Firestar is one of the members of Elita One's Autobot resistance and specialized in rescue missions. Practical and unprepossessing, she is nonetheless particularly useful during thefts of Decepticon Energon cubes, as her vehicle mode is capable of transporting large numbers of them.

Four million years ago, Firestar tried to board the Ark, while it was being attacked, with the rest of Elita One's team. The plan failed though, and she and the others appeared to be destroyed.
Firestar participated in a raid on one of Shockwave's energon supply stores, and fell under attack when the group was discovered thanks to Moonracer's carelessness. They managed to escape and the team returned to their hidden base with the stolen energon.
The Decepticons attacked again, however. Trying to capture Elita One, Rumble caused the Female Autobots' underground base to collapse, with most of them in it. They survived and managed to free themselves some time later. In search for their leader, they met up with a team of Earth-stationed Autobots who had come looking for their commander. Firestar was briefly reunited with her friend Inferno and together they helped fight off the Decepticons the Earth-stationed Autobots had gotten themselves in a fight with. She remained on Cybertron with the rest of Elita One's team when Optimus's team returned to Earth.

Firestar, Moonracer and Arcee were strolling around on Cybertron after a battle, when they were attacked from behind by a Decepticon. Only Arcee was quick enough to respond in time, blasting the attacker before her friends came to harm. She then chided her teammates, noting that "War seems to be too tough particularly for females" (sic). Firestar noted with horror that this clearly meant that three beautiful women were in three times as much trouble.
Later, Firestar, Chromia, Moonracer and Elita One celebrated their victory over an absolutely gargantuan Decepticon warrior. Well, Elita brooded, but the others celebrated.
What a caboose! Hoo-ha!
Dreamwave comics continuity
Firestar and the other female Autobots were an elite squad of warriors under the command of the Quintessons.
- The toy that was released as Flareup in the BotCon 2005 exclusive souvenir set with Ratchet was originally intended to be Firestar. However, Hasbro was unable to secure the trademark to her name, so she became a new character. According to Ben Yee, Firestar was planned to have died prior to the events of "Descent Into Evil" to explain the absence. However, this was intentionally omitted from the final version of the convention comic. Consequently, her final fate is unknown.
