Volantvector

Name: Volantvector

Background:
Volantvector has lived a spartan life, free from frivolous luxury; and he hates that. He joined up with the Autobots because they pushed for exploration, which would mean more resources. During the Civil War he stooped to modifying himself to include weaponry, but kept them well hidden so as not to spoil his appearance.

These days he hides from the Seekers, scrounges for energon, and watches subspace transmissions from deep space using his Universal Signal Interceptor. The entertainment from the civilized galaxy provides a welcome escape from Decepticon rule. If he thought he could fly away from Cybertron without being shot down, he would go and never look back.

Recently, he went to trade for elicit parts to maintain his Universal Signal Interceptor from SixSpider. SixSpider offered the parts in exchange for copying some data from the USI. Volantvector assumed he wanted the entertainment saved on it, but discovered later from the USI's logs that SixSpider copied the signal vector data instead.

Volantvector wonders what SixSpider is up to.
