Name: Rattlelatch Faction: Neutral; Autobot Sub-group: N/A Function: (Neutral) Burglar; (Autobot) Junior engineer, hacker Primary Weapon: Modified laser pistol Also armed with: micro-precision laser Alternate Mode: (Neutral) Generic four-wheeled vehicle; (Autobot) Alternator Volkeswagon Golf Motto: "I have the keys to all." Strength: 04 Intelligence: 08 Speed: 06 Endurance: 03 Rank: 01 Courage: 04 Firepower: 01 Skill: 10 Profile: This green minibot was a burglar who, with help from various other sticky-fingered friends, liberated assorted goods, weapons, and general tech from both factions and sold them to the opposite side, repairing things as need be to put them in sellable condition. Rattlelatch had done his best to avoid being drafted although it had its cost. At spark, he is a good mech and can be friendly. He did what he did simply to survive. When at last forced to join a faction, he became an Autobot. He left his former profession behind although he retained the knowledge and he will take on a hacking job if command orders it. He put his energy toward engineering work and incorporated his skills into it. Later, a severe circumstance on Earth led to his body being upgraded to an Alternator form. He has a set of fold-down lenses in his helmet that can analyze the physical amd chemical properties of any given structure; they were made for him specifically for assessing locks. He also has a micro precision laser built into his right forearm to assist in this work, as well as for engineering projects. It is usually withdrawn into the arm casement when not in use. Strengths: He has a genius for up-close, detailed work. He enjoys working on complex locks and encryptions. Weaknesses: He is an absolutely terrible shot at long range. His friends sometimes wonder why he even bothers to carry the pistol since it does him little good unless his opponent is two feet away -- and by then it would be too late for the shot to matter much. While not a coward, he can lose his confidence if a mission becomes too intense and too close to a battle. He's deathly afraid of being sent behind enemy lines to do his work and prefers to avoid it if he can help it.
