The Maximal character I played on Beast Wars: Transformers MUSH from April 1997 to December 1999.


Name: Argen
Faction: Maximal
Beast Mode: Gray Fox
Function: Surveillance

Quote: "Be careful what you say about tree spirits."

Note: Argen is bold in familiar territory, but very cautious elsewhere. This applies to her attitude towards others as well. Very attuned to the rhythms of nature and often smilingly alludes to mystical "spirit beings" living in the natural world. In Beast mode, she is a grey and red-brown fox, usually hidden in a tree to spy on Predacon activity. The ability to climb means a lot to Argen, and as she can't accomplish this as easily in Robot mode, she is reluctant to transform. When she does decide to change to Robot form, you know she must be doing something definite.


Argen has been described as cold, withdrawn, reserved, even "prim". Something of a loner, with a tendancy to keep to herself out in the Pine Bluffs near the Axalon, she is not completely adverse to company but only rarely actively seeks it out. Among those she considers friends—although in most cases it would take some effort to get her to admit it—are Velociripper (Utahraptor Beast Mode), Flipoff (Sugar Glider Beast Mode), Otterax (Otter Beast Mode), Impulse (Impala Beast Mode), and Foxtrax (Red Fox Beast Mode).


Name: 'Argen', part of the scentific name of her Beast Mode species, means 'Silver' in Latin, logically enough for a Gray Fox. Quite how she chose the name has never come to light, but no doubt she had her reasons. She pronounces her name as [ Are-gehn ]. The 'g' is soft. Which means 'Arrrggghhh!' can also be used as an OOC attention getter.


Beast Mode Description:

Argen is, to all outward appearances, a female member of the Gray Fox species, which bears the scientific name Urocyon cinereoargenteus. At forty-odd inches or so in length, she is large for her kind but not unduly so. Her coat is grizzled grey, edged by rusty reddish brown along her sides, inner legs, and neck, contrasting with the white on her throat and undersize. A dark stripe runs down her spine to merge with the black tip of her bushy tail.
     Argen's long-nosed face is framed by a pair of alertly pricked triangular ears, on their outer sides a rust red. The rest of her face is grizzled grey, the only exceptions her white throat and the black lines that run from the outer corners of her eyes. Those eyes, a ruddy brown in color, track every visible movement, even as her ears swivel to follow sound: this Fox does not miss much.

Robot Mode Description:

Argen is a slender robot, little larger than a Human. In color, she is mainly a silvery grey, although panels formed by the grizzled grey and red-brown fur of her beast mode outline her limbs. Her arms end in four-fingered white hands, overshadowed by the slate dark bulk of her dart-grenade launchers, yet balanced by the fox paws on her inner wrists. Similar paws are visible above her dark, treaded feet.
     The coloration of the Gray Fox head on her chest is paralleled by the helmet-incased, vaguely canine look to her robot form head, which bears a black line leading from the outer corner of each glowing orange eye.

OOC Counterpart:

A sometimes-fluffy creature to watch out for, with a well-known interest in consuming guests. She tends to get used as an all-around garbage disposal for junk like twinky apps as well. Wielder of bottles of the famous Guestie Sauce, an ever-ready BBQ, staples, and an occasional FGS.
