Info about Arcee in the Transformers cartoons or movies.
Arcee is one of the best fighters that the Autobots have. A no-nonsense fighter, she is the kind of character who does not take any flak from anyone on the battlefield. She has an athletic fighting style and is a master of close combat with her blades.
Arcee is also notable for her interactions with the other Autobots. She views Bulkhead as something of a klutz, has a deep respect for Optimus Prime, and had a special connection with Cliffjumper - which according to the prequel comics was born of their shared experiences in reaching Earth. Although she was the least enamored with the idea of taking on a human partner, she has taken to her partner Jack Darby, and their relationship can best be described as a little brother - big sister relationship. While Arcee generally works by the rules, she's willing to occasionally bend them - "just this once" - when absolutely necessary. Or when some jerk insults her pride. While she prefers to stick to the rules, she'll do what she can to help Jack lead a happy life, such as a rare rule bending to let him give Sierra a ride on her.
Just don't insult her. Arcee is a proud Autobot and doesn't like being insulted by people like Vince, the bully at Jack's school. She also considers her bike's technical specifications - dual carbs and can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds - to be her vital stats and her own business.
Arcee sees herself eventually dying in battle, as evidenced by her coming to terms with her possible deactivation in Scrapheap.
Like Bulkhead, Arcee is also haunted by events from her past - which come to a head in Predatory. Long ago on Cybertron, Arcee was captured following a mission by the Decepticon Airachnid, who had also captured Arcee's then partner Tailgate. Airachnid tried to torture some information out of Arcee, but Arcee proved too tough to torture. So Airachnid murdered Tailgate instead. This revealed why Arcee has always until this point in the series kept Jack at arm's length - she lost at least two partners, Tailgate and Cliffjumper, to the Decepticons, and did not want Jack to suffer the same fate. With Jack's help, Arcee was able to face her demons and defeat Airachnid, although Airachnid escaped.
Additional Arcee Resources
The bio for Arcee released on the Hub reads as follows:
This is one awesome motorcycle -- sleek, fast, and powerful. Arcee is also the Autobots' best soldier. She has a special bond with Optimus Prime and is his "go-to" girl. As the least "flawed" of the Autobots, she's the one they can always count on. She wasn't too thrilled to get the job of looking after Jack, but she slowly comes to respect him as a partner.
The first edition toy itself does not have a bio printed on the package.
