AUTOBOT CHAINCLAW
PRIMARY FUNCTION: GROUND TROOPER
SUB GROUP: PRETENDER

“THE ONLY THING FOR CERTAIN IS UNCERTAINTY.”

Profile: Hypochondria and paranoia paralyzes Chainclaw. He focuses on every minor technical problem until he’s convinced that he has some metal-eating disease that’s going to destroy him. Chainclaw even worries that his gun might backfire and maim him or that his shell won’t unlock when he needs to get out. He makes things worse by imagining all the horrible ways he and his Autobot comrades could be killed in battle. He’s negative and unhappy with the world, but he struggles on even though he wonders what the point really is. All his worrying and frustration is channeled into ferocious action once he starts fighting.

Abilities: Subject’s armored outer Pretender shell has serrated claws with thermal wiring that heats them until they can easily burn through most metals. In robot mode, subject wields a double-barreled blaster that converts ambient sound into powerful blasts of concussive force.

Weaknesses: Subject often worries himself to a standstill, making him too afraid to fight or even move.
