As the youngest girl no one really listens to Cloudburst. For that she has became rather introverted
and doesn’t bother to go with the others when they go on outings. She doesn’t dislike them for it; in fact when
alone with her siblings she talks to them rather often. Cloudburst loves puzzles, doesn’t matter what kind, she is interested
in figuring things out. This makes her interested in history and finding out facts. She has taken to studying a lot of Earth
history since much of Cybertron’s history is still lost.
She prefers to stay on Earth where she can practice
her name sakes ability and causing clouds to suddenly burst with rain. Her power chip is connected within her turbines and
produces a vibration that causes the molecules of water to coagulate and a sudden down pour to start.
likes to study history and is a big traveler on the space bridge since she likes Earth. Her studies are transferred down to
the Decepticon base.
Silvers and Red cover this little seeker, in the classic F-15 alt
mode she shares with her siblings and parents.
The only sparkling to actually have a permanent
residence on Earth Shockwave has allowed this to a degree of grades should she begin to falter he will request her residency
be moved to Cybertron.
The same thing that gives her the special ability also can cause
her turbines to burn out if left on for a prolonged time resulting in her falling out of the air.
