HOTSPARK - 'If you can't stand the heat, you're about to have a really bad day.'


SUBGROUP: Gemmaster
FUNCTION: Flamethrower

Formerly a slave in the hidden Decepticon pits of Cybertron, Hotspark managed to escape with Bulldozer and spent a brief time with the Autobots. Quickly realizing it wasn't for them, they left and embarked on a career as hired guns. He is friendly and generally well tempered, but can be lethal when crossed. While he enjoys combat, he doesn't actively seek it out, which makes others within Guardian Corps wonder why he bothered signing on with them. Hotspark could almost be a berserker when in battle, and many find themselves dodging his blasts just as much as the enemies. His Gemmaster partner, Firestone, is highly patient and a master Shaman of the Flame. His discipline, skills and wisdom greatly aid in bringing balance to both the aggressive and passive natures of Hotspark.

In robot mode, Hotspark is armed with a magmacannon that can reduce almost anything to slag. In dragon mode, Hotspark can shoot fire from his mouth, and it is just as lethal as that from his gun. Hotspark is impervious to any type of high temperature attack, as such, most conventional energy weapons have little effect on him. Augmented by Firestone and the elemental powers he enhances, the pair become an unstoppable firestorm capable of almost anything.

Hotspark is not greatly agile, and is particularly cumbersome in dragon form. This is a hazard when opponents realize that missiles are best used against him. Hotspark's armor is not that thick, so an onslaught of missiles would cause him serious harm. He doesn't often think of himself as having much worth, and can sometimes be found feeling depressed.
