Profile: With all the hyperbole of a motivational speaker and the energetic fury of a whirlwind, Hot Spot is all about action in both word and deed. He’s not satisfied unless he is at the center of activity; anything less and he doesn’t feel like he’s alive. Hot Spot is dedicated to operating at maximum efficiency for every moment that he’s functional. He is an instinctive and canny fighter and an inspirational leader who charismatically exhorts his troops to give 110% of their effort at all times. Unfortunately, few can keep up with his manic pace.

Abilities: Subject has above average intelligence and incredible strength. In vehicle mode he can travel at speeds up to 90 mph for a distance of 600 miles. In this mode he has a host of fire-fighting and rescue capabilities. His hose-line is designed to shoot any non-corrosive liquid, including water, for a distance of 1,200 feet. He can alter the position of his ladder to operate as a vehicle carrier if needed. In both modes he wields two fireball cannons that shoot 2,000 degree Fahrenheit blue fireballs a distance of 1.5 miles. His specially treated armor is invulnerable to temperatures up to 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit. His holomatter avatar is a young male firefighter decked out in full uniform and helmet.

Weaknesses: Aside from the doggedly determined Streetwise, few of Subject’s troops can live up to his tireless example and operating efficiency. His overly frequent use of his fireball cannons can cause them to backfire, spilling the flammable liquid that fuels them.

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.

Holomatter Avatar: A handsome man of about twenty-five attired in full helicopter pilot uniform, red and white dominating the colour scheme. He exhibits a fair complexion, sprightly blue eyes, and wavy, though tousled, dark brown hair. His hands are covered in strips of sports tape, suggesting the young man is involved in the sport of boxing or, perhaps, a form of martial art.

Weaknesses: Strong winds greatly interfere with Blades' flight in helicopter mode. Because of the punishment he puts his rotors through, they're prone to chips and fractures that require frequent maintenance.

Groove

Postby Wreck 'n Rule » Thu Jul 21, 2011 9:48 am

Motto: "I can totally prove that I'm not a zombie! Just lean over hear, and let me take a little nibble out of your brains."
Weapon: Double Barrelled Shell Launcher
Groove
Allegiance: Autobot
Sub-group: Protectobots
Function: Scout
Alt. mode: Honda Goldwing GL1200 Motorcycle
Weapons: Twin Vaporator Cannons, Photon Pistol
Height: 26 ft / 7.93 m
Quote: "War is a problem, never a solution."


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

Bio: Groove dreams of being a wanderer, roaming freely under the open skies of any world that strikes his fancy. Although he appreciates all the friends he makes, Groove doesn't settle down in any one spot too long because he wants to move on to the next exciting new experience that life has to offer. He's an easygoing, poetic robot who can find something happy about basically anywhere. Except where there's war. The battle between the Autobots and Decepticons has robbed Groove of his chance to travel freely because he's committed to being a part of the Protectobot team until the conflict is resolved, and it's forced him to endure the horrors of combat on an almost daily basis. For the tranquil pacifistic Groove, this is the worst thing he could ever have to witness, and he struggles with it constantly. He and his closest friend on the team, First Aid, have discussed at length the nature of war and what better options might be- to no avail. Groove hates violence, and he finds it hard to mesh his beliefs with his role as an Autobot. When he sees mechanoids like Blades reveling in the fury and chaos of war, Groove feels utterly alienated and alone, wondering what the point of it all it.

Holomatter Avatar: A young man in his early 20s wearing a full state highway patrol uniform with helmet. He has medium-length brown hair and a thin goattee.

Weapons/Abilities: Subject has great intelligence and he is an accomplished scout and infiltrator. As a motorcycle, he has incredible maneuverability and can travel and 140 mph for up to 800 miles. In both modes he has access to his two vaporator cannons; they shoot concentrated streams of corrosive, freezing or oxidizing liquids. Subject can target these with precision at particularly vulnerable areas, allowing him to disable foes without too much conflict. In robot mode he wields a photon pistol that can temperarily blind most Transformers.

Weaknesses: Subject is often reluctant to fight back when under attack, trying to reason with his opponent or otherwise find a nonviolent solution. This puts him in very dangerous situations on a regular basis.

First Aid

Postby Ember » Wed Feb 01, 2012 9:47 pm

Motto: "I'm not psycho...I just like psychotic things."
First Aid

Function: Doctor
Subgroup: Protectobots
Alt. mode: Hover Van/ Ambulance
Weapons: Photon Pistol, Dual-Barreled Decrystallizer Cannon
Height: 22ft / 6.7m
Quote: "An ounce of maintenance is worth a pound of cure."


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

Profile: First Aid hates seeing a machine in pain- even if the machine itself is unaware that it's hurting. He's been known to fix broken street lamps and administer water to overheated cars on his travels. This often delays him in performing his normal duties, but his fellow Protectobots rarely take him to task over it. He's simply too compassionate! He's also overly cautious- he'll restrict an Autobot to the repair bay for a mere faulty directional signal. Although his comrades sometimes take issue with First Aid's judgment in such cases, they know the quiet, hard-working doctor is only looking out for their best interests, and that is a comforting thought.

Abilities: In vehicle form, First Aid can travel at 140 mph with a range of 500 miles. He carries a dual-barreled decrystallizer cannon which disrupts the crystalline structure of most metals, reducing their tensile strength and making them vulnerable to fracture. In robot mode, he carries a photon pistol that shoots light-bursts with the equivalent brightness of 5000-watt light bulbs, enough to temporarily blind all but those whose optical sensors are the most heavily shielded. Each of his fists can emit a high- temperature, narrow laser beam, which he uses for welding during surgical procedures.

Weaknesses: Other than his aforementioned tendency to be distracted, First Aid occasionally suffers from electrical system breakdowns, particularly when he uses his decrystallizer cannon. This sometimes leaves him unable to perform simple functions, such as turning on his lights, or worse, leaves him completely immobilized.

Streetwise

Postby Foximus » Sat Mar 10, 2012 3:05 pm

Motto: "Broken Autobots never mend."
Weapon: Magnetic Repellor-Attractor
Streetwise

Allegiance: Autobot
Sub-group: Protectobots
Function: Interceptor
Alternate Modes: Police modified Nissan 300ZX
Weapons: Photon Pistol, Trunk-mounted Double-barreled Air Compressor Cannon
Height: 23ft/7.015m
Quote: “You have to know where you are before you know what to do."


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


Profile:

Streetwise notices the things that others let slip by them and, more importantly, he remembers them. From maps to road signs to colloquial expressions, Streetwise notes everything he sees or hears for future reference. Thus he can drive through a city with intimate knowledge of its twists and turns after only a glance at a map and understand with ease what the locals are saying. During the Protectobots’ emergency rescue operations, Streetwise is often dispatched to track whatever Decepticon was responsible for the mess while the others focus on cleanup. His amazing eye for detail and adaptability make him an excellent and determined tracker, and his clever streak helps him stay a step ahead of what his prey is thinking. Invariably, when the Protectobots have regrouped to tackle the threat, Streetwise leads them right to their target.

Streetwise’s human avatar is an above average height male. He wears a standard police officer uniform, which changes slightly to fit wherever he happens to be at the moment. He has short, cropped black hair with a bit of five o’clock shadow. The avatar also has warm brown eyes. The facsimile almost looks like something out of a loose cannon cop action movie, which happens to be where Streetwise had drawn his inspiration from. Streetwise has named his avatar Hank Steel.

Abilities:

Subject has great intelligence, and he’s one of the most notable trackers of the Transformers. He’s equipped with receptors that can tap into computer systems and download available electronic information from local resources, allowing him to obtain maps, historical information, and other data for use while on the hunt. His ability to adapt and mesh with cultures is second only to Jazz.

In vehicle mode, he can travel at 180 mph for up to 400 miles at a time. Subject can deploy a trunk-mounted double-barreled air compressor cannon that has enough power to knock an airborne Decepticon out of the sky at a distance of 50 miles. He carries a photon pistol that can be set to fire destructive light beams or bright flashes that can disable optic sensors. He joins with the Protectobots to form Defensor.

Weaknesses:

Subject often ignores the need to refuel when deeply involved in a tracking mission, which can lead him to run out of power in the middle of the hunt. The ceaseless way he pushes himself while hunting his targets can cause him to overheat.
