I thought it might be a good idea to have a separate thread for this, since the Personal Canon thread doesn't really seem suited to it. Tell everyone about your original characters, either from your own stories or to slot into the background of an existing continuity!
To start things off, here's some of mine: the Field Support Patrol, a Decepticon Micromaster team who fit into nebulous late-G1 continuity.
- Detonator: The team's leader and EOD expert, who transforms into a mine flail. She's brave, compassionate and charismatic, and would be the ideal Autobot hero if she wasn't a Decepticon. How she reconciles her heroism with her bosses' maniacal supervillain plans is a mystery.
- Sigint: A radar van serving as a communications specialist and transmissions monitor, Sigint is... overly twitchy, and she tends to advocate immediate and drastic response to pretty much everything, exaggerating potential dangers to anyone who will listen.
- Red-X: A military ambulance, veteran field medic and complete grouch who resents having to do her actual job, getting mad at patients for getting themselves hurt. That said, she's basically unfazed by everything, and can work under ridiculous pressure with shells falling around her.
- Overreach: An egotistical braggart who turns into a bridge-layer and constantly overestimates her own capabilities. She's almost fallen down crevasses trying to stretch over too-wide gaps before, and tends to be smug and disdainful of others even after failing to live up to her own hype.
What characters have the rest of you come up with?
