Origin:

Movor is, like other Decepticons, an electromechanical entity hailing from Cybertron - possibly the Cybertron of another era or even a variant time line. He is an evil robot that strives to conquer the universe alongside his fellows, and wages war to achieve this goal.

Known Powers:

Cybertronian Physique: Movor is a robotic entity of Cybertronian design and origin. As such, this astromechanical warrior has, by his very nature, the use of a large variety of abilities that reflect this. His very body gives Movor these super human powers:

* Body Armor: like most Cybertronians, Movor was formed with a reinforced steel frame, one that offers him rank value 10 resistance to injury. This makes him immune to most basic human attack forms, and moderately resistant to his fellow robots. His defense breaks down as follows:

RV 10 / RV 4 / RV 0 / RV 0 / RV 0

* Growth: Cybertronians come in all manner of sizes, few of which align with the human norm. Movor, for instance, normally stands at around twelve feet tall in his humanoid mode, which grants him this power at rank value 4 as a general matter of course.

As such, this spatial scout 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: while all Transformers possess these powers, Movor has them in a much more extensive, rank value 6 capacity. He can resolve objects as far away as the earth's surface with ease, from orbit, or view objects too small for the human eye to detect.

* Radio Transceiver: as are most Transformers on earth, Movor is equipped with an audio / video transmission system. This communications rig allows him instant contact with any other Cybertronians within his line of sight, having rank value 75 range (10,000 miles).

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

Camouflage System: all the Combatrons have a specialized camouflage system that they can use to blend into various environments (such as Arctic tundra, or desert sands). This system works at rank value 2, giving them camouflage patterns appropriate to the background at hand.

Flight: having the highest level of power output among all the Decepticons, Movor has the ability to fly at astounding speeds. Functioning at rank value 100, this power lets Movor fly at 600 mph in the atmosphere, or 150,000 mph in space (far in excess of escape velocity).

Gestalt: using this special power, Movor can combine his physical form with that of his fellow Combatrons. Working at rank value 40, this ability can be used to create the ultra-powerful Ruination, one of the Decepticons' most powerful operatives!

Resistance to Cold, Fire and Heat Attacks: built to function normally in the depths of space, Movor is heavily shielded against variations in temperature. As such, he has rank value 150 resistance to any attack form that does damage in the form of intense cold, fire, or heat.

Shape Change: Movor has the power to transform his humanoid form into that of a space shuttle, if admittedly a scaled down one; it's only slightly larger than the vehicle forms of the other Combatrons. Movor's shuttle form has the following capabilities:

Limitations / Enhancements:

(none)

Equipment:

Laser Pistol: his primary weapon in his humanoid mode, this weapon can be used to fire a powerful laser at Movor's opponents. Functioning at rank value 10, this firearm inflicts like Armor Piercing Energy damage with each deadly blast - and Movor uses it often in battle.

Moon Lasers: used either in his vehicle mode or mounted on his lower legs in humanoid form, these curiously named weapons fire a beam of colorless white energy at Movor's foes. Whether or not they're cohesive moonlight, they nonetheless inflict rank value 20 Energy damage.

Restraint Shells: equipment that all the Combatrons carry, these shells can be fired from their primary weaponry to capture a foe, rather than kill him outright. Each shell casts an energy net around a foe that restrains him at rank value 30, +1 RS for each additional shell used.

Quirks:

(none)

Skills:

Advanced Guns: as are the other Combatrons, Movor is well-versed in the use of advanced, directed energy weapons. Whether it be a laser pistol, concussion rifle, or even a particle accelerator, Movor can wield it as if his Coordination was +1 RS higher than is listed above.

Astronaut: being built for (very) high flying combat, Movor knows how to truly think in three dimensions during a firefight. As such, he should receive a +1 RS bonus on all combat maneuvers attempted while he's in space, whether or not his other skills back him up.

Military: as are the rest of the Combatrons, Movor is a born and bred warrior. In other words, he knows general military protocols and procedures like the back of his manipulator, and can lead fighting beings into battle when circumstances deem it necessary.

Contacts:

As one of the five Combatrons, Movor can readily rely upon his teammates for assistance - lest they lose the ability to form Ruination. Furthermore, as a Decepticon, he can conceivably rely upon Megatron's motley band of minions of villains for help if necessary.

Likeness:

In his vehicle form, Movor resembles an American space shuttle, with like coloring, though the scale is off; he's only about twelve foot long in this mode. Furthermore, unlike modern shuttles, he's heavily armed. His humanoid form looks like unto a robot built from spare shuttle parts.

Personality:

The loner of the bunch, Movor tends to be a bit less bombastic compared to his Combatron teammates. Sure he's snide and sarcastic when the opportunity arises, but since he spends so much time alone in outer space, this 'bot tends to keep to himself more often than not.

Story:

As were the other Decepticons 'born' on earth, Movor began his existence as an Autobot. Having left Cybertron for earth a good sixty years ago, he and his fellows crash-landed for some unknown reason in the American Midwest, and were only recently unearthed by later Autobot arrivals.

Before they could be properly revived, however, the Cybertronian who would become Movor, along with the other Autobots in stasis aboard his ship, were abducted by Megatron, who had... plans for them. Taking their inert forms to an American military base, he put said plans into motion.

Awakening the sleeping Autobots, he had his Predacon minions force their stasis pods to scan in various martial vehicles in the vicinity. Carrying Movor's stasis pod, Sky-Bite couldn't decide which vehicle to scan in, since all the other 'good' ones had been taken, but fate decided for him.

Tripping and dropping his pod, Sky-Bite almost caused it to scan a nearby eagle, which would've produced another Predacon. However, the scanning beam narrowly missed, striking a heavily armed space shuttle landing nearby, and Megatron then exposed the pod to his Spark.

This combination brought forth Movor, a newly formed Decepticon who could transform into a miniature, military space shuttle himself. Considering his size, it is unknown if he can carry human passengers with him into orbit, but he can still make it there under his own power.

Thanks to this ability, unique among all of Megatron's minions on earth, he could slip into space in order to spy on various situations on the surface. When not on a specific mission for his new boss, Movor would find himself in space keeping an eye out for Autobot activity.

He couldn't always spot them in action, for sometimes they were mobile in areas that he simply couldn't see from his orbital position, but this was nonetheless quite useful. In fact, Movor managed to spot Fortress Maximus' secret hiding place for Megatron on several occasions.

Since this was the main reason that Megatron came to earth in the first place, Megatron was very happy about this. This didn't save Movor from Megatron's wrath once Scourge and Mega-Octane's plan to get rid of Megatron (who had since turned into Galvatron) failed utterly, though.

Fearing their heightened individuality (and the possibility that they may revert to Autobots), Galvatron decided to rid himself of his new Decepticons, and buried them alive when he destroyed a large portion of the Autobots' space bridge network - with the Decepticons inside it!

Despite this, some augmented brainwashing led Movor and his fellows to continue to serve Galvatron to the very end, fighting the Autobots until their leader was finally quashed at the hands of Omega Prime and his Matrix Blade. With this done, Movor and company were incarcerated.

Soon after, Movor was transferred to an asteroid penal colony in the vicinity of Cybertron, where he presumably lies to this very day - unless he (or some other villainous Cybertronian) eventually manages to arrange for his escape.
