Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Episode 94: "Keeping a Promise, Part 1"
Pearson appeared along with Bolton in Satellite. They both appeared before Crow and the children in his care, due to an incident involving the father of one of the children. Pearson and Bolton Dueled against the two individuals who caused the incident.
Like Crow himself, Pearson also enjoyed looking out for children in Satellite. However, he is distinct from Crow in the fact that he made sure that those kids could fulfill their own potential. Believing in this task, Crow helped Pearson on his research, which was an engine made of junk from the Satellite.
However, everything changed one day, when Robert Pearson dueled against an individual who used "Blood Mefist" against him. Shortly afterwards, Pearson died in a fire. Seconds before his death, Crow arrives at the building. Knowing that he couldn't be saved, Pearson gave Crow his Duel Disk, and requested for him to take his Duel Runner, Blackbird, and look after the children.
It was revealed that Pearson was killed by Bolton after Pearson denied the financial help offered by people from New Domino City, and thus, was unable to finish their project. (In the English version, Pearson was sent to the Netherworld rather than killed.)
