Maximal Packrat is the consummate collector. Nothing he desires escapes his watchful eye, whether or not the property in question is legally available to him. If he sets his Energon pump on something, he will stop at nothing to acquire it. Maximal Packrat's teammates make an extra effort to lock up their quarters when he is around... often to no avail. He likes to point out that his hording has helped the Maximals from time to time when he was able to produce a needed part or a tool for a given situation. However, in some cases, the needed item was procuring from Maximal property for his collection in the first place.
Packrat is loyal to the Maximal cause, but equally loyal to his horde. This can cause an internal conflict when he must choose to save a comrade, or a piece from his collection.
