Name: Skyfire (G1 Cartoon)
*Note* Has wound up being somewhat AU. and has a rather blended history, with minor bits of info and ideas taken from the Tf comics by Marvel and a bits and pieces from Dreamwave and IDW as well.

Affiliation: Autobot
Primary Function: Scientist

Abilities: Skyfire is extremely intelligent, with extensive training in aerodynamics and weapons technology. He is one of the best flyers and pilots among the Autobots. In jet mode, can fly halfway around the world in 3.61 breems in the atmosphere. With his booster pack fully charged, subject can reach escape velocity and travel between planets. He is armed with two dual particle cannon turrets and heat-seeking proton missiles in this mode. In robot mode, he's one of the few Autobots who can fly. He is armed with a double-barreled particle cannon in this mode.

History: A brilliant scientist on Cybertron, Skyfire embarked on a mission to investigate an unknown planet (Earth) with his friend and fellow scientist Starscream. A blizzard caused them to lose flight control and Skyfire slammed into the arctic and lost function. Starscream was able to regain control and searched for his comrade until he had to return to Cybertron. Millions of years later the Decepticons discover Skyfire and revive him. Skyfire joined them due to his past friendship with Starscream, though he expressed discomfort with their methods. When Skyfire's compassion for humans and, later on, several Autobot prisoners led to his disobeying orders, Starscream, who had changed much in the intervening millennia, turned on his friend. Skyfire left the Decepticons and joined the Autobots, sacrificing himself to be buried beneath the ice again to stop the Decepticons' plans.

The Autobots returned later to dig him up when they needed a ride down to South America. Megatron and his Decepticons were in Peru seeking the Crystal of Power, which was kept in an Incan temple.

As the old adage goes, do something right once, and it's your job. From then on, Skyfire's only apparent duty was to shuttle the Autobots around Earth.
At one point, Optimus Prime actually pats Skyfire on his jet mode's nosecone, like a dog. Sucks to be Skyfire.

About scale: Since the animation in the cartoon is inconsistent in scale there are two possible sizes for Skyfire. This is as close as I can get to figuring out the scale.
Skyfire Scale
Approximate size in robot mode in most shots.
2: Is the best guess I have for how big he would be to have a large enough alt mode to carry other 'bots. Might still be too small.

For the sake of Rp, he will be about 32-33 feet tall(#1).

Skyfire's Holo-matter Avatar *Skyfire having a holo has no basis in canon. Made for RP use only.*

Aprox 7 feet tall, somewhat lanky but still has decent muscle tone
slightly pale
looks to be in about his early to mid thirtys
Bright blue eyes that appear to glow from behind, normally wears gold wire rimmed glasses.
Shoulder length white hair with a blue stripe down the center of his head and blue bangs.Tied in a low ponytail at the base of his neck. (If the hair were to be cut short the hair would mimic his helm in color placement)
Often wears a red sweater/shirt, blue dress pants and a white lab coat.

*The Mun is currently seeking someone to draw a picture(s) of his avatar. Pictures will come eventually.*
