|“||You blueshell me, Spitze breathe fire.||”|
SPITZE is a large, imposing figure. Her alt-mode, a terran ankylosaur is heavily armored and rugged. Armed with a shield and mace, she came forth complete with a solar array that seems to be multi-purpose.
Spitze arrived as a mystery, crawling out of the sand at Alyon while the Autobots were searching for a missing Imager. It took three months, but eventually the conclusion came about that Spitze WAS Imager, heavily mutated by whatever freak spark storm went on. In theory, there's a second spark in her chamber housing, but isn't strong enough yet to be withdrawn and put into its own casing. Until then, Spitze is in control.
Just to help people in interactions with Spitze, the following things are noted:
- Spitze has a lot of trouble communicating, even to the level of standard Dinobots. She sometimes corrects herself to sound more Dinobot-y.
- Spitze constantly repeats her name. The Autobot therapist, whatever his name is, you know who I am talking about, says its probably an affirmation.
- She stubbornly refuses to altmode, even to the point of incapacitation. The one time she DID transform (Due to Sideswipe), her entire personality shifted to one of unease. Her vocal capacity shifted completely as well.
Speculation: Mode-based cognitive functions, probably due to her dual spark issue.

- December 28 - "Ibex B Cup" - Kup challenges all takers on a race in Ibex on the 'B' track. Which is a hazardous living condition all on its own.

Feb 16 - *spaceport footage*
There's footage of a gold and silver anklyosaur asleep on a launch pad. A shuttle is nearby needing to be moved in position. A hesitant worker attempts to move it with a forklift, only for it to roll over completely, and stay asleep.
Feb 20 - *public footage*
Several onlookers are dismayed to see Spitze walking through Iacon with someone's arm hanging loose, stuck in part of her shell. She has a few scorch marks but seems no worse for wear.
- March 26 - "Wild Cybertron Polar Aurora" - Lunar scanners and satellites report that there is to be an amazing display at the north pole. Several cybertronians journey up to see if they can catch a glimpse.
Apr 07 - *cafeteria footage*
There's video from a group of civilians having some midday refueling, when an ankylosaur appears on camera, and stubbornly decides to go over and across tables instead of around them. Tables are broken, chairs are overturned, people are indignant.
May 30 - More Traffic footage
Jul 22 - *footage from Alyon*
Footage from Hot Spot shows an anklyosaur pulling a large panel up a sandy dune. The ankylosaur studies the panel, then stands upon it, causing it to slide down the dune. The anklyosaur then begins to drag it back up the dune.
Aug 09 - *footage from Iacon*
City footage shows an anklyosaur in heated argument against....a mirror. There is much foot stamping and defiant shouting as onlookers give it a wide berth.
- Spitze is played by Zerombr.
