Lumina - rough sketch

1 Favourite
This is Lumina, my FC for my eventual Transformers fanfic. Please note that this is the first time I have ever drawn a mecha of any kind, and I've only recently been introduced to the Transformers, so if you want to see proper Transformer OCs, I suggest you go look at =birdewilliams wonderful Deserter and Transformer folders in her gallery: [link]

Age: over 4 million years
Height: 18’
Car Form: Maroon ’97 Chevy Lumina
Affiliation: Autobot
Occupation: Communications expert and hacker
Likes: playing loud classical or techno/hip-hop music (often highly inappropriate to the situation), fighting, humans, independence
Dislikes: Decepticons (especially Starscream), closed minds, sanctimonious people, authority, people trying to dig into her past
Personality: serious, focused, dedicated, completely loyal to Atem, suspicious of outsiders and priests, doesn’t have much of a sense of humor
Love interest: Skyfire

Lumina is an Autobot that came to the Earth fairly recently, before the Autobots and Decepticons awoke from their 4-million-year nap, so she’s much more familiar with and comfortable around humans. She often uses human words like “heart,” “life,” and “kill,” rather than Transformer words like “central neural net” or “functional” or “terminate.” Because of this, and the fact that she was the only Autobot awake on Earth for a long time, she is used to being alone and feels isolated from her own kind. She wields a pair of energy swords that can combine into one two-pronged blade like the energy swords in Halo, and has a nearly impenetrable shield she normally keeps slung across her back. Lumina’s presence on Earth is a mystery, but she refuses to talk to anyone about how or why she managed to leave Cybertron so long after Optimus Prime and Megatron. She gets alone fairly well with Tantrum and Sylvan.

Behind Her Name:

“Lumina” is just the name of the kind of car I have, which was my inspiration for the character. I also like to think that “Lumina” is similar to “luminous,” showing how Lumina often sheds light on things that are unfamiliar to the other Autobots. (Plus, it just sounds like a female Transformer name.)

Lumina (c) to me.
