Profile: Cool, calm, but not always collected, Axle is use to the environment of a well established infirmary. Being thrust into a combat zone is really not his cup of energon. Not lacking in courage when it comes to performing his duties, Axle often feels rushed to get his patients patched up so they can be thrown back into the heat of battle. Often times he comes to blows with his superiors concerning the welfare of his patients' medical conditions, and their abilities to perform their duties after he's patched them up. Some may say that Axle cares just a little too much, but if it wasn't for this field medic; "You'd be a molten pile of slag right about now!" Most often, when not in the field, Axle can be found anywhere there's a computer handy, usually studying the archived files of well known medics...perhaps he's getting some pointers? Axle is considered to be an admirable field medic, but he lacks the belief in his full capabilities, however, he has been getting a lot better with his "self doubt" issues.
Abilities: In his alt mode, Axle is capable of reaching a top speed of 180 mph. He carries a Balance disruptor gyro gun which temporarily renders enemies gyro equilibrium circuits scrambled. Axle's skills in hand to hand combat are considered average, however he considers his hands to be healing instruments not weapons to be used to bring about the possible maiming of others. Axle can also use some of his medical equipment (i.e. laser scalpels and arc welders) as secondary weapons; thankfully, however, he has never had to resort to their use in such a manner.
Weaknesses: Speed is not one of Axle's highly commendable assets. He lacks the speed of most of his Autobot brethren, and when he's transporting a patient on the bed of his alt mode, his speed is hindered further. As a medic Axle swore to help those in need; he has even considered patching up some Cons if need be, but has thought better of the matter...well, so far. He considers all life to be precious, even if that life happens to be a sworn enemy. [From Hex's notes: "Can you believe it? For all the doc's skills, he is still using Kup-old Delta-IV internal cooling fans! It is basically a miracle I haven't managed to cause and internal meltdown on him given how heated he gets towards me at times."]
