Species Essential Feature Character


Soundwave is a master of surveillance, able to not only monitor the faintest radio frequencies but capable of reading minds by scanning and decoding the electrical impulses that carry "thoughts" in both Cybertronians and organics. Soundwave's beast-form friends remain by his side, assisting him in his work as spies and cassettes. He is protective of his cassettes and they are loyal to him. Soundwave genuinely desires equality for all Cybertonians, regardless of form or function, but is willing to kill or blackmail in order to achieve it. Can sometimes be overwhelmed by a sudden surge of sensory input. Prefers operating behind the scenes.


Initially an empty wandering the streets, overwhelmed and confused by the constant surge of thoughts and emotions of others. Ravage, Laserbeak, and Buzzsaw, low caste beast-form Cybertronians, found him there. Ravage helped Soundwave learn to focus and the four of them lived on the streets as Soundwave gained more control of his abilities. Senator Ratbat eventually heard of Soundwave's gifts and approached him with an offer for work. Soundwave hated Ratbat's functionist attitude but accepted the offer.
