Tech Spec

"The secrets of the universe are coded in every Cybertronian's spark... and I won't stop cutting until I find them!"

Predacon Tarantulas is a being without a history. In his rush to remove Jhiaxus' clones from his laboratory before the Autobots discovered its location, Sky-Byte mistakenly extracted four stasis pods of unknown origin. The emergent robots immediately declared for the Predacon cause, some might say suspiciously quickly. Of the four robots, Tarantulas has since discovered an endless fascination with experimental science, especially seeking any opportunity for vivisection. Rumors persist that he engages in cannibalistic practices with the mech fluids he extracts from his hapless victims. His knowledge of cyber-anatomy is unparalleled and has enabled him to create a variety of tools and inventions, including his Arachnoid minions. Converts to a motorcycle for short bursts of great acceleration, though his range is limited. In combat, he likes to hack his opponents to pieces with his nuclo-titanium axe, the more messy, the better.
