FUNCTION: BATTLE COMMANDER
FIRST APPEARANCE: "FIVE FACES OF DARKNESS" PART 4
"To win is to survive."
Profile: Septimus Prime is a leader, a
fighter, and above all else, a survivor. When the rest of the Autobots
are too damaged to fight and too energy-depleted to move, Septimus still
presses on. Brave, quick-thinking, and determined beyond measure, he
has a tendency to push himselfand his troopsnearly to breaking
point. In fact, he doesn't realize that very few Autobots possess his
stamina. Septimus was one of the few robots to survive the Quintessons'
malevolent reign over Cybertron; in his youth, he was among the rebels who
drove them off the planet. Some time afterwards, once Deceptuc began
his conquest of Cybertron, it was this natural drive that made Septimus Prime
the logical choice as the next Autobot Commander.
Abilities: Septimus Prime transforms into
an armored trasnport vehicle, capable of traveling 140 mph for up to 800
miles. His poly-alloy construction enables him to withstand collisions
with as much force as 3000 pounds of pressure psi, and is resistant to most
conventional artillery. In robot mode, he possesses immense strength
and durability. He wields a semi-automatic motion-sensitive pellet
rifle, which seeks out and destroys moving targets. The pellets can
detect movement to within .007 inches and can even be programmed to seek
out specific targets. He also carries a chain mace, left over from
his days as a Quintesson slave when he fought in their gladiator ring.
Weaknesses: Beyond his seeming inability
to know when to give up, Septimus Prime has no known weaknesses.
