NOTE: Please read my fanfic Crime and Punishment for the background on this character.

Allegiance: Autobot
Name: Nightbeat
Function: Detective

Quote: "Truth is revealed in the smallest detail"

Tough, no-nonsense type. Sometimes breaks rules to get what he wants. Originally downsized and formatted into K-9 during the BeastWars, Primus changed him back into a true Cybertronic form during the Oracle Crisis. As comfortable driving down a dark alley as he is a well-lit 6-lane highway.

Equipped with a full array of video, infrared, and audio sensors. Built in plasma blaster in right arm. Transforms into a high-speed Cybertonian race car. Speed 800 mph, range 1400 kilometers.

Sometimes resentful of being forced to return to his true form during the Unformatting. Too-high a speed in vehicle mode causes him to lose control and crash.
