TF: Palooka Reference by Jenksss TF: Palooka Reference by Jenksss
:icondecepticon-nation:

Meet Palooka! Your friendly neighborhood kleptomaniac. :la:
He's holding "credits" cards (for some reason I would think TFs would use those to hold their currency) and other things he's stolen from random mechs.

Profile

Designation: Palooka.
Appearance: Look up.
Alt Mode: [link]
Universe: G1/Comics. (Sort of comics?)
Primary Class Function: Tactician.
Secondary Class Function: Communication.
Subroutine Function: Swindler. He will sell what he steals to his comrades. This could be especially useful to engineers who want to build off of a specific weapon. Or if a scientist needs a certain item. Whatever it is, Paloo probably has it.
Personality: Still working his bugs out. But Palooka is fairly happy-go-lucky for a Decepticon. While his parents were both alive they were quite rich, and in return spoiled Paloo rotten. He didn't grow up being a brat (kind of) but he was used to getting anything his little spark desired. This gave him the quirk of being obsessive. He gets VERY clingy to things, but it can range from a rock on the ground to another Transformer. His pattern of obsessions is quite sporadic and unpredictable.
Following along, his life was turned upside down when the 'Cons started their attacks on Iacon. His parents were caught in the blast and he, being just one of those lucky lil bastards, survived. He was recruited into the 'Cons shortly after with the empty promise of "obtaining anything he could ever so desire". He joined without a seconds thought. Though he had cared for his parents, he wasn't exactly attached. Typical rich kid relationship with the parents, lets say. Moving along in life, he found out that he wasn't getting "everything he could ever so desire" and that leads up to his next quirk; kleptomania. Yes Paloo has very sticky fingers.
This fits in well with his obsessive compulsion as he's able to steal things he wants quite easily. He would actually make a good spy, hence his secondary class being in communications (when secondary classes become available).
He doesn't just steal to fill his compulsive needs, sometimes he can't even help what he steals. His mind sometimes just makes him. But on the side he also sells what it is he steals. Slowly he's making himself quite wealthy under everyone's noses.
Short version; he's a obsessive compulsive thief that's fairly laid back with his life. He has a childish streak when things don't go his way on account of growing up spoiled, and he often presses the wrong buttons or makes the jokes that just SHOULDN'T be said.
Reason for Joining: Kind of already explained. But because he was so used to getting everything he wanted, his greed kicked in when he was promised everything he could ever desire. Thinking only for himself in that instant he joined without a seconds thought. Ever since that he's been devoted to the Decepticon cause for personal gain.
Other: -Palooka has both kleptomania and obsessive compulsive disorder.
-Being that he's obsessive, he's easily drawn into indulgences such as drugs. He has a fairly good cap on it, but it does tend to get out of hand at times.
-He ONLY stands on his toes. Never on his whole foot!
-He doesn't understand his name either. Really.
-He doesn't carry around weapons, and fights hand-to-hand styled. Which is ironic if you look up the meaning of his name.
-His body is quite magnetic (this is basically his "special power"), though it's in his control, so his "element" (if you will) is magnetism. He can bend and move metals at will. He's basically a Transformers Magneto.
-He's super conductive, therefore he's terrified of storms and lightning based attacks/weapons etc.
-He has a Trinidad/Jamaican accent.

Let me know if anything needs to be changed to fit better. :]

You know, I can actually see him tackle-glomping the con he becomes attached to/obsessive over. XD Hope he doesn't start obsessing over Megatron. XD

Crikey that sucks that that got deleted, dude. D: I think I would have stomped on babies if that happened. I just get so pissed when files are gone or lost...god when my computer crashed a bit ago and I lost everything I just wanted to stab baby ducks and..I don't know..other cute farm animals. |U

Orly? I'll probably be on AIM later. I got homework I should beast through right now though, or try to. AKA writing poetry and doing 2 econ papers. Yayyy. /wrist

Yeah. I forgot to save it before I deactivated my other account, so... it's basically my fault :c but I'll just do another, better one of him! -nods- Dude, I feel your pain. Loosing everything sucks donkey balls D: I would go around and cause a havoc if that happened fff.

Yarly. Sig told me you don't like MSN because of some people, so I decided getting AIM instead even though it's fugly and makes annoying sounds LOL.
Allright, that's fine. The important stuff first <3 I'll be on for another 3 hours, then my mom comes back and I have to go D:

*Squeals* Do you prefer roleplaying with anybody? I would really like to try out a Transformer slashy role-play unless you prefer to do it with close friends.

Jenksss Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Oh no I'm pretty much cool with rping with anyone. It's a nice way to meet people. :]
Slashy sounds nice<3 Original characters or canon characters? Or both? xD

:iconladyredvelvet:
ladyredvelvet Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2010
Awesome ^^ If you need me to send you a paragraph or who's it not so that you can see how I role-play I don't mind. ^^

I can do both if you wish ^^, my original character may be a little...Different looking. (He is a little mix matched ^^)

I can do canon, there are a few characters I know from TFA and G1, those are the only continuties I know but a little woozey on them.

What do you prefer?

:iconjenksss:
Jenksss Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Just so long as I can tell what you're writing, and judging by how you're typing right now you've got a better grasp on grammar than most people. :3 So I'm not so much worried about that at all.

Mix matched? :0
I've got some pretty jacked OCs myself. But explain. xD I'm curious now.

TFA and G1 are perfectly fine and by far my favorite anyway. So I'm fine with that, whichever one you feel more comfortable with. I've RPed them both multiple times and even some crossovers so I'm pretty familiar with the characters.

I guess I didn't answer your question on what I prefer but I'm so not picky when it comes to these sorts of things.
