Explanation of the conversion: I decided that Ravage can be either giant or tiny at will, but he usually chooses to be large in robot form and tiny in cassette form. The Always On limitation on his size Multipower means he MUST choose to either be tiny or giant, no in-between. The two sets of characteristics represent his abilities in his two sizes.
History: (Dreamwave comics) Ravage was recruited as a Decepticon under the leadership of Megatron his war
against the Autobots on the planet Cybertron. He was worked under communications officer Soundwave.
When a new Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, was chosen, Ravage was sent along with
Shrapnel, Bombshell, Kickback and Soundwave, to attempt to kill him and bring to Matrix to
Megatron, but they failed, forcing Megatron to confront Optimus personally.
Ravage was chosen as a member of the crew of the Nemesis when Megatron launched it to attack the Ark, an Autobot ship.
Both ships fought, and after the Decepticons boarded the Ark, it crashed on the planet Earth, where all on board were
placed in emergency stasis lock for millions of years.
In the Earth year 1984, a volcanic explosion awakened the Ark and
it's computer, Teletran One, reformatted all on board to be able to assume the forms of Earth machines. Ravage was given a
robotic form resembling an Earth cougar and an alternate form of a cassette tape.
''Does that even compare with Ravage's power to slip undetected anywhere? and my own monitoring in my nose module
allow me to smell, hear and detect electromagnetic radiation beyond that of any Decepticon.'' - Ravage
Eventually the combined forces of the Autobots on Earth, and their human allies were able to capture the Decepticons. A
ship called the Ark II was built to take the Cybertonians back to Cybertron, along with some human companions, but the
ship exploded shortly after takeoff. The human allies were killed, but the Cybertonians were lost in the ocean, again in
Bumblebee, Frenzy, Grimlock, Laserbeak, Prowl, Ravage, Soundwave and Starscream were forced at attack the Smitco oil
refinery in the Arctic to display their power for sale to the highest bidder (Transformer: Generation One #2).
After the end of the Great War, Ravage was among the Decepticons who were given amnesty of his crimes. He was reformatted
in the form of a Predacon and became a special agent for the Tripredicus council. He was dispatched to find and kill
the rogue Predacon commander Megatron II.
Ravage operates best when he operates alone. He's a creature of the night and carries out most of his murderous mischief
at that time. Often the other Decepticons have no idea where he is, but they know he's up to no good, so they don't mind.
He is easily the craftiest of his comrades and is quick to devise deadly new strategies to be used against the Autobots.
He tends to remain aloof from the others, but his deeds command their respect. He is an exceptionally efficient war
Powers: Ravage is highly skilled. He can hide his presence from others virtually completely. He can shield any
electromagnetic radiation inside him from being detected by any monitoring devices. His walk is soundless, and he can
disappear from sight in subdued light and shadows. He can fly. He has his own monitoring devices in his nose module that give him a
superior sense of smell, hearing and full-spectrum electromagnetic wave detection. He carries two low-radiation 1 megaton proton bombs, which he can fire over 3 miles distant or set in place with a timer. Ravage can change into a cassette tape and shrink to the size of one as well.
Weaknesses: He is very sensitive to light and can be blinded by too much of it. Ravage isn't very brave when
discovered, and usually lashes out then runs away.
