+ Was of one of the lower (poorer) castes on Cybertron.
+ Before the Great War, he attended and graduated from the Academy of Architectural Design and Construction.
+ Was of the demolition rank when he joined the Wreckers.
+ His hands and shoulders are larger than normal for a Cybertronian (especially for a mech his size) because he was a construction worker. Exaggerated proportions are classic traits of Wreckers.
+ Enjoys the simpler things in life: nature, solitude, tuning up his starship, Lobbing, Earth’s classic rock music, reminiscing the old days with Bulkhead, causing a little trouble around the base, etc.
+ He’s usually mellow, laid-back, and easy to approach.
+ Is blunt, unrefined, and not conscious of people’s sensitivities and comfort levels on certain topics of discussion. As a Wrecker, he has come terms with the fact that life is much too short to beat around the bush on things.
+ Has had a briefly intimate relationship with Adult!Miko Nakadai.
+ He is rather casual (perhaps offensively so) when it comes to interfacing - you either want to get in his berth or you don’t if he ever decides to ask. He finds chasing the hard-to-get to be more of a tedious chore than a thrill or form of elaborate foreplay.
+ His doorwings are a focal point during foreplay.
+ He has been spiked only a few times in his lifetime, and it’s for good reason. However, after crossing an aggressively dominant Dreadwing since the incident at the cargo rig with Bulkhead, he has been plagued with the resurfacing of old cravings that had long died with leader of the Wreckers (Springer).
+ He’s got a trained optic on the eager-to-please and eager-to-prove-his-metal youth, Smokescreen.
+ He’s not a gentlemech. Once, while trying to scare off Miko, he confessed that his ‘tastes’ had dissuaded even those who had defected from the Decepticon ranks.
+ He isn’t an easy lay. He won’t let just anyone into his berth, nor is he an addict for interfacing.
