Bios

Sorry if there's already a thread on this but I was wondering how many of you write bios for your characters. I just did my first one (based on my red KO legends leobreaker). needs some polishing but here it is if you're interested.

Lionhide's Bio
During the Decepticon assault on Autobot City in 2005, veteran Autobot Ironhide's remains fell from the fragmenting shuttle, coming to rest in a North American mountain range. Upon the release of the power of the Matrix the shattered body was infused with a 'feral spark' and slowly began to self-repair, incorporating minerals from the surrounding rock to replace the parts destroyed by Megatron. Reformatted with an alt-mode suited to the rugged mountain environment, Lionhide survived alone for several years, struggling to come to terms with a disparate personality. Though retaining certain elements of Ironhide's character and memories, Lionhide is prone to 'feral spark-attacks', essentially blackouts when the untamed animal within takes control. During these attacks he is a wild berzerker, far more dangerous to himself than others. Lionhide is driven by an insane, savage fury to hunt down and brutalize Megatron and is an extremely effective warrior on the rare occasions when he can retain focus. Unfortunately, he is completely at the mercy of his frequent 'episodes', his only saving grace being his complete unawareness of events when the savage mania has him in it's grip. Often comes around in the CR chamber totally bewildered and utterly unapproachable until he has calmed down.

I ask because I've looked at quite a few characters and not found a bio yet, if this topic already exists feel free to delete.
cheers.

Edited for spelling (a-flipping-gain).

Fair enough, I don't see much point in it but it turned out to be fun.

I gave the members of my team each their own bios. They're nothing long or extremely detailed, but it's fun to give the characters a little background and personality.

Very cool my Lord! A little bit of background adds some depth and a lot of enjoyment, nice one.

I take great pride in my character's bios and backgrounds. There's a brief rundown on my team page, then all of the original characters have their own bios (Beastbox and Squalktalk just use their tech spec bios). My favourites are Jesus Prime, The King In Yellow, Error Threshold, Konzentrationslager and Saint Vitus.

Also, Redimus has a character which I created, still uses my old bio for her - Bitchkrieg.

Hehe, thanks. Stay tuned, cause when (if!?) OS gets back, there might be more to read.

I don't drink though.

Not a fan of almost anything related to alcohol either.

I know the feeling...

I'm trying to write them now, but I'm not doing too well. Then again, if I stop changing my team name and members everyday, then maybe I might be able to write something!!

Curse me and my changing ways!

We used to have a pimping thread for bios, but I think that got lost.

Anyway, I've taken some lengths to create bios for all my robots. It's been a while since I've updated them, but they've all got descriptions and different personalities. I'm a comedy writer, so my team's there purely for comedic value.

The team bio is here, and from there you can find the members. If you want to see some other material for them--and the old members--check out the team homesite.

What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

After seeing the alt list for v2 I just had to do this before someone else did. I wonder how many people will get the reference.

I've found the only way I can get that to happen is by being really really sleep deprived.
And Ban'd, but I don't recomend that part :P
The opinions expressed in this post are well-reasoned and insightful.
Needless to say, they are not those of SEIBERTRON.COM, its staff members, or any other site lackeys.
Anyone who says otherwise is itching for a fight.

Two of my characters don't have bios. Mostly because I can't think of one for them, but the rest are AOK. http://seibertron.com/heavymetalwar/tea ... p?id=25436

I have bios for all the members of the Eisen Dragoons, plus a few I've created that I don't play or I did and eventually "retired." I occassionally re-write them when I have a "better idea" for them - [urlhttp://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar/character.php?character_id=54235]Northclaw's[/url] the lastest victim under consideration. I've also created or reworked bios for others, including Redimus and Pulsar's namesakes and Dynamax's Dynabreaker.

Redid the bio for Jesus Prime, new origin for the character which explains his preference towards characters coming from Vos.
