Profile: Slag first met Grimlock in a brig on Cybertron, after he’d shot his commanding officer in the back to convince him they were outflanked and had to make a frontal assault. Grimlock thought this made him a clear-thinking mech, and the two of them discussed forming their own semi-autonomous strike team, one that Slag declared would follow no rules. With the Dinobots, Slag’s contribution to the grand Autobot cause of freedom for all was to murder Decepticons who surrendered and play “kick the can” with severed heads. He constantly tried to deny they were a team at all, saying they put the “un” into “unit."
Slag is disruptive and foul-tempered even compared to his comrades in the Dinobots. Anarchic, he rejects any orders that don’t come from Grimlock. Slag is always angry, and only violence seems to release his pent-up energies. Bringing a Decepticon to a grisly end is one of the few things that can lift his spirits. If he has no enemies to smash, Slag wanders off to punch holes in the sides of mountains or even fellow Autobots whom he finds irritating. Concerned Autobots who inquire bout Slag’s well-being become victims of his fiery breath, or worse. Only his fellow Dinobots seem exempt form his perpetual rage, and even they aren’t sure what causes it. Other comrades have wondered as well, questioning why Slag fights for the Autobots at all. Slag’s answer is not forthcoming.
Abilities: Slag possesses incredible physical strength and is capable of shattering an entire reinforced concrete building with a wave of his hand or nudge of his head in dinosaur mode, his primary weaponis a 3,000* Centigrade flamethrower located in his mouth; its effective range is 50 feet. In robot mode, he wields an energo-sword and an electron gun that fires particle bursts that can tear through most Transformer armor.
Weaknesses: Slag is not very intelligent or fast, and his abusive attitude limits the number of Autobots who are willing to help him in combat situations.
