"Nothin's ever gotten done from sittin’ on aft."
Outbound began his life as a scavenger, his original vehicle mode having been a hovertruck, while his job on Cybertron before the war involved the appraisal and transportation of new technologies. Outbound has been a member of the Decepticon ranks for many millions of years, however he has spent most of this time in stasis. The reason for this is that it has always proven difficult to keep such a busy-body as he in one place, or to even get him to follow orders and stick to them for an extended period of time- unless they keep him very active. Frustration over this character ‘flaw’ is always eventually and inevitibly overlooked in favor of Outbound’s proven competency both on and off of the field of battle.
Outbound is a go-getter to the core. He abhors sitting idle, actually growing less likable and more difficult to be around the longer that he is forced to do so. Action is his drug, whether that means taking on a routine recon mission without the promise of glorious combat, or tinkering with the latest discarded scraps that were of too low quality for Shockwave’s interest. His favorite hobby is scavenging for discarded and damaged equipment for his own personal use, and he has a great disdain for the ‘short-sighted’ who fail to see the forest for the trees. His weapon of choice is his trusty plasma shotgun, which in his vehicle-mode converts into a devastating plasma turret.
Extremely resourceful, Outbound is capable of adapting very quickly to almost any situation. Above average intelligence and a high technical aptitude make him a particularly dangerous Decepticon. He will use any advantage that he can to gain an upper hand, and is not above scheming against his own faction in order to accomplish his ends. Still, a healthy sense of self-preservation is typically considered before all of his actions. A true Decepticon, Outbound is in it for Number One.Outbound brought Drone-23, a 'SAI' (simple artificial intelligence) drone from the Dyson Ring Scrapyards, back from the scrapheap to serve as his personal slave.
