Sol is a Decepticon in The Transformers:Infiltrators. He is the only member of the team to have gone to Earth, and this is where he scanned his alternate mode. While on Earth, his beast mode was organic, but he removed this after his rescue. He is the shortest member of the team. He is very anti-social, and only speaks to his comrades on missions. Despite this, he is very loyal to the Decepticon cause.
Sol was lost on Earth about 200,000 years ago. He would remain there for 195,000 years, roaming the deserts of the world. After his rescue, he was changed. Though still devotedly loyal, he became quiet and introspective. Refusing to reformat himself, he maintains his animal alternate mode as a sign of his imprisonment.
He appeared on AX-IV and attacked a sanworm before it used its sonic attack on him. He was rescued via orbital bounce.
Sol is able to achieve 200 mph on the ground with ease. His alternate mode is armed with massive jaws that can snap through an oak tree. He does not possess a mass shifter, and consequently turns into a 16' wind scorpion. He is extremely fuel efficient, and requires very little energon to function. He wields a solar-beam rifle that fires either blinding flashes of light or a ray of concentrated UV radiation that burns through most armors. His size limits his strength, and he cannot fly in his alternate mode. He also incorporates numerous devices into his frame that assist his function.
Sol is tan with yellow insect legs. He has red eyes.
Behind the scenes
Sol's name is derived from the scientific order that includes wind scorpions.
