Smacking his way into the forest, Torrent's stasis pod crashed through the high trees of the dense forest it what was not the most conventional or easiest of landings, before becoming wedged up up in one of the trees. Despite the very bumpy and dangerous descent into the forest, the safety light in her pod switched to green giving him the all clear to venture out if he dare.
Unknowing to Torrent however he was very high above the ground in his pod, stuck in a tree - and it was a very long drop down!
Torrent groaned and rubbed his helm as he opened the stasis pod. He peaked out of it then flung it open. "Oh...Well.... That wasn't too bad. Maybe this won't be so bad after all-WHOA!!" He cried as he took a step in mid air but managed to grab onto the stasis pod. "Too close!" He pulled himself back up and looked around. "Hey. Where is everybody? Oh well thats what the coms are for."
"This is Torrent. Is anyone there? Hello? Anyone?"
"Huh. Must've bust. All I'm getting is static. Though there is a high reading of Energon..." He leaned over the edge a little to get a better view. "Whoa... uh.. that's a... long way down... Uh... maybe I can spot them from here..." The wind blew strong at the stasis pods perch. "On second thought I'd best get going" He said as he began slowly and carefully climbing his way down the tree.

As torrent climbed his way down the thick trunk of the tree bits of bark flaked off, but the tree was thick and sturdy enough to be able to support him on his way down. As he did however a sudden pain and electrical surge sparked across his body as his internal diagnostic system activated:
+++ Internal Repair System +++
WARNING! High Energon counts! Overload in 3 mega-cycles! Transform to alternate mode immediately!
+++ Internal Repair System +++
A Stump-toed Gecko on the trunk near him ran off lower down the trunk and ran off into the woodland, scared by he excitement of this alien creature and the immediate danger it possessed..
As the surge rushed through him he doubled over slightly.
Movement out of the corner of his optics caused him to find a reptile running down the tree. Torrent quickly followed it despite the pain and managed to reach the floor just in time to see the tail dissapear into the forest.
Slowly moving towards it's hiding place, he managed to grab a scan before it realized he was there and ran away.
Torrent transformed. "Okay then. Not too bad not too bad. Now, to find the other guys."
Unaware to Torrent yet, this new form held new abilities and different changes in his Cybertronian body having a new form, and wouldn't be fully realized until he transformed. The forest was thick and humid, tall trees and thick foliage surrounded him everywhere making it hard to get a bearing.
Trampling a small way from his position, he soon found the vegetation and foliage very annoying. He hadn't gone far when a green Basilisk jumped on to him thinking it was some kind of enemy..
It didn't take long for the Basilisk to find out that he wasn't from around after Torrent transformed. It froze for a moment before turning tail and running off. Torrent, thinking this creature to be far more impressive than the one he had just scanned, attempted a rescan on the basilisk before it disappeared. He managed to scan it but a malfunction due to the large amounts of energon caused the two alts to fuse.
"I said replace! Not merge!" Torrent shouted angrily. Then he sighed. "Not time to think about it now. The others have got to be around here somewhere" He transformed yet again, only to find his alt's size to be a bit bigger, and he could now look up instead of having to keep his head on the ground. Also he was slightly brighter in colour and now had crests on his head, back and tail.
"Now, to find them I'm going to have to see them..." Torrent picked a tree near him and climbed up to get a better look.
The nearest to Torrent that he could see whilst up the tree was a thin trail of smoke just on the outskirts of the forest. Far away to his left side there was also smoke, but a long way, away, and another facing him further than that of the outskirts of the forest, perhaps the furthest of all of them...
As Torrent continued through the forest, he struggled with all the trees and foliage, not just in his path, but around his legs as well. Admist the forest it was all quiet, except for the strange noises of the native wildlife. After traveling for 15 minutes, Torrent could begin to see the edge of the forest going into a clearing..

"Relax. This type of bird I scanned is a predator. I saw one flying off to the horizon while carrying a small creature in it's talons. If anyone or anything sees us, they'll just assume I'm a hungry predator that just caught a meal. Although why one creature would want to eat another is beyond me."
