Profile

"Change is in the air; I can feel it."

Sold into slavery during the Quintesson occupation, Swift Blade was a being without a home, without a people, surrounded by those who claimed to be her 'betters'. Through millennia of service, years of strife, and periods of wandering, she finally achieved her freedom. It seemed a natural thing to seek out the planet of her origin and make it her home. Unfortunately, she is in for a rather nasty surprise.

Condensed History

The long and the short of her history is that Swift Blade was sold into slavery during the Quintesson occupation.  She started as a warrior of the battle arenas on an alien planet where the culture was full of elite, bored individuals who had a penchant for gambling.  After exchanging hands multiple times, and spending a good deal of time in stasis, she eventually came into the possession of a young man who was trying to get into his planet's prestigous academy of science.  She was his entrance project and he tinkered a fair bit with her systems, including an enhancement of her fuel efficiency.  During the process her last master realized she was, in fact, a sentient being and was set free.  Finally she was able to return home, but it's unlikely that this will give her any rest, given the current state of Cybertronian affairs.

Appearances

Original: From a distance this individual looks like a standard seeker, colored in a dark shade of red, with pale grey and black accents and the expected yellow cockpit. Closer up, it becomes apparent by a sleekness of the frame and a roundness of form that this is a femme. Apart from that, the most noticeable difference is a lack of heavy ranged weaponry to be replaced by a pair of twin swords.

Disguise: Another Seeker. It takes only a quick glance to classify this femme; she has the exact contours and equipment as one would expect from any Seeker in the Vosian Academy, slightly rounded as an expression of her identity. Her primary color is a purple so deep that it nearly appears black. Her secondary color is a brilliant, almost electric, shade of teal, which runs in a thin band along her wings, forearms, and shins. The rest of her is a plain grey tending towards the dark side of the spectrum.
