Explanation of the conversion: Catilla's Shell is bought as a vehicle with an onboard computer. It responds directly to radio commands from Catilla when he isn't wearing it, or can be piloted by him when he is wearing it. To represent Catilla before he became a Pretender, merely remove his Vehicle and Susceptability from this write-up, lowering his cost to 192+125 points.

History (Dreamwave comics): Previous to the war Catilla and Carnivac operated as part of an investigative law enforcement team. Catilla was recruited as a Decepticon under the leadership of Megatron in his war against the Autobots on the planet Cybertron.

After Megatron and Autobot leader Optimus Prime were lost in an accident with a space bridge, the Decepticon forces splintered. Dirge joined the Predacons under the command of Starscream.

Eventually Catilla joined the Autobots and became a Pretender.

Catilla is silent, patient and vigilant. He appreciates the importance of his job, so he has no problem squating down silently in position and just observing Decepticon activity for however long is needed. Catilla knows that he'll eventually get to his prey, and he prefers to be fully prepared for when that happens. After stalking his targets, he takes great pleasure in their eventual destruction. Previous to the war Catilla and Carnivac operated as part of an investigative law enforcement team on Cybertron.

Catilla Powers: Catilla is strong and agile. He turns into a mechanical tiger with durabyllium-steel alloy fangs and claws that can slash through the thickest armor. Catilla can reduce himself to a mere 6 feet in height.

In either mode he is armed with an air concussion cannon. Catilla sometimes utilizes a standard Autobot jet pack. He has a pretender shell shaped like a sabretooth tiger.

Weaknesses: If circumstances force Catilla to strike when he's not ready, he can feel overwhelmed and opt for retreat. Like all Pretenders, damage to his shell causes him a painful mental backlash.
