|"Where there's fire, there's me."
Flareup was a student of rescue operations officer, Firestar. She learned the art of rescue well, but soon developed a fondness for destruction rarely seen among Autobots, however, her love of destruction is not a love of violence. It is an appreciation of the planning behind demolitions as if it were an art form. Flareup has an extremely cheerful disposition, which unnerves other Autobots as it seems to run contrary to the grim nature of her work.
Abilities: In vehicle mode, Flareup is capable at traveling at 330 mph. She maneuvers readily and can utilize both her missile launcher and laser canon in this form. These two weapons combine to form a powerful weapon for Flareup in robot mode. Her skin is made of special composite that allows her to withstand temperatures of up to 8,000 degrees centigrade Flareup is an expert at the use of "smart" explosive charges to destroy a target.
Weakness: Flareup sometimes gets too wrapped up in the planning of her demolitions and does not take proper precautions to protect herself from the results of her handiwork, leading to injury.

Flareup Additional Info
Flareup appeared in the Botcon 2008 script reading, "Bee in the City". She was a security officer at Axiom Nexus, enforcing the city's policy of "No Megatrons, no Primes, no cosmic Macguffins, and no soliciting". Apart from the occasional day when things just seem to go completely wrong (like, say, a certain purple dinosaur going by the alias "Joe Convoy" getting his claws on Sari's Key) she prefers her life in Axiom Nexus to the one she left behind "because who wants to be shot at all day?"

(2005 Boards Moderator and Internet Personality Vangelus won the men's half of the contest and voiced Shockwave.
