Battle Angel Alita Wiki

Spot, known in Japan as Pochi (ポチ Pochi?), was the pet of Rivet's family.


Spot was a medium sized light coloured dog. In the process of turning him into a cyborg, Rivet dissected him and replaced his eyes, midsection, and legs with mechanical parts.


Rivet was fascinated with cybernetic medicine since his youth and taught himself by using small animals such as frogs, killing and turning them into mechanical versions of themselves. He attempted to do the same with Spot but was discovered by his parents, who were horrified. They took him out and severely beat him, disowning him.
