Bio

Maru is the mechanic tug at the Piston Peak Air Attack base. Friendly with a sarcastic sense of humor, he’s been around a long time and has the cluttered hangar to prove it. With no budget for new parts, Maru’s many shelves of old parts and machinery come in quite handy. As a result of his inability to purchase new parts he has become a master of repurposing old parts and making them as good as new. This has lead to his famous motto. “It’s better than new!”.  Maru's skills exceed Dottie's who said she couldn't make Dusty a gearbox, Maru, on the other hand, succeeded at doing so.[1] Though he said it was the hardest job he had ever done.

Livery

Maru is gray and purple.
