pleasure with my enemy's pain comes."
A quick glance at Weirdwolf's motto might lead you to
think that it's either a typographical error or this
particular Decepticon has some seriously crossed wires!
We're happy to say that the latter is true. Though
possessing hyper-keen senses and an alert, sharp mind,
Weirdwolf is something of a mess in the neural
department. We all occasionally talk to ourselves, but
the trouble with Weirdwolf is that he does it all the
time. And in an uncomfortably loud, sing-song backward
way. "Destroy the Autobots I shall. Rip their faces
off how nice it would be." and so on. This habit
doesn't impair Weirdwolf's abilities. He's cruel, vicious
and incredibly deadly. But it does unsettle his fellow
Decepticons, especially in the midst of a tense battle.
Weirdwolf is binary-bonded to Monzo, a brutish
Weirdwolf was lacking anything in the sadistic department
before, his Nebulan partner more than makes up for it.
The two are ideally matched, delighting in the pain and
carnage they deal out with savage abandon. These two like
minds, constantly seeking the thrill of combat, have no
room left for fear, making Weirdwolf a warrior without
compare. The only trouble is, as Headmaster, the internal
conversations are sometimes three-way!
Though in robot mode Weirdwolf wields a photon pistol
(firing high frequency energy particles) and a thermal
sword (capable of cutting through steel three inches
thick), he tends to rely heavily on hand-to-hand combat.
Although he strenuously denies it, it is widely assumed
that this is Monzo, unable to forget his time as a
professional hyperwrestler, exerting a controlling
influence on the shared mind. Weirdwolf doesn't care. Up
close suits him just fine, because it enables him to
switch to wolf mode and use his tungsten-tipped claws on
hapless Autobots. In this form, Weirdwolf comes equipped
with nose module tracking sensors, capable of reading
smell, infrared heat images and air current patterns. He
can leap eight miles in a single bound.
Weirdwolf's crossed mental wires can sometimes ruin an
otherwise faultlessly silent approach. Just when he's
ready to pounce on the unsuspecting Autobot he's been
tracking for the last twenty miles or so, he'll open his
mouth and say "die you now!" and ruin the whole
thing! It's become so like thinking to Weirdwolf, he
doesn't realize he's speaking aloud.
