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.
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.
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.
