, later wife. He first met Sonja in Sonja's Adventures of Ratchet and Clank-A Crack in Time when he first saw her, falling in love with her too. Sonja and Alister's love grew stronger and stronger each time in their adventures including Sonja's Adventures of Kirby Right Back At Ya.

Ratchet Edit

At first, Azimuth tried to kill Ratchet when he thought he was one of Nefarious or Vorselon's assassins in a Holo-Guise. Once he got a closer look at him, he saw him as Kaden's son. He quickly bonded with Ratchet, becoming somewhat of a father-figure to him, and seeing Ratchet resemble Kaden in many ways while helping him search for Clank and fight against Nefarious. Ratchet had a deep respect for the elder, always calling him "General" or "Azimuth." Until his attack on The Great Clock, where he called him "Alister" for the first time. After defeating the VX-99 in Axiom City, he apologized to Ratchet for not trying to find him decades earlier, stating that would have, had he knew Ratchet was alive, but told him that from that moment onward, he had a family. Eventually, he told Ratchet of his unintentional role in the fall of the Lombaxes and Tachyon's rise to power, and his hope to use the Great Clock to undo that tragedy and give Ratchet his family back. For a while, Ratchet agreed, however after rescuing Clank from the Valkyries and learning of how misusing the Clock by using for long-distance travel would cause the universe to collapse on itself, Ratchet decided to abandon that plan, with Azimuth taking off on his own. Eventually after Nefarious was defeated, Alister killed Ratchet in his quest to turn back time. Clank, abandoning everything he was taught, turned time back six minutes, and saved Ratchet. Azimuth raced to the Orvus chamber, and pulled the lever back. Ratchet managed to convince Alister of his folly of nearing destroying the Great Clock and universe along with it after beating him, Azimuth gave his life to save the Clock after bidding Ratchet farewell.

Scarlett Red Edit

He and Scarlett get along so well since they met in Scarlett's childhood. Alister is somewhat a father-figure to her, and Scarlett is a daughter-figure to him. Scarlett reminds Alister of when he and Kaden met Scarlett's mother when they were little.

Kaden Edit

Kaden was Alister's best friend. They often hover booted in Krell Canyon. Kaden, while obliviously daring and bold, he also appeared to be the more cautious of the two, as he warned Azimuth not to trust the inventor, knowing that doing so would lead to disaster. When Alister failed to heed Kaden's warning and trusted Tachyon anyway, it ultimately lead to the disappearance of the Lombaxes, the rise of Tachyon's Empire and the death of Kaden and his lover, leaving his son, Ratchet as an orphan. Azimuth greatly regretted inadvertently playing his part in the death of his best friend and during his exile, sought out the Great Clock to turn back time and undo his terrible mistake.
