Starscream is not the same robot as his template - although he retains all of the intellect and guile of the original Starscream, this clone portrays none of the treachery or desire for power. He is content with his position within the ranks of this new generation of Decepticons and is unwavering in his loyalty to Jhiaxus.
Considering himself to be the smartest, most sophisticated Decepticon, Starscream attempts to pass his refinement to those under his command. He believes that they should rely on astuteness and speed rather than brute force. However, as commander of a fleet of massive bombers, the force Starscream wields might possibly be the most brutish of all of Jhiaxus' Decepticons.
