Profile: It would have been easy
for a veteran such as Autobot Ratchet to become embittered after
ages of war, death and destruction. However, even after several
million years, this Autobot has retained his original cheerful disposition
and tendency to look for a good time. This is not a reflection of
irresponsibility. Rather, Autobot Ratchet knows that while he tends
to the injuries of his patient's bodies, he must also help heal
the wounds in their Sparks. Being the best tool-and-die man on Cybertron,
no other Autobot is more qualified for the job.
Abilities: For half a century following
the last Great War, Autobot Ratchet traveled the galaxy to train
in various forms of combat to better save disabled comrades on the
battlefield. As a result, he is now one of the most adept Autobots
in hand-to-hand combat, although he prefers not to use it unless
absolutely necessary. Ratchet's wrists contain a variety of welders,
laser scalpels and liquid dispensers. His primary weapon is an Energon-blade
that can also emit stun-blasts. Autobot Ratchet is able to combine
with his repair bay trailer for greater mobility on the battlefield.
Weakness: Ratchet is not very strong,
but his skill often compensates for this deficiency.
