Project Redshift

ASSAULTER
 

Massive, the best word to describe Assaulter. When he joined the pax legion, Assaulters light hearted nature and general amiability made him instantly popular amongst his peers, this however masked a fairly tragic history, his colony had been one of the hardest hit during the initial engagements of the war, only his immense durability saving him. He is unusual for he does not have a ground based shift mode, when asked why, he simply stated. “I was meant for flight”. On the ground none are stronger and in the air few are faster.

Assaulter was one of the three chosen by Defender to participate in Project Redshift, each was chosen for their comfort with flight and their ability to work well with a team. All special division projects come with an element of risk but no one could have predicted the side effects that would present themselves. To say that Assaulter was changed would be a grave understatement. Those afflicted were dubbed “Berserkers”.

What emerged from the Special Division labs was a shadow of the being known as Assaulter. After the modifications were complete he was the most stable of the three test subjects, only he and  Stratus were cleared for duty. Still maintaining his massive strength, Assaulter has become stoics and reserved, following orders to an almost obsessive level. Now under the command of Warbot Steelcore, Assaulter is careful to maintain his composure at all times as the risk of the berserker reemerging is an ever present concern. A time may come when Assaulter is forced to make the choice of weather or not to intentionally release the beast inside of himself with no guarantee that he could reclaim his mind afterwards.
