|“||Like, I'll be there in a sec... I'm chatting on the commnet with someone...||”|
The main character flaw of HURRICANE has to be the time she wastes chattering. A bit of a Valley girl, she can usually be found playing with her communications equipment, accessing chat lines, the Internet, or anything else she can find a way into which to hack or uplink. As the Weatherbots' communications expert, her abilities are necessary for the team to work properly in the field, which is why it is often a source of great annoyance for the others as they try to get her to cease her constant chatting. She isn't fond of combat, and would prefer to stay home and chat with all her friends from around the world than go out and do things that might require work. She tries to make up for this with her infectiously cheerful personality. She transforms into a Land Rover Discovery. Sometimes considered the 'twin' of Typhoon, she and her 'sister' are both are Land Rovers of nearly identical design. Built to withstand powerful coastal storms, Hurricane is heavily armored, with a specially modified suspension. She is armed with a whirlwind gun in robot mode, as well as a standard Weatherbot laser pistol. In truck mode, she is equipped with a ram plate and a towing winch. Her vehicle form is also armed with a top-mounted rocket launcher. As left leg/foot module, she merges with the other Weatherbots to form F-5. Her unwillingness to ever leave the Comm Tower sometimes impedes her relationship with her Weatherbots sisters.
In 2014, First Aid was able to reverse the effects of the Dweller virus on the Weatherbots, using a modified version of the cure developed by Jetfire and Starscream.
Hurricane is the physical twin of Typhoon, although their personalities are very different. When she was first built she had a long trailer, but she was later rebuilt without the trailer, sacrificing some mass in exchange for greater maneuverability.
