SUB-GROUP: COLOR CHANGE
FUNCTION: DEFENSE STRATEGY EXPERT
FIRST APPEARANCE: RIGHT HERE
"Give me more action! It's no fun unless
I can see the whites of their eyes!"
Profile: Drench is a young, impetuous
robot with a lust for excitement. He's a brilliant strategist, but he vastly
prefers testing a new defense system on the battlefield than theorizing about
it on the drawing board. Many of the Autobots find it difficult to relate
to such an immature robot on a personal level, particularly those who have
endured several million years' worth of war. It is for this reason that Drench
enjoys the company of humans. He finds that such a comparatively short-lived
species shares a similar enthusiasm for life that he does, and his time spent
with them manifests itself in the Earthen expressions that routinely clutter
his speech. Drench is respected for his amazing skill at devising what he
would call "hair-raising" new defensive methods, but he will never be fully
satisfied until he has more opportunities to participate in the excitement
Abilities: In race car mode, Drench
can reach a top speed of 290 mph. His spoiler mounted, dual-cannon aquapower
weapon can shoot bursts of water or other liquids at 2000 pounds psi. He
becomes an even more formidable opponent when he fills one cannon with scalding
plasma and the other with cryogenic fluids, firing them in succession and
using the extreme fluctuations in temperature to crack his enemies into pieces.
He also uses this weapon in robot mode, using it to defend his post with
courage and accuracy.
Weaknesses: Drench's eagerness to
rush into things often results in his inadvertantly overlooking vital factors.
Perhaps his biggest problem, though, is the frequency at which he shorts
out his own circuits in excitement.
