Earth based peace keepers.Direct
Currently living on Earth in the Decepticon city rebuilt of what was left of Metroplex; Starscream
leads a small group of Decepticons and Autobots. His main focus is to keep the peace for the humans with whatever force needed.
This came after the reconstruction of the Space Station on Cybertron where the remains of his mother were found. In her grasp
was a lone data chip, after reviewing the chip Starscream took it to Megatron and demanded an explanation. Megatron also viewed
the information; confessing that he had suspicion of the seeker’s origins. Starscream wasn’t satisfied and Megatron
explained farther that he himself was Starscream’s father.
Left speechless the jet stomped out of the office
taking the chip with him. Spending several years away from Megatron; Starscream took a long hard look at his past. From his
recruitment to his part in the raid on Autobot city. All the pieces seemed to fall together as he realized the leader had
kept him close, and had spared him on so many occasions on the sole possibility he could be his son.
Starscream is one of the fastest flyers of the
Decepticons, reaching speeds up to Mach 2.8. He can climb to sub-orbital altitudes of 52 miles and nose-dive down to near
ground level in mere minutes. This makes him particularly effective in surprise attacks and hit-and-run actions. He can shoot
cluster bombs a distance of 40 miles, each of which can level an area 10,000 feet square. His null-ray rifle can interrupt
the flow of electricity in any circuitry it hits for periods of up to two minutes, effectively preventing the operation of
many machines dependent on those circuits during that period.
Starscream set aside his
thoughts of grandeur when he took a mate in Windcon. Soon she was with Spark and the time while she was pregnant gave him
another look on what his own father Megatron had done. This compounded with the new information that he had learned seemed
to instill a new knowledge and feeling for the Decepticon leader. In now why do they get a long there is a respect there that
had never been before.
A blue, red and silver seeker Starscream is known to nearly everyone
on looks alone.
Known for being the most traitorous Decepticon to join the ranks Starscream
has attempted without success to over throw Megatron and take the leadership of the Decepticons. His skill is not questioned.
And his abilities nearly unparalleled most Decepticons would not have followed him if he had succeeded.
to act before thinking things through Starscream gets himself into situations he cannot get out of; and there are very few
that are willing to help him.
