Straxus. God, even the G1 version leaks badassery. Hound: Young, loyal and trustworthy. He enjoys being on Earth; exploring its wonders and meeting new people. An idealist who wishes there could be peace between the Bots and the Cons. Respects life in all forms. Gears: The yang to Hound's yin. Grumpy, whiny, and hates having to deal with other people. Enlisted because he wasn't going anywhere as a maintenance-bot. Almost totally apathetic towards the lives of the native earthlings and is unreasonably selfish.
