From Transformers: Lost and Found
|Played by: Araneiform|
|Alt-Mode:||Cybertronian helicopter & dune buggy|
Sandstorm likes action. He's always been a mech who wants to throw himself into the fray, and not in the helpful way other Autobots do - he just wants excitement. It's gotten him into a lot of trouble over the years.
Recently? Sandstorm is kind of a grump, and a jerk. The Wreckers created quite an impact on his psyche (as they tend to do) and this is how he copes, by being an irritable fixer-upper of mechanical systems. Yet, the playfulness, the drive for adventure, all of that remains. They've just taken on different forms.
Someone needs to help remind him that he's not actually such a butt. In most respects.
Sandstorm is a competent maintenance engineer. He's also good at getting into trouble, doubting those around him, dealing mentally and physically with bad situations (the Hardiness) and smuggling. Considering how long he spent doing the latter, it'd be ridiculous if he wasn't an expert at it by now.
Sandstorm is a triplechanger who joined the Autobot cause early on, believing this would be the faction to quickly stomp the Decepticons and win. He was very wrong. As the war continued, despite the violence, Sandstorm found himself restless, and began working on the side as a smuggler in the shadier edges of the galaxy. That ended (mostly) when he joined the Wreckers and was given all the action he could ever want, being there for the annihilation of Squadron X by Impactor, for fighting Thunderwing (twice!), etc. etc. At one point he was captured by Turmoil and, of all mechs, freed by Drift.
While on a mission for the Autobots when Earth came into play, Sandstorm ended up behind enemy lines. What they didn't know was that he used said mission to sidle back into his smuggling ways, and worked somewhat closely with a few 'Cons. Old habits die hard, I guess.
As he'd followed Hot Rod on Earth, after Optimus turned himself in to Skywatch, Sandstorm decided to follow Rodimus when the Lost Light took flight. If you're near the Science & Medical deck look behind you, because Sandstorm is probably removing a panel from the wall and cursing to himself as he fixes whatever the hell has malfunctioned this time.
