The Tip-Top Target Tracker!
Deathly afraid of heights, PINNACLE once attempted to serve with several aerial partners, hoping to overcome his acrophobia. The tactic failed, instead tending to result in the unplanned ejection of incompletely processed fuel from his intake port onto his partners, causing paint damage and premature rusting around his attachment port. Having resigned himself to ground-based partners, Pinnacle has become much more effective, though his aim can still become shaky if fired from above waist height.
Subject: FireboxOne of the rare few female Deceptive Constructs, there are few others whom Firebox can relate to, leading to her cover her insecurity with empty bravado and cruel taunts to her targets. Unknown to her partners, she holds a long smoldering affection for her counterpart, PINNACLE, whose courage when being above waist height is battle makes her lubricants boil. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead her to daydreaming instead of tracking her targets, allowing the team's enemies to escape.
The Heiney Heater!
