Arcee from The Transformers (2017 TV Series).
Most make the mistake of noticing only Arcee's gender, but these first impressions are quickly expanded upon. Arcee is a merciless and deadly warrior who's an expert in hand-to-hand combat and one of the best sharpshooters on record. The reason for her ferocity is how much she cares for her fellow Autobots and especially the humans they protect. She knows how fragile her organic companions are, and she's equally aware of the evils the Decepticons are capable of. Peers such as Hot Rod and Springer may be more durable than the humans, but she no less fights to defend them as well. They get in plenty of trouble, so someone has to be the level-headed one (Some believe Arcee has a romantic attraction to either of those two, but that depends on who and when you ask).
If concern for her friends is her strength, it's regrettably also her weakness. If anything would happen to them, she might just completely lose it. And she may be quick, but she's not very strong.
Arcee is from a future where events similar to the original The Transformers: the Movie occurred.
Though they had been quite friendly beforehand, Arcee and Hot Rod began to drift apart after his ascension to Prime status in 2006. She remained stationed at Autobot City on Earth, but grew bored by her duties. One day in 2008, she decided to be a bit adventurous, rationalizing that ditching her duties and returning before anyone noticed wouldn't amount to any harm. After a quick drive through the countryside, she returned to base to find it under siege by the Quintessons. Arcee was accosted, wounded, and strategically placed as bait so that Rodimus would see her upon investigating the attack on the outpost. Sure enough, when he spotting her, Rodimus rushed to his "childhood" friend's aid. When he tried to use the Matrix to heal her, Arcee tried to warn her leader of the set-up, but the trap had already been sprung; the Quintessons stole the Matrix and Rodimus Prime reverted to Hot Rod. Despite her injuries, Arcee was soon back on her feet and assisting Hot Rod in a last-ditch effort to thwart the invaders' plans. While she, and a few cassette-Transformers the Quintessons had overlooked, distracted the enemy army, Hot Rod awakened Metroplex, leading to the devastation of the Quintesson fleet. Arcee witnessed Hot Rod retrieve the Matrix from the Quintesson who had swiped it, Ghyrik, after defeating him through trickery. Seeing him hold his own without the Matrix's power renewed Arcee's wavering faith in her commander. |Space Pirates|
