She's seductive. She's sadistic. She's a predatory hunter. She's Prime's Blackarachnia. Let's discuss Airachnid. She has a sick hobby of collecting alien 'trophies', echoing TFA Lockdown's collecting of parts from others as trophies. But she goes after the heads of organic creatures rather than technological modifications from Cybertronians. Jack's probably burnt her entire collection down with her ship now though. She's wiped out alien species (meaning she's probably killed more lifeforms than any other Decepticon!). She's tortured and killed Autobots during the war on Cybertron. Her touch literally burns (acid!). She likes to work solo. Arcee hates her with a vengeance. So what other details can we gleam about her from some of her dialogue in "Predatory": "You're still holding a grudge? The war's been over for mega-cycles." - Apparently the crimes she commited against others in the past are pretty insignificant to her. She lacks remorse and empathy for the suffering of others. Classic psychological trait of psychopathic murderers. Cold-blooded killer basically. "These days I travel solo. In pursuit of my new hobby." - She's a Decepticon by allegiance, but prefers to work alone. She almost falls into the free agent category. She doesn't seem to care too much about Decepticon goals and ambitions in general, but she does share their desire in making Autobots suffer. Get the feeling that she only works with the Decepticons because they're more in-line with her interests, but she probably doesn't like or trust other Decepticons very much. "I collect endangered species. Of course they aren't really endangered...until they meet me." - Not only does she have a twisted hunting hobby, she's a mass murderer too. But how does she wipe out entire alien species? I'm betting that "Decepticon plague" mentioned for the next ep. "Sick Mind" may have something to do with it... "At some point, you really have to ask yourself, Arcee, is it them? Or is it me?" - She loves playing mind games with her victims. "And that's why I now prefer to work alone. It's so sad when bad things happen to those close to you." - She considers having partners a weakness. Could she be speaking from personal experience? Or was she just preying on Arcee's fears? "But don't get me wrong. I fully intend to snuff out your spark. And believe me, I will make it hurt. But that won't compare to the pain you'll feel knowing I'm adding your human to my collection." - She derives pleasure in torturing victims mentally as well as physically. It's like she feeds off pain in all its forms. Maybe she enjoys inflicting pain on others after having pain inflicted upon her in the past? "That's the spirit, Jack. Play hard to get." - She enjoyes the thrill of the hunt. Maybe she just likes her prey to suffer for longer. "You're making this too easy, Jack. And I do not enjoy being bored." - She does not appreciate an easy kill. Regarding her unique spider design, there's been no mention of how she may have obtained it. Now it may be that her design is just an unusual but natural Cybertronian one. She doesn't appear to have obvious organic elements in her as TFA BA did (except maybe for the acid and webbing she can produce). Or maybe there's an unnatural explanation behind the arachnid-style design. Maybe she was self-modified after studying alien species of spiders? Or maybe she was involved in "those 'Con experiments during the war" as mentioned by Arcee in the "Darkness Rising" eps.? The purple glow coming from her internally in her eyes and around her body could give credibility to the latter theory if it's evidence of dark energon in her. Plus, how many modes does she have? The theories about a helicopter alt mode might be right looking at the 'rotor' on her back. Does she have a 'full' spider mode too (including a spider's head)? And what's her drill mode look like? Never did get a good look at it. Any other thoughts or predictions regarding Airachnid? Share them here!
