|“||There's always a path to pain.||”|
Nowhere is more of a home to TAIFENG than the cities and tunnels of Cybertron. An urban explorer, in her short time online she’s already discovered new paths across and through the planet. A very social urbanite, she enjoys the company of most other Autobots, especially her respected commander, Stormwind. She prefers sophisticated company, but is never one to turn down the thrills and vices of the city -- especially when she's bored, which is often. An ace pilot, she’s often relied on to fly Autobot shuttles during combat missions.
As a Weatherbot, she's equipped with full Doppler and Nexrad weather tracking equipment, along with a roof aerometer in her Land Rover Discovery mode. In Land Rover mode, her roof is bristling with meteorological equipment. Intended as a coastal-storm expert and trained along the Rust and Mithril Seas, she is built to withstand gale-force winds and crushing waves. She is armed with a whirlwind gun in robot mode, as well as paired Weatherbot laser pistols. She is heavily armored, with a ram plate and towing winch in Land Rover mode. In this mode, she is also equipped with twin top-mounted rocket launchers, and hood-mounted laser batteries. Whenever she can, she merges with the other Weatherbots to form EF-5, as the left leg.
While very smart and good at her job, she doesn’t really like the idea of backward, dirtball Earth, and hopes its conquest will be quick so she can remain on Cybertron.
In the meantime, Taifeng had been studying and updating maps of Cybertron, looking for weak points to defend and strike. When the Ark left without the Weatherbots, Taifeng was secretly pleased, since she far prefers the urban environments of Cybertron to the seemingly backwater Earth.
Taifeng was later involved in the fight to defend Cybertron from a horde of invading Junkions.
- April 27 - "Preparations" - Jetfire and Taifeng prepare for Jetfire's coronation as Autobot Emperor of Destruction.
- July 10 - "The Night Before the Coronation" - Taifeng endures Jetfire's preparations for his coronation.
- August 19 - "A Premature Coronation" - While he would never would publicly admit he was happy hearing of the demise of ruthless Autobot leader Emperor Prime, Jetfire has barely contained his enthusiasm for being selected the next Autobot leader. While this has led to many grumblings throughout the Autobot rankings, Old One believed propping Jetfire up as leader would have best served his purposes. Now, as a small gathering of disarmed Decepticon leaders are forced to watch the coronation of the traitor Jetfire, the extravagant gala begins. However, a late arrival proves fatal to Jetfire. The moral of the story - if you are going to take something that belongs to Emperor Prime, you best be sure the leader is really dead.
