Precise and logical is the norm for Shockwave, though he is slowly learning to accept some illogical
ideas. His focus paid off and Cybertron has been restored under his watch with the help of Juci. His first encounter with
the human turned Transformer a little baffling; to his logic center he has been intrigued with her, asking her to join him
on Cybertron. The pair worked together as well as became more than a pair. Juci’s emotionalism, and hyperactivity can
still confuse Shockwave but he’s learned to deal with it.
Not surprisingly, with the lack of femme’s available
it seemed logical to Shockwave to share his somewhat. Juci has her optics on several things, and though the Insecticons insist
she is their Queen he has notices that she has taken an odd liking to Skywarp. He finds it an interesting difference since
the Seeker is so dissimilar than he. The antics that his new mate and the wild Seeker got through interest him and keeps the
His position as Guardian of Cybertron is no longer needed as greatly, though Megatron has not ordered
him otherwise with the return of the Decepticon forces from Earth; Shockwave has been able to put his talents to another use.
He had slid into the position of Cybertron Academy’s Head Master. This function allows him to oversee the entire educational
process for the young sparklings that attend it.
The content of the Academy’s Education became more important
when the news came to him that he would have his own sparkling. Though he could teach the young one himself the interaction
of others was also important. His view changed a bit more and he let Thundertron handle some of the schooling schedule while
Shockwave headed to the lab; Juci’s pregnancy was all but good. The differences the sparkling had between Shockwave
and it’s second father Skywarp caused conflictions within Juci complicating things the entire time. Shockwave’s
logical mind whittled down the processes, and though Skywarp had pleaded with him to terminate the pregnancy for fear it would
kill Juci, Shockwave found the answer; a new form of Energon.
Once Onium was born Juci’s health returned to normal,
though recovery was lengthy. Shockwave allowed Juci to rest more often taking the raising of Onium onto himself and Skywarp
for a time.
One might say that Shockwave is and older type of Transformer, but
the advanced technology says different. He his tall, and heavily armored, partly to keep the radiation in, and partly to keep
it from being damaged in battle making him look rather slow. He is a purple, with a few silver/gray highlights. One thing
that most others notice first is the single yellow optic, and lack of other features as a face.
Among the Decepticons. Shockwave's power is second only to Megatron's. His total command of the electromagnetic
spectrum allows him, in his ray-gun mode, to emit a coruscating beam of energy in a wide variety of forms: high-energy explosive
gamma rays, x-rays that allow him to see through almost anything, blinding visible light, super-hot infrared rays and radio
waves that can either send messages or jam other radio signals are but a few of the weapons in Shockwave's arsenal. Never
having been adapted by the Ark to an Earthly form, Shockwave remains a size consistent with his robot mode when he transforms
to a ray-gun, that is, more than 35 feet long. He can fly in either mode using powerful jet thrusters in his boots (which
become the handle in his ray-gun mode).
Shockwave's wave-emission power, as well as his
flying, is limited by his high fuel consumption. Although he uses the same type of liquid fuel as his fellow Transformers,
he can also use radioactive fuels in the small nuclear reactor within his torso, which substantially eliminates his liquid
fuel dependency problem. Although his logical brain center is usually an advantage, more intuitive and emotional thinking
processes often confound him, particularly when his adversary is human.
Loyalty was never
a hard thing for Shockwave. When his parents added Megatron to his circle just as they added Soundwave he became somewhat
of an overseer. He would make sure the two had what they needed when they needed it. While Megatron had a knack for talking
to their school mates, and even fighting it seemed illogical to Shockwave to deal with what he considered lesser life forms
at the time.
Shockwave did manage to integrate Megatron into his mind as a sibling and that caused him to begin to
act as a guardian when their actual guardians were destroyed. The best example of this comes from when Megatron left Cybertron
and left Shockwave in charge of guarding the entire planet.
