Rhomboid "Boid" Vreedle is one of the Vreedle Brothers. He is significantly less intelligent and more trigger-happy than his older brother Octagon. He, like his brother, are clones of the original brothers, as revealed in the episode Con of Rath.
In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, he has a flat-top haircut (which is covered by a hat with goggles on) and he wears a orange shirt, red overalls, and black gloves, belt and belt pouches.
While attending the Plumbers Academy, he and Octagon had crew cuts.
In Omniverse, he is buff and still wears the same outfit from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, but now has orange gloves and belt pouches, instead of black. He also has a black strip around the wrist on each glove.
Rhomboid is the less intelligent of the Vreedle Brothers. However, he is more intelligent than Rath, though less mean. He appears to be the workhorse.
Powers and Abilities
Rhomboid is stronger than his brother, which makes him perfect for heavy lifting and brute force. He normally carries whatever arsenal they have or loot they have just stolen. He is also able to survive the vacuum of space without a spacesuit.
His main ability lies within his immortality, as his memories and experiences are constantly being transferred to a cloning chamber, everytime his previous body is destroyed or he otherwise dies in some manner. According to his brother, this situation has happened on a fairly regular basis.
Being the dumber of the pair, Rhomboid's actions have led to several defeats. One must give him instructions clearly and as simply as possible, otherwise he will take any general order literally, such as pulling and throwing the pin of a grenade while keeping the explosive part. His mind is somewhat hardwired to shoot first and shoot a lot.
Like Octagon, Rhomboid fears his mother, Ma Vreedle.
A rhomboid is a parallelogram with 4 equivalent sides; however, a rhomboid, or more properly rhombus, is not always a square. For something to be a square it must not only have four equivalent sides but also four right angles at the corners, a rhombus however does not fall under this requirement. Thus one could say that while all squares are rhombuses, not all rhombuses are squares. It is the same with rectangles and squares where the rectangle replaces the rhombus in the metaphor.
