SCORPONOK
ALLEGIANCE: DECEPTICON
FUNCTION: HEADMASTER COMMANDER
SUB GROUP: HEADMASTER

“Kindness is no virtue… and cruelty is no vice.”

Profile: Scorponok seems to exist solely to terrorize the innocent and cause devastation in the name of the Decepticon cause and his own gain If his personality seems almost stereotypically evil and unrealistically one-dimensional, that’s because he wants it to appear that way Being a leader in the Decepticon army requires a Transformer to be constantly on guard, physically and emotionally, while radiating an aura of fear and power. Thus, Scorponok actively works to hide a second, secret side of himself: the noble warrior who hopes the conflict will eventually be resolved to the benefit of all Transformers Ages of projecting a violent, uncaring image would have completely relegated this side of Scorponok to being hidden had he not binary-bonded with Lord Zarak Zarak was a corrupt right-wing politician on Nebulon who saw joining with the Decepticons as a way to further his own agenda. No being, mechanoid or humanoid truly views himself as evil, so when Zarak saw the effect the conflict had on his people and the Transformers some small part of him started to question the morality of what he had done. This has prompted Scorponok to wonder very much the same.

Abilities: Scorponok is immensely powerful, highly intelligent, and virtually impervious to most armaments He is a skilled commander and a fearless warrior. In scorpion mode, his tail fires 100,000-volt blasts of electricity. He is also armed with twin pulse blasters (usable in both modes). His base mode has a full complement of scanners. communications equipment, offensive weapons batteries. and repair bays. Fasttrack is a remote-controlled drone that Subject uses to guard his back in combat In robot mode. Subject wields a fusion-powered anti-gravity gun. His Headmaster partner is a capable politician and speaker who is also becoming a skilled military leader.

Weaknesses: Subject exhibits no known physical weaknesses, but his subconscious self-doubt—magnified by Zarak’s own—could be his undoing.
