Personality: Logic dictates Shockwave’s life. It is his all, and it is everything to him. While other Cons activities are motivated by revenge or gain his are controlled by logic. Shockwave’s calm monotone voice is usually the one of reason in an otherwise chaotic situation. He will take every situation and weigh the pros and cons before taking any action just to be sure it is the correct one. Shockwave is a highly intelligent mech who would rather work in his lab than fight. A most valuable component in the Decepticon forces. His moral center, however, is questionable, going far beyond the parameters of others in his class he will not hesitate to push the envelope of science to get results. Much to the chagrin of his test subjects. You do not wish to end up on his dissection table.
History: Shockwave was a high ranking scientist before the great divide that caused the Autobot/Decepticon war. He even held a seat on the High Council for a time. But his radical and questionable ethics with his work not only cost him his seat but also his identity. Taken into custody and brought before his fellow council members Shockwave was sentenced to a procedure called empurata. The removal of one's head and hand units and replaced with blanks. A way of not only erasing a bots unique traits but as a mark of shame. But Shockwave being the ever diligent scientist took their mark of shame and turned it to his advantage. He replaced the single eye they had given him with one that can see multiple spectrums and can magnify microscopic objects thousands of times their size. His left hand that had been replaced with a stalk he had given himself a powerful pulse cannon. After that, his disdain for the High Council and their followers began to grow despite his logical view on the world. But it wasn’t until a young Kaon gladiator rose from the ranks did he find his true calling.
After joining Megatron and his newly founded Decepticons, Shockwave began his work to improve energon production, weapons and even continued his experiments on his fellow Cybertronians. Only this time they were enemy Autobots, giving him even more freedom to push the envelope of science. Shockwave created the sinister cortical psychic patch and was then assigned to the Space Bridge project.
During a raid by the Autobots however, the Space Bridge overloaded and Shockwave was betrayed by Starscream to be left behind on a dead world. He survived broken and blind for decades before he was able to repair himself. After that, he continued his work and found the pure solitude allowed him to concentrate on his work alone. It wasn’t until Knock Out and his team found him millions of years later that he returned to the Con ranks.
He then began work on the Predacon Project. Cloning deceased creatures back to life and as a result, giant mechs like Predaking, Skylinx and Darksteel came into being.
After Megatron was defeated and Unicron threatened the very existence of Cybertron. Shockwave fled to Cybertron’s closest moon where one of his many underground labs was located. There he remained until one hundred years later when he picked up Megatron’s energy signature. Now he seeks to return to Cybertron and rejoin his leader.
