Snarler (Pretender Beast):
BIO: Snarler doesn't make a single decision that isn't based on his singular brand of shortsighted selfishness. He won't burn a bit of Energon to respond to even the most desperate pleas from his comrades unless he's certain that he can get something out of it for himself. In fact, Snarler is even reluctant to follow orders until he can rationalize how it benefits him. Often, the fact that his superiors would gladly scrap the obnoxious warrior for not responding to direct commands is enough to get Snarler into action with characteristic violence and ferocity. His commanders are already starting to suspect he has a tendency to "procure" his comrades' supplies when they're not looking. The foul-mouthed mechanoid is often teamed with the now-demented Carnivac, whom Snarler sends ahead of himself to soften up his foes.
WEAPONS & ABILITIES: Subject has above average strength and remarkable resistance to fatigue and injury. His armored outer Pretender shell has a submachine gun concealed in its tail, and its tusks can emit sonic waves that interfere with enemies' cerebral impulses, making them confused or even damaging their circuits. As a robot, he's armed with a rotary cannon which fires explosive shells that hone in on their targets based on preprogrammed visual data. The cannon has a range of 6 miles and can be used in both of his modes on the outer shell. In wild boar mode, his drill can puncture enemy armor and then drain their energy.
WEAKNESSES: Subject is not very fast. He's not quite smart enough to pull off his scams as skillfully as he'd like.
