As a high ranking general in Galvatron’s army (See Transformers Animated Season 5 ) , Sandstorm provides leadership to a small team of Decepticons suited for guerilla tactics and planets with hostile environments (The Preds). Her alt mode is one of a desert spider, but witnesses report a third flight mode, but this remains unconfirmed. In robot mode, Sandstorm uses twin web bombs to ensnare enemies to slowly drain them of their energy. At times, she tests Galvatron’s patience by going off on her own and ignoring his status request texts, but in the end, her results speak for themselves. Her ambition pays off, and in a short time is 3rd in command of the Decepticons, subordinate only to Starscream,& Galvatron himself. However, behind a façade of loyalty, she works behind the scenes, building secret alliances to create an insurgency to overthrow Galvatron’s regime and take control of the government. But is there more to Sandstorm than meets the eye?
