The Utilitons are a tribe of robots created by Jacob.
The Utilitons are small, relatively simple box-like tripod robots. Though designed to help all humans, they only obey Jacob, and particularly respond to the word 'Applesauce'.
The Utilitons were the first ever utility robots created by Jacob when he still worked with Kane, before Deluxe existed. They were designed to make life in Detroit easier and safer, and were equipped with AI that anticipated human commands. Unfortunately, they only listened to Jacob, and became dangerous. Jacob begged Kane to shut down the project. Jacob left, believing Kane complied.
Soon after Jacob left, Kane retrained the utilitons to capture 'enemies of the public' and bring them to Kane's interrogation bot, known as the Beast. The Beast could not be controlled, and Kane sealed the lab.
The utilitons became the slaves of the Beast, who told them that every human was their enemy. Disobedience was punished severely. The bots lived this way until Sam and Philip stumbled into the lab and were captured. The robots fought the Burners who attempted to rescue the kids, until Jacob appeared. The utilitons then allied themselves with the Burners to take down the Beast after Chuck gave them a speech about freedom.
