VIXEN

“Aerodynamics are overrated…Big explosions aren’t.”

Faction: Autobot
Function: Munitions Systems and Development

Alt Mode: Scion xB
Color: Blue Onyx Pearl

Not to be confused with a weapons designer, Vixen’s purpose with the Autobots is to create and build new munitions for the pre-existing and modified weapons systems. Her job primarily consist of the creation and testing of these munitions.

She’s always been a fan of explosive devices and the capacity that they present. Originally designed for light-duty cargo work, Vixen branched herself away into a more promising--and more dangerous, career. This was especially due to the wars that raged on Cybertron and later Earth.

Joining the crew of the Ark on Earth after the death and re-birth of Optimus Prime, she tried to make herself as useful as she could during her stay in Metroplex. There she found willing participants to her explosives tests. Bluestreak and Skids would usually be the ones to assist with the developments. Vixen liked the perspective that Skids offered over how to “get the biggest bang for the buck” and still not manage to harm any of the locals. Many of his theories helped to minimize the damage to the local area as well. Bluestreak, being the top sharp-shooter, would usually run the tests fires for the munitions…once he figured out that they wouldn’t usually blow up in his face.

Her favorite development is her own personal weapon named “Spitfire”. The modified blaster design was easy to conceal and to handle when it was needed. Spitfire was designed to shoot out a type of “cold fire” and only burned when it came into contact with certain elements that were usually found in Cybertronian metals…or certain jet exhausts. Spitfire wasn’t her only weapon. She’s been known to keep a stash of extra ammo in her subspace in case of emergencies. For days when her aim sucks, she wears a pair of forearm mounted launchers that release a medium range cluster of smaller explosives. This is used mostly as a cover operation designed to disorient the enemy so she can get clear to make a better shot.

Though she has the firepower to fight, her lack of speed and physical strength usually keeps her as a backup option. And she’s more than willing to provide cover-fire.

I also love the alt-mode and robot design.

VixensShadow: I'd love to see your real-life Scion. I think Scions are cool - especially the small sporty ones, too.

Ugly car, hell; the Nissan Cube is ugly AND weird! the Scion XB (which she is) is simply boxy but nicely designed. It's a decent VM for her!

She actually looks feminine (instead of a d00d w/square tits, which is nice). I don't get why she's a retarded-ass Scion though.

She's a "retarded-ass Scion" because she's based on a Scion. My own car is named Vixen and has an Autobot theme for shows, hence the commish request :D

Er...because the owner of the OC likes Scions? And I think the owner may also actually drive a Scion? I want a Scion, myself...wanna get the striping on it so it'll look like Binaltech Skids. =p

Indeed you are correct, Ma'am :)

My own car -is- a blue Scion xB. Yes, she's a toaster on wheels. You should see her when she's got her car cover on. It's a very shiny silver and I want to set a loaf of bread on top just for grins. Next Christmas, I'm wrapping the car up in paper just for the photo op.

I think you should get creative and sew a stuffed fabric piece of bread to the top of the car cover. :) Every time I see a Scion (and there are a few of them here in Durango), I think of you. They're kind of funny-looking and I used to think they were ugly but now, because of you, I think the "ugliness" is just a part of their personality. :)

Lovely art, too. :) Nice job, Gearsmith! :D

Awww! *feels special and is thought of!* I'm trying to convert the masses but tis a difficult task when people walk around going "Is that a Honda Element?"

Me at that point? -_-

I don't mind if folks don't like the car, provided they make an attempt at some general manners when they voice their opinions. Failure to do so is hazardous to their health and my temper ^_^;;.

Don't tempt me with the bread idea. I'm easily entertained by anything shiny. We've been over this :p

Elements are way uglier than Scions. They look like they're about to roll over at any second. :p And hey, you've converted me, so one person down and 4,999,999,999 to go. ;)

Bread...bread...bread. I shall nag now. ;D

...you know, it'd be shockingly easy to make toast...foam wrapped in fabric and use velcro to hold it to the cover and--....crap.
