Explanation of the conversion: I made up a bit of history for Stinkbomb based on the events of the Beast Wars television series.

Stasis pods History: Stinkbomb was one of the protoforms from the Maximal ship called the Axelon commanded by Optimus Primal, which chased the Predacon criminal Megatron II through transwarp space after the theft of the Golden Disc. The Maximals and Predacons crashed on prehistoric Earth, where high energon levels threatened to destroy the crew unless they adopted organic alternate modes (Beast Wars Part 1).

The Axelon's cargo of Maximal protoforms in stasis pods had been launched into orbit before the crash, but eventually Stinkbomb's pod fell to Earth. Stinkbomb emerged in the form of a transmetal skunk.

A strategic specialist, Stinkbomb is fascinated with the study of Predaconial psychology. She understands the power-driven Predacon mindset and delights in manipulating it to Maximal advantage. Once taunted for her unpleasant odor, Stinkbomb's sharp wit, cunning tactics and dangerous intelligence quickly earned him the respect of her colleagues. She is regarded by Maximal leaders as a valued advisor and fierce warrior.

Trivia: The toy of Stinkbomb is similar to that of Gas Skunk, a Predacon. There is a chinese made knockoff of Stinkbomb which is colored slightly differently called Badger-Bot.

Stinkbomb Powers: Stinkbomb is highly energy efficient, smart and brave. She relies on serrated tail for close range combat. Photon emitters in his optical sensors project hypnotic light spectrum capable of lulling his enemies. Her foul chemical spray causes temporary paralysis and a nasty odor remains for weeks unless his victim bathes in tomato juice. She can assume the form of a transmetal skunk. She recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well.

Weaknesses: Stinkbomb has a distinctive bad smell, making him easy to track. It would be hard for Stinkbomb to sneak up on someone down wind of his position. Stinkbomb only has average firepower. High energon fields can adversely effect Stinkbomb if she stays in robot form for too long. His animal form is protected from high energon levels.
