The unit, codenamed Legion,(inspired by the Roman Legion, the greatest guard, and army in ancient history) was the brainchild of the new F.B.I.

Background/History in Void (optional reading-not current info)
Drednaut was originally called Boots N Dreds. He was an Atlantean Avitar. An Avitar is a creature of pure magic that is created to be a protector for the rich or politically important,(think magical Secret Service) usually bound to some type of magical item like a weapon, piece of jewelry, or article of clothing. When an Avitar is called by its creators, he can protect them with a shield of intangibility (like a ghost) Avatars have no self-consciousness and are basically giant puppets controlled by there creators. Some unseen force in Void City caused Dreds to slowly become self-aware.
Drednaut was originally created by two children with magic from a pair of gloves and boots that used to belong to there parents. The family of four were Royal refugees from the lost city of Atlantis hiding in Void city. As Drednaut grew an understanding he eventually became self-aware. When it was safe for his family to return home he remained in Void city. But his past caught up with him and he was attacked by soldiers loyal to the king who sought his family's destruction in Atlantis. (See Drednaut vs Indigo battle)
Hoping to use his magical knowledge and information of the Royals location, the king ordered Drednaut be brought before him in Atlantis unharmed. But he was mortally wounded and died before the king could extract any information from him. What the dark king didn't know was that Drednaut used his magical knowledge to transfer his consciousness into a damaged droid soldier moments before his attackers carried his body away. Trapped in the shell of a damaged battle droid, Drednaut’s mobility was extremely debilitated. So he contacted an old friend for help. His friend, Mr. Impossible, began a search for a new host body for his fallen ally. (See Harriet Glauben vs White Dwarf).
Eventually, Mr. Impossible’s investigation led him to a fighter named the Mechanic. The Mechanic arranged a meeting with his employer Mr. Cogg. At that meeting, a deal was struck. Mr. Impossible traded the damaged but highly advanced Atlantis technology for the DNA sample of Drednaut taken by the Mechanic sometime before (See Mechanic vs Drednaut battle). Unknown to Impossible or Dreds, the sample was preserved in a syringe along with stolen Nanite tech that Cog was desperate to get rid of so he wasn't caught with it. Drednaut was able to use what little magic he had left to regenerate using the DNA sample. He is alive but at a great cost. During his regeneration, he lost all of the magic that tied him to Atlantis. But the Nanite tech that he absorbed from the syringe gifted him with a new set of abilities. (listed above). Dreds is currently being hunted by the engineer that crafted that Nanite tech because it is unique.
