Profile[edit source]

Darkstar is a member of the aerospace division of the Decepticons. He stands under Megatron's leadership, and time spent with many former gladiators and Cybertronians of many walks of life has sharply increased his competitive nature. He was once a deep space operative meant for both short and long range escort, defense, and blitzkrieg attack missions who the Decepticons have had many uses for during their campaign for freedom and equality. He presently acts as escort for energon mining, repair and resupply operations, a bodyguard for envoys sent to court potential allies within the stars, and a guardian of Decepticon interests at home and throughout the cosmos. Having no true friends but interests he will sooner leave a distressed comrade to burn than waste an opportunity for personal glory unless the glory itself is a side effect of heroics. His chief driving force is his lust for glory, and this vice leads him to occasionally bully others in an attempt to draw them into fights or other forms of competitive sport to both test and affirm his greatness. He is loyal to The Cause, and there is much glory to be had as a champion of the Decepticon ideals.

Background[edit source]

The Primal Vanguard was Darkstar's home, his life, his everything. Hailed as a 'rising star' of the armed forces of Cybertron he won many merits for marksmanship and endurance; he and his comrades were also responsible for setting records and received a number of accolades for excellence as a training unit. Darkstar had the fortune of being a military spacefaring alt-mode, and so it was the black of space that would be his Fate under the law of functionalism. Being away from Cybertron for tours of significant length was what he was made for, but as resources were cut back, escort missions grew longer and longer, and increasingly reduced time was allotted for leave it was only a matter of time before Darkstar would become taxed beyond reason. Despite a number of requests for relief he found that he was routinely exploited, and forced to carry out a revolving door of missions beyond reason. The injustice came to a final head when a first contact situation involving Darkstar and a diplomatic envoy ended in an exchange of fire due to a combination of being surprised by the alien vessel's sudden appearance within weapons range and fatigue, which lead to his neglect of first contact protocols. Though the skirmish resulted in zero casualties and the alien vessel disappeared into the darkness, Darkstar was harshly reprimanded for neglecting to hold his fire until fired upon. Citing the lack of resupply, the extreme fatigue and lack of relief, as well as the element of surprise that led to the incident Darkstar and his representation argued a strong case. In the final assessment that his actions may have led to the incitement of an intergalactic war the court ruled against him. The final decision was to relieve him of his status and place him on a discharge list. Enraged by what he perceived to be an extremely unfair decision Darkstar would stew for some time over the callousness of the court and their disregard for his service record of near perfection.

Megatron spoke more eloquently than he ever could on the injustices of the Senate, and Darkstar was quickly seduced by the great vision having nothing better to do than court his growing disdain for his government. A system that freed the denizens of Cybertron from the bonds of their alt-modes, a people free to choose their fate rather than be handed it was an easy sell for the once praised but suddenly disgraced soldier. Under Megatron’s leadership Darkstar’s sense of self grew exponentially, and he cared more about himself and his duty to excel in his proper role than ever before. Always eager to compete with others, he found himself quickly at home with many of the ex-gladiators that had aligned with Megatron's vision. The Decepticons had little room for the pettiness, the nitpicking, and the tyranny of the Senate and their stooges like his former comrades in the Primal Vanguard.

More recently Darkstar found himself teleported to an alternate universe via an anomaly in deep space that stripped him of his memories. In this alternate reality the Decepticon and Autobot conflict had temporarily ended in a Decepticon victory, and Megatron was elected Supreme Chancellor of the New Cybertronian Senate. He served his new Supreme Chancellor as an Autobot, and battled against the separatist movement that took up the mantle as the new Decepticon Alliance, which chose the name to spite the Supreme Chancellor and his loyalists given that Megatron and many of his followers had once called themselves Decepticons and rebelled for similar reasons. A twist of Fate would eventually see Darkstar returned to his original reality, where he faithfully continues his existence as a champion of the Decepticons yet again.

Skills & Abilities[edit source]

Knowledge: Deep Space Navigation. Ability in path-finding and orientation in space, and other environments is above average.

Knowledge: Deep Space Survival. His ability to survive the rigors of space and the unknown for extended periods of time without resupply is above average.

Training: Protocol and Combat Training. Forged with specific purpose he is designed for battle, and has received top military training as a former member of the Primal Vanguard from the moment of his creation.

Weaknesses[edit source]

Psychopath. Darkstar does not care for anything but the glory of Darkstar, and forwarding The Cause. As a result he can lose allies or social advantages in an instant due to sudden callousness or opportunism for the sake of victory.

Egocentric. Darkstar is tremendously egocentric. He thinks that he can take on any challenge, and can find himself in compromising situations easily avoided by others. This manifests most often in his 'high risk/high reward' combat style.

Liability. Because of his psychopathic and egocentric tendencies he is often regarded as being dangerous to more complex coordinated team maneuvers. Even while typically observant of the proper chain of command he is known to go rogue in the absence of handlers. His high standards for glory also manifests as a reluctance for or outright avoidance of entering into combat with weaker foes.
