Biography

Beck's Beginning

Tesler, being one of Clu's generals, was tasked with taking over a section of the Grid. This he successfully did, swiftly conquering Argon City with his army. He ran into complications, however, when the young program Beck fought back after seeing his friend derezzed before his eyes. Beck had destroyed a new statue of Clu and then overturned a Light Rail full of prisoners and freeing them. Tesler decided to handle the renegade himself but, in the ensuing duel, failed to derez Beck and was defeated: Beck effected Tesler's fall off a building by cutting off his arms. Helpless, unable to grab anything, Tesler fell a long way down onto a light rail beam where he was eventually rescued by Paige.

The Renegade

After his embarrassing defeat at the hands of Beck, Tesler did not go on the front lines quite as much. He watched the games at the Coliseum, unaware that the Renegade that he so hated was fighting in the tournament, having been captured for breaking curfew. And so it was that before Tesler's eyes, Beck and another program defeated wave one of their enemies and then escaped. They were recaptured and brought back by Paige, but again they defeated the next round of opponents. Tesler remarked that they were "too good" and Pavel, his second-in-command, suggested that the two fight each other for freedom, thus eliminating the threat of programs beating the games. Then Cutler, Beck's accomplice, forfeited to prevent Beck and himself from killing each other. Tesler was willing to derez them both but Paige, showing her more compassionate side, convinced him to let the winner go free. So Tesler sent Beck off and had Pavel move Cutler to Argon Square to be derezzed.

This turned out to be a mistake, as Beck, once again in the guise of Tron, broke Cutler out and the two escaped from Argon City entirely. But Tesler wasn't giving up that easily. When the escapee and the Renegade jumped in a Light Boat to escape, Tesler gave pursuit in a boat of his own. He very nearly succeeded this time, but the duo was rescued by the actual Tron in his boat. Once again, Tesler had failed to derez the Renegade and achieve his ends.

Blackout

When Tesler went to inspect his new energy drilling operation, he found that Paige had ordered the drill be shut down. Angered by this decision, Tesler ordered it turned back on and replaced Paige with Pavel to oversee the drilling. Before leaving, he told Paige she had been sloppy lately. He later made a public announcement that the renegade had tried to sap all the energy, and promised to find him and bring him to justice. He congratulated Paige on her idea for blaming the energy plot on the renegade.

Powers and abilities

When Tesler makes his hands glow bright red, he has the ability to block Disc attacks or to send a powerful charge through them: When he punched Beck, the program flew across the room and slammed into a Light Rail car where the force of the impact made a large dent. Tesler can also launch his arms out from his body to grab or punch.
