As the last known survivors of Squadron X, Ferak and his diminutive partner Pirate Tornado have run from system to system to avoid prosecution for their prior crimes. They were fortunate to find much needed safe harbour with the Star Seekers. Having been branded as part of the crew, they currently pledge their allegiance to Captain Cannonball.
Ferak is an accomplished engineer and inventor. If his creations were not so sadistic in nature, they would be revered by the Autobot Science Council. His alternate mode is a hunter-seeker skyship, self-equipped with a heavily modified built-in deuterium - based electrochemical laser. Tornado is a saboteur by trade and backstabber by his own Cybertronian genetics. He has pledged his life to reforming his traitorous ways, but he still keeps a personal log filled with 'profitable' information that can be accessed at any given time or situation. Tornado despises his alternate gun mode due to its tendency to jam, caused by a faulty energy transfer conduit in his power processing unit. Ferak has replaced this component multiple times but has yet to determine the root cause of the failure.
