But Skids is no narrow-minded data-cruncher he combines a scientists curiosity and logic with an artist’s imagination as one of the most sensitive and introspective Transformers. His unique way of questioning the world around him has led Skids to many invaluable discoveries, both before and after the start of the Autobot/Decepticon war. Skids wishes he could blot out all knowledge of the dreadful conflict, and many Autobots believe that he often does based on his absent-minded behavior He often finds himself bumping into things while driving due to his daydreaming Skids would much rather be traveling Cybertron and other worlds like Earth, to learn about their cultures than formulating theories about the latest Decepticon attack For now, Skids is stuck in his role as a part of the Autobot army, but his mind is always wandering, pondering why things are and why the fighting continues.
