Transformers Steeljaw

STEELJAW
ALLEGIANCE: AUTOBOT
FUNCTION: TRACKER

“What the eyes don’t see, the nose knows.”

Profile: When Steeljaw is on the hunt, his prey is as good as caught. His unyielding determination and tenacious pursuit combine to make him a truly formidable Autobot. He handles each mission with a cool professionalism born of the great confidence he has in his abilities. When he’s not busy stalking Decepticons, he’s likely to turn his attention to any scent that comes his way—the spoor of a mouse, the stench of a garbage truck, even the perfume of a young woman. This often results in a frightening surprise for his unsuspecting quarry. Steeljaw usually doesn’t mean any harm on these occasions—he just likes his work so much that it’s also his hobby.

Abilities: In lion mode, Steeljaw uses an array of chemical receptor micro-chips in his nose module to locate and follow scents. The array is sensitive enough to pick up chemical traces in the air as faint as one part per trillion. He has a range of 800 miles and requires little rest or maintenance. His jaw has tremendous strength; anyone caught in its grip would find it next to impossible to break. It can exert a force of 60,000 psi and can snap a foot-diameter steel cable. In cassette mode, Steeljaw can electromagnetize himself so he can adhere to ferrous objects. He uses this ability to hitch rides over long distances in a form that won’t attract much attention.

Weaknesses: Steeljaw must avoid wet environments since his body is particularly vulnerable to rusting.
