"Is that really the best you can do?"
"You know I can just shoot you and make this situation a whole lot easier, right?"
"How much are you willing to pay?"

Jinx puts on a cheery facade when around other bots; most of her clients describe her as needlessly cheerful and willing to do anything with a smile. Her eagerness for work has made her very popular among some contractors while the rest label her as a psychopath on the verge of reaching her breaking point. However, those that know her most know that her smile and false bravado are a part of a mask used to hide her schizophrenic personality. She cares about those that she manages to become friends with but she can't really figure out how to keep them close to her and that disability leaves her emotionally conflicted, though she does well to hide it.
Jinx was born on the distant planet of Gigation to Velocitronians Hidean and Deidra. Despite being born into a peaceful planet rich with culture and scientific ingenuity, her mech creator Hidean, a well known bounty hunter, attempted to assimilate her into his image. He trained her from a young age in hand to hand combat and honed her skills in the use of armaments, hoping that one day she would become a respected bounty hunter in her time. Deidra, Jinx's femme creator, attempted to halt Hidean's harsh training sessions but to no avail; these futile attempts resulted in high tensions between the two bondmates and Deidra left both Jinx and Hidean without a second thought.
Jinx, not having been particularly close to her femme creator, did not notice her absence and instead focused on pleasing her father, who she deemed to be the perfect role model for her. The youngling endured vorns of merciless training and harsh punishments, one of which included Hidean slitting the tip of her fingers when Jinx failed to complete a test to the best of her ability.
Hidean eventually left Gigation and took Jinx along with him, adopting the nomadic lifestyle of a mercenary for hire. Jinx tagged along on most of his missions but the majority of the time she was forced to stay behind on her father's outposts or with some of his companions.
The hectic lifestyle suited Jinx, that is, until her father was killed during one of his missions. Jinx, having never gotten the chance to prove to her father her capabilities became ireful and she set out to hunt down her father's killer, who, to her knowledge, was a tycoon space pirate known as Axer; apparently, Hidean had a debt to pay to the olden gangster and he had taken too long to repay it and that was something Axer did not forgive easily.
For vorns, she hunted down the mech; she took on dangerous missions, hoping to earn enough prestige and recognition in order to catch Axer's attention and have him to her. She stole from some of the biggest names in the industry and killed bots who hid behind fortified citadels and large armies with the utmost grace and ease. Eventually, her efforts paid of when Axer sent in a request asking for her services.
Hoping to make Axer's death a slow and humiliating one, Jinx became one of his full-time lackeys, biding time in hopes of coming up with a plan to end the mech responsible for taking her mech creator away from her.
However, as time went by, Jinx began to grow more aware of the type of mech that Axer was and she also unearthed some startling facts about her own father. Hidean had been responsible for several massacres on different planets and those he had murdered included not only mechs but also children and femmes. The most startling discovery was that in which Jinx found out that her femme creator had not actually left both her and her father but rather Hidean had killed her during a heated argument.
The new found information left Jinx in ruins; unsure of how to handle the situation and proceed on with her life, Jinx left Axer and instead moved on to a different sector of the galaxy in search of work. She came into contact with a new client called Kros, who claimed to be a a former Guildmaster from a war-torn planet called Cybertron; intrigued, Jinx tagged along with him and nonchalantly agreed to a mission that involved her going onto the planet's surface and investigating the situation regarding the war. She was going to be payed about 800, 000 credits for the job so Jinx was all up for it.
Getting onto the planet's surface was easy and Jinx was able to come in contact with a pair of Decepticons in a run-down bar on the borders of Kaon. She made a wager with one and bet that if she beat him in an arm-wrestling match, he would tell her everything that he knew and vice versa. Jinx won the encounter but the Decepticon was not too eager to give in so easily to a femme; a small brawl broke out and it ended when Jinx managed to kill the two mechs that gave her all the trouble. Her handiwork did not go unnoticed; Jumpdrive, an Autobot undercover, became intrigued with the femme and made a small wager with her in an attempt to get to know her.
The wager was simple. Jumpdrive was to hold a can of Visco in his grasp and Jinx had to use her sniper rifle to shoot it out of his servo, while he was in motion, without hurting him, in exchange for 1000 credits.
Jinx managed to complete the wager flawlessly and for the both of them, that's where it all began. Jinx was able to learn about the whole conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons and she went along with it in hopes of sticking close to Jumpdrive.
She had a steady relationships with most of the Autobots at first but when it came to dealing with Climaxx, Jinx found herself facing one of the biggest challenges of her career. Apart from Jinx's slight attraction to Silverwing, Jinx was able to gain prestige for being one of the best sword-wielders in the Autobot faction and that angered Climaxx, who saw her capabilities being directly challenged. A deep seated rivalry developed between the two and the extremes that it went to could be said to be on the verge of psychotic. Apart from vying to take out the most Cons during battles, there were a few skirmishes in which Jinx 'accidentally' threw Climaxx off a moving carrier shuttle that was being manned by Decepticons or tripped the alarm during infiltration missions.
Apart from that, Jinx began to develop strong feelings for Jumpdrive but she was unable to goad him on when Kros sent in new orders telling her to bring back the intel that she had gathered. Jinx was hesitant but when Kros told her he would triple her pay, Jinx was unable to resist, despite her best intentions. Jinx hacked into the Autobot mainframe and took off, managing to fight back Jumpdrive and Climaxx and a few select others before hopping onto a transport shuttle and redlining off world. However, her shuttle was destroyed before she left the atmosphere. Despite that, her body was never found and it is speculated that she managed to escape off the surface of Cybertron, in one way or another. Her whereabouts are unknown but some speculate that she is somewhere near Cybertron.
Hidean: Her mech creator; Jinx loved her father dearly and she wanted nothing more than to please him and make him proud of her. However, upon learning of who he really was, Jinx forsake him and gave up on her quest for revenge.
Deidra: Her femme creator; Jinx never knew her mother that well, mainly because she always was locked up in her room, recharging after a long day at work or lamenting after a heated debate with Hidean. After learning of her death, however, Jinx laments never opening up to her and misses her dearly.
Axer: At first, Jinx wanted nothing more than to see Axer dead. However, upon learning of her father's treachery, Jinx began to notice that Axer was not that bad of a mech, despite his occupation and she began to respect him a bit, despite her intents not to.
Kros: Jinx's favorite client; this mech is living credit spouter and Jinx is willing to take on any missions he has for her due to his ability to raise his payments without batting an optic. It's a bit cryptic how he makes so much money but Jinx doesn't care that much; she gets payed and that's all that matters to her.
Jumpdrive: Jinx loves this mech more than she can say but she prefers not to admit it or show it. It's no secret that she is a murderer who has had her fair share of macabre all for the sake of a few credits. She enjoys her occupation too much to let it go and she prefered to leave Cybertron before forging a strong relationship with the mech, knowing that he would only get hurt if he got close enough to her.
Climaxx: Jinx loves riling up this femme's anger; it's been a while since Jinx was able to find another bot who matched her skill with vibroblades so when she found out that Climaxx was more than capable of fighting Jinx in a one on one duel, Jinx was absolutely ecstatic. Jinx doesn't particularly like the femme, she's too serious, she says, but she does respect her as a soldier.
Silverwing: Jinx likes flirting with the mech only because it earns her a free duel with Climaxx; Jinx will be the first to admit that Silverwing is the handsomest mech she has ever seen in her life but she never forgets to remind everyone that she prefers her mechs with both looks and brains, which is something that 'Wing lacks, according to her.
Euroscope: Jinx loves challenging this mech when it comes to sniping; Euroscope's precise manner and meticulous personality are a great match for her natural sniping abilities and she never hesitates to pull up a wager when she's talking with him. It's not that hard getting him to comply; with all the credits she has accumulated, it's not too difficult to give up a few rounds of Visco at Maccadams.
