Personal Profile: Skywarp was one of the three original Seekers introduced in the first year of Transformers. He was partnered with Thundercracker and Starscream, but Starscream was always the one Seeker that was in the limelight. Skywarp and Thundercracker were happy with their roles in the Decepticon army and weren’t ones to question Megatron’s authority. Skywarp had the unique ability to be able to teleport his body from one place to another. It was a very effective manoeuvre when he was fighting Autobots.

Cartoon Bio: Skywarp was with Megatron and the other Decepticons when they attacked the Ark and crashed in it. It is unknown when he was created and when he joined the Decepticons, but there is evidence to suggest that he was around as far back as when the Decepticons were fighting the Guardian robots. When the volcano on Earth erupted, it awoke Teletran 1 and Skywarp was the first Decepticon to be reactivated. Skywarp’s first instinct was to awaken his leader, Megatron. When Skywarp and Megatron had all the other Decepticons rebuilt, they left the Ark in search of a new base of operations. Skywarp remained in the Decepticon army as a soldier. He was one of many Seekers on Earth, but after the Decepticons initial plan to build a ship was foiled by the Autobot, Mirage, Skywarp was one of only three Seekers, along with Starscream and Thundercracker. Three new Seekers, Ramjet, Thrust and Dirge, eventually joined the Decepticon forces on Earth a year later. Skywarp was loyal toward Megatron and would often get into arguments with Starscream, usually because Starscream was planning to betray Megatron somehow. Skywarp didn’t get along with a lot of his fellow Decepticons like Frenzy and Rumble along with Starscream. He did, however, have a close friendship with Thundercracker. Skywarp remained in the Decepticon army until the year 2005. During a large battle with the Autobots at Autobot City the Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, shot him down. He escaped from Autobot City on Astrotrain, but was jettisoned into space along with Megatron, Thundercracker and three Insecticons that could have been clones or the real thing, after the healthy Decepticons decided that they needed to get rid of excess weight. Skywarp and the other Decepticons floated through space until they were met by Unicron. Unicron made a deal with Megatron that involved Skywarp and the others being reformatted into new, stronger Transformers. It is unknown as to whether Skywarp was reformatted into Scourge, Cyclonus or the infamous “Armada”. But what is for sure is that his personality was erased and the new being that he was reformatted into was completely different from him.
