Comic Characters

    Hot Shot
The main character of the comic, a young bot with pyrokinetic powers.

    Star Convoy
Holder of Prima's Matrix of Light, Star Convoy is the most famous of the Autobots.
  • Expy: A fairly obvious one of All Might. Barring his glowing eyes, silver skin, and truck-like exterior, he's a dead ringer for the Symbol of Peace. Very likely fulfils a similar role in the comic, but at least one of the RP characters doesn't have much of a high opinion on him.

A student who gets beat up. A lot. It's as if the universe demands it.
  • Butt-Monkey: A lot of humor from him involves Wasp getting hurt in some way or another.

Roleplay Main Characters:

Played by: Dropkick

One of the students at the academy, Longshot is witty, sarcastic, and never misses his shots. Currently very chummy with Saber.

  • Accidental Misnaming: Sometimes is called "Dropshot" by some, and humorously called "Shortshot" by Rook.
  • The Ace: Has perfect aim, seeing as all the shots fired by him never miss.
  • Berserk Button: Comparing him to someone who Longshot views in a negative light will definitely tick him off.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He apparently has a custom Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, a shoulder-cannon, and a grapple gun attached to said shoulder-cannon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Is very snarky, and has gotten on the nerves of the teachers.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: He honestly doesn't want to be at the Academy. Averted by the time the school days come around.

Played by: Vaterian

Another student of the academy, Aranea has a very troubled past, and not so loving parents. She isn't very social, and her mind-reading capabilities definitely don't help her in the "social" category.

  • Berserk Button: Threaten her in any way, or mention her parents, and she will firmly kick your ass.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: While not really a battle, she does hand Circuit his ass on a finely tuned silver platter.

Played by: G2 Superion is Fabulous

A not so honest bot, with the power of persuasion, Circuit lives in the moral grey zone. He loves to swindle people, but his greed gets the better of him at times.

  • Dirty Coward: Whenever he's in a pickle, he's prone to try and convince his enemy to not fight, blackmail, or just plain runaway from fights.
  • Handicapped Badass: Despite him not being able to transform, he's still got some good persuasion skills.
  • Sequel Nonentity: He doesn't show up in The Festival of Stars. Odd, as his player did return and used all of his other previous minor characters.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Yeah, when your powers require people to trust you, acting generally untrustworthy isn't a good idea.

Played by: TF Rocks

Saber is a bit of an egotistical mech, but he has a good heart. Currently very chummy with Longshot.

Played by: GogoDG

A student at the Academy with a talent that never goes his way. Misfire was the indirect cause of his mother's death, which broke him.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In canon, Misfire's a Decepticon. Here, he's training to be an Autobot.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He really got hit hard in the parents department. He accidentally killed his mom, and who knows where his dad is, leaving poor Misfire living alone in the alleyways.
  • Heartbroken Badass: His mother's death really hit him hard. Alongside that, he blames himself for anything if it seems like it killed someone.
  • The Load: He feels like he is this to the others because he feels he is not that useful.
  • Power Incontinence: He has the power to manipulate energy, and shoot large orbs of plasma, but he cannot control where it goes, or where it comes from.

Played by: Olymprix

A student at the academy, Ironfist has the talent of Hard-Light construction, and is a fanboy of everything. He loves everything to deal with ancient or awe-inspiring bots who have done many heroics in their past. Secretly writes things under the name "Fisitron".

  • Crouching Moron Hidden Bad Ass: Ironfist is very much the weakest of the bunch, and not really fit, seeing as he's wheezing during the forest trial, but he has some incredible powers, and quite the knowledge bank.
  • Fanboy: Ironfist is quite the fanboy of many things.

Played by: Mgerth

A student at the academy, Not much can be said about Wheeljack except that he understands how to make things go BOOM.

  • Demoted to Extra: Doesn't really get much action out in the academy. Could be due to inactive player.

Played by: Devaron9

Hosehead is the all-loving, friendly student at the Autobot academy. He tries to be friendly with everyone, and loves to have friends at his back, although he's a little more cautious about rules.

  • Rules Lawyer: Always wants to follow the rules down to the wire.

    Mach Dart
Played by: TF Rocks

A shy bot with a dark past. Mach Dart has the power of infiltration, and is useful in espionage.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Is the result of an emergency bondage between two brothers.
  • The Sneaky Guy: Can use his abilities to perform sabotage, sneak-attack, or spy on enemies.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: From what's been observed, Mach Dart's "infiltration" talent consists only of changing his faction symbol. While theoretically useful in espionage, the one time he uses it reveals a pretty obvious problem: his opponents know he's not on their side and attack him immediately.

Played by: Devaron9

A somewhat twisted student at the academy, can create shells of an organic bat-monster thingy.

  • Instant Armor: His talent. He can grow an organic bat pretender shell around himself at will.
  • The Prankster: Loves to pull pranks, and loves using that Organic shell of his to mess with people.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: He can also blow up his pretender shells at will.
  • Training Dummy: Was put into this position at one point by the Rainmakers. He gets better.

Played by: Omnidrive

A detatched pyronetic who is not to good with socializing with people.

Played by: Omnidrive

Buster is a friendly bot, and a student at the academy. He can coat himself in armor, and make himself a cybertronian wall.

  • Actor Existence Limbo: Could be due to other events that the Player has to deal with, but Fuego and Buster rarely ever show up.
  • Chrome Champion: His talent. He can coat himself in a layer of armor durable enough to crack Rollout's armor when he gets punched by him.
  • Dumb Muscle: By his own admission he's tough, but not very bright.

Played by: Artork312

A shy, and nervous cadet at the academy with the power to freeze things with just a touch.

Roleplay Side Characters:

Played by: GingaMagnus

Sideways is very confusing. No one knows whose side he is on, who he is, or what he wants. His own goals are very obscure, and unknown.

  • Noodle Incident: Probably had this happen to him. He never takes off his Visor, nor has he shown anyone what his actual face looks like.
  • Power Copying: His talent. He can absorb two powers at a time and his appearance changes to resemble who he got them from.

Played by: Artork312

Ramjet is a headstrong and pretty much nuts bot, but he has a good heart, and because of it the conehead's always wanting to help others, often to his own detriment.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In canon, Ramjet's a Decepticon thug. Here, he's training to be an Autobot and acts as a vigilante hero.
  • Dumb Is Good: While not dumb, his combat strategy of "Shoot everything, everywhere" definitely counts as this.
  • Loon with a Heart of Gold: He acts crazy, wears outlandish costumes and his manners make people think of him as a dangerous lunatic, yet he's one of the kindest bots in the Academy, desiring to be a hero for the sake of doing good, even if it may backfire on him.
  • Second Super-Identity: In addition to officially enrolling into Autobot Academy to become a hero, Ramjet also wears the guise of "Jetman", a vigilante who acts much more seriously than he himself normally does.

Played by: GogoDG

A student with the power to understand anything technologically, although he desperately wants to be popular among the lower-classmen.

  • Gadgeteer Genius: He can create a Sniper Rifle that automatically shoots targets for him, with 100% accuracy, with only a Sniper-Rifle and some scrap-metal. Sheesh.

Played by: Dropkick

Roadblock is a serious, but fun-loving bot who can manipulate earth, and loves to have a good, fair race. Hates bad-sportsmanship, and illegal moves.

  • Dishing Out Dirt: His talent. He levitates rocks to add a challenge to the freshmen's first test and uses chunks of the arena to go after Getaway.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Almost makes the entire arena of the academy fall, just to try and catch Getaway.


    Fortress Maximus

Fortress Maximus is the principal of Autobot Academy, and is a very strict, but also a little relaxed at being principal.

  • Cool Old Guy: He is old, but he is definitely an intimidating figure.
  • Retired Badass: Not entirely, but being the former prison warden of Garrus-9 counts as this. If that's not badass, than him being current principal is.

Played by: Artork312

Rook is a strong and dependable war veteran, who can be very strict on his students at times, but he swears it's for their benefit.

  • Good Is Not Dumb: Despite his stature saying that he would be dumb, he is most definitely not.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: He may not show that, but Rook genuinely cares enough about the welfare of his students to provide them help when needed.
  • Stronger with Age: He is very experienced and strong, fitting for an ex-member of the Astro Marines Corps.

Played by: Dropkick

Another teacher at the academy, he's a fairly new teacher, and pretty hotheaded, but genuinely cares about his students as if they were his teammates or friends.
