"My mind is a terrible thing to waste."
Previous Name: Marie
location: Anaheim, California.
Family: Brother, but was disowned by him.
Place acquired: Atlanta,
Status: Active Decepticon.
Human Transfer; Reason: Classified.
Sparklings: Audioslave, Syndication, Audmentation .
Unit alignment: Femme seeker stealth trio.
Direct officer: Prizm.
This femme has changed a bit, her out going persona still fits with her attitude but she has
gained a lot of experience and refined her telepathy. Able now to sense things over much greater distances and with better
accuracy Raider has become a very valued warrior.
Her special ability urges her to seek out historic items which in
the time of peace Megatron as allowed her to research Cybertron’s underground catacombs to keep her busy.
thing that Soundwave has noted was the bond between Raider, Prizm and to a lesser extent Juci. Though neither femme was ever
related they share a simple bond that has strengthened to a semi-active transference. Emotions and short thoughts can be transferred
over this bond at any distance at any time; it is not regulated to the limitations of Raider’s telepathy. Some traces
of a similar bond are beginning to show in that of her other wing mate Juci as well. This took time to distinguish as their
non-audio communications and general in sync of thought, seemed to act like this most of the time.
Wanting the vertical lift of the Harrier jet Star Raider has a few unique abilities in her that her wing mates
lack, her jets turning around her torso into a jet pack it and its jets can be moved to make flying in robot mode extremely
agile. Her robot mode is quick and silent and lives up to her stealth settings allowing her in and out of near anywhere.
Arm rifles, machine guns and few anti air craft missiles is all she carries, most of the time not needing to be
using them, because she is the one getting the mission assignment done. Her naturally telepathic abilities increased in strength
with Soundwave’s training. However it is noted that she has a form of Psychometry which is the ability to relate details
about the past or future condition of an object, person or location, usually by being in close contact with it. On top of
that her own research with Soundwave’s help has intergraded into her systems an energy conversion system. She no longer
needs to bring the machine; she can create Energon Cubes and cross what ever source she is at into Energon.
can become arrogant and unwilling to listen to others, causing in most instances her team to be damaged as well as the failure
of the mission. Damage taken to either side of her jet pack can result in loss of flight. Her natural want to protect her
new sparkling can make her irrational and angered quickly. While using the Psychometric ability she is forced to concentrate
and stay motionless leaving her open for attack. The energy converter if used for prolong periods can be burnt out and cause
her own Energon systems to leak.
Human, picked for classified reasons. Personally allied
with the cause and was deemed proper for experimental transfer. Transfer successful and Raider took on Decepticon status.
Has since been an excellent example of a true soldier. However, subject's personal relationship with Soundwave can cause problems
on the battle field, as she will leave her mission at its end to return to his side without thoughts of her wing mates.
does not care for many Decepticons other than her wing mates and Soundwave. She is willing to sacrifice them at a moments
notice. She has been reprimanded on this more than once, though Megatron has taken her side, stating survival of the fittest.
Her relationship with her wing mates is odd, and requires more study. Of things that have been seen thus far she will
put her own life on the line for either of them. They share an interesting bond each having a weakness that is covered by
another’s strength. She has referred to it as a circle and is unwilling to break it for any reasons accept the well
being of Soundwave.
Humanistic tendencies are riddled though this subject, though cold and calculating most times,
she is also shown strong compassion as well as instances of guilt. So far she has kept her emotions directed at Soundwave
who returns her affections.
She shows strong willingness to think things through and formulate a valid solution.
shows slight telepathic abilities which have been gaining strength with Soundwave’s aid. Watching this seeker is interesting,
always seemingly one step ahead she has pulled the team from many of dead-end battles and possible deactivations. Subject
is the first of the trio to spark new life.
