* Amongst humans, at least. RV +50 to fellow Autobots, RV -50 regarding Predacons / Decepticons / Vehicons.

Origin:

As are the rest of his fellow, somewhat land-locked Autobots, Storm Jet is an electromagnetic being from Cybertron, a robot that strives to prevent Decepticon dominion of the universe. This alien may also be from another time period, making him doubly out of place on earth.

Known Powers:

Cybertronian Physique: like his fellow Autobots, Storm Jet is a robotic entity of Cybertronian design and origin. As such, this high-flying warrior has, by his very nature, the use of a large variety of abilities that reflect this. His very body gives Storm Jet these super human powers:

* Body Armor: made (or formed) from primarily metallic materials, Storm Jet is considerably durable. His sturdy, inorganic composition affords him Excellent (20) protection from attack, enough to shrug off most human assaults. Storm Jet's armor breaks down as follows:

RV 20 / RV 6 / RV 2 / RV 0 / RV 0

* Growth: Cybertronians come in all manner of sizes, few of which align with the human norm. Storm Jet, for instance, normally stands at around eighteen feet tall in his humanoid mode, which grants him this power at rank value 6 as a general matter of course.

As such, this aerial combatant possesses a +1 size factor. He thus suffers a -1 RS when targeting human-sized foes, but gains a +1 RS on any damage he inflicts against them, as well as 1 RS of damage reduction against any attacks they, in turn, launch against him.

* Microscopic / Telescopic Vision: all Transformers have the ability to alter their visual sensitivity where distance is concerned. Functioning at rank value 2, these powers let Storm Jet see objects up to a mile distant with ease, as well as allowing him to read items on microfiche.

* Radio Transceiver: as are most Transformers on earth, Storm Jet is equipped with an audio / video transmission system. This communications rig allows him instant contact with any other nearby Cybertronians, having rank value 20 range (100 miles).

* Resistance / Invulnerability to Disease and Poison: as an inorganic life form, Storm Jet possesses complete immunity to poisons and organic diseases. He also possesses rank value 100 resistance to more chemically creative forms of disease.

Flight / Levitation: in his vehicle mode, Storm Jet can fly about at rather high speeds, doing so with rank value 200 ability, almost Mach 2. However, he can also levitate in his third, modified humanoid form, his so-called 'hover' mode, doing so with rank value 75 skill.

Missile Launchers: Storm Jet can make use of twin rocket launchers embedded within all of his forms; they're on his wrists in humanoid and hover mode, and near his air intakes in his vehicle mode. Either way, missiles fired by these launchers have these vehicular statistics:

Handling
RV 40
Velocity
RV 200
Durability
RV 20
Damage
RV 50 Slashing (fragmentary)

Shape Change: Storm Jet is an Autobot triple changer. His first mode is an advanced combat jet of Cybertronian design, his second is a basic humanoid form, and his third is a modified version of his second, a sort of 'hovering sentry' form. His jet form has these characteristics:

Limitations / Enhancements:

Quirks:

Temper 2: while he hides it well, Storm Jet is possessed of a frightening temper. If someone should attempt to provoke him, he must pass a Willpower ACT roll at -4 RS in order to resist the urge to trample them mightily - assuming he remotely wishes to, that is!

Skills:

Aerial Combat: since his primary function is that of a combat aircraft, Storm Jet has gotten very, very good at fighting while in flight. As such, he should be allowed a +1 RS to all combat ACTs rolled while in the air, whether offensive or defensive in nature.

Marksman: furthermore, Storm Jet is rather competent in the use of his inherent missile weaponry; this skill extends to the use of various, line of sight weaponry like mortars and such as well. He may use all such weapons as though his Coordination was +1 RS in value.

Contacts:

Though he showed up on earth later than his fellows, Storm Jet can naturally rely upon the earth-bound Autobots for assistance should he need it; after all, he offers a valuable function in the form of aerial support, evening the odds in battle with the highly mobile Decepticon forces.

Likeness:

In his vehicle mode, Storm Jet appears as a futuristic, swing-wing aircraft, one of somewhat alien design that is composed of primarily white steel, with red and black trim. In his humanoid and hover modes, however, Storm Jet appears to be a robot built from red, black, and white aircraft parts.

Personality:

Storm Jet is something of a firecracker, having quite the temper once he's properly agitated. Of course, he usually reins in said temper while on the job, as he's usually assigned to reconnaissance missions - and is all professional while on the job, refusing to shirk his duty.

Real Name: Storm Jet
Occupation: Autobot warrior
Legal Status: citizen of Cybertron with no known criminal record on earth
Marital Status: inapplicable
Alias(es), if any: none
Group Affiliation: the Autobots

Height: 18' (approximately)
Hair: inapplicable
Eyes: red

Other Distinguishing Characteristics: Storm Jet is composed of a strong alien metal that is white and red in hue (with black trim). In his humanoid and hover modes, his wing surfaces present various protrusions that give him a rather menacing appearance despite his allegiance.

Story:

As were Skid-Z and Tow-Line before him, Storm Jet is a late arrival on earth, apparently having come at the request of his earth-bound allies to help them to head off the Predacon onslaught on that world. In fact, he showed up towards the end of the Cybertronian conflict on earth.

This may be why he did not bother to adopt an earth-based form for his vehicle mode; you see, unlike most of his fellows, Storm Jet maintains his primary, Cybertronian configuration. This does not affect the Autobots' mission all that much, however, for humans are unlikely to spot him.

You see, Storm Jet primarily uses his impressive, otherworldly abilities in reconnaissance missions, flying well above the visual range of both humans and Cybertronians in order to figure out just what Megatron's goons are up to. Of course, that's not all he does on earth, mind you.

You see, he delights in putting various Decepticon aircraft in their place, chasing down those who believe they're faster than he is - and dropping them... hard. As you can guess, this hasn't made him a friend of Skyfire and Wind Sheer, the Decepticon fighter jets active on earth.

Not that this matters all that much, of course, for shortly after his arrival on earth, the Autobots ultimately succeeded in ending the threat their evil cousins posed on earth. Once this was done, Storm Jet returned to the world (and possibly the era) of his birth along with his many fellows.
