CatSCAN is in many ways like a lost child in the
wilderness -- he knows to some degree where he came from, but is
unsure as to where he will eventually end up. Brought to life by
a bizarre combination of Apelinq and his digitization powers and
the artificial intelligence of a medical diagnostic computer, this
curious creature has found a permanent home with the Wreckers team.
Armed with two battle blades of ancient Cybertronian design and
a tail-mounted plasma torch, CatSCAN could easily be considered
a lethal one-robot army. This fact notwithstanding, his fearsome
appearance belies an inherently gentle and nonviolent personality
-- it is simply not in his programming to cause harm to other beings.
Lacking a Spark of his own, CatSCAN has a deep wish to understand
the true nature of his self-awareness. He looks up to Apelinq as
a mentor and "creator figure" and often acts as a voice of conscience
among his teammates.
