Cannonball is the charismatic and cunning pirate leader of the Star Seekers and the Captain of his ship, the Tidal Wave. He rules through charm and subterfuge, rather than force and intimidation (not that he isn’t capable of both.) While he may prefer a more subtle approach, this bot is a skilled swordsman and an accomplished warrior. His hands are capable of transforming into variety of armaments, but being a true swashbuckler, his weapons of choice are a pair of golden dueling daggers. When these are drawn, it's almost certain that the decks will be stained with mech fluid.
His crew is a ragtag group of mixed bots and beasts, with an army of Dread Pirate Crew troopers at his beck and call. He prefers that his enemies underestimate him, and puts on a false veneer of simple desires: that of simply pillaging and plundering. In his spark, his truest wish is to become a legend; that of being the greatest pirate of all time by pulling off the greatest heist ever contemplated in Cybertron’s history.
