Name Hoist
Faction Autobot
Function Maintenance
Alt Mode Tow-Truck

"You have to be rolling before you can be fighting."

Knows that the Autobots must operate at peak efficiency in battle, and allows no exceptions to his maintenance schedule. Jovial, enjoys his job and is good at it -- will find and repair any problem, from engine overhaul to smallest leaky gasket. As tow truck, hauls 40,000 lbs. As robot, very strong -- launches heat-seeking missiles from wrist sockets. Full-spectrum multi-sensor behind his head determines an object's composition, density, tensile strength, energy properties.




No exceptions.
