GNAW-JAW

ALLEGIANCE: DECEPTICON
FUNCTION: AIR AND GROUND OPERATIONS
SUB-GROUP: HEADMASTER
HUMAN COMPONENT: BANAX
FIRST APPEARANCE: "THE REBIRTH" PART 1

"My bite is worse than my bark!"

Profile: Gnaw-Jaw is a walking contradiction. He behaves in the most polite and sophisticated manner in robot mode, showing a surprising amount of courtesy and refinement for a Decepticon.  Once he transforms to gorilla mode, his demeanor completely and inexplicably changes.  He becomes the total opposite of his former self—savage, brutal, and animalistic.  He switches back and forth between modes, seemingly at random.  He is as unpredictable as he is uncontrollable, and his teammates have learned to give him a wide berth.  Gnaw-Jaw is binary-bonded to a Nebulan asylum escapee, Banax, who had been committed to the Nebulos Ministry of Mental Health after a history of bizarre behavior.  Banax felt he was locked up unfairly, and joined the Decepticon Headmasters immediately after escaping.  He regrets teaming up with Gnaw-Jaw, though, since he has enormous difficulty keeping up with the Decepticon's multiple personalities.

Abilities:   In stratotronic jet mode, Gnaw-Jaw flies at 2800 mph, and is equipped with laser blasters on the tip of each of his wings.  As a gorilla, he is incredibly strong, capable of tearing a car apart with his bare hands.  His jaws can snap a steel girder in half.  In robot mode, Gnaw-Jaw carries a grenade launcher and uses an absorbo-shield.  Instead of deflecting energy bursts, his shield can convert them into stored energy.  If he absorbs enough energy, he can even focus it and redirect it back at his opponents.

Weaknesses:  Gnaw-Jaw and Banax are possibly the most ill-suited pairing among the Decepticon Headmasters.  They dislike each other immensely, and Banax would rather function on his own than transform into Gnaw-Jaw's head.
