Episode: Fire in the Sky, after he falls back into the ice.previous cr:
Skyfire was a scientist on Cybertron, along with his friend and colleague, Starscream. This was before the war broke out between the two factions, and the only Cybertron that Skyfire remembers is a peaceful, quiet one. Never one for combat, Skyfire got his excitement and joy from his job, studying other planets and the intelligent life forms that lived upon them.
Along with Starscream, he went out on a mission, discovering the planet earth years before humans ever walked upon it. Though a scan of the planet revealed no intelligent life, Skyfire insisted they move in for a closer look, curious as to what secrets the planet held. Unfortunately, the two of them became caught up in a polar storm, and were separated in the arctic. Starscream, unwilling to leave without his partner, circled the globe looking for him, but was unable to find him until his second crash on the planet earth, millions of years later.
Skyfire spent untold eras buried beneath the ice of the arctic until the Decepticons found him, thawed him and recruited him to their side. Though uneasy about the situation, Starscream’s very presence there seemed to be enough to convince him to join forces against the Autobots, of whom he only assumed were evil due to the fact Starscream was fighting them.
His time on the Decepticon team was short lived, as Skyfire became increasingly upset by the Decepticon’s method of warfare and their treatment towards humans. The final straw was when Starscream attempted to have him murder a squad of captured Autobots. When Skyfire refused, Starscream shot him, gravely wounding him and leaving him for dead. It was only through the help of the Autobot medic, Rachet, that he barely managed to pull through, and turned the tide of battle in the arctic against the Decepticons.
He even went into battle against Starscream, though in the end he was unwilling to kill his old friend, instead knocking Starscream from the sky before using his blasters to cause an avalanche of snow around the Decepticon arctic base of operation. He saved the earth from an icy fate, but was entombed in ice once more himself, where he was to be trapped until months later, where the Autobots would locate him and thaw him out once more.personality:
Skyfire is possibly one of the friendliest, most helpful, most compassionate ‘bots you could ever meet. Though dedicated to science in almost every way, his pursuit of knowledge is meant to help, never to harm. As an Autobot, he believes in the freedom of all sentient beings, and would much sooner observe the inhabitants of earth peacefully and nicely than wage war or smash them. Though he is an absolutely MASSIVE guy, he’s gentle and careful, always willing to use his strength and size to help anyone in need.
He’s somewhat naïve, however, willing to assume the best of anyone. A hopeless optimist, really. While he is also always willing to help, Skyfire is… not… much of a fighter. At all. That is not to say that he cannot fight at all, and can be quite capable when properly provoked, but he tends to dislike harming others. Both battles with the Decepticons saw him laid out flat by Starscream, and in each fight his aim was to disarm and end the fight with as little damage as possible, either by destroying cover, knocking ‘Cons out of the sky with a body slam, or destroying weapons before they could be used. While he enjoys assisting his fellow Autobots in their battles, he’d be much more at home simply studying the local flora, fauna and intelligent life. He is unwilling to take anyone’s life, really, be it ‘Con, Autobot or human alike. Skyfire is terribly curious, and can and will drop everything in order to further his knowledge, literally walking out of a fire fight once to inspect and assist two imperiled humans. It’s probably safe to say his curiosity hasn’t been dampened one bit, ever eager to learn more about his surroundings.
Skyfire, being a scientist, is quite intelligent, and will not hesitate to launch into explanations or lectures that would rival any tongue twister with its complexity. He doesn’t seem to always remember that not everyone knows exactly what he’s talking about when it comes to science, and will happy science-babble at anyone who will sit still long enough to listen. He honestly doesn’t mean to sound like an egghead, he really can’t seem to help himself. He gets excited at the prospect of learning more as well, along with his curiosity, and does not hesitate to ask questions. Even if they might seem a little… strange.
As well, he likes to keep in top shape, modification wise. Before he crashed, he had kitted himself out with top of the line modifications to his body, in order to travel for long spans of time in the emptiness of space. He loves being cutting edge and fully updated, and in turn appreciates such technological advances on others. He’s pretty hands on, and usually won’t hesitate to inspect things he finds interesting a little more… closely. He doesn’t seem to fully realize that he is at all intimidating with his build, and he interacts easily and casually despite differences between himself and others.
It is also pretty easy to see he’s… perhaps a little absent minded at times. His compassion for others along with his natural curiosity often clouds his judgment, and usually ends in him taking a laser to the chest plate.
Finally, there is Starscream. While he eventually proved willing to knock his former friend and colleague from the air in the show, he has never once opened fire on Starscream, and is unwilling to fight much with his old friend. Something of a push over with everyone, being far too polite and easy going to fight much, he beds pretty easily under Starscream’s more demanding and bolder personality. It is easy to see he still has tender feelings for Starscream, unwilling as he was to use lethal force on him despite being fired upon himself.abilities/powers:
Flight: With his engine mods, Skyfire is easily one of the fastest fliers around.
transformation into a shuttle craft: While at home he could carry people inside of him, in Abax he’ll be far too small for this task. However, he is much faster in shuttle mode than he is without transforming.
subspace storage (used to house his gun): He can hold a few things in his subspace if he has to, but it’s usually used to house his double barreled plasma blaster.
proportionate strength: In the show, he was capable of lifting Megatron over his head and hurling him into a snow bank. It’s only to be expected that he’d retain proportionate strength here.
Armor: Skyfire’s armor does not rust like earth metal does, and he is capable of taking hits from human weapons like guns without getting too badly damaged. However, he is weak to weapons from his own planet and is usually laid out easily by well-aimed plasma blasts.
Scanners: He has internal scanners that can give him information on the world around him, and on his own internal systems.
Scientific Knowledge: While he doesn’t have a doctors understanding of the Cybertronian body, it’s still pretty in depth, knowing how to add mods to his own body. It’s reasonable to think that he’d be clever enough to do a bit of field work and first aid on other Cybertronians.first person sample:
Really, this city is actually quite amazing, if you think about it. When will we ever have a chance to meet others from alternate universes, different realities altogether? I had originally imagined that the theory was near impossible to prove or disprove, that it would have been impossible to visit these different universes or even gather evidence of their existence, but here we are now. It really is extremely incredible. If I can gather information of this world, of the other worlds, just imagine the impact it could have on the scientific community. The possibilities that it opens up. We are looking into an entirely new frontier, beyond space and time into something more. Not simply entirely new worlds, but entirely new universes
True, there are… unfortunate implications upon arriving here… And I would most like to go home sometime soon, but this situation isn’t entirely negative. I would have never met such fascinating people at home, made such new and wonderful friends. I would vastly prefer a life having known the people I have met here than never having known them at all.http://ink-city.dreamwidth.org/337241.html#commentshttp://ink-city.dreamwidth.org/282643.html#commentsthird person sample:
He'd returned not too long after his reconciliation with Blurr, the smaller Autobot having to return to the hangar. Skyfire had wanted to go back to the Nemesis... for several reasons, really. Of course Starscream was the biggest one. He couldn't bring himself to leave where ever the jet was for too long, not when having him back, even if it wasn't the same one, was still a novelty.
On top of that, there was no better place to observe the underwater wildlife that still moved about at this time of year. Despite the frigid temperature, he had been treated to a few schools of fish crossing over the decks windows, and he'd become rather taken with them, logging when they passed over, what kind of fish they were, the patterns and manners in which they moved... It was relaxing, almost like a return to normal for him. To be honest, he'd somewhat grown to enjoy the city. It felt like... a second chance.
It did, of course, occur to him that despite the Nemesis being devoid currently of any other Decepticons, the other Autobots might not… entirely think it wise to remain on board, but with the small size of the rest of the buildings in town, he really had no other choice. Besides, it wasn’t really all that bad. He got to share it with Starscream, after all, and the mech had not actually made any attempt to harm him or force him to stay on board the ship. Really, the situation could have been a great deal worse, he thought he was pretty lucky right now.
He was focused now on a rather large fish, some impressively sized, sleepy looking specimen, a smaller, more brightly colored one darting about it, seeming to try and harry the much larger fish. He couldn’t help but smile, making a note on the data pad he held. Yes, he had to say he was genuinely happy here, despite it all. When else would he ever get another chance like this?http://ink-logs.dreamwidth.org/53910.html#commentshttp://ink-logs.dreamwidth.org/51503.html#commentscase no:
