TF: Palooka Reference by Jenksss TF: Palooka Reference by Jenksss

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.


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

xDD Oh god that would end badly. Yes for Paloo's sake, I hope that whoever he obsesses over isn't someone who would destroy him.
