Here we go; I wanted to save this for later but because we've had so many blasts from the past:
Homeworld: Cybertron (he was born there but hasn't really been around since Unicron was vanquished)
Subspecies/Type: Headmaster Minicon and a Two Spark.
Appearance: Same as in the last RP (Cybertron Reborn) he was in and with the Knight Armor.
Without Armor and Unarmed
No armor and fully armed
Equipment, Weapons and Abilities: has a sword and a Plasma Launcher Cannon for his combat purposes. He has abilities over fire and uses them with precision and they are more focused. Has a device he calls the Three-Dimensional Movement Gear or 3DM Gear for short that allows him to grapple around like a character from Attack on Titan. Has several extremely small and very potent Energon Fusion Reactors within his body that power his fire abilities and each one takes 3 standard cubes to recharge fully.
He can highjack the bodies of those he kills, the catch is he has to highjack it pretty fast or the corpse is useless to him, and can use his abilities through the body for a short while. When he is done, he infuses a small amount of the Plasmafied Energon and gets the heck away from the body before it explodes.
Alt. Mode: (Same as in Cybertron Reborn) A head with a design that looks like a death-themed crown look.
Bio: one of the Original Knights. He was a pacifist and hated the fact he was built to wage war but bucked up and did his job anyway and to the best of his ability as he knew oblivion awaited them all if they failed.
He was a kind soul and wanted to live out his days in peace but his duty prevented that. He always sought to find diplomatic solutions to problems but knows that it won't always be successful, especially when Terrorcons are the opponent.
He was one of the smallest Knights and was affected when he highjacked some Terrorcons due to their Dark Energon content. This resulted in being tempted to act like they do: spread wanton destruction indiscriminately in battle and cause chaos.
He was able to stave this temptation off with the help of the other Knights and The Primes.
In the final battle, he was forced to fight Ramjet and almost lost. What happened was that Ramjet sent a small amount of Dark Energon into his head and planted a psychic "seed" of sorts that was supposed to cause him to go mad and become a sort of servant to the Heralds. This was thwarted by the opening of The Matrix but he didn't come out unscathed as part of that seed and the Dark Energon were planted in him.
In the ensuing chaos, a rift opened and he was dragged into it and was damaged.
The only thing that was left of him was a scrap of his body's natural armor, causing the others to believe he was dead.
In this fall through time and space (pretty much falling through the Shadow Zone) the seed took root and used his darker impulses to destroy and cause chaos to take form and life. In the struggle, they managed to strike an impasse and the new personality realized that its goal was inachievable due to the nonexistent connection he had to Unicron because the planting was incomplete by a large margin. The two entered a mutually symbiotic relationship of Firestorm being the peaceful one while the other personality was the one that was used in battles when they needed to end things brutally.
Firestorm feels the call of Unicron's Antispark when it arrives on Cybertron but wasn't able to join the Heralds due to the taming of the other personality. As a result he got spat out on Micronus Prime's colony world of Vergrandis. Here, he has been trying to adjust to the fact he has missed several hundred million years of Cybertronian history and is taking refuge and sanctuary in the world’s Basilica/ Allspark Temple while he adjusts to it all.
Name: Dark Firestorm
Type/Subspecies: None; is a manifestation of Firestorm's dark half.
Appearance: (Same as in Cybertron Reborn)
Abilities, Weapons and Equipment: Similar to Firestorm but cannot highjack unless the two are both in sync. His fire abilities, opposite to Firestorm's, are more powerful and more focused on destroying like crazy.
Has Firestorm's sword and gun but not the 3DM Gear. He can also separate from Firestorm for a short time, 5 minutes tops, and possess his armor. When the time limit is up or he returns in general, the armor teleports back to Firestorm. This is due to some residual energy of Ramjet. This is the only thing that is a result. The problem is that this ability has a 30 minute cool down. (And I just realized I totally based this on the level mechanics for Kid Icarus: Uprising)
Bio: Born of darkness and his host, Dark Firestorm's original goal was to eliminate Firestorm's mind and Spark and take the body for his own and serve Unicron. However, the Matrix was opened and Unicron defeated before he had been fully "planted" into his victim. In their seemingly eternal fall through time and space, he battled for control and dominance of the body with Firestorm but was defeated after they realized that they were at an impasse. As a result, they decided to work together as Dark was pretty much cast out and forgotten by those who were his masters and because he failed his mission.
The two share the body and are on relatively good terms; they squabble on occasion but they don't get too heated.
(MOC images are of my own creation and the pieces are made by LEGO, The Mask of Ultimate Power from Shapeways is designed by Cyber-Hand, the knight is a stock photo of the actual Hsbro toy and the TLK art piece is TF: TLK Concept Art by Josh Nizzi; I own nothing except for the MOC)
Sorry for the sideways pictures
