As the leader of an elite group of AUTOBOT warriors known as the Aerialbots, SILVERBOLT shoulders a great deal of responsibility. He is a careful planner who never risks the lives of any of his men, unless it is absolutely necessary. All his care, however, hides a deeply insecure nature. OPTIMUS PRIME actually put SILVERBOLT in such a stressful position largely to distract him from his paralyzing fear of heights; a weakness he hopes the other Aerialbots never discover. He is a capable leader nonetheless, and has honed the Aerialbots into one of the finest AUTOBOT units in the universe.
