Stellatrix

Name: Stellatrix

Background:
Built, after both the Revolt and the Purge, from a rare protoform; Stellatrix never fit into Deception controlled Cybertron. Intended for space travel, she was the only non-Seeker permitted to explore. For the most part she stayed out of the Civil war, but hoped for the Autobots to triumph; they were the faction in favor of greater exploration.

She continues to work for the Deceptions without membership in the faction, despite her obvious lack of respect, as she is too useful to Cybertron because of the mineral-rich asteroids she brings back from her expeditions.

Recently she entered her private quarters, just off Seeker Base at LZ-2, and found a DataTab with an anonymous message. It claimed an opportunity for her to see the stars beyond the limits Shockwave allows, and gave a location to drop off the DataTab after she recorded a reply. She suspects this is a ploy by Shockwave, who never liked her and is getting to comfortable with his leadership role in Megatron's absence.

But, what if it isn't?

Robot Mode (A)
Feminine in form, and very slender. She appears to be wearing a long gown in robot mode, and carries what appears to be a parasol. Her “dress” is dark crimson and black, with some gold accents.
Her “skin” is white, her head is sculpted to suggest hair worn up, it is black. Her face has red lips, a nose, and her eyes look like she is wearing victorian quad sunglasses with gold frames and black lenses.
She is tall for her Size (head and shoulders taller than Megatron) and looks down on all but truly massive Decepticons.

Size-: 0
Speed: 3
Strength: 4

Qualities:
Mass Shifting - two Sizes: 5 and 0 [Size 0 / Size- 5] (2 pts.)
At Size 0 she retains the same proportions and is taller than most Humanoids.
If her Mass Shifting fails she becomes Size 13, nearly 150 feet tall.

Unique Technology - Tractor Beam.
Frequent, Versatile, Affects others, no EC.
This allows her to exert her Strength on something in an adjacent area. (4 pts.)
Stellatrix mainly uses this to push buttons and open doors, but does throw around low-ranked Decepticons who try to exert authority over her.

Complication: (+1)
No onboard weaponry

Energon Reserve: 156
Energon Cost: 12 / 2

Vehicle Altmode
An enormous, and oddly gothic, black and red saucer-shaped spacecraft lined with large windows along the edge. The type of craft typically used for scenic touring cruises for the Galaxy's elite.
She travels by Space Folding (when not using her UltraFlight), and is equipped with a tractor beam and shuttle bay, but no weapons.
Four Size 5 Cybertronians can fit in the empty shuttle bay in vehicle mode (quarters are cramped otherwise).
The rest of her vast, luxurious, white, red, and gold interior is intended for Humanoids. She has artificial gravity throughout.
The Ship’s gothic look is likely not part of the Quintesson design but an embellishment added during assembly by Stellatrix’s preconscious Spark’s developing personality.

Subspace Compartment: holds Size worth of Volume (2 pts.)
UltraFlight (2 pt.)
Her Subspace compartment is accessible through the same set of doors as her shuttle bay. She has no way to access it in her Robot Mode. This compartment and her UltraFlight are capabilities the original Quintesson design didn’t include. They were likely added by Vector Sigma, attempting to follow some garbled version of a Quintesson directive.
