Weapon: Plasma Beam Rifle
Flash

Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Decoy
Alternate Modes: Sports Car
Weapons: Spin Turbine Engine
Height: 22ft/ 6.70m
Quote: "Don't blink, I was that blur on the horizon."


Strength: 5
Intelligence: 7
Dexterity: 7
Speed: 9
Endurance: 6
Courage: 8
Firepower: 7
Accuracy: 6
Melee: 5
Tech Skill: 4
Charisma: 6

Profile: Fastest and most ambitious of the Turbomasters; a flashy, streamlined dare-devil. Flash's entire job is to be shot at. Nicknamed Breakneck by his teammates, the group only tolerates his stunts because they usually pay off in the end. He uses his blazing fast speed to draw Decepticons fire away from his teammates. Uses super speed and manoeuvrability to get out of tight corners. He's also not too shabby a fighter, specializing in using his Spin Turbine Engine to get in close enough to surprised aerial foes to peel off a few good shots of his own.

Abilities: Extremely courageous, always charging into battle first to draw enemy fire. A highly skilled Stuntman is capable of pulling of nigh-impossible feats of skill in vehicle mode. Flash can travel at speeds exceeding 250 MPH in vehicle mode. His Spin Turbine Engine causes an enemies’ internal gyroscope to short out.

Weaknesses: A show off, his antics are as irritating to his fellow Autobots as they are to the Decepticons.

Please note, I will not be playing this character.

Motto: "I had a pun about insanity, but then I lost it."
Weapon: Flamethrower Cannons
Name: Ricochet
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Gunner
Alt. mode: Porsche 997 Turbo
Weapons: Shoulder mounted automatic shell cannon, precision plasma dart rifle.
Height: 28ft / 8.9m
Quote: “Either help me destroy my enemies or get out of my way."

Strength: 7
Intelligence: 7
Dexterity: 7
Speed: 8
Endurance: 8
Courage: 8
Firepower: 7
Accuracy: 10
Melee: 4
Tech Skill: 8
Charisma: 4
Rank: 5

Appearance: Ricochet transforms into a black Porsche 997 Turbo sports car with gold and red flames decorating both doors and on top of his hood. His robot mode is black and white with gold accents and trim.

Profile: Ricochet has a temper unparalleled within the Autobot ranks and wastes no time picking a fight with a fellow ‘Bot should they say or do something that provokes him. He has an unnaturally strong sense of justice and believes that no Cybertronian should go unpunished for their crimes, feeling as though he is the perfect mech to serve as both judge and executioner. Unfortunately for the poor spark in question, the retribution he dishes out is usually so harsh that most Autobots are left feeling sorry for his victims.

Regardless of his anger management issues, Ricochet is an expert marksman who is brutally efficient on the field of battle. It’s the one place where he can unleash his rage and not be chastised for it by his commanding officer. Of course, that only applies as long as said fury is directed towards the Decepticons and not other Autobots. While Ricochet’s personality traits are sorely lacking, his exceptional combat capabilities have earned him the respect of his comrades. As a result, Ricochet has also managed to develop some friendships during his military service, even if they are precarious ones at best.

Abilities: Ricochet is unmatched as a marksman and excels at laying down suppressive fire. As a master of ranged weaponry, he can accurately fire any blaster or rifle that finds itself in his possession. With his precision plasma rifle, he can hit a tin can from a maximum effective distance of six miles. With his shoulder mounted automatic shell cannon, he can provide unrelenting support fire at a rate of 30 shells per second.

Because most Autobots won't risk conversation with the aggressive gunner, few realize that beyond his gruesome acts of war, Ricochet is a technical master of his field and is capable of using and performing extensive repairs on numerous projectile weapon types, even during the heat of combat. While in vehicle mode, Ricochet can reach an impressive 155 mph if given enough straight road to do so, but his true ability shines through when driving on dirt or gravel.

Weaknesses: Ricochet is rather unapproachable for an Autobot. His extreme sense of justice and lone wolf-style attitude may serve him well as a marksman, but when it comes to camaraderie amongst his fellow Autobots, he is seldom considered. It is only by his incredible skill in range combat that he gains any respect from his peers as the majority of ‘Bots feel that they can only truly depend on Ricochet while fighting alongside him on the battlefield.

In addition, due to his intense specialization in ranged warfare, Ricochet is all but inept in melee combat. He is physically strong, but without his projectile weaponry he often has no other choice but to withdraw when faced with a physical confrontation.

Heyas, thanks for checking us out. Ricochet is a good starter pick. If you could just add a sample post for the character then we can check out what you can do with him and evaluate the app as a whole. Thanks :D

Sample Post: Ricochet had been at the training station for countless cycles, blasting each of the simulation targets to smithereens with his aim. Eventually, he grew bored of it. "Why can't I blast some filthy Decepticons now? I've been destroying these targets for far too long,", he muttered. After a cycle or two of waiting, he was sent into the field. "Finally, some REAL action!", Ricochet said. At the battlefield, he made sure each and every Decepticon there wished they were never created. "GO BACK TO PRIMUS, YOU PILES OF RUST!", Ricochet yelled as he demolished another 3 'cons and watched them drop, barely recognizable by their fellow warriors.

After all the Decepticons at that skirmish had become scrap metal, Ricochet was satisfied. "Let's see if they want some more chassis-beating next battle," Ricochet smirked and turned to go back to base. All the Autobots there made sure they would never cross Ricochet, ever.

Looks good indeed. Approved. Welcome to the game :)

You can post his profile in the canon Autobots section if there's not one there already, then make a new post for yourself in the roll call thread. Then feel free to do a little reading and dive in. Ricochet was last in the Earthbound action, getting treated for some damage. He should be fixed by now and could be taking part in the battle against the Fallen in Australia. Don't hesitate to PM me or another mod if you have any questions. Have fun!

Motto: "You can run,you'll just die trying"
Weapon: Fusion Cannon
I would like these two

Name: Silverbolt
Allegiance: Autobot
Sup-group: Aerialbots
Function: Aerialbot Leader
Alt. mode: Rockwell B-1 Lancer
Weapons: Electrostatic Discharger Rifle
Height: 33 ft / 10.06 m
Quote: “Don't look down, look straight ahead."


Strength: 6
Intelligence:8
Dexterity: 7
Speed: 9
Endurance: 8
Courage: 8
Firepower: 8
Accuracy: 7
Melee:8
Tech Skill: 7
Charisma: 7
Rank:8

Profile: Silverbolt is scared of heights. It is this one trait, above all else, that determines the rest of his behavior. He projects the image of a brave, grimly determined warrior, befitting his role as Aerialbot Commander. In truth, he is just that. But it is a constant struggle for him to maintain this persona, to never falter or show any sign of emotional weakness to those he leads. Helped by the sleek, aerodynamic jet form that makes him appear to be a natural-born flyer, Silverbolt knows that everything about him belies even a hint of the existence of his phobia. And, in fact, no one is aware he has this problem, except Optimus Prime. It is for that reason the Autobot Commander selected Silverbolt to lead the Aerialbots; Optimus figured if Silverbolt felt responsible for the welfare of others, he'd have less time to worry about himself. Given that Silverbolt is an excellent leader, Optimus was right.

Abilities: In jet mode, Subject's top speed is Mach 3 for a maximum range of 4,500 miles consuming the least amount of fuel. Underside is an electrostatic battery that can store random electrons during flight, which Subject can release as a giant bolt of 150,000 volts of electricity. In robot mode, Subject's electrostatic discharger rifle has the same capabilities. One of the few Autobots who can fly as a robot.

Holomatter Avatar: Arrayed in military pilot uniform, Silverbolt's avatar displays a young, well-kept man with a serious expression worn on his face.

Weaknesses: When not giving orders or fighting, Subject becomes vulnerable to his fear of flying, which can result in crashing.

____________________________________________


Name: Perceptor
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Scientist/Sniper
Alt. mode: Microscope, stationary field artillery piece
Weapons: Long range sniper rifle, 2 semi-automatic pistols, shoulder mounted light cannon
Abilities: Enhanced vision in right optic
Height: 30ft / 9.1m
Quote: "One’s ultimate truth lies in one’s molecular structure."


Strength: 07
Intelligence: 10
Dexterity: 08

Endurance: 07
Courage: 08
Firepower: 08
Accuracy: 10
Melee: 06
Tech Skill: 10
Charisma: 08
Rank: 07

Profile: Perceptor's thirst for knowledge is unquenchable. He will seek it to the exclusion of all else. Perceptor's specific role in the Autobot cause is putting to good use his specialties in metallurgy, electrical engineering and other sciences closely related to Transformer physiology in order to help put an end to the war. Optimus Prime considers this research vital to the Autobots' cause. There was a time that Perceptor was not easily drawn into joining with other Autobots to do anything other than his work, but that has changed. While collecting samples on Corata-Vaz, Perceptor and the small group of security officers with him were attacked by a group of Decepticons. Perceptor was severely injured during the skirmish requiring him to spend an exorbitant amount of time in a CR chamber at the Kimia Facility.

After coming back online he went directly to his lab and began work on upgrading his body. The modifications performed included forearm stabilizers, a new breastplate made from adamant crystal and an enhanced optic equipped with a long range targeting visor. All of the enhancements, along with his dour demeanor, have made Perceptor into a focused indispensible sniper.

Abilities: Perceptor is extremely intelligent. His capacity for data storage is second only to Optimus Prime's. Although familiar with all the sciences, his specialties are metallurgy, molecular chemistry, and electrical engineering. He has two different capacities in microscope mode. He can magnify objects up to 10,000 times as an optical microscope and up to a million times as a scanning electron microscope. Using his magnifying lenses to concentrate and intensify its beam, he can convert his lens barrel into a powerful light cannon. It can blast a hole in a cinder block wall 2,000 miles away with pinpoint accuracy. He can use the cannon in robot mode or convert to a third form and use it as a stationary field artillery piece. Thanks to his enhancements Perceptor has become an expert marksman.

Weaknesses: Any problems with his magnifying lenses will bring his scientific research to a halt.

Motto: "Face it: we're doomed."
Weapon: Black Magic
If two is too many, then I'd like to pick Bludgeon to begin with, please.

Name: Blades
Allegiance: Autobot
Sub-group: Protectobots
Function: Air Support
Alt. mode: Bell UH-1Y Venom Helicopter
Weapons: Photon Pistol, Twin Armour Piercing “smart” Rocket Launchers, Rotor Blades
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: "War's a dirty game—and I'm a dirty player!"

Profile: [FROM: Hot Spot, Protectobot Leader TO: Autobot High Command,
RE: Request Dismissal of Internal Affairs Investigation #455.43]
I don't believe the incident in question [Cross Reference: Emergency Request #455.43, Iacon District] requires any further review. Yes, Blades did act with lethal force, but I believe he did so only out of necessity and completely within the boundaries of his duty. As always, he performed his primary air support function well. At the moment in question, he saw that he had to act decisively to save the innocent mechanoids in the market area, so he did so. True, he did take the unorthodox route of eviscerating the targets with his rotor blades in hand-to-hand combat, but it's no secret that Blades prefers one-on-one confrontations to long-range air attacks. Since the situation didn't specifically call for aerial tactics, I see no reason why Blades should be punished for acting in this fashion. The fact that he finds attacking from a distance unsporting compared to his “street fighting” techniques has never interfered with him doing his job, and he's always been a hard-working, enthusiastic, and loyal trooper—I can't ask for anything more from him.

Abilities: Blades has above-average strength and somewhat above-average intelligence. He's very good at his job, but he'd always rather exercise his unconventional “street fighting” style than attack from above. It's been said that he'd rather use his rotors to slash opponents than fly, and I can't argue that. In helicopter mode, he travels at 400 mph for up to 1,200 miles.

Garrus 9 – Corridors

"Yes, my lord Bludgeon," Umbra said, "I shall face you."

At Umbra's respectful reply, Bludgeon only nodded. He continued to carry the bulk of Icepick's weight. The Monstercon seemed more than content to let him do so, giving up the futile effort of trying to hold up any bit of his weight under his own power. He adjusted his grip on the Monstercon slightly as Umbra decided to bear some of the weight herself. It seemed that the aftereffects of combination were particularly draining on the energon reserves of the components. Or the battle with Overlord had also rendered considerable damage. In all likelihood, it was a combination of the two.

Inclining his head slightly, Bludgeon listened to Icepick and Umbra exchange idle chatter. He wondered what exactly was the nature of those two's relationship. Strange how willing this Autobot was to change her allegiance after four million years of continuous war. That would require further investigation later. For now, he would have a chat about his new disciple's less than impressive display of stealth.

“Umbra," Bludgeon remarked.

The black femme's head immediately jerked up to look Bludgeon in the optics, her faceshield now removed to reveal a fearful expression that had been partially concealed by it before. Bludgeon scowled. “Never show your fear, Umbra," Bludgeon chided critically, “Bare your blade at your adversaries. Never show them a moment's weakness."

“Yes, my lord..." Umbra muttered quietly in response, averting her optics slightly.

“Now as for the matter of your stealth abilities..." Bludgeon continued after he was sure the message had sunk in, “They are...less than impressive. Snaptrap apparently noticed your presence. You rely too heavily on your cloaking device. While such devices can be beneficial, they can become crutches as well. Never neglect the fundamentals."

Umbra said nothing but merely nodded her head in reply. Bludgeon considered the agent for a moment longer before turning his golden optics forward. They were nearing the amphitheater. Soon, very soon, he would be able to fully assess his disciple's skill as a master of diffusion. The prospect of such a battle...it set his optics aglow with anticipation.

Sample Post:

Cybertron, the Battle of Sherma Bridge


Cybertron was not wholly composed of warriors. Those who traced back any heritage to the military prowess of their forebears claimed kinship with two or three of the Thirteen tribes conquered by Nova Prime and incorporated into his empire. Among the warriors who preceded Bludgeon's generation of Cybertronians, there was one common element: defeat.

Bludgeon had been forged in the image of the warriors before him, in the form of a powerful tank, and with a gift for martial combat. He was immediately seized upon by the Functionists to join their security services, but such a life did not befit a warrior. Guarding the decadent and affluent while watching his spark wither away from toil and boredom was not the life he was destined to live.

When they died, the forged sparks of Cybertron ascended into the Allspark... if their lives had merited the honor and distinction. Only 'the greatest' of Cybertron could ascend, and that would not be Bludgeon's fate if he wasted his life patrolling around the dwellings and offices of those weaker than him. He had gifts, he had potential... and he wanted to put them to use.

The warrior tribes of Cybertron that preceded him had been routed and forcefully integrated into a fledgling empire. Bludgeon could see some parallels with that and the movement of Megatron and his Decepticons. When Bludgeon went to fight in Megatron's arena, it had been to put his talents to use; to escape from a pointless life and revel in a glorious, honorable death. And it was there Bludgeon found the path to fulfilling his destiny.

Megatron was powerful, but his goal, ultimately, was peace. He saw the war as means to form an empire to lead Cybertron to a new golden age, with himself at the helm. He wanted the slaughter to eventually end.

For Bludgeon, there was nothing but war. Nothing but the fight. If he was a warrior, as he truly believed, he was going to find glory on the battlefield. In victory... or in death.

For when he finally ascended into the afterlife, Bludgeon would do so after a glorious death... after he stood upon a mountain of the fallen that reached from the surface of Cybertron to Luna-2.

The Autobots were composed of many members of the security service Bludgeon had once worked within. They were blessed with combat prowess and alt modes suited to the fight.

That did not make them warriors.

Bludgeon drew his energo-sword and threw himself into the fray of Autobot soldiers. He heard their cries of surprise and fear. Saw them draw their weapons in slow, sluggish response.

Bludgeon applied his technique, a combination of his natural athleticism and the teachings of the ancient art of Metallikato, taught by his military forebears. He respected the discipline of such martial arts... but not the rigidity. Incorporating his own style (and using guns alongside his sword) had improved upon the past. His own will and willingness to adapt is what separated him from the warriors defeated before.

The Autobots feared him. That was another weakness Bludgeon did not share. They should've been honored to die in battle.

Only their leader, Optimus Prime, was worthy of Bludgeon's respect. He flung himself at Megatron upon a narrow bridge without doubt or hesitation, fighting on, even wounded, even bested... Bludgeon hoped Megatron would not succeed in killing the Autobot leader so Bludgeon could find the honor for himself.

"Mayhem Attack Squad, to me!" Bludgeon called on his commlink. "Press the attack!"

Most of Megatron's followers were opportunists capitalizing on the chance for their own profit or satisfying their own sadistic urges; the others were the weak banding together, using numerical advantage to appear strong. The other members who fought alongside Bludgeon shared his willingness to charge recklessly into battle, to defy death itself and taste the glory of victory.

Bludgeon was honored to lead Decepticons like that. Ideally, one day, he would lead only Decepticons worthy of being warriors of his new breed.

He would lead them to victory, and be a warrior-king. Or he would die in glorious combat, and become immortal, remembered forever as the greatest Cybertron had ever produced.

That was his destiny...

Profile: [FROM: Hot Spot, Protectobot Leader TO: Autobot High Command,
RE: Request Dismissal of Internal Affairs Investigation #455.43]
I don't believe the incident in question [Cross Reference: Emergency Request #455.43, Iacon District] requires any further review. Yes, Blades did act with lethal force, but I believe he did so only out of necessity and completely within the boundaries of his duty. As always, he performed his primary air support function well. At the moment in question, he saw that he had to act decisively to save the innocent mechanoids in the market area, so he did so. True, he did take the unorthodox route of eviscerating the targets with his rotor blades in hand-to-hand combat, but it's no secret that Blades prefers one-on-one confrontations to long-range air attacks. Since the situation didn't specifically call for aerial tactics, I see no reason why Blades should be punished for acting in this fashion. The fact that he finds attacking from a distance unsporting compared to his “street fighting” techniques has never interfered with him doing his job, and he's always been a hard-working, enthusiastic, and loyal trooper—I can't ask for anything more from him.

Abilities: Blades has above-average strength and somewhat above-average intelligence. He's very good at his job, but he'd always rather exercise his unconventional “street fighting” style than attack from above. It's been said that he'd rather use his rotors to slash opponents than fly, and I can't argue that. In helicopter mode, he travels at 400 mph for up to 1,200 miles. In both modes, he's armed with two launchers that fire “smart” rockets; these rockets seek their targets based on digitally encoded images that they can record on the battlefield. In robot mode, he wields a photon pistol that fires intense beams of light. Whenever possible, Blades detaches his rotors for use in hand-to-hand combat.

Sample Post:

The world had called to him long before their arrival was even anticipated. Like a sweet whisper caressing his audio modules, it had promised him many things, each offer more tantalising than the last.

Honour.

Glory.

Power.

His personal quarters featured no illumination. Lost in the inky blackness, he was crushed by the dark, seated on the cold steel floor, legs folded, energo-sword lying across his lap, actuators resting on both ends of the deactivated blade. The faint sounds of footsteps and idle talk slithered through the walls of his quarters—though not enough to warrant a presence of their own. The darkness was his only companion.

Kerthal. The world had been calling to him for some time. A tiny planet smothered in white sand and boiling under a vicious sun occupying an emerald sky, it appeared to be of no significance.

Scout elements in its system, however, discovered vast quantities of precious metals lurking beneath its surface. Further intelligence also indicated a scant population owing to the few settlements scattered across Kerthal, the treacherous landscape, ever shifting according to its unpredictability, making it impossible to colonise the planet on a global scale.

So infiltration protocols were established, and the residents of the planet, observed, studied. Now was the moment for the Decepticons to reveal themselves and take what they came for.

Although he sat on the floor, his posture remained straight and rigid, as if frozen in that position. Neither light emanated from his optics nor noise of any kind issued from his oral cavity. Still and silent.

The feeling was growing stronger, evolving into something almost physical. Before, it'd been comparable to that of a fleeting movement darting past him. Currently, it accompanied him with an increasing frequency like a great invisible figure looming over him.

Kerthal was the reason for this. He was sure of it. Since leaving the previous world he and his cell had claimed for the Decepticon Empire, this particular feeling had persisted to be around him, there but not quite there, close but never in sight.

The planet held the answer. And he would be descending upon it soon enough.

The path he walked on: there was more to traverse. More brick for him to follow. Another sign to guide him in the right direction.

Fate had a strange way of exhibiting clues to those who saw. It never failed to amuse him, either, how most were blind. That fact usually pulled at his lip components, moulding them into a slight smile.

Light flickered within Bludgeon's dull optics, the severe shade of red that coloured them returning to lend his face-plate an expression of concentrated fury. His meditation concluded, Bludgeon rose slowly from the floor, energo-sword confined in his grasp. He deposited the blade in a sub-space compartment, before exiting his personal quarters. It was time.

He had a world to conquer.

He had another fragment of destiny bequeathed to him to complete and solidify the dream he'd set out to achieve. Of becoming the ultimate warrior.

Nothing else needed to be said. No one else's opinion mattered.

Only he and his goal did.

Weapon: Saber Blade
Name: Nosecone
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Assault Vehicle
Sub Group: Technobots
Alt. mode: Mining Drill
Weapons: X-Ray Laser Pistol, Videocom Tracking Rocket Propelled Missiles
Special Abilities: Nearly indestructible drill.
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: "Its not whose fastest; its who reaches the finish line first."

Courage: 8.0
Firepower: 7.0
Accuracy: 7.0
Melee: 7.0
Tech Skill: 7.0
Charisma: 6.0
Rank: 5.0

Profile: As a result of his very disciplined training in the dangerous but vital job of thermal-energy magma miner back on Cybertron, Nosecone has developed into a very careful warrior. He's slow and methodical in everything he does, weathering enemy artillery fire with the same calm that he exhibits when his fellow Autobots criticize him for his apparent laziness. His attempts to explain his cautious tactics to them usually fall on deaf audio modules and elicit good-natured laughter, But then, Nosecone doesn't realize that his friends are just having a little fun at his expense: Autobots appreciate results, and when Nosecone finishes turning an enemy fortification into steel Swiss cheese, the results of his efforts are unmistakable... and the respect granted to him by his fellow Autobots is obvious.

Abilities: In vehicle mode, Nosecone's most distinctive feature is also his most formidable asset: his durabyllium-steel alloy drill can pierce almost any material, and it is virtually indestructible. He also packs two rocket-propelled missiles that use a videocom tracking system to lock on to targets. He's slow of speed, but his treads can carry him across any terrain and up the steepest slopes. In robot mode, he is armed with a high-powered X-ray laser pistol.

Weaknesses: Nosecone's slowness often lands him in the middle of trouble- namely, a Decepticon artillery barrage. And although his drill is impervious to most weapons fire, his treads aren't, so he often is left immobilized. He also has a tendency to overheat while drilling through very dense substances.

Overbite

Allegiance:
Decepticons
Function: Undersea Terminator
Alt. Mode: Amphibious Shark Creature
Weapons: Freeze beam blaster.
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: “There are only two kinds of creatures, predator and prey."

Speed: 5
Endurance: 7

Firepower: 6
Accuracy: 8
Melee: 8
Tech. Skill: 5
Charisma: 5
Rank: 6

Profile: A menacing, mechanical monster whose presence makes any body of water unsafe for swimming--or anything else--Overbite is just about the most dangerous creature ever to prowl the ocean depths. And perhaps he's the most obsessed, as well, for he sees his life as an endless quest for prey. As soon as he finishes off one victim, he goes hunting for another. But as much as he enjoys his work, he looks to occasionally take time off to amuse himself. For fun he chomps holes into the sides of oil tankers and sinks cruise ships. As Overbite likes to point out, "The only thing better than swimming through an oil slick is swimming through an oil slick full of drowning fleshlings."

Abilities: In shark mode, Overbite is virtually unbeatable in underwater combat. His attack is unrelenting. His teeth and talons can tear through the hull of a battleship. His liquid cooled, turbo-powered 3,500 horsepower engine propels him through the water at up to 70 knots. He never needs to surface, except for regular maintenance checkups. He carries a freeze beam blaster that can trap any underwater prey in a block of ice. He can transform to an amphibious weapons-base mode, in which he can create tidal waves by wagging his tail at super speed. His front end converts to a jawbreaker cannon, which shoots powerful metal-eating, salt-based corrosives.

Weaknesses: Although virtually unbeatable underwater in shark mode, Overbite is quite literally like a fish out of water in robot mode on land. There he is slow, awkward and relatively weak. Needless to say, he prefers to remain swimming.

For now, he would have a chat about his new disciple's less than impressive display of stealth.

“Umbra," Bludgeon remarked.

The black femme's head immediately jerked up to look Bludgeon in the optics, her faceshield now removed to reveal a fearful expression that had been partially concealed by it before. Bludgeon scowled. “Never show your fear, Umbra," Bludgeon chided critically, “Bare your blade at your adversaries. Never show them a moment's weakness."

“Yes, my lord..." Umbra muttered quietly in response, averting her optics slightly.

“Now as for the matter of your stealth abilities..." Bludgeon continued after he was sure the message had sunk in, “They are...less than impressive. Snaptrap apparently noticed your presence. You rely too heavily on your cloaking device. While such devices can be beneficial, they can become crutches as well. Never neglect the fundamentals."

Umbra said nothing but merely nodded her head in reply. Bludgeon considered the agent for a moment longer before turning his golden optics forward. They were nearing the amphitheater. Soon, very soon, he would be able to fully assess his disciple's skill as a master of diffusion. The prospect of such a battle...it set his optics aglow with anticipation.


This application is approved. Enjoy. You know where to pick up with him. :)

sumowrestler wrote:Name: Nosecone
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Assault Vehicle
Sub Group: Technobots
Alt. mode: Mining Drill
Weapons: X-Ray Laser Pistol, Videocom Tracking Rocket Propelled Missiles
Special Abilities: Nearly indestructible drill.
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: "Its not whose fastest; its who reaches the finish line first."

Strength: 7.0
Intelligence: 6.0
Dexterity: 5.0
Speed: 3.0
Endurance: 9.0
Courage: 8.0
Firepower: 7.0
Accuracy: 7.0
Melee: 7.0
Tech Skill: 7.0
Charisma: 6.0
Rank: 5.0

Profile: As a result of his very disciplined training in the dangerous but vital job of thermal-energy magma miner back on Cybertron, Nosecone has developed into a very careful warrior. He's slow and methodical in everything he does, weathering enemy artillery fire with the same calm that he exhibits when his fellow Autobots criticize him for his apparent laziness. His attempts to explain his cautious tactics to them usually fall on deaf audio modules and elicit good-natured laughter, But then, Nosecone doesn't realize that his friends are just having a little fun at his expense: Autobots appreciate results, and when Nosecone finishes turning an enemy fortification into steel Swiss cheese, the results of his efforts are unmistakable... and the respect granted to him by his fellow Autobots is obvious.

Abilities: In vehicle mode, Nosecone's most distinctive feature is also his most formidable asset: his durabyllium-steel alloy drill can pierce almost any material, and it is virtually indestructible. He also packs two rocket-propelled missiles that use a videocom tracking system to lock on to targets. He's slow of speed, but his treads can carry him across any terrain and up the steepest slopes. In robot mode, he is armed with a high-powered X-ray laser pistol.

Weaknesses: Nosecone's slowness often lands him in the middle of trouble- namely, a Decepticon artillery barrage. And although his drill is impervious to most weapons fire, his treads aren't, so he often is left immobilized. He also has a tendency to overheat while drilling through very dense substances.

Sample Post: (Will provide if needed.)


Approved. He's with the other Technos. You'll find him referenced in one of Scattershot's recent entries. Enjoy :)

Overbite

Allegiance:
Decepticons
Function: Undersea Terminator
Alt. Mode: Amphibious Shark Creature
Weapons: Freeze beam blaster.
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: “There are only two kinds of creatures, predator and prey."

Strength: 7
Intelligence: 7
Dexterity: 9 in water, 6 as robot, 2 in shark mode on land
Speed: 5
Endurance: 7
Courage: 7
Firepower: 6
Accuracy: 8
Melee: 8
Tech. Skill: 5
Charisma: 5
Rank: 6

Profile: A menacing, mechanical monster whose presence makes any body of water unsafe for swimming--or anything else--Overbite is just about the most dangerous creature ever to prowl the ocean depths. And perhaps he's the most obsessed, as well, for he sees his life as an endless quest for prey. As soon as he finishes off one victim, he goes hunting for another. But as much as he enjoys his work, he looks to occasionally take time off to amuse himself. For fun he chomps holes into the sides of oil tankers and sinks cruise ships. As Overbite likes to point out, "The only thing better than swimming through an oil slick is swimming through an oil slick full of drowning fleshlings."

Abilities: In shark mode, Overbite is virtually unbeatable in underwater combat. His attack is unrelenting. His teeth and talons can tear through the hull of a battleship. His liquid cooled, turbo-powered 3,500 horsepower engine propels him through the water at up to 70 knots. He never needs to surface, except for regular maintenance checkups. He carries a freeze beam blaster that can trap any underwater prey in a block of ice. He can transform to an amphibious weapons-base mode, in which he can create tidal waves by wagging his tail at super speed. His front end converts to a jawbreaker cannon, which shoots powerful metal-eating, salt-based corrosives.

Weaknesses: Although virtually unbeatable underwater in shark mode, Overbite is quite literally like a fish out of water in robot mode on land. There he is slow, awkward and relatively weak. Needless to say, he prefers to remain swimming.


Nope. He's fully available. Approved. Enjoy.

I can't recall when I saw Overbite last, but a simple search should get you up to speed.

Note: This has been updated and few bits have been re-worded since his last outing. The original is here, feel free to make a comparison and comment as you see fit, but all the changes are in really only in personality and wording as opposed to abilties etc.


Psychout

Allegiance: Decepticons
Function: Psychological Warfare Expert/Sniper, Headcase
Alt. mode: USB-style Datastick (Formerly a cassette)
Weapons: Depleted uranium sniper rifle. Cerebro-shell injection ‘syringe’. Limited-range twin pistols.
Special Abilities: Can interface with any form of technology in altmode. Extremely low fuel consumption (size based). Size alteration in Transformation (varying sizes of USB-style memory stick).
Height: 7’ / 2m
Quote: Your friends are my weapon.
STRENGTH: 3

DEXTERITY: 7
SPEED: 4
ENDURANCE: 5
COURAGE: 3
FIREPOWER: 4
ACCURACY: 8
MELEE: 4
TECH SKILL: 8
CHARISMA: 7
RANK: (Ask 'Sid, he’ll be my boss…)

Robot Mode Description: Outwards, a standard Decepticon Cassette, coloured black with yellow decals and eyes. Prefers to wear a battle plate covering the lower half of his face to hide his expressions, he will occasionally disguise himself with a cloak or robe when amongst a species more of his build.

History/Profile:
Externally, Psychout has never been one to take anything seriously. He works hard to put others at ease, his small stature making it easy for him to be seen as non-threatening, an advantage he used to avoid difficult assignments as often as possible. Decepticons who aren’t fully aware of his orders, and even some Autobots, tolerate his company and the more chaotic and less trustworthy on both sides used to actively seek him out when they needed information, as it was Psychout’s job to know everything, including where to get a good drink and Swindles comm-number.

He wasn’t always like that though. Back home, whilst the war was still in its infancy, Psychout was one of the keys to Megatron’s dominance of the non-combatant neutral regions. Using his controlling power to breed fear and terror of the Autobots into those who were not informed enough to resist the propaganda, the expert in paranoia could skilfully turn a peaceful safe-region into a chaotic and violent wasteland ripe for Decepticon picking.

After a run in with Starscream who, with a platoon of his troops ruined a decade of covert work through their inexcusable ineptitude, he exacted his revenge by controlling, and eventually causing the death of, a low ranked but well liked member of the Seeker army. As punishment his autonomy was stripped and he was reassigned and reformatted into a cassette and placed as an intelligence operative under a little known, and now deceased, communication officer. The death of his handler came as no shock to Psychout as it was he that sold him out to the authorities when he tried to double-cross their regional commander, in a bargain to regain his freedom. Eventually he was promoted to work for Soundwave but his abuse of his cerebro-shells on the dim-witted Frenzy and Rumble for entertainment led to his deactivation. He was brought back online after an extended period to assist and watch over a defecting Autobot scientist with whom he created a great working relationship doing unspeakable acts to unwilling ‘volunteers’, profiteering from the war and developing his taste for the finer things in life. His autonomy effectively restored, Psychout was well known for his legendary exploits when consuming refined energon and visiting the Cybertronian strip clubs and his playboy lifestyle in may have been in stark contrast to his partner’s all work and no play ethic but the technology they created, whilst not to everyone’s tastes, was so successful that they were just left to it undisturbed.

It was during this period that they both worked alongside Bombshell, helping him to develop the famous Cerebro-shells that the Insecticon is so well known for. Whilst the shells Bombshell uses now are his own, Psychout was able to copy the prototype schematics and puts a limited version to use, albeit usually for his own entertainment. He is yet to discover whether Bombshell is happy with his appropriation of these designs, but in his usual fashion, Psychout plans to deal with that problem when it comes. Unfortunately, a surprise attack on Darkmount in which the labs were destroyed deactivated them both, and they were left inactive for a very long time.

Recent History:
Re-actived and returned to Shockwaves service alongside a very old friend, Psychout again proved himself extremely useful and was rewarded with command of a mission to a disgustingly organic planet known as Earth, given his own crew and tasked with investigating the destroyed ruins of Megatron’s old base.
Unfortunately, things did not go according to plan and likely due to the frailties of his extremely small size, a normally-harmless radiation leak shut him down with no hint or warning. Securely incarcerated by his bodyguard ‘for his own safety’, it has become apparent since his re-activation that this radiation, combined with continued proximity to the depleted uranium shells he keeps as his specialist sniper rig ammo, has ‘damaged’ a subsection of his cerebral routines. It is unknown how permanent this damage may be, but now he has begin to refer to himself in the third person, and has developed a dark belief that deep within his unfathomably vast cassette-memory banks a hidden omnipotent presence now guides his hand. To what purpose he isn't yet sure, however he knows it probably cannot be good. (Although it may be fun...)

Abilities in Detail:
Altmode: can plug into any computer-based technology and seize control of the system and any external connections. He is not undetectable though, but the lower the technology of the system the less likely he is to be discovered. This also allows him to hack into any connected satellite systems once interfaced.
Low fuel consumption: Even taking his extreme size into account, he is able to last for an incredibly long time on a very small amount of power, and is extremely economical.
Cerebro-Shells: As per weapons specs below.

Weapons specs:
Sniper rifle: shoots high velocity depleted uranium rounds with incredible accuracy up to nearly 1 mile (1500m) which can 'poison' metallic systems as well as carbon-based organic matter. His cerebro-shells cannot be used with this rifle. Tio achieve full range and accuracy Psychout must interface directly with its targeting systems which he must do in altmode, leaving himself open to surprise attack when fully concentrating on aiming. Without interfacing range and accuracy are halved
Twin pistols: Standard ornate Cybertronain side-arms, not very effective but when used together can pack a half decent punch. Carried more for their appearance than function, may once have been quite valuable.
Cerebro Shells Injection Device: Requires close-range contact for delivery. The micro-circuited device travels through the sentient’s internal fluids until it reaches the brain, whereupon it opens up and releases tens of thousands of connecting wires. The wires coil around nearby neural dendrites until the brain's conscious functions are effectively rerouted through the cerebro-shell, which puts the mind of the victim under the remote control of Psychout. This control is limited however or obeying simple 2 or 3 word commands and it cannot make the target act outside of its usual nature (i.e. An Autobot like Bumblebee couldn't be controlled and forced to kill a human as that is against his nature, instead he would most likely break the control.)

Weaknesses: His altmode is a memory stick. He can alter his transformation to allow him to access any required port in any terminal imaginable, but once he is in his altmode he is unable to move without returning to robot mode.
When he is interfaced with his rifle, and can get so focused on long range combat that he is relatively easy to sneak up on and a sitting duck if caught.
Psychologically speaking, he wants nothing more than to return to his old playboy lifestyle back on Cybertron, and is furious that the planet has been destroyed blaming Starscream, and as a result he refuses to trust seekers.
His multiple personally issue has begun to get in the way of his rational thought processes. Whilst it may only be a slight issue for now, he is rationalising it away that he is being ‘possessed’, even though as a scientist/technician, he is aware this is nonsense. However he had always believed a purely-organic planet was impossible, so he refuses to discount any possibility any more.

Re-approved, laddie. Make a roll call entry and post this new version in the original Decepticons section and we'll take care of the previous version. Have fun and welcome back :)
