Personality: Bulletdive can be described as having a quiet demeanor. In fact, he is more a mech of actions and less with words. He rarely speaks up when those around him are engaged in conversation, and unless spoken to directly, then he'll talk. Others say he comes off as cold, and he can be, but that's not always the case. He doesn't like to make himself known, as he is often mistrustful. However, Bulletdive is very to the point about things, or blunt as some would say, but he rarely ever lies. In fact, Bulletdive would rather tell the truth about things as he is a mech looking for his own answers. He's often predatory. He finds little trust in anyone and is constantly defensive. Rarely letting his guard down, he's ready to strike at any given moment, for if he does allow himself to let other's see what he considers to be a weakness, he fears it'll lead to a dire situation he'll pay for dearly. Bulletdive isn't one to open up so easily either, and that makes him distance himself from most. Easily provoked, Bulletdive is a strong willed and determined individual who'll take risks to get what he wants; especially when it comes to uncovering the truth. Revenge is something that stays with him and he's driven by its emotions. If you've wronged him then he'll find - and most likely kill - you. Anger is also an emotion Bulletdive deals with and personal grudges run deep within his processor. If you are one of those lucky individuals who befriend him and gain his trust, which will either take a long time or not happen at all, then you'll have someone to count on in any situation. But as mentioned previously, Bulletdive rarely considers anyone to be a friend and only an acquaintance. You'll hardly ever see that kinder side of his personality. Despite his naturally intimidating nature, he carries himself as someone with a dry sense of humor. His responses are witty and sarcastic, which might anger some others. Bulletdive knows that his way of responding is just a mechanism to cope with his situations, and he's fine with that. On the outside, he may appear dark, mysterious and distant, but inside, his mind is haunted with his actions and the memories of those he's consumed; he almost feels plagued by them. He might appear cool and collected, but truthfully, he's quite unstable. He's constantly tormented and reminded daily of the lives he's taken and their last screams before they died, yet he often finds himself not feeling any emotions at all towards it. He knows that some of his victims deserved to die and a part of him is glad that they aren't around to cause anymore damage. In a way, it's his own sense of justice. He's a mech of many secrets, and though he appears silent on the exterior, his interior is constantly thinking. Highly intelligent even before his death, Bulletdive is permanently planning, adapting, and learning. Upon discovering his newly gained powers, he can mimic his personality into those of the transformers he's consumed. All for the job. And in regards to the job, he can be manipulative, cunning, whatever is required. Though the real Bulletdive may be dead, the virus - having taken over his mind, personality, body, memories, and so on - poses as the real one and whatever actions were taken.
Amnesia is a condition in which memory is disturbed or lost. The causes of amnesia have traditionally been divided into categories. Functional causes are psychological factors, such as mental disorder, post-traumatic stress or, in psychoanalytic terms, defense mechanisms. His memories are completely lost and only reach back to the time where he woke up in the Decepticon base. All he can remember is his name, however he sometimes has flashbacks if someone mentions a certain place or person, which can cause him to break down and fight with his own mind. It often leaves him confused and in some cases even vulnerable for a moment, since it's appearantly painful for him to remember.
♦ Borderline Sociopath
They are devoid of feeling and can perform the most inhumane acts without an ounce of guilt or remorse. They also have the capacity to put on an act of remorse, which can throw one off and into believing they really do feel. It's always an act. If crossed, they can move from an appearance of compassion and caring to a cold-blooded killer in an instant. Because they are without feeling, they can often fool others, as they have no physiological responses to lying. Arguing with them is a lost cause. They will always out-maneuver someone and prove them wrong. Life is a game and people are pieces on their game board to be moved at their will. If one doesn't play their game, they will have no use for them. If one begins to play their game and gets in their way, they will eliminate that person by either destroying or by discarding them. However, they don’t have the inner strength to maintain the facade all the way through. They will swing from a position of high competence and disdain for others to depression and self-doubt believing they are much worse than others. These people can be very confusing because you will never be able to pin down how they react. In a relationship they are very difficult to be with as they have severe mood swings that are not caused by any external event. Because they personalize almost everything anyone else does or says, it is difficult to know how they are receiving what you are saying to them or doing with them. They really see themselves as the center of everything and have a very distorted view of their importance to others. If you don't realize this you will feel very crazy with them.

♦ Uppercut [ doesn't remember her ]
Uppercut is his younger sister, who's currently siding with the Autobots. She doesn't know that her brother is still alive and already believes that he's dead. They once shared a good relationship, as he was the typical older brother that protected his sister from all threats. It's a mystery how things between them would look now.
♦ No personal ones.

♦ Academy of Science and Technology.
"I woke up and remembered nothing. My mind was merely a black hole inside of my head that craved for answers."
» No. 002, alias Bulletdive, came from Iacon where he was born as the son of a local engineer and an artistic femme. Further information about his bloodline is unknown. He was signed up for the Autobot Academy, but there are no records of his achievements, which indicates that he possibly never visited the academy. Instead, he showed up at the Academy of Science and Technology where he earned himself a name due to his high intelligence. There are mentions of him in paperworks, describing him as a "distant genius that learns a lot in his freetime". He soon after became a successful scientist, appreciated for his grand inventions and discoveries. He also left his home for yet unknown reasons, but it's possible that he didn't share the best bond with his parents and decided to leave because of that. In his own home, he soon started to experiment with the chemical composition of the cybertronian body, testing different diseases and viruses on them. He even presented his preliminary findings to famous scientists of high-rank and was eventually deployed as a new hire. Rumors about him spending day and night in the scientist rooms spread, but it's debatable if No. 002 truly was this dedicated with his work. His career reached its ultimate peak when he discovered two viruses that could either destroy or repair cybertronian materials. He switched his working place to a much bigger company and was asked by his superior to increase the effect of the viruses in order to use them for medical care or as weapons. The viruses were soon known under the names "NIGHTWAKE" [ destroying virus ] and "DAYTURN" [ healing virus ] and the military was eager to use them in the war. As he prepared the first cargo to be sent out, he was assaulted by the Decepticons who tried to get their servos on the NIGHTWAKE virus. In vengeance, he smashed the vial with the virus on the floor. No. 002 was promptly shot by the Decepticon soldiers. Moments later, his corpse was absorbed by the NIGHTWAKE virus, imbuing him with an unknown power. «
"I didn't like what I saw. I tried to flee. They held me back and forced me back on the table. I knew something was going terribly wrong."
» His corpse was transported to a Decepticon ship, were the medics were trying to find leftovers of the virus. Only a few days after No. 002 had been under the care of the medics, he awoke from the dead. At this point, no one could explain why this had happened. The confused mech tried to flee, but he was quickly forced down and held back. It soon turned out that he suffered from excessive amnesia, as he couldn't even remember his own name anymore. It was later told to him after they researched Autobot files. The medics discovered that he was missing a functional spark as well and was technically offline, but something seemed to keep his system intact. After researching, they found out that the virus was still intact inside of his body, and assumed that it was the NIGHTWAKE virus itself that was keeping him online. No. 002 was technically a lethal virus inside of a cybertronian body. Further observations were made and it became clear that he still suffered from weaknesses; he was almost blind and could barely see, which was also painful. The fact that he was a virus made his gender debatable as well, which consequently ended up in him being refered to as an "it". They designed a visor that supported his eyesight and took away the pain he seemingly suffered through. Afterwards he was branded with the Decepticon insignia, but his optics remained blue underneath the red visor which was probably caused by the NIGHTWAKE virus. No. 002 was once again called Bulletdive. «
"I have become something less than human. But also something more."
» He went through many tests in order to discover what kind of powers he actually had gained and what he was capable of doing. Bulletdive was tall, but far from being bulky, which allowed him to move fast and with surprising agility. He did well with heavy weapons and also carried claws in his right servo that could extend if he wished to. The virus allowed him to successfully kill other Transformers and even consume them, but he isn't telling us what benefits he's getting from it. It's possible that he could receive energy from them, but also that he gains knowledge of all their memories - which could quickly turn him into a genius. On the other hand, he's vulnerable to light exposure if he doesn't wear his visor and often suffers from processorache. He can also not stand explosion, shockwaves or anything similar that throws him off his feet. It damages him more than expected, since he can take bullets fairly well. His body is strong, indeed a weapon, but his mind and personality are weak. As assumed, Bulletdive is a psychological mess that has a twisted and even dangerous personality. You could say he has the aura of a predator. He kills without remorse, yet he's haunted by the screams of the victims he has killed and consumed. It's not out of question that he would kill his allies if he feels betrayed. Another important consideration was his independent nature. If he didn't want to, he'd never listen to you; he was making his own rules. Nowadays, Bulletdive is still member of the Decepticons that fights fiercely against the Autobots in order to find out more about his past, but he seems to be aware of the fact that something is shady. With no recollection of where he came from, he's forced to track down those responsible for his situation and consume them in order to uncover the truth behind what has been done to him. Revenge is a meal best served cold. «
