best achievements are worth repeating."
Sky Lynx is a mass of silvery steel cables ready to
spring into action at a moment's notice. He seethes with
explosive energy, rarely being able to stand still for
more than a second. If he has nothing better to do, he
will transform from one mode to another just to keep
busy. When he's in action, instinct seemingly takes over.
He moves with a fluid feline grace, and with a
purposelessness that befits one as fearless and daring as
he. He basks in the glory of battle. He believes himself
superior to many of his fellow Autobots, a feeling that
he thinks is justified by his high rank and prodigious
fighting skills. He exhibits this feeling by his physical
behavior: He rarely touches the ground to stand on the
same level as the other Autobots. Usually, he's either
flying above them or else he's perched on some structure
so he can loom over them and make them look up to him. In
his puma mode, he will leap from building to building,
tree to tree, and hilltop to hilltop rather than travel
on the ground. Many of the other Autobots resent this
behavior, which often causes problems when Sky Lynx tries
to command others. But generally, Sky Lynx is admired by
his fellow Autobots for his versatility, skill, and
bravery. In the middle of a war, these are the qualities
In space shuttle mode, Sky Lynx has interplanetary travel
capabilities. He can reach speeds of 30,000 mph and has a
range of 40,000,000 miles. In dinobird mode, he has a
maximum speed of 250 mph and a range of 3,000 miles. He
can shoot a stream of fire from his mouth and hit a
target up to 3 miles away. He generally uses this mode to
fly in suborbital space and his shuttle mode to fly in
orbital and outer space. He is, however, far more
maneuverable and effective as a fighter in dinobird mode,
so he will sometimes revert to this mode in outer space.
In puma mode, he can leap up to 1.5 miles at a time.
Rear-mounted rocket thrusters can propel him up to 40,000
feet in altitude, allowing him to intercept and attack
Decepticon jets. In all modes, he has great strength and
is impervious to all but the most powerful energy beam
weapons and artillery.
Sky Lynx is prone to wasting fuel due to his habit of
constantly moving even when he has no reason to move.
