Bender is a Unit 22 Bending Unit made of 40% Zinc and 40% Titanium. His father was killed by a can opener and he is the 1729th male offspring of his mother. Bender’s full name is Bender Bending Rodriguez and his body age is four but his head is 1057 years old. He went to Bending State College where he majored in Bending and minored in Robo-American Studies. He had a flourishing career bending Girders but became suicidal after discovering they were meant for suicide booths. Fry managed to save him and recruited him on Planet Express, where Bender became the ship’s cook. Bender’s fuel comes from alcohol so he is legitimately addicted otherwise sobriety would render his body uncontrollable. He is also quite fond of stealing, smoking cigars and watching television. Bender also has magnets stuck to his head which cause him to sing like a folk singer.
