|“||The answers are all in the data; one just has to know where to look.||”|
FLOODLIGHT is an intelligence analyst with a unique ability to process vast amounts of data quickly and perceive patterns invisible to the naked optic. The greater the statistical pool, the more accurate her forecasts. Her vast intellect is specialized in the rapid indexing, search and retrieval of discrete information; she also possesses the ability to overwhelm and disrupt lesser systems by flooding them with meaningless torrents of numbers. In robot mode, she carries a small laser pistol, and in hover jet mode she has an undercarriage flame thrower. In both modes she fields powerful searchlights which can be used to find hidden prey or blind enemy combatants. She also has the capability to link to remote communications and to connect fellow operatives for rapid records transfer. She has her limits, however; specialization has left her comparatively untrained and weak in combat and social areas. Nonetheless, she expects cleverness, diligence, and hard work to allow her to achieve and rise in the Decepticon Empire.
- Floodlight is a small, unassuming Decepticon femme. If it wasn't for the purple logo featured prominently in the center of her chest, most people
would never associate her with a faction known for being an "evil empire." Her head seems a little large for her body, and is protected by a bulky blue helmet. Her face is a pale violet, with big crimson optics and a small mouth. Her body is dark blue and slender, with a violet chest plate sporting a large purple Decepticon sigil. Her arms are slim and violet, with little light-purple wings. Her hands are a deep blue matching her frame, ending with long delicate fingers. Her legs are extremely long, with violet thighs and navy blue calves. Her feet are slight and blue, and point downward when she hovers in robot mode. Her overall manner is shy and unassertive, and in a large group of Decepticons she seems to quickly disappear into the background.
Floodlight has been a peon in the Decepticon empire for ages. Built as a walking data processor with a barely social interface, her personality has taking a long time to develop, and there are still vast swatches of social and moral areas into which she’s never ventured. On Cybertron, she worked unmoving for thousands of years, everything shut down but her mind to save energy. She thanklessly shifted though data reports from all over Cybertron, indexing, filing, organizing, and occasionally alerting her superiors if something out of the ordinary emerged from the data-stream.
When contact was established with Earth, she was eventually roused and sent to Decepticon City, where she was mildly pleased to have enough energy to move around again. However, her life has been pretty much the same – process data, day and night. She’s just starting to yearn for something more, and that’s the point she becomes an actual OC instead of an @emitted gumbie.
After toiling in the Intelligence data pits of Trypticon for years, in 2013 Floodlight was sent to Cybertron to collect data on the Cult of Galvatron. There she witnessed the Quintesson assault on Polyhex, and recorded it for the Decepticon archives, which helped identify what happened in the attack.
