FUNCTION: ADVANCE INTELLIGENCE
FIRST APPEARANCE: RIGHT HERE
"I can get you the info you want...before
you even know you need it!"
Profile: Windbreaker believes in
being as fast as possible in every situation. In his role as an information
gatherer, he uses his super speed to zoom ahead of the impending battle and
quickly report back on the terrors yet to come, enabling the Autobots to
build a more effective defense. Windbreaker has become so accustomed to working
at high speeds that he's impatient with Autobots who can't work as quickly.
He frequently interrupts others, finishes their sentences, and carries out
tasks just as others were about to get to themall because he can't
understand why they're moving so slowly.
Abilities: Windbreaker has a
photographic memory. He retains every fact, impression, and image to
which he is exposed, making his intelligence reports ultra-accurate. In vehicle
mode, Windbreaker is one of the fastest Autobots on land, capable of reaching
a top speed of 630 mph on the open road. He is equipped with a dual purpose
engine/defense module, which fires bursts of super-compressed air, assisting
his accelleration, maneuverability and braking ability in vehicle form. The
engine unit converts to a handheld air compressor weapon in robot mode, making
him nearly unbeatable in a firefight. Short burts from this weapon are capable
of knocking most robots off their feet; concentrated blasts can erode holes
in titanium armor.
Weaknesses: Windbreaker is simply
too fast for his own good; the other Autobots have a tough time keeping up
with his frantic pace. Occasionally he fails to make effective use of his
compressed air tanks while traveling at high speeds and flips over or crashes
as a result.
