T.O.C. Tumble and Raptor by PirateNikki T.O.C. Tumble and Raptor by PirateNikki
GOSH DARNIT. Coloring was rushed and Tumble looks too friggin purple. D: He was PERFECT on my Cintiq! >_< Gah... Oh well... Just refer to the G1 Rumble colors in this link ---> [link]

ANYWAYS. FINALLY. Guys, meet Tumble (Rumble) and Raptor (Ravage). Storytelling time~

Name: Tumble aka Grant Levitt.

Age: 11

EDIT!::Weapon: Dual Berserker Tonfas. Parkour-styled fighting. Depending from the height he jumped off from, if Tumble slams his clenched fists into the earth... EARTHQUAKE. The higher he jumps from, the stronger the impact.

Personality: Curious, respects superiors, has a short attention span, nosy but keeps quiet... most of the time.

Likes: Books, dance, parkour (Wilson doesn't like the idea of his little bro doing daredevil stunts though...), baking with his brother.

Dislikes: Being underestimated, long lectures, breaking his bones from failed Parkour runs around the city.

Background: After running away from home with his older brother Wilson, Grant stays with his brother at a popular internet cafe they call their own. During one of Wilson's band gigs, the band leader presented Grant with a Soundwave toy. An ACTUAL Soundwave! It was because of this toy that Grant became interested in dance and music... But mostly dance. One Saturday morning, with his Soundwave toy and library books stuffed in his bag, Grant decided to look for a new route to run and practice his freelance running. He was so excited to explore the city that he forgot to lock up the internet cafe on his way out. Making his way into a narrow alley, Grant warmed up, stretched his legs, and amazingly zigzagged upwards in between the two buildings that surround him until he reached the roof. From then on, Grant leaped from building to building and finally made his way to the library. Unfortunately, while Grant was on his way home, a few jealous gang members jumped Grant while he was leaping across their territorial buildings. Outnumbered, the gang kicked and spat at the young freckled boy. With Grant's legs fractured, the gang leader held him by the neck over the side of the building. Grant panicked knowing he might permanently ruin his dance and parkour legs if he was dropped at that height. He could barely move ANY of his limbs. With tears filling his eyes, the gangleader let go and gave out a laugh. Falling. Falling. It seemed like forever 'til suddenly, young Grant gave out a deathly scream as he hit the floor, back first. Young Grant sobbed, his legs broken, arms dislocated, and his back? He didn't want to know if his back was broken. All he knew was that he heard a CRUNCH. From the trauma and pain, Grant's world turned black and out he went. Several hours later, Grant jolted and sat up as if he experienced a nightmare. What happened? Why am I here? he wondered. The oblivious boy carefully stood up as if nothing happened and looked to where he laid. His backpack was flattened. The floor below him cratered in. Peeking through the contents of his bag, Grant slipped out his destroyed Soundwave toy... "Soundwave... How did this happen?" The small blue robot in Grant's hands shook around, glitching here and there, until a blue shimmer fled the shattered robotic body. The cyan dust encircled Grant and merged into his own body. As the dust entered his body, Grant remembered what happened and what had helped him and possibly saved his life. Setting the broken Soundwave into the crater, Grant slowly stepped back and dashed off home to tell his brother what happened.

Description: Grant is not very tall and only stands to where the "speaker" pattern on Wilson's jacket is. Grant has light freckles on his face and he always tends to be rosy cheeked after runs through the city. He is also more tan than Wilson for always being outdoors.

Name: Raptor

Age: -unknown-

Weapon: Her claws and fangs.

Personality: Mother-like towards Wilson and Grant since she wasn't able to bear pups for herself. Protective. Cautious. Loyal to Wilson and Grant. Obeys Nekotron IF it benefits Soundson and Tumble.

Likes: Knowing that her 'boys' are safe.

Dislikes: fighting with Nekotron over food, seeing her 'boys' hurt.

Background: Raptor has lived with the two brothers way before they ran away from home. She always looked after them since she couldn't give birth to her own puppies. And ever since Wilson's and Grant's mother died, Raptor felt the need to take their mother's place. The two brothers realize this and decide to be like sons to Raptor. Of course, Raptor DOES know she's a canine and that the two brothers are her masters. But during emotional times, the three are a real family. When the two decided to run away from home, she followed. Raptor now lives at the internet cafe; roaming freely among the customers. One Saturday morning, she watched Grant leave to go to the library and forgot to lock the door. Raptor shook her head, and laid there just keeping guard. A few moments later, 2 girls giggled by. Raptor snarled, but the girl in red gave an intimidating grin as the girl in purple gave out a sneaky snicker. Raptor didn't attack, but approached them. Cautiously approaching the girl in red, with a sudden flash that girl shoved and implanted something in Raptor's head. Raptor gave out a whimper and cry but soon learned her new self.

Description: Raptor still has her fur in her robot form... But instead of actual fur, it's micro-strands of the strong steel out there in Cybertron. Her collar helps her transform into her different forms. She has a normal form, her robot form, and her **Havoc form**. She'll only take on Havoc Form when she's protecting Soundson and Tumble from possible death. Still hard for her to control that form. It is said that THAT form comes from the two brothers' deceased mother. :iconwooooplz:
