"They can't beat the best"
The youngest of the Axalon crew, "Cheetor" is enthusiastic, impulsive and brave. A former cadet in the Maximal Command Security Force, Cheetor left in search of an adventure that would take him to the far reaches of space. Seeing leadership potential in the young Maximal, Optimus Primal recruited him to join the Axalon crew, hoping their mission of discovery would help develop his innate abilities while teaching him ways to curb his abundant enthusiasm. At the core of all of Cheetor's actions is his desire to prove himself to the older Maximals that he idolizes, such as Optimus Primal, whom he refers to as "Big Bot." Cheetor, the fastest Maximal aboard the Axalon, can reach speeds of up to 550 mph in vehicle form with a range of 1500 miles. His specially designed engine block converts into a dual barrelled Quasar Cannon for offensive strikes. While his Axalon crewmates sometimes express impatience with him, ultimately they all feel a sense of responsibility to help him grow and develop.
