Profile: Perceptor's thirst for knowledge is unquenchable. He will seek it to the exclusion of all else. Perceptor's specific role in the Autobot cause is putting to good use his specialties in metallurgy, electrical engineering and other sciences closely related to Transformer physiology in order to help put an end to the war. Optimus Prime considers this research vital to the Autobots' cause. There was a time that Perceptor was not easily drawn into joining with other Autobots to do anything other than his work, but that has changed. While collecting samples on Corata-Vaz, Perceptor and the small group of security officers with him were attacked by a group of Decepticons. Perceptor was severely injured during the skirmish requiring him to spend an exorbitant amount of time in a CR chamber at the Kimia Facility.
After coming back online he went directly to his lab and began work on upgrading his body. The modifications performed included forearm stabilizers, a new breastplate made from adamant crystal and an enhanced optic equipped with a long range targeting visor. All of the enhancements, along with his dour demeanor, have made Perceptor into a focused indispensible sniper.
Abilities: Perceptor is extremely intelligent. His capacity for data storage is second only to Optimus Prime's. Although familiar with all the sciences, his specialties are metallurgy, molecular chemistry, and electrical engineering. He has two different capacities in microscope mode. He can magnify objects up to 10,000 times as an optical microscope and up to a million times as a scanning electron microscope. Using his magnifying lenses to concentrate and intensify its beam, he can convert his lens barrel into a powerful light cannon. It can blast a hole in a cinder block wall 2,000 miles away with pinpoint accuracy. He can use the cannon in robot mode or convert to a third form and use it as a stationary field artillery piece. Thanks to his enhancements Perceptor has become an expert marksman.
Weaknesses: Any problems with his magnifying lenses will bring his scientific research to a halt.
