Beta is the name of a fictional character from the Transformers series.
Transformers: Generation 1
The gravelly-voiced Beta began existence as one of the Quintessons' many robotic slaves. She would not remain so. In the course of time she became a warrior, armed with a powerful crossbow weapon, and standing beside her partner A3 she would be a leader in the rebellion that freed Cybertron from its Quintesson masters.
The night before the climactic battle with the Quintessons, Beta found that A3 and his Coda Remote had gone missing. With the remote's ability to override the Dark Guardians necessary for a victory, Beta went searching for her missing counterpart. Though he was nowhere to be found she did stumble across a group of strange and powerful robots that improbably also wore the slave brand. After rescuing them from a Dark Guardian, Beta secured their help in the revolt. The strange robots did their part until A3 returned, much to Beta's joy, and saved the day. Beta's fate after this is unknown.
"An ancient female Autobot resistance leader" was impressed by the display of courage the Deployer Rav showed in battle and therefore provided him with a powerful energon crossbow for alternate mode.
