Profile: Vain is perhaps the most appropriate word to describe Iguanus. Truly, he is mesmerised by his appearance, particularly his robotic form. He makes no effort to conceal this fact, often finding himself staring at, in his opinion, his exquisite double in reflective surfaces in a dreamily fashion. His fellow Decepticons view his vanity as something of an irritation, a nuisance brought up or forced upon them at the most inconvenient of times, but they cannot deny that it is the least of their concerns.

Large doses of sadism have also been injected into his personality, raging torrents of brutality streaking through his vital systems. Killing is an activity he thoroughly enjoys and due to a mixture of his pride and cruelty, he is always seeking to challenge the finest opponents, constantly feeling the need to embarrass them in single combat and, ultimately, prove his superiority over them. He is delighted when a worthy competitor accepts his proposal and claims to fight at his best in these moments. Because he knows if he emerges victorious, he will have not only vanquished a worthy opponent, but appeased his darkest side in the greatest possible manner.

Surprisingly, Iguanus speaks well for a Decepticon, his voice containing a gentleness and a degree of sophistication not normally encountered within their ranks. But one should never be fooled by it. Many Autobots have met their demise at the servos of Iguanus, his sweet tone and simple charm enough to cajole them to lower their guard while he steadily unwraps his murderous tendencies and delivers the killing blow. Even a few of his comrades have fallen prey to his gracious disposition.

As perverse as he is, Iguanus isn't without a characteristic that sticks out further than the rest. It is not known when or where it happened, but he alleges to have formed a personal bond with reptiles of all types from a variety of worlds scattered throughout the galaxy. He then became fascinated by them, going so far as to modify certain areas on his body and trying to emulate their demeanour and attack tactics in battle, all so he could achieve a resemblance to his favourite species of reptiles. For his role as a terror trooper, the shock and horror broadcast from friend and foe alike caused by his appearance is a pleasure he never tires of, and is something he would have no other way.

Abilities: Iguanus' optics boast hypnobeams that can override some targets' willpower and temporarily program them with new directives of his choosing. He is armed with an air blaster that shoots pressurised air with as much force as a hurricane; this weapon is useable in all modes. In vehicle mode, motorcycle wheels have retractable spinning blades that can slice through armour. With significant finesse, Iguanus uses them as a hand-to-hand weapon when the opportunity arises. His internal mechanisms can generate an equilibrium distorting effect that strikes targets with intense vertigo. He is extremely strong, resistant to damage, and skilled as a warrior.

Weaknesses: Iguanus suffers from no known physical weaknesses, but sometimes his arrogance leads him to believe that only the greatest warriors deserve his attention, leaving him in a relatively vulnerable position on the battlefield should he not decide to give his all against an opponent unworthy of his talents.
