Based on the Animated Red-alert red-alert was actually a con in the great wars once known as the assasin ninja Nightbird. She converted to an autobot after she and starscream had duel and she lost. the autobots found her dying and rebuilt her. Her left hand was completely demolished in the fight and they replaced it with a surgical saw.(a compatible hand is on order but will take 6 to 9 megacycles for processing) she serves as a field medic...a very deadly field medic. she retains her devilish attitude which make some bots afraid when she repairing them as she like to play crude jokes during repair. you'll most likely see her talking with ratchet(fellow digruntled field medic) or fighting with Prowl(literally fighting they hate each other). her weapons are basic ninja tools and medical saw.
