Character Bio

GIR photo
GIR is a malfunctioning and dimwitted Irken SIR (Standard-issue Information Retrieval) Unit who was assigned to Zim. He was built by The Almighty Tallest out of SIR unit remains and whatever they could find in the trash and their pockets. GIR was passed off to Zim as a "top-secret" and "advanced model". His name is an unexplained, self-applied moniker. He himself has no idea as to where the name came from. He disguises himself in public by wearing a green dog suit which fools most humans, despite looking and acting nothing like an Earth dog. GIR is seen at a dance club, and is dropped off by the girls who took him there; he also loves pigs and pizza.

GIR has no sense of who is a friend and who is an enemy. He also rarely understands the severity of the predicaments he finds himself in, unless it involves pain.
GIR's upbeat, clueless, thoughtful and friendly personality is a contrast to Zim's self-centered, imperious behavior. GIR enjoys taking part in Earth's culture, while Zim distances himself from it in order to complete his mission. GIR does not usually obey Zim, which leads to Zim furiously shouting at GIR. However, GIR and Zim occasionally seem to care for one another. Zim often calls GIR a "horrible little robot" and has referred to GIR as insane, though Zim will occasionally show some affection.
