Raindance is a daredevil photojournalist who'll risk anything to capture a great picture. Witty and likable, he has seen thousands of battles and has thousands of war stories that he's more than happy to share. His lively and exciting narratives never fail to entertain his listeners. Raindance wants to use his position as a video reporter to make himself an intergalactic star of the Autobot/Decepticon war. He’s constantly irritated that he can’t be in the shots he takes of whatever story he’s covering. His partner Grand Slam is greatly agitated by Raindance’s lack of objectivity and by his willingness to interfere in battle when covering stories, while Raindance is frustrated by the elder reporter’s strict code of journalistic ethics. Despite his thrill-seeking and self-glorifying tendencies, Raindance is a dedicated reporter who will take any risk to record the best images of an event. He’s glib, funny, and popular. Grand Slam just wishes Raindance would stop looking at war as a vehicle for stardom and start treating it with more dignity.
Raindance has above-average intelligence and an exceptional skill at photography and cinematography. In jet mode, he’s got excellent maneuverability and can reach speeds of 300 mph for 150 miles. He is also equipped with anti-gravity projectors that allow him to hover. He’s armed with two air-to-air proton missiles, which are ostensibly only for self-defense. However, Raindance’s jet mode is awkward to use in normal circumstances and has very low strength. He’s capable of recording up to .24 vorns of images.
