Age: Few million
Alternate Form: Techno-organic raptor
Primary Residence: Cybertron
Heightened Smell: With her raptor form, Slice has a heightened sense of smell allowing her to track and hunt down items or individuals. This smell is good enough to rival most Cybertronian or Earth animals, allowing her to track a scent a day or two old or distinguish one from several.
Electromagnetic Cloak: During the war, Slice had a few miniature generators installed within her frame that generated a electromagnetic field around herself, masking her presence from technologies and sensors as long as she has it activated.
Experimental alien techno-organic technology: Unlike the TO project on Earth, Slice’s TO frame comes from an uncharted planet across the far reaches of the galaxy. It’s true origins are unknown but have Cybertronian influence allowing it to successfully integrate into Cybertronian bodies. Her unique variety of such a process has given her a protective element against high radiation, especially unstable varieties of energon and cloaking her signal without the need of her electromagnetic cloak.
Dromaeo Rifle: A weapon that usually makes up her tail, this is Slice's main weapon that is a light weight rifle nearly as long as her body. It is modified to the point of firing standard military rounds and photon bursts, three in quick succession with bullets ranging from Cryo rounds, Incendiary rounds, and EMP bullets. It is equipped with a Quantum Stabilizer to reduce recoil, a Photon Accelerator to increase the photon bursts to six shots per minute at the cost of overheating, and a Silencer when Slice is going for full stealth.
Trench Knife: A standard military design knife with a straight edge on one side and serrated edge on the opposite blade with a brass knuckle-like hilt.
Claws/Fangs (Beast Mode): Her beast mode is equipped with razor sharp claws and fangs that are capable of tearing through Cybertronian metal.
Any Team Affiliations?: Raptoricons, several crime syndicates
Notable Partners: Thrashclaw (Fellow assassin), Shred (Communications expert/Friend), Gnash (Primal friend)
Family: No biological family, considers the Raptoricons her sisters of sorts
Significant Other: N/A
+Chomping down on raw meat
+Testing her tracking abilities
+Quiet, star-filled nights
+Guns, especially testing them and different ammo
+Insects, organic or robotic
+People who gloat or talk too much
+Rain and water
Personality: Slice is best described as having a taciturn personality. She rarely says more than a few words and tends to show a rather neutral expression. In fact, she can come off as quite cold and showing little emotion. Instead, she prefers to keep her emotions in check and expresses things through subtle body language such as a slight frown, a shrug, a raised optic ridge, or low growl. In so doing, slice ensures she keeps a level head and stops herself from becoming overwhelmed by emotions as most others might.
However, she is not emotionless. Slice is quite focused and determined when it comes to her tasks at hand, preferring to keep her optic on what needs to be done. In some ways, her cold demeanor comes from intolerance of strangers and those who slack off, which she will gladly show a biting harshness and blunt attitude when speaking beyond a few words. She can be cynical and judgemental, if even not so quick to trust and is quite suspicious of outsiders. It is quite rare for her to express any surprise or joy beyond this, but when she does it tends to be gruff and only comes with the faintest of smiles or grins.
Well, except for those she does build a bond with, then she does show a bit more of a relaxed side. But, this is few and far between.
History: Slice was forged, coming online sometime during after the Age of Wrath. Once online, she was assigned to the Cybertronian Military where she would go through rigorous basic training and eventually went on to train as a sniper, finding she felt most at home in long-range settings. After her several months of training, Slice found herself transferred to different bases, even those on the off world colonies, only rarely finding herself in action.
Quickly becoming bored with her military career and mostly resigned to a peace keeper role, Slice began taking side jobs as a mercenary for higher, using her military training and sniper skills to her advantage. Advertising her skills to the criminal underworld, she became well acquainted with several crime lords and syndicate leaders over this time. Much of her shanix and work became focused towards taking out rival gangs, groups, and operations, usually handling her jobs without much of a word or additional requirements. Through this work, she would eventually meet her partner-in-crime Thrashclaw, a femme who worked more as a hired assassin in close quarters.
Despite their different habits, the two formed a close partnership up until the war began, forcing them to have to change the course of their work, signing up with the Decepticons. By then however, the two had become well known on Decepticon sub-frequencies and forums, both making a name for themselves as assassins and getting the job done. Quiet, swift, and standards clean cut, they continued their work while also handling Autobots on Cybertron. However, the two would eventually leave their posts in favor of taking their skills elsewhere, following a lead off world to the Kolkular Powerbase from a neutral party seeking their services. However, the two were approached by a young energetic Autobot by the name of Shred, an avid fan of theirs from listening in on the secret frequencies who came begging to join their adventures.
Surprised, the two older femmes talked over the decision before deciding to allow Shred to join their crew. Soon enough, the ragtag team found themselves working for a splinter group of Decepticons as assassins and body guards to carry out their own illegal activities. However, their services were eventually called upon to search an organic planet close by for unusually high readings of energon deposits and other energy sources. The three took the job, one that would forever change the course of their function.
While on the planet of Chicxulania, an organic planet full of non-native flora and fauna, Slice and her fellow femmes would find themselves drawn into an unexpected conflict against a sentient insect species known as the Vespoids. Having wiped out other life and experimented with its survivors, the three were forced to adapt to the wild, uncharted world, taking on techno-organic raptor forms to protect themselves from the harsh radiation levels, thwart the Vespoid plans, and rescuing a heavily experimented upon Cybertronian by the name of Gnash. Having cut ties since then, the four femmes formed the sub-group known as the Raptoricons based on their dromaeosaur forms for many years to come.
But with the centuries passed and their conflict at a stand still, Slice wound up taking a small ship repaired by Shred for a test drive in the hopes it might prove an advantage against the Vespoids. However, a test of their hyperspace driver proved to have an unforeseen glitch, sending Slice jumping across different parts of the universe at random before she could stop it. This final jump sent her to Earth’s atmosphere, forcing her to abandon ship via escape pod when it became damaged from being unable to take so many jumps at once. As a result, she has unexpectedly come crashin onto a new organic planet and into the arms of familiar and new tensions.
