CROSSWISE is an ancient bounty hunter, skilled in a variety of melee and ranged weapons, as well as tracking and unusual lore. Gruff, sarcastic, and always spoiling for a fight, he isn't above resorting to dirty tricks to take down an enemy. Though he rarely works without getting paid, he also has a strong sense of right and wrong.

Crosswise transforms into a Harmonexian sports car. In robot mode, he is heavily armed, with a crossbow, missile launcher, and a variety of blunt and edged weapons. In speeder mode, he is fast enough to run down most land-based prey. While a fearsome fighter in the field, Crosswise's vorns of isolation has left him bereft of many friends or social skills.

There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim.[1]


Pre-MUX History

Crosswise in battle

Crosswise left his home polity of Harmonex long ago to hunt monsters across Cybertron and the galaxy. In 1766, Crosswise tracked Airachnid to Earth, where they fought in Alaska. Airachnid defeated him and left him to die half-buried on the side of a mountain.

MUX History

In 2020, Crosswise was found and brought to Autobot City to recover, where he learned to his dismay that Airachnid was still active and at-large. Soon after, Starlock took him back to Cybertron, and specifically, New Harmonex.

Settling in the new city, Crosswise has been encouraged to start up Harmonex's Hunter's Guild again, and become a leader and protector of the city.
