Profile: Razorbeast is a typical grunt, or infantry-bot. He is extremely loyal to his superiors, and willing to fight for peace until his spark is extinguished. He trains hard for an opportunity to utilize his training. He is always prepared for battle and loves fighting. Even during peace times he was known to get into a few scuffles. He has been called on by Lio Prime to infiltrate the ranks of Magmatron's Predacon forces to determine his malicious intentions. As a motorcycle on Cybertron, Razorbeast was little more than a courier for the Maximal Imperium, the ruling council of Cybertron. Yet he was secretly in training with Lio Prime for the day when the evil Predacons would rise against the Pax Cybertronia, the treaty that keeps them in check, and attempt to overthrow the Maximals. He went undercover for the secret meetings held by Magmatron posing as a disgruntled Maximal. He was recruited by Magmatron for his technological expertise and knowledge of stasis pod technology. On Earth he has taken the form of a wild boar, sometimes referred to as a razorback. He is extremely powerful, possessing the power of Predacons twice his size. He would rather smash through an opponent at full speed than to shoot at him from far away. He is also very stubborn, but would never disobey a direct order from Lio Prime. He is aggressive and eager for battle, fighting with an unmatched ferocity. This causes even his fellow Maximals to stay on his good side, lest they feel his wrath. Therefore, he is somewhat alienated from his comrades, making him the perfect choice to switch sides covertly. Lio Prime trusts his instincts and loyalty. When Razorbeast is given a mission, he is certain to complete it.
Abilities: A ferocious fighter, he can use his tusks in beast mode to impale Predacon enemies. He is an excellent shot with his double-barreled laser blaster. Able to individually target each barrel, he can take out multiple targets quickly. He is trained in various combat tactics and weapons. He also possesses battle instincts that can't be taught in a simulator.
Weaknesses: Razorbeast's courage and stubbornness can get him into situations that he is incapable of thinking his way out of, but his instincts usually take care of that.
