Flamewar is obsessed with the Decepticon cause. She desires the glory of the Decepticon Empire to return, rule with an iron fist, and ascend to its rightful position of power in the galaxy. She finds this new peace with the Autobots and Maximals repulsive and vows to keep causing ripples in the "false truce" through guerrilla tactics executed from the shadows.
Working as a mercenary, she takes pleasure in taking out strategic targets valued by the Autobots and Maximals. She is smart enough to know that ex-Wrecker Knight Devcon has been tasked with bringing her in, and takes pleasure in the fact that her repeated elusiveness is literally driving him to the point of obsessiveness. She taunts him with every kill she makes; a message here, an appendage there, or a bio-metric luminescent lip print on the face of her victims. Flamewar does not just enjoy the chaos, she revels in it.
