A Dbot is a Defence Robot and is coloured black. The FSS Beagle has almost 200 defence robots designed to protect the vessel and its crew from external threats. To the uninitiated, Dbots look like sbots except for their colour, but they are much more powerful. Dbots only heed programming in alien battle language.

The dbot's arsenal of built-in weaponry includes a needler, a heavy blaster, a hand blaster, and a grenade launcher with three light grenades, three smoke grenades, six gamma grenades, six sonic grenades, three neuron grenades, and three tangler grenades. Most dbots have a primary weapon they use predominantly (and will have complimentary feats for). They may use up to two of their weapons per round.
Dbot actions depend on their programming, and they are sometimes unpredictable. Generally, though, dbots on guard duty in or around the City of the Gods negotiate before attacking, warning characters to stay-away from restricted areas instead of just shooting them. Dbots outside of the City of the Gods automatically attack anything but the aliens and their servants.

Damage Reduction (Su): A dbot has damage reduction of 20/magic.
