Profile[edit source]

Prowl served as second-in-command to both Sentinel and Zeta Prime, and now occupies the same position under Optimus. Once the highest-ranking police officer on the planet, he is now leading the Autobots' Intelligence Division, as well as serving as the new Primes chief military advisor. Having hailed from a strongly Functionist community, Prowl learned early on the value of respecting the rules in order to prevent chaos from destroying all. His intellect is rivaled only by the best, and his arsenal and combat prowess are well-suited to someone of his rank.

Background[edit source]

Prowl learned to respect the rules during early years spent in the strictly Functionist town of Petrex. He joined the Iaconian Mechaforensic Division as a detective, where he worked with his partner Tumbler until shortly after the death of Nominus Prime. It was during this time that he met Orion Pax, a fellow police officer who sent he and Tumbler to investigate a Relinquishment Clinic. Following the investigation, Pax told Prowl and Tumbler that he believed the Senate was using the clinics to brainwash Decepticons, but Prowl dismissed the idea as a far-fetched conspiracy theory and refused to have any part in Pax's plans to put an end to the government's heinous orchestrations to silence anyone who opposed them. Tumbler, however, agreed to help Pax, and the two of them parted ways, with Prowl joining Security Forces under the new Prime, Sentinel. Prowl continued in the service of the Primes, until he learned that Zeta Prime had been using a torturous device he called the vamparc ribbon to drain Nyonian citizens and power his war machines. Prowl joined forces with Pax and Megatron to overthrow the Senate and kill Zeta Prime, but was captured when the Decepticon leader betrayed Pax. However, he managed to escape from prison and find Pax, who had obtained the Matrix of Leadership and taken the mantle of Prime. Orion Pax, now Optimus Prime, rallied the scattered Autobot forces to his side and led them in battle against the Decepticons, who were defeated and driven out of Iacon. After the battle, Prowl showed Optimus a stockpile of illegal weaponry that the Senate had been keeping hidden in the Undergrid, revealing that the vamparc ribbon had only been the tip of the iceberg. He suggested that Optimus use them to end the Decepticons quickly, but Prime refused, ordering them destroyed instead. Prowl appeared to comply, but knowing him...did he really?

Skills & Abilities[edit source]

Tactical Expertise: Prowl is a tactical genius. His expertise in military tactics is rivaled only by the best. Logical minds such as his are often excellent at crafting strategy, and Prowl is no exception. In nearly any battle situation, he can predict the enemy's moves, and quickly come up with a carefully considered and completely logically sound strategy to get the primary objective accomplished at minimal cost. This is likely the reason why he rose so quickly through the ranks of Sentinel Prime's forces, and why he still remains in the upper echelons of Autobot command--he's just that good.


Missile Launchers: Prowl sports twin shoulder-mounted missile launchers capable of firing long-range explosive projectiles guided by his own targeting algorithms. This ability becomes useful when a distant target needs to be taken out, but is limited by ammunition capacity.


Manipulation: As he is a tactical genius on the battlefield, Prowl is also a tactical genius in manipulation. As he can devise the perfect strategies to maximize the chances of a military victory whilst minimizing the casualties, he is also excellent at devising strategies to manipulate others by predicting their reactions and behavior and then presenting the appropriate cues to cause them to act exactly as he wanted them to. He frequently makes use of this in order to accomplish his own ends, which he is convinced are fully aligned with the Autobot cause. His often laconic manner and lack of emotional expression make it difficult to know exactly what he is truly up to at any given moment.

Weaknesses[edit source]

Anti-Social: Prowl is certainly not the friendly sort, preferring to avoid idle chatter or any social interaction he regards as pointless or non-productive. This makes it rather difficult to get to know him, and thus difficult to like or respect him--which is not very good for morale, given his position of leadership in the Autobot military.


Logical to a Fault: Prowl is incredibly logical and structured, to a point that he has a difficult time comprehending the illogical and spontaneous. To him, -everything- must have a natural explanation that is consistent with the physical laws of the universe. Everything must have a reason. In fact, he's so good at predicting things that the possibility of something completely outside of his calculations happening doesn't even occur to him. As such, when something inexplicable happens, it may leave him confused and disoriented.


Cold and Calculating: Prowl is a difficult person to like, as already mentioned. But, this is not without good reason. He has a hard time actually treating people like people, instead viewing them as pawns or tools in the grand scheme of things. Thus, he has no qualms about putting others he's determined are expendable at risk for the sake of something he thinks is more important than the life of the individual in question. He is also rather stubborn, and is not likely to listen to another's point of view if it contradicts his own. Even if told "no" by the Prime himself, he is likely to carry on anyway without Optimus' knowledge (IC knowledge, but of course I will make sure everyone is fully OOCly informed of what I have planned). This sometimes leads his peers, underlings, and superiors to question his integrity, which often leads to heated disagreements and dissention among the ranks.


Borderline OCD: Prowl's many schemes and orchestrations shed light on his almost compulsive need to take control of every situation he encounters. It's not too often that he finds himself in a situation that is completely out of control, but when he does, it can cause him to become angry and over-anxious. On the one hand, this helps make him as good as he is at his job. But on the other, it also keeps him from being able to relax most of the time, which in turn leads to workaholism and the physical stresses that go along with it.
