History: Snapdragon joined the Decepticons after a long stint of bad luck. He had fallen upon hard times after and desperately needed some shanix to keep himself afloat. His close friend Apeface persuaded him to be a test subject in an experiment held by a group of scientists examining the limitations of organic alt-mode scanning. Unbeknownst to Snapdragon the test was completely illegal and in reality there was no pay as well as a lack proper safety precautions. The experiment went awry, one of the creatures broke loose from its bonds and attacked Snapdragon in the midst of the scan. He and the creature were merged together, permanently granting Snapdragon a third bestial form. The scientists fled from the laboratory leaving Snapdragon and the other subjects behind.
Snapdragon was left with no money and an outcast from Functionalist society, his dragon mode viewed as completely pointless. Despite this, his strength and size led to him being hired as a personal bodyguard the infamous crime boss Thunderhoof. He served in this position for many years until Thunderhoof's compound was raided by Cybertronian law forces. Snapdragon managed to escape with his life and freedom. Around this time, the Decepticon movement was gaining considerable traction and seeing an opportunity, Snapdragon decided to join the Decepticon cause alongside many others.
Snapdragon was placed under Scorponok’s command for most of the Great War. Over time the other Decepticons learned that fighting alongside Snapdragon was was not as pleasant as they assumed. Despite his considerable strength and intellect, Snapdragon is hindered by that fact that he is the most lazy and unmotivated being in the entire universe, causing him to be extremely ineffective in battle and putting himself and his fellow Decepticons into dangerous situations. The last straw was during the Third Vorsk Offensive, when he failed to report to his post during a crucial defense of a weapons depot. The depot was evacuated and Snapdragon was left behind. Snapdragon somehow managed to stay alive, his mind slowly succumbing to the rage and primal instincts of the creature he took the form of. He was eventually found by a Decepticon search team but by then, the damage had already been done.
Snapdragon later joined a splinter group headed by Hun-Gurrr and Snaptrap. He took part in the occupation of the Temptorian capital Sensensica with the same group. During this occupation, Snapdragon was beaten by the Autobot forces of the Lost Light and imprisoned aboard the ship until its return to Cybertron. Upon returning, Snapdragon broke out along with the other imprisoned Decepticons, taking part in an attempted rescue mission of Megatron during his trial. The rescue failed, and he was re-incarcerated.
Weight: 18 tons
Strength level: While Snapdragon possess immense strength for a Cybertronian of average size, he is simply not motivated enough to use it.
Unusual power: Snapdragon possesses the normal Cybertronian ability to change from “robot” and “alt-mode”. However, Snapdragon is a triple-changer and thusly possesses two-alt modes instead of one. His modes are a mechanoid dragon and a stealth jet.
Weapons: Snapdragon uses a pair of hand held blasters that fire gyroscopic disruptor bolts. When not using these weapons, he can use his dragon mode’s carbon-steel teeth and claws to tear his enemies apart.
