Dawnfire is a knight-errant on a quest for atonement. Burdened with guilt over the deaths of his friends, he's tasked himself with protecting the innocent and aiding the needy in the hopes that he will someday find absolution. He is as good-natured and benevolent as most Autobots, though it's mostly hidden beneath his grim exterior and bitter outlook towards life. Dawnfire's fear of being helpless or unable to save others from death drove him to take up basic repair training, but he still considers himself a warrior and guardian rather than a medic. His primary weapon is a massive sword equipped with a mechanism designed to discharge damaging amounts of energy into his unlucky target(s). In addition to his sword, he is armed with several laser-based firearms, a number of knives, and flamethrowers installed in his forearms and wings.
Dawnfire is the lone living remnant of an Autobot strike team that specialized in operations behind enemy lines. A sabotage mission gone wrong resulted in their capture, imprisonment, and eventually, deaths. Survivor's guilt spurred Dawnfire's decision to take up medic training.
Afterwards, Dawnfire went from being a soldier to a wandering guardian, roaming Cybertron and offering aid to Autobots and neutrals he stumbled across. Eventually, his travels brought him to Earth, where he's been lying low for several months. So far, he's picked up a couple hobbies - meditation, which he hopes will help him control his temper, and video gaming, which he finds fun.
