Tankette And Falconet

Name: Tankette

Background:
Tankette and Falconet were the result of an aberration in a Quintesson batch of identical units.
The Quintessons ordered them to the Testing Center, being open to the idea that this variation might be useful.

They were spared dissection when the Decepticons attacked, starting the Revolt. Post-war they were assigned to serve in the Decepticon Planetary Defense, under the command of Shockwave, with Quake as their immediate superior. They were assigned to patrol Landing Zone 3.

With the rise of the Autobot movement, they supported the Autobots and ended up on the losing side of the Civil War. Convicted for sedition, they were sent to a prison camp, ironically built on LZ-3.

They, and only they, were recently sprung from prison by SixSpider on the condition that they attack an unimportant supply depot. They did and barely got away with their lives.

Now, they hide out from the Seekers and are trying to find SixSpider, was it worth it?

Spark (C)

Adroitness: 2
Magnitude: 5
Intensity: 2
Determination: 3

Qualities:
Ideal Combiner (3pts.)

Complications:
Entangled Spark: Falconet (+1pt.)
A rare post-implantation Spark mitosis occurred in the protoform that became Tankette and Falconet. The Final Assembly Sector transferred the second Spark to its own Spark Chamber, but detected a drop in the new Sparks’ activity when it attempted to place it in a separate protoform. Instead the single protoform was allowed to develop, with components slowly added until it was two robots.
Tankette and Falconet consider themselves sisters, their empathic connection makes them an excellent team.

Tankette gets carried away in battle, and is easily provoked. Falconet is often the voice of reason.

Robot Mode (B)

Tankette is feminine in form, a deviation from the rest of the batch, and powerfully built. Her body is covered with patches of the armor of their vehicle mode.
Intended for use in the Dremden-Thraal War (a war fomented by Quintesson psy-ops.) in the red deserts of Maderan the desert camo pattern is amaranth, auburn, and burgundy.
The rest of her body is khaki. Her head is sculpted with a camo patterned open-face helmet, her face is identical to Falconet’s.

Robot Mode (C)

Falconet is feminine in form, slimmer and half the height of her sister Tankette. She has some of the Maderan desert camo on her chest, shins, and feet. The rest of her is khaki except for her shoulders, helmet, and flightpack which are duetrillium alloy (rose-silver in color). Her flightpack is part of her body, and includes components that were not supposed to be included, as the unusual conditions on Maderan interfere with anti-gravity lensing technology, but her preconscious Spark requested them for her body.

Combined Vehicle Mode

A four tread variation of a Quintesson hovertank, in Maderan desert camo (amaranth, auburn, and burgundy). The main turret contains a Pulse Cannon, and small blaster turrets are mounted on the right front, and left rear. This tankette’s treads can be dynamically reshaped to handle rough terrain without sacrificing speed.

In this Mode Tankette’s Spark controls everything but the left rear blaster, and the turret/Pulse Cannon. Falconet is in control of those.
