Catch Thumper in a good mood and she’s just a regular mech with a fondness for loud music, reading a good novel and leaving each to their own. She’s direct but not impolite; she’ll speak her mind but won’t force her opinion down your throat. Thumper for the most part likes to be left alone but she prefers actually having people around her, just not interacting with them.
In a bad mood, it’s easy to see how Thumper is a Pred. She has a definite temper on her and she’s more than willing to take it out on the nearest problem with her fists – and she’s had plenty of practice.
In robot mode Thumper exudes toughness and strength, in the way she carries herself and in her adornments. In beast mode, she doesn’t look so tough, which is a sore point with her. A tiny little hiccup when assigning her alt mode gave her the wrong one. No self respecting Predacon would choose to look cute so she taken to piercing her ears and wearing a spiked leather bracelet and collar to add a little bite to her cotton soft tail while in beast and robot mode.
The truth that she will never admit is that she taken a liking to her beast mode. The softness apparent in her fur has taken warm hold in her spark and she gets really miffed if that fur gets singed – though she explains her annoyance as distaste for the smell of singed hair.
Thumper was sparked well after the signing of the Pax Cybertronia, though she seems far more mature than her mere two centuries. She was born to the Predacon underclass and for the most part, that’s all she really ever known. She didn’t care that she was “oppressed”, life was tough, and she was tougher. Thumper took each cycle as it came and made the most of what she had. In between loud concerts and bar brawls (some of which she started), she studied metallurgy. Now on a planet made a metal, metallurgists were common but Thumper shined in her field. Her natural talent was matched by few and it was not long before she was re-forging some of her own components utilising what rare metals she could afford to make her stronger and tougher.
When the Preds started launching their own colonisation ships, Thumper signed up on one looking forward to the chance to get away from all the perceived oppression and put her talents to valuable uses and perhaps find new and interesting ores to work with. WEAPONS/ABILITIES:
Thumper carries a standard issue blaster pistol, more of a fly swatter than personal protection against an armoured foe.
Thumper is a skilled boxer and in beast mode, a kick boxer. She’s had a lot of practise and despite appearances; she’s built for melee with reinforced servos and higher grade components. She is very scrappy and rather enjoys a good fight. She also carries a pretty big pickaxe in sub-space
Her ears contain infra-magnetic detector coils which allow her to home in on metallic ores (but not find invisible opponents or anything). Her ears are also very sensitive to noise (like all good bunnies) but also possess a very high tolerance for volume.
Thumper is a metallurgist first and foremost; she is skilled in all manner of blacksmithing, mining, and competent enough in most forms of engineering.
In robot mode Thumper can still see through her beast mode optics, and all four optics have a built in welding lens that slides into place when desired. This affords her redundancy rather than better vision. (Rabbit head becomes helmet in bot mode)WEAKNESSES:
Thumper’s fur is quite far from being fire resistant. She has little defence against a ranged assailant, instead having to rely on her agility and toughness to get her into melee range.
Thumper also makes a poor team player as her temper can often get the better of her. She also suffers from mild agoraphobia, that is, she dislikes open places and is more easily distracted as she acts tough to cover up her fear.
Due to the functioning of her ears, Thumper is extremly sensitive to EMP's. She literally does not know what hit her if she gets hit with an EMP.Active Threads:Well HungoverCapture, Fortify, Command This post has been edited by zerosix on Oct 7 2011, 09:04 PM
