The Origin of Your Tech Specs and Faction

Postby Henry921 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 6:05 am

Motto: "All I have to be is exceptional."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Simple enough: why are you as strong or as smart as your profile lists you to be? Why did you choose to ally with one faction of Cybertronians over another?

I don't speak for anyone else, but I'll guess it was very common to base your stats on how you perceive yourself. Initially all my numbers were too high, so I reined it back a bit and admitted, yeah, I'm not very fast. ;) The notion of strength and intellect and endurance I all feel accurately reflect me. I wanted to have a decent pool of stats, so I gave myself a decent rank. Given my tendency to run off half cocked into certain danger without much foresight, I figured, yeah, I can have a decent Courage score. As I don't particularly care for firearms, I decided I didn't need much in my Firepower stat, and as for rank, that's entirely ego. I'd hate to be lower than a squad commander.


My faction I actually agonized on quite a bit, as I couldn't really decide what kind of Decepticon I wanted to be. I knew I would be a Decepticon from the very beginning, but where would my overpowered self insertion character fit into the canon and the timeline? Was I there from the Ark landing on Earth? Keeping Blaster down on Cybertron?

I chose G2 because the decimated Decepticon ranks made it a little easier to stand out. Being as narrative-minded as any other fan fiction author, I constructed a lengthy backstory to explain all this, and used the stats I'd filled out to come up with my bio:

Decepticon Nightweaver
Nightweaver insists he is the sole surviving fragment of a human personality, imbedded into Decepticon programming. He cast out his standard issue firearm for battle blades, claiming a sudden distaste for the "ease" of a gun. His reckless charges into battle have led Decepticon Leader Bludgeon to take notice of him, and led to Nightweaver's promotion to squad commander. The Decepticons under his command are wary of following him into battle, as Nightweaver's idea of "strategy" consists entirely of rushing headlong into battle, no matter the odds, hoping to overcome the Autobots with sheer moxie.


In retrospect, not very G2-ish. I should mention how awesomely "metal" his blades are and how very stealthy his cybertronian jet mode is.

Thus, my allegiance to the Decepticons, where anyone can become leader, and I'll get there by a combination of a battle blade to the back of Bludgeon's head and sheer moxie!

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
Mine are pretty much random, though some pretty much have a story behind them:

Faction: Mini-Cons are considered a third neutral faction, which is the side I choose in an argument most of the time, a golden middle road. :lol: If there is none, I'd much rather leave the argument completely.

Intelligence: Giving myself a perfect 10 would be me pulling a Sheldon. I do know a lot of things, but... I lack the Skill to actually use the knowledge.

Rank: So I have an inferiority complex, big deal. [-( Nah, I'm much more comfortable without any people below me, I'm not commander material (though some may beg to differ).

"If you try to please everyone, nobody will like it" - a very wise guy.

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

And why should we settle for less?

Conquest of Cybertron the galaxy is the only true path! It is our destiny to conquer... and rule.

Motto: "BRING ME DANGER!"
As a Quintesson, I feel it's my job to hover in te background and wiggle my tentacles in anticipation of board members flushing each other.

Perhaps I should steal the toilet paper and let the two parties blame each other?

Blot oozes many substances that can't be identified and leaves an odor on a bunch of other robots. Robots who theoretically shouldn't retain much smell when out in the void of space.

He's a three flusher at minimum.

Due to his weight, not his ability to float, I'm sure.

Weapon: Fusion Cannon
I'm a Decepticon because Soundwave and Shockwave are some of my favorite Transformers. Plus the Autobots wouldn't allow a fusion cannon-carrying mad man into their ranks.

Easiest way to descibe myself would be Animated's Blitzwing's Random persona...Minus being able to change back to Icy or Hot-headed...

PLUS I LOVE TO SEE THE AUTOBOTS BLOWN TO ITSY-BITSY PIECES OF SCRAP METAL!!!
I am not a GEEWUNNER...I just really like homeages
