Name Fusillade
Faction Decepticon
Function Interdiction
Alt Mode B-1B Lancer
Type OC



Profile

"There is no virtue in a proportional response."

Wielding a set of razor-edged fanlike blades in robot mode, Fusillade can hold her own in single combat. In her B-1B Lancer mode, she utilizes terrain-hugging navigation and Mach speeds to punch her way past defenses to lay waste to strategic targets. Anyone foolish enough to mistake her large size for sluggishness risks being sliced wide open midair with her wing edges. Touchy about her airframe limitations, her specialization as a bomber forces her to work in a team setting. A bit too eager to please superior officers, she sometimes takes on more than she can handle, a condition exacerbated by her often brazen demeanor.

Skills: Navigation:Air, Aesthetics, Military Tactics, Astronavigation, Haggling, Swordsmanship


History

Fusillade's origin was not that unusual, being produced in the creation factories on Cybertron during the major clashes between Decepticons and Autobots, somewhere in that 4 to 8 million year old window. Originally intended as a transport, the Decepticons soon turned their minds toward more offensive roles for the Transformer, whose name at that point was altered to her current moniker of Fusillade. Although her mission profiles never required her to serve in a scramble capacity, the dependence on others for her to perform her function bothers her, resulting in defensive, insecure behavior at times. When the energon energy crisis struck Cybertron right before the departure of the Ark and Nemesis, the massive demands of Fusillade's high performance alt mode and her relatively undistinguished record conspired to make her a prime candidate for storage in stasis.

.oO(This is me, unconscious.)

Serving on Earth and return to Cybertron: The pushing back of Decepticon forces on the resource-rich Earth spurred the revival of Decepticons, and Fusillade numbered among those restored to active duty. Her time on Earth was brief, just long enough to get refitted to a B1-B to match her Cybertronian form. The tour was short-lived, before the call to withdraw from New Crystal City was made. She's had time to think, and has deciding that performing to blend into the background will not combine well with the still-ongoing energy crisis. She is currently serving on Cybertron, with an optic on moving up in the ranks.


Notes

  • This is a Fusillade shrine
  • Fusillade secretly loves Raindance because his wedge shape fits so well in her bomb bays.
  • Fusillade's bomb bays bring all the 'Bots to the yard.
  • Fusillade's rank is "Executrix." Any other -trix words you may have heard about her are strictly in an unofficial capacity.
  • Fusillade has "Damascus feet."
  • Fusillade loves a good bombing.
    Chibifusi
  • Fusillade also secretly likes Jetfire in that 'throw rocks at that person during recess' kinda way.
  • Fusillade has kind of a crush on Cyclonus's ailerons and thrusters but he doesn't seem to notice her. He's so dreeeeamy. (Wait til she decides to jack his FTL systems.)
  • Fusillade always keeps her descent goggles close at hand in case she should need them unexpectedly for... descending.
  • Fusillade has a real strange relationship with Shockwave.
  • Fusillade thinks you should get it your own damn self, why are you bothering her with this trifling slag?
  • Fusillade once bombed a McDonald's in France, causing her to become a national folk heroine second only to Jean D'Arc. Rioting French farmers now chant her name while tipping over police cars.
  • If Fusillade ever became leader of the Decepticons her title would be Imperatrix. This is the only exception to item 4.
  • Fusillade knows that the best way to see if the White House is really there or not is to drop a bomb on it. This is actually the best way to determine the reality of ANY physical object in play.
  • Fusillade breaks the fourth wall by being in love with Nightbeat's player.
  • Fusillade loves nothing better than a good White Russian! Except for maybe 5 or 6 of them.
  • She has the dubious honor of showing her ass to the point that a clone of Guiltor, originally sent to prey upon her doubts, destroyed its own core to escape.
  • For the really tough decisions Fusillade employs the Rock-Paper-Scissors method of task resolution.

  • Imperial Maneuvering Lesson - The Military Operations CO and XO get a crash course lesson in maneuvering courtesy of some VERY hard knocks by Gundam Deathscythe Galvatron.
