Forward, A.K.A. Experiment 188, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. She is designed to launch targets forward..
Experiment 188 was the 188th genetic experiment created by Jumba with Hämsterviel's funding. She was designed to launch targets forward. (Does so by using her long tail that she uses to catch the victims as she prepares to throw them with impressive aim at high speeds up to a mile away).
188 and the other first 624 experiments were deactivated and smuggled to Earth by Jumba during his mission to capture Experiment 626.
All of the experiment pods were released and scattered across the island of Kauai.
At the unknown point, she was activated, captured, tamed and named Forward.
