Undertow's another character whose design I took some liberties with. His beast mode is inspired by the Slickribbon, a bristleworm featured in The Future Is Wild. Where that was soft and entirely aquatic, this is a FURTHER evolution that grew a carapace and is able to crawl on land. I'd say he's more like a millipede than a centipede. The most threatening part of him is that jaw. It can extend on a trunk to grab prey.

Come to think of it, the liberties taken with his alternate mode compared to an actual Slickribbon could be seen as his "alternate mode registration system" (that is to say, the system the transformation mechanism uses to pick a disguise) deliberately making changes to get around the land issue. Besides, he's a robot. Of course he'd be tougher than the real thing, even without the carapace.

Just finished it a couple of days ago. It ended up being 185 pages long, basically the length of a movie.
