Abilities/Weapons: S-1 is a ma$$ive war machine capable of crushing buildings inb its overized claws. Conceived initially as a contruction robot mode the Zentradi top designers quickly turned it towards a more brutal close combat intention. In jet mode S-1 is fitted with twin laser cannons that can lay down a wihteirng hail of fire whilst still causing moderate damage. In robot mode these are mounted on his shoulders and can still be used at range. Giant Claws = 2pts Med laser cannon x2 = 4pts
Weaknesses: S-1 is slow in robot form. The Zentradi scientists have struggled to adapt the Cybertronian technology so that it is as heavily armoured as S-1 and agile at the same time.
Appearance: G1 Scorponok in robot mode, Energon Scorponok in jet mode. (pic to come)
Name: Unknown aka: Agent Zarak Sex: Male Age: Not specified but looks early 30s Height 5'10 Family: Mother (deceased), father (deceased), brother (deceased) Habits: n/a Faction/proffesion: Russian Agent Motto: "The Iron Fist has been replaced with the Iron Claw!" Function: Battle a$$ault
Profile/History: Zarak was orphaned as a young boy when his family were accidently killed in a riot by protestors during the dissolving of the Soviet Union. After spending much of his young like in a run down orphanage he was selected to become part of the HomeLand Program run by a shadow agency of the Russian Secret Service. Trained as a killing machine he worked for many yuears eliminating top targets in majny countries before 'dissapearing off the map'. Recently it has been reported that he has allied himself with Zentradi forces, the reasons are still unknown.
Abilities/Weapons: Zarak is a trained killer. Aside from being a brutally efficient fighter and excellent handler of many firearms he has a good level of knowledge of computer systems, hacking, foreign policies and diplomacy, other operations such as CIA and MI6. He always carries a knife and a hand gun.
Weaknesses: No obvious physical weakness but does posses a strange personal sense of honour that he has created to jusitfy his line of work. This can be used against him. Reaslistically he prefers work out of the S-1 suit but realises its uses in battle.
History: Once hover generators were finally feasible, it began to be experimented on large scales, namely on Transformer models. After extensive research and manufacture the Balrog version 120 was successful in being a fully mobile and fast hover vehicle that was more effective on ground than the usual mechs. It’s creator Dr Harold Parker originally planned it to be used as a scouting mech, but the he plans were over ruled and weaponry was added to make it a more formidable killing machine.
Abilities/Weapons: On the Balrogs’ arms are medium laser canon attachments, the standard that was is used mainly to cause distractions or simply knock out enemy Autobots, along with a Medium Missile Launcher which the was added for more combat purposes. The only weapon Dr Parker chose for the Balrog was an Ion cannon which he intended to use to knock out satellites and radars, to let the other stronger mechs move in.
Weaknesses: Despite modifications of its original schematic, the Balrog still never reached superb fighting strength or battle endurance, which means it has to retreat more often than not should full on combat resume.
Name: Nick Burns Sex: Male Age: 22 Height: 5”10 Family?: None Known to Still be Alive Habits: Tends to be very tactless Faction/Profession: Airforce Motto: “I’m just a blur, but I’m the one dealing out the pain.”
Profile/History: Enrolling in the army at first as a means to make money in a world where the economy was never high and being an orphan on his own, it seemed an easy solution. Though when the project was named the army ranks began to thin out and many dropped out due to hatred of the Transformers. Nick was approached by a man supposedly working against the military project, and since he had been renowned for his extreme reflexes and piloting fast air craft, he seemed the perfect man for the job, to pilot the Balrog. He had no real feelings towards the Transformers, or their war, but the amount he would be paid to fight them swayed his decision.
Abilities/Weapons: Sleeping with a Walter PPK underneath his pillow, Nick has extremely fast reflexes, mainly due to his belief of never being truly safe, as his parents were supposedly murdered. He has basic military training, and a few years of martial arts, but he is more effective with a weapon.
Weaknesses: Nick is fast on his feet, but not desperately strong, or determined in anyway. He does not have a strong belief in the mission coming first, and is more likely to pull out should things get too hot.
Abilities/Weapons: SkyFire can reach very high speeds in Jet Mode with medium misslie launchers under both wings that can be mounted underneath the bottom of the arms in robot mode and. a$$ault mode. Also when in a$$ault mode to thrusters can be maneouvered by the flick of a switch to mount over the top of the chasis fo extra speed and hover mode over land. When running this greatly increses speed also. In both bot mode and a$$ault mode he carries a good deal of strength and a heavy blaster to reinforce that. The Thrusters from a$$ault mode supply a limited fling time in robot mode and the antennas on his head act a very could radar/detection funtion within 500m.
Appearance: Similiar to G1 Skyfire/jetfire
Name: Marc Platt Sex: Male Age: 35 Height 5'9 Family: Just parents, no siblings.. Habits: n/a Faction/proffesion: Reporter Motto: "Maybe you seem too damned sincere"
Profile/History: Not a natural leader, Marc has spent his life on the line as a journalist, never missing a trick. He is often sarcastic and use humour as a defence or come back wiith a sharp tongue of his that he has.
Born and raised in Sacramento he came from a good family and has been well educated to get into his position as field journalist, eventually becoming a full news reporter.
He hasn't had any formal training in military of fighting so it's all pretty much new for him.
Weaknesses: Forced into leadership, he doesn't always have the natural leadership ideals.
Abilities/Weapons: The Gravion series was commisioned by a mysterious billionaire called Sandman who wanted to develop a new defense system to save the earth from itself and its waring factions all over.
The Gavion Fighter has the ability to transform from a ship to a humanoid looking form. This Process was meant to Increase the fighter's manuverabilty by having a pilot flying the ship mode and when it transformed to the Humanoid form, having the same pilot interface with the system, allowing any movement caused by the pilot to do the same movement by the Mecha.
The Series was meant to have a lasting effect on the battlefield, saving time and lives by executing manuovers quick and easy.
But alas this was not meant to be as the series was dicomisioned after all the ones that were created were having feedback problems with the transformation sequence or with the interfacing system.
Sandman went into ruin and let only working model be given to individual. This Indvidual was Will Turner.
The Gravion is lightly armoured on the sides of its forearms and upper thighs. It has Jets at the bottom of each foot, and has a gravatational system that allows it to stay mid-air.
The head section is where the Pilot controls the Mecha, It is ejectable if a need arrises. It also can be used for space capabilties.
Medium Blaster: (Firepower 4-6) 2pts Ion blast Power Up: 1pt Sword: (Firepower = 4-6) 2pts Claws (Firepower = 1-3) Free
Weaknesses: The arn't any apparent weaknesses to the Fighter except for the fact the Will Likes to go hard at it and pushes the Gravion to extremes.
Name: Will Turner Sex: Male Age: 21 Height 5'9 Family: Little Sister Habits: Working Out, Playing Games, Listening to Music Faction/proffesion: Air force/Air fighter Pilot Motto: "Watch out cause i'm comming through!" Function: Aerial A$$ault
Profile/History: Will Turner has worked hard to be were he is at this moment in time. He has had to bring up his sister since they were little and lost there parents at a young age.
His Luck changed when joined the Militairy and became a Pilot. On a day he was given leave he happened to take his sister out for the day when they were met by a man who had been almost beaten to a pulp.
The two helped him and he revealed himself to be the Mysterious ex-billionaire Sandman. Out of a gift for his act of Kindness Sandman gave him the wherabouts of the only working model of the Gravion Mecha.
Ever since then he has become a fierce fighter in the Gravion and his luck has been for the better.
Abilities/Weapons: Will carries two twin PP7 Handguns. Ther carry 7 Shots each. After that He has mainly his Skill he was trained in the militairy.
Weaknesses: Will do anything to help his sister. He also plays his music while piloting his Mecha. He uses the music in the field of battle as he it helps him fight to the music, and he believes executes manouvers quicker.
Appearance: He stands at 5 foot 9 and has a well built pyshique. He gets comments about his appearance while off duty which is usually casual clothes, unlike to what he wears when on duty.
Abilities/Weapons: Petbe is a custom suit, that Raven has been adding to for years. It is hard to tell what the original frame is, as it is very customised, although it is thought to be a relatively early Earth Military model.
Petbe’s alt mode is a glider, which is only really useful in combat or stealth missions. This mode can glide for a long distance, using very little electronic power for jets, and tracking systems etc. Because of this it is harder than normal for targeting systems to lock onto, and thus is harder to hit. It is also silent in this mode, and so very apt for stealth missions.
The armour on the suit varies. Although it posses a shield, this in itself is relatively weak, as are the wings on the back. The armour on the front of the mech is much stronger, however.
The systems in the unit are well maintained by Raven, and so are not very prone to malfunctioning during battle. They are also very efficient, and although not the same as the top of the line systems, perform just as well.
Petbe is space worthy, although it cannot use its glider mode in space. There is room for one other person in the cockpit.
The ejection system for Petbe involves firing off the whole head, which increases the toughness of the ejection capsule, but reduces its speed.
The weapons of Petbe can easily be switched between, both being locked onto the same arm, which means that they can be switched between in a matter of seconds. This does also mean they can’t be used at the same time. Petbe is therefore useful at both close and long range, and the quick switch between means he is an awesome shock trooper.
Semi-Automatic: Rapid fire weapon. 3 pts (Firepower = 4-6) Scythe: Very sharp weapon. 3 pt (Firepower = 7-10)
Weaknesses: Although well maintained, all the custom parts give a boosted general performance, but when winding down after battles are prone to malfunction (think Millennium Falcon). Also almost impossible for anyone but Raven himself to fix, due to all the custom parts.
Little is know of Ravens past. He has only recently joined the Zentradi.
All is know is that his family was killed a long time ago, when he was young. He has sinced survived on his own, and been in numerous shady military organisations. It seems he as picked up a lot and a huge variety of military skills.
His power suit is named after the Egyptian God of Revenge, as he sees himself as an avenging being, and also has a keen interest in Egyptian mythology. Often, he uses his glider mode before entering battle, so that the sudden screech war cry he lets out has even more of an effect after his silent approach.
Not even knowing his true name, he is gruff and to the point. He wants revenge, it is not known what for, some speculate even he does not know. In battle he his harsh and ruthless, even to his team mates, if he thinks them a liability he will leave them.
Abilities/Weapons: He carries a well kept pistol, a Walther P99, which has a magazine of 16 rounds. He also carries with him a rusty, bloodstained cross, which he keeps on a necklace around his neck.
Weaknesses: Harshness to team mates, sometimes suffers a flood of emotions in battle. Can become fixated or obsessed with things, eg: a particularly tough enemy in battle.
Appearance: Short, dark hair. Facial tattoos on one cheek. Muscular build, normally wears dark navy jump suit.
History: See below for Scott Cutter, The SkyTrix was built from spare parts from other Veritechs hence the multiple colours.
Abilities/Weapons: The VF-1 was the Robotech Design Team's solution to the question of how humans could fight 40 foot tall soldiers in hand to hand combat.
The Veritech Fighter had the unique ability to transform from a jet fighter into a humanoid form, known as a battloid. Processing maneuverability and funcionality. It could race over a ground target at high speeds, strafing with missiles and machine guns, then convert to a ground unit and mop up, secure the area, etc.
It also has a third mode, Guardian. A transitional phase between Fighter and Battloid, used for VTOL landings and rapid deceleration. As well its mode is very useful in combat, allowing instant changes of direction, height and speed. And with the GU-11 gun point in the jet's hand, they could even fly in one direction, and shoot in another.
VF-1J or J-Cla$$ carries light armor on the side of the lower legs and forearms. On its back it carries two large engines
The VF-1J carries a 55mm triple barrel gattling cannon in a gun pod which can be used as a rifle in battloid or guardian mode and attaches to the underside of the jet in fighter mode.
The Valkyrie can be used in space.
Powerful blaster rifle. 3 pts (Firepower = 7-10) Small Missile Launcher: Fires 8 small missile. 2pt (Firepower = 1-3)
Weaknesses: The suits only real weakness is the pilot’s lack of experience
Appearance: Robotech Valkyrie Fighter
Name: Scott Cutter Sex: Male Age: 27 Height 5'10 Family: Large Habits: Treating everything as a game, knife throwing Faction/proffesion: Circus Performer Motto: "Awww c’mon and play!" Function: Aerial a$$ault
Profile/History: Born into a circus family, Scott Cutter tried everything at the circus to keep himself entertained but just couldn’t and needed to do something different and get away from his large family. He drifted around for a few years before a girl pointed him towards the ultimate challenge. He initially joined just to impress the girl but found the cause to be good and thought it would give his life a purpose to be involved in something like this.
Abilities/Weapons: Scott is highly acrobatic, has no fear of heights and can do a variety of knife throwing tricks blindfolded. He doesn’t have any survival training other than being part of a large family and has no hand to hand or military training. He carries a standard 15 shot handgun and a knife. (Yeah you know I don't know the names lol).
Weaknesses: Sometimes hot headed and often inattentive.
Appearance: He stands about 5 foot 10 and has a big mess of blond hair, ultra slim build and totally uncool 1980s clothes he grabbed from the circus before leaving, he likes the super collars. Even when carrying his trademark knife he doesn’t look menacing.
OOC: A pat on the back to whoever figures out where i have directly stolen this character from.
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
