BEAST MODE: Mountain Lion
FUNCTION: Information Recovery/Sabotage
QUOTE: If you're still alive that doesn't mean the universe likes you, it just means it hasn't gotten around to killing you yet.
Sandclaw has no idea where she came from or who she was before waking up in, and getting out of her pod. The only thing that she found in her memory was a name, Sandclaw. She has been wandering on the strange organic planet for a short while observing any she sees that look like her. She recognizes the symbols on them but has no idea what they mean or who they are. Hiding out in different caves she soon realized that she needed some sort of food. She tried some of what the organics ate and it did nothing but make her dwindling condition worse. She saw one of what she assumed was her kind and approached, unaware of the danger she was putting herself in. It ( a Predacon) attacked her and she fled unsure of what she had done to threaten it. She decided not to try and approach any of the ones carrying the strange round symbol, labeling them an immediate threat. She was headed towards a cave when she collapsed out in the open to her horror and barely had the energy to transform from bi-pedal to beast. She crawled away to go hide in one of the numerous caves she has claimed as hers and is waiting for the end, unable to much more than that.
Sandclaw in her beast form has claws, which are retractable when she doesn't need them, and fangs. Also she has a sonic screech that, when in its direct path long enough, will destroy the audios of a mech. Her tail is prehensile to a point. She can grab medium sized objects, push bigger sized buttons, trip others and knock useful things like a blaster out of a Maximals reach. She has a visor that comes down over her optics cutting the glow of them and giving her night vision. She has compartments where she can store things such as small bombs and several information discs but nothing else. Also she has a sound dampener to make sure her steps are harder to hear when on a mission in enemy territory. In both forms she can record conversations and has her scream. In her bi-pedal form she still has her tail and also has a rifle that comes out of her right shoulder when needed. It can scope and does serious damage since it is her only long range weapon but is almost useless in close combat because it is meant to be a sniping weapon.
Upon her pods impact to Earth it jarred her CPU causing her to form a personality glitch. It isnít that she doesnít feel or doesnít know how to express herself itís just that she canít purposefully express herself. When in the threat of termination she will have violent outbreaks unable to tell friend from foe. She is rarely seen in bi-pedal mode because most of the traits that help her survive are in her beast mode.
Tan metallic ears flicked towards the trees as something rustled the leaves. Sandclaw hunkered lower in the bushes, pushing her metal belly against the ground. Quivering slightly Sandclaw raised her olfactory censors hoping to catch a whiff of whatever was stupid enough to make itself known. Her visor lowered with an inaudible click covering the only light that would have given her away. Before moving towards the tree she made sure that her night vision visor was working perfectly. She felt her joints move in perfect fluidity, like the fluid that flowed clear and cold.
Snapping her attention back to the tree, the furred creature had poked its head out and was looking around. She froze like a statue, optics focused on the black furred thing. She was at the very base of the tree ready to leap up and grab it if it noticed her. It was just about to pull back into what it thought was a safe hiding place when it saw her. It froze just like she had, eyes going wide in fear and understanding. It knew it was the prey and it was looking into the eyes of its hunter. It played out its part by trying to cry out for help but never got the chance.
Sandclaw felt the crunch of bones beneath her fangs and an unwelcome heat flooded her mouth. She let the limp body of the strange four-legged thing fall from her mouth and sniffed at the mangled broken remains. She moved away spitting out whatever liquid was now in her mouth. She pulled back her visor to look at the red liquid, it had come from the organic thing. She silently padded back over to the creature and sat down next to it.
"I am sorry for the waste of your life, it appears I cannot consume you for the nourishment I need. Let whatever being you follow take pity on you and allow you a safe return to this realm.Ē
Sandclaw looked down at the dead and bloodied creature deciding to send it off with something no one else would hopefully ever hear. Dropping her head back she let out a piercing scream that would chill even the most hardened Cybertronian.
The only evidence left of anyone ever being in the valley were the broken bloodied remains of a successful kill and four long scratch marks on a nearby tree.

I'll just go to Walmart buy all the salt they have in stock, kidnap some preachers of the non-molesting variety, a rabbi, a witch doctor, and priest so I've got all my bases covered then you won't be able to haunt the house.
