Here we go, another Beast Wars character created at the age of 12, updated for a new age. lol
Function: Communications /Intergalactic Hitchhiker
Slothra has a pretty laid back outlook on life. He takes everything as it comes. Even if it’s hitching a ride on a colonizing ship and ending up on a science experiment of a planet like Earth II, he just gives a shrug, turns up his tunes and as he puts it “Tunes out the bad vibes.”
Slothra has a vast love of old earth music. He used to host a radio show back on Cybertron but it was cancelled for lack of interest in his “ancient music.” Since then, Slothra has become a bit of a traveling hobo, or as he puts it “A Totally Righteous Universal Explorer.” Along with his longtime friend, Battle Axe, he likes to travel the stars. Sure, most of the time they have to ride in the storage bay of the ship, with no energon, or beds, or authorization from the captain. “What those dudes don’t know won’t hurt’em.” as he says.
While the tall tales of his friend Battle Axe grates on the nerves of most bots, Slothra enjoys hearing them. He often imagines the stories playing out in his head. He likes setting the battle scenes to metal music. Though they make an unlikely pair, Slothra knows he can count on the old lizard to watch his back when their on the road.
Weapons and Abilities:
Slothra, as his name suggests, transforms into a sloth. Therefore, speed is not his strength. At least until he transforms. Anti-gravity boosters on his back, allow his robot mode high-speed flight. Tearing through the treetops, blasting heavy metal and rocking out on an air-guitar. As one can assume, Slothra has a built in personal music system. While primarily used for recreation, Slothra can use the system to create sonic attacks, the extent of which he is still experimenting with. In both forms, Slothra has sharp claws with which he can attack with.
Slothra is not a soldier; therefore he has no combat training. Thus, he must rely on ingenuity to win a fight. However, his laid back attitude on life makes him unaccustomed to the quick decision making required in combat. His beast mode is incredibly slow, requiring him to be carried by Battle Axe, should he be unable to transform. His love of loud music makes him terrible at stealth.
