PC

A predacon whom the universe seems to hate. No matter what corner he turns, misfortune always manages to find him.

Personality

Waspinator is very scared and flighty because of the bad luck he seems cursed with. He has been hurt by objects, mechs, and even himself. As a result, Waspinator will cower and apologize for everything, even if it doesn't involve him. He avoids conflict like the plague and would rather submit to his fate than fight back. Though in the rare case his instincts drive him to act, he will explode into a violent whirlwind of limbs before disappearing for days as he fears the backlash towards his act.

Physically Waspinator could be considered suited for combat, in many ways he was created for it. But someone conditioned to cower and fear would not live up to the role's requirements. His learned skills in Navigation are far more useful then his ability to sting an enemy.

Skills

Deception: Waspinator has tried to grovel his way out of situations before, normally it fails though. He is no actor or politician.

Fortitude: Waspinator can survive and pull himself together through most things that may harm him.

Firearms: Waspinator actually has a small blaster he hides in the midst of his rather bulky armor, it is hard to find on him since he has painted it to blend into his paint.

Melee Weapons: Among his arsenal are sharp claws and a stinger on the end of his abdomen

Fate’s Chewtoy: The entire universe seems to hate waspinator in the form of his atrocious luck. Everything that can happen to Waspinator has, and there is still much more the universe has in store for him.

Low Standards: Waspinator is known for his low standards in literally everything. Friends, low standards. Living conditions, low standards. Food, especially low standards.

Self Repair: Waspinator has been hit, thrashed, beaten, bashed, burned, blasted, pummeled, slashed, crushed, smacked, kicked, and even ripped apart but he always manages to pull himself back together (sometimes literally). He would much rather crawl off to some corner and fix himself than trust his safety to a medic.

Space Hobo: in his days titan hunting, Waspinator has learned how to track, record, read maps, chart courses, and even predict obstacles that might get in the way to a destination. Along with these skills, he has cumulated personal knowledge of many different star systems. These skills were used in his countless years on his own in space (sometimes with only his wings and no spaceship to be seen).

History

Waspinator is a former titan hunter. He, amongst a group of decepticons led by Bludgeon, was selected to hunt down a titan for Megatron. He and his newfound crew traveled around the galaxy chasing traces of titan activity. Even after his fellow hunters were killed or abandoned Waspinator continued on his quest, having no orders from Megatron to do otherwise.

The insect eventually did the impossible, he found a titan. Not only did he find one, but managed to kill it with a surprise attack. In the titan’s moment of panic, though, it activated its space bridge and dragged them both through time and space. Waspinator’s luck held true and as the titan died he was able to control it in an event that scarred him for life, as he felt all the pain and terror the titan experienced in its death. The already ingrained fear was bolstered by the event and turned him borderline paranoid and fearful of everything. He ended up traipsing from one planet to the next, drowning his sorrows until the war ended. He gathered his courage before making his way back to Cybertron. His bravery backfired when the hostility from the Autobots and NAILs made life more miserable than it had already been. The call for the Lost Light went out and Waspinator saw another opportunity, couldn’t get any worse…… right?
