Transformers Generation 1 Kup
Motto: The past is the greatest teacher.
Alt mode: Cybertronian Pickup Truck
Profile: Kup, as in Pickup truck, is an old warhorse. A grizzled Autobot veteran with ten thousand tall tales from his one thousand adventeures and a motto or word of advice for any situation. He is as brave as they come and as loyal and sometimes as crotchety as a wet hen, especially when Hot Rod's adolescent thoughtlessness propels them into dangerous situations. Kup loves being int he company of the Dinobots because they love hearing his tales of glory. When he transforms, Kup's vehicular mode is somewhat squarish and "old-fashioned" compared to some of the sleeker, "later model" Autobots, but he has no complaint about that. He sees himself as a seasoned campaigner with much knowledge to impart an he imparts it whether or not anyone has asks for it. He is sort of the Fallstaff to Hot Rod's Prince Hal and he relishes the role!
Abilities: In robot mode, he carries an old-style musket laser that shoots bursts of metal-corrosive hydrocloric acid with a range of 5 miles. In cybertronian truck mode he is capable of speeds of 110 mph.
Weaknesses: Kup's great experience is a double-edged sword. While that experience can prove very helpful when the situation is familiar he tends to rely too much.When the situation is unfamiliar he isn't always adept at improvising.
