|“||Congratulations program; you just made yourself a prisoner.||”|
—Cutler, to Beck
|Out of universe information|
Cutler was a character in TRON: Uprising, voiced by Lance Reddick.
After fighting in the ISO War, Cutler heard about the "renegade" in Argon City, and traveled there to join him, believing that he was the hero Tron. Captured and sentenced to the Games, Cutler met and befriended Beck, unaware that Beck was the actual renegade; the two fought together in the Games and survived the first two rounds. For the final round, at the suggestion of Pavel, General Tesler pitted them against each other, offering freedom to the last one remaining alive. Cutler forfeited so that he and Beck would not have to derez each other. Tesler was unrelenting, willing to derez them both, but Paige, showing her more compassionate side, made Tesler keep his promise to the crowd and set Beck free, while Cutler was slated to be derezzed. Beck, in his guise as the renegade, then went on to rescue him.
After a lengthy escape from Argon City, which involved drawbridges and Light Boat chases, Cutler told his rescuer to make sure his friend Beck was thanked. Beck, still disguised, reassured him that Beck was alive and told him that the way to help his cause was to help spread the word about the revolution and inspire new recruits.
Personality and traits
Cutler was a compassionate and inspiring program, cool under pressure, confident in his abilities, and showing warmth and humor when given the chance. He claimed to have originally been programmed for aerodynamics, but also showed impressive skill as a warrior with both identity disc and light cycles, consistent with his background as a war veteran. He sought the renegade as a leader with whom to defeat Clu and restore peace to the Grid.
