Hey, guys. I've been working on this guy off and on for a bit, so I finished him up today. I've been wanting to create my own character for a while, but it's been years, so please have mercy on my bio, LOL. ***Note: Lockjaw is responsible for the mangling of the female minibot named Burnout, whose remains were later reformatted into a standardized Transformer by a robot called the Tumbler. (see Burnout; Tumbler)*** C and C welcome as always - GWX Name: Lockjaw Faction: Decepticon Function: Infiltrator Primary Weapon: Vulcsaber Alternate Mode: Cybertronian Pithound Motto: “Who needs energon with Autobots lying around?” Strength: 8 Intelligence: 5 Speed: 5 Endurance: 4 Rank: 3 Courage: 9 Firepower: 2 Skill: 8 Profile: Up close and personal. That’s the way Lockjaw likes it. It wasn’t that long ago when Pithounds were greatly feared across Cybertron. Tactically designated for infiltration by Shockwave shortly after Megatron’s disappearance, Pithounds were very fuel efficient and could survive long bouts without recharging by feeding on slaughtered Autobots’ spark cores. Fearless and excellent at short range tracking, Pithounds were dropped into suspected Autobot areas where they entered and quickly assassinated their targets, often unbeknownst to their prey until just megaseconds before their vulcsabers pierced shell. Fond of the easily digestible hides of fembots, Pithounds were responsible for the near extinction of the female transformers. Abilities: Only moderately versed in hand to hand combat, Lockjaw is very proficient in the use of his vulcsaber, which, when heated to precision, can pierce even the most highly reinforced metals. In his alternate mode, Lockjaw’s muzzle is powered by intense hydraulics making it nearly impossible for anyone to break from its grip. It can exert a force of 90,000 psi, snapping a steel cable 3 feet in diameter. His nose is equipped with highly sensitive olfactory and infrared tracking arrays, able to sense polarized energon particles up to 2 miles away for up to 36 hours after particle discharge. An experimental fusion compiler in Lockjaw’s stomach can transduce unfiltered cyberplasm from an Autobot spark chamber into synthetic energon. This allows a pithound to survive long bouts of time without a recharge when on assignment by Shockwave. Weaknesses: While extremely powerful in Pithound mode, Lockjaw suffers from bouts of fatigue and is not very fast over long distances. He is trained in stealth tactics, but if discovered, can be easily damaged by your standard plasma rifle. His compact alt mode prevents the transport of any weapons outside of his vulcsaber. Lockjaw is often reprimanded by Shockwave for speaking disrespectfully to higher ranking Decepticon officers, but his demeanor can be attributed to his lack of fear rather than a personal act of defiance.
