"Be a straight shooter and your friends and enemies will respect ya."
His career as a spy for Maximal Command has sent "Rattrap" traveling from the murky depths of the Cybertron sewers to the forests of alien worlds. His experiences have forged a deep rooted confidence in the diminutive Maximal, but they have also fostered an attitude that often grates on his teammates. Used to working alone and getting his own way, Rattrap will be the first to whine when someone proposes a course of action he does not prefer. Despite his complaining, Rattrap is a smart and cunning warrior and those who underestimate him often regret it. While his primary weapon in both robot and vehicle modes is a dual barrelled machine gun cannon , he carries an impressive array of devices that aid him in his missions including decoy beacons and time delayed explosive bombs. He joined the Axalon crew in hopes of taking a break from his intrigue-filled life, seeing as a vacation from his normal duties. Optimus Primal recognizes Rattrap's rich experience base and was more than happy to accept him into the crew - a decision he sometimes regrets.
