Sari Animated

Sari Sumdac, Substitute Autobot leader

Sari Sumdac (サリ・サムダック, Sari Samudakku), the techno-organic daughter of robotics genius Isaac Sumdac, used to not get out much. She spent all her time within her father's laboratories, receiving her education from robots. Despite this, she doesn't seem like a shut-in. She's curious, excitable, adventurous, and knows that crying can sometimes get her what she wants. She's just never known what it's like to be around other kids. Fortunately, she has Bumblebee, Bulkhead and Beast Boy to help with that, and she claims that 'Bee is the best friend she's ever had. In fact, she's become very possessive of all her robotic friends.

It was believed that Sari was a normal human, until it was revealed that she was made from a protoform and her father's DNA. Hence, the AllSpark viewed her with great regard, bestowing upon her a key with miraculous powers (though her guardian, the robotic dog Sparkplug), thought it was just another chew toy).

Since discovering her true origin, she has absorbed the power of her AllSpark-powered Key to gain Cybertronian abilities such as enhanced strength, speed, and the ability to create destructive spheres of energy with her hands, as well as the ability to transform into an armored form with a huge selection of weapons. She also owns a scooter which can transform into a jet pack.

Although Sari is one hundred percent human, she’s an “honorary” Autobot. As the adopted daughter of robotics magnate Isaac Sumdac, Sari lived a sheltered life until she met the Autobots. Obsessed by his work, Sumdac had little time for Sari growing up. As a result, she was raised largely by his domestic robot drones, whom little Sari came to love as deeply as any parent, nanny, teddy bear and/or imaginary friend.

Sari is also integral to the survival of the Autobots. When they first awakened on Earth, the AllSpark scanned for technology that would allow the Autobots to blend in with their environment. But it scanned something else first: an organic life form—specifically, a pre-pubescent girl who was hanging around her father’s robotics factory. Call it an accident or call it destiny, but the AllSpark projected part of itself onto Sari in the form of the Key. Wearing it on a chain around her neck, Sari can use the Key to absorb the AllSpark energy and store it like a battery, providing an emergency power supply and healing source for the Autobots in battle. It also provides Sari with an almost psychic connection to the Autobots. She can sense when they’re in danger and when Decepticons are near.

Sari acts as the unofficial ambassador to the planet Earth for the Autobots, cluing them in on such alien concepts as junk food, school, sleep, popularity, shopping, belching contests, fashion and the dreaded tow away zones.

After discovering that she is a techno-organic Transformer, her alternate modes are Human/Cybertronian hybrid Techno-organic being (with a robotic armored/cybernetic form).




Sari is feisty, kind, loyal, jolly, honourable, and clever. She bonded with the Autobots and Teen Titans well.







Weapons & AbilitesEdit

In the first two seasons, Sari is for all intents and purposes a normal human girl. She does however possess the AllSpark Key, which is for all intents and purposes a cure-all for whatever problem the Autobots are facing - it can repair them, activate machines, change the function of machines, whatever is required of the situation.

In season 3, after learning that she is a part Cybertronian, Sari gains the ability to shoot energy bolts/blasts from her hands. After using the Allspark Key to upgrade herself in "Transwarped", Sari gains a huge selection of weapons such as forearm-mounted energon-blades, foot mounted roller-blades, a hand-held energon-sword, a hand-held energon-hammer, a hand-held energon-sickle, and a hand-held energon-spear., the ability to transform into an armored battle form, as well as strength well exceeding that of the average human. She also gains some more new abilities - Isaac Sumdac gives Sari a jetpack for Christmas, allowing Sari to fly while wearing it, and Sari herself demonstrates an ability to understand what is wrong with a broken machine merely by touching it.
