Able is a supporting character of TRON: Uprising voiced by Reginald VelJohnson. Beck's "grandfather" type figure, Able owns and runs the garage where Beck, Zed and Mara work. As one of Flynn's first programs, he is the elder statesman of Argon Sector. He is constantly worried about Beck and what the future may hold.
Able was one of the first programs created by Kevin Flynn. He is an elder and statesman of Argon Sector. Able owns a garage, devoting his life to the maintenance of vehicles, but when Clu's forces took over, things changed. Able was upset when one of his employees was derezzed after an argument with a guard, but urged the rest to stay calm, thinking that there was nothing he or anyone could do. He kept this policy even when Zed and Mara were captured by Clu's forces, but was nonetheless relieved when they returned, saved by the Renegade.
Able ran a tight business, scolding Beck for missing work and sending Hopper and Bartik away when they attempted to intimidate his workers. He couldn't refuse repair jobs for General Tesler and his troops, and even delivered a giant tank to Tesler's ship in person, but made it clear that the Occupation's disrespectful behavior was not welcome.
Able recognized the distinctive T symbol worn by both Tron and the Renegade, and, upon being returned to the garage with injuries sustained during one of the Renegade's fights with Tesler, told his employees that it was Tron who saved him. However, after repeated failed attempts to keep Beck out of trouble, he eventually disclosed that he had known for a long time who the Renegade really was. He then contacted Tron, whom he had secretly been helping for a long time to maintain his healing chamber in the Outlands, and threatened to cut off his support if Tron kept involving Beck in the rebellion, insisting that they both knew how this would end and refusing to let Beck become "one of your mistakes." Though Tron would not compromise, he and Able fought back-to-back when a swarm of gridbugs attacked, and Tron lent Able his snowmobile when they parted.
