Windblade is an Autobot who hails from the Cybertronian colony planet Caminus. A Cityspeaker who can communicate with the colossal, city-sized Transformers known as Titans, Windblade is an optimist and dreamer who strongly believes in truth and duty. Lately, however, her experiences with serving as her home planet's representative in the Cybertronian Council of Worlds have continuously put those convictions to the test.

Fiction[edit]

Born on the Cybertronian colony Caminus, Windblade was a Cityspeaker who helped maintain the Titan for which the planet was named. Cut off from Cybertron for millenia, Caminus' isolation came to an end when the legendary Autobot war hero Thunderclash discovered the planet. Taking off with him alongside her bodyguard Chromia and friend Nautica, WIndblade's time among Thunderclash's crew came to an abrupt end when Thunderclash was approached by the Autobot sage Alpha Trion who asked that he help his longtime partner Metroplex while he took care of another mission. While she and the other two Camiens attempted to save the grievously wounded Titan, they were found by the crew of the Lost Light and eventually made their way to Cybertron alongside Metroplex.

Called to Earth by Soundwave and Pyra Magna, Windblade was asked to see if she could get through to Metrotitan, a Titan who had wound up on Earth and who's city mode the Autobots were currently using as a base but was unwilling to communicate. Strangely, the trio found no sign of anything wrong with the Titan even after days of searching. Informed TFWikiFavicon.png Windblade remained on Earth, and in the wake of an Ore-13 explosion on Mount Olympus she helped coordinate Autobot relief efforts across the globe from within Metrotitan. When Jazz and Arcee ran afoul of G.I. Joe in Oregon, Windblade arrived as part of the Autobot reinforcements. When a silver alien interrupted the fracas to kill several members of G.I. Joe, Windblade and the other Autobots evacuated the scene to pursue the intruder.

Back at Autobot City, the efforts to communicate with Metrotitan continued, until Pyra Magna happened to suggest that the Titan was simply not willing to talk with anyone... except a Prime. Unsure of Metrotitan's true intentions and unwilling to endanger Optimus, Windblade merged her mind with Metrotitan's. The Titan wasn't happy to be communicating with her; he explained that he was merely trying to pass on a message from one of the Thirteen before shunting Windblade's consciousness into Microspace, where she encountered Micronus Prime. The Prime told her that she would have to experience his message for herself - and so her new avatar was set adrift in the entropy cloud. The evil Baron Karza soon found the young Camien and had her interrogated by his wife Lady Shazraella. There, Windblade learned about the war that threatened the stability of Microspace. One of Shazraella's handmaidens sacrificed herself to set Windblade free as soon as her mistress's back was turned, allowing Windblade's avatar to fade away and return her consciousness to her normal body. Optimus was hesitant to follow through on her plea to help Microspace, as the Prime had misgivings about her plan. Unable to blaspheme against Optimus Prime, Windblade grudgingly promised to follow her Prime and understand his motives. Informed TFWikiFavicon.png

When the Transformers and Rom convened to strategize, Windblade argued that helping Microspace should be their top priority - a sentiment that Soundwave agreed with, believing that everything had to be connected. Optimus took command and decided that the Autobots would need to help Earth first. When Rom took matters into his own hands by sending Ore-13 through Metrotitan's space bridge to put it beyond the reach of the Wraiths, the Autobots moved to stop the Space Knight and Optimus realized the error of his ways, resolving that they would have to find a way to save both worlds. O Ship of State TFWikiFavicon.png Meanwhile, Snake Eyes had infiltrated Autobot City and distracted Windblade long enough to sneak into the complex. There, he encountered Arcee and the recently arrived Heliopolis. After the fight between Snake Eyes, Arcee, and Acroyear was ended by Soundwave, Windblade investigated the tiny spaceship and recognized the lifeforms within from her time in Microspace. The New Colossus TFWikiFavicon.png Soon after, Karza showed up in their universe and fused with the Dire Wraiths to form a gigantic super-powered colossus. In the heat of battle, Windblade noticed that the monster was speaking Ancient Cybertronian. As part of the plan the resident do-gooders had hatched to send Karza back to whence he had came, Windblade used her cityspeaking talents to activate Metrotitan's flight mode, lifting the entire city to safety.
