N. Gin is a stocky red-haired cyborg with only half a face and a large missile protruding from the right side of his head. He is similar to that of Cortex's previous henchman Nitrus Brio: he is less impulsive than Cortex and prefers to think over the situation rather than rushing to a solution, which usually leads to a loud rebuttal by his superior whenever he questions his way of doing things. After working at a stapler factory for a time, N. Gin went on to become a world-renowned physicist in the defense industry. However, due to a budget cut, one of his missile projects ended up faulty and, as a result, went awry, lodging itself into N. Gin's head. With his intellect, he reconstructed it as a life-support system at the cost of his sanity, however, the missile is still live and is only activated only when he is stressed or angry, leaving him with a large headache. This near fatal accident turned nearly half his head into metal, and the eye located on the non-mechanical side of his head is somewhat small, but the eye on the other side of his face is large, circular, and with a small black pupil occupying it. Shortly after the missile incident, N. Gin was taken in by Dr. Neo Cortex to replace the double-crossed Nitrus Brio. N. Gin doesn't acknowledge Nitrus Brio at all because he was Cortex's original assistant, which makes him jealous of the latter. He is prone to fits of giggling and sobbing, extremely effeminate, has low self-esteem, crossdressing tendencies, and enjoys making doomsday weapons out of odd items such as fuzzy slippers. As a child, N. Gin was a classmate of Neo Cortex and Nitrus Brio in Madame Amberly's Academy of Evil. He had a paper airplane stuck in his head, foreshadowing the missile lodged in his head later in his life. Coco Bandicoot thinks he is cute in an adorable kind of way because she likes the way he waddles, even though she fought him once when she was younger.
