Though he prides himself on his abilities as an infiltrator and spy, Side Burn may very well be in over his head this time. When the Autobots found out the Decepticon Predacon had begun a cult focused on the grafting of biological tissues to Cybertronic bodies to enhance their combat abilities, Side Burn stepped up to the plate to make his way into the organization. He wasn't prepared for the sheer amount of zeal he found within, and is worried that this is one assignment he might not return from. His position at Predacon's right hand gives him more insight than he could have hoped, and it scares him.
Side Burn's skills are impressive, being crafty in both speech and movement. He's not much of a fighter, but one very good runner. He fears he's going to need every trick he knows and a lot of luck the day he discovers Predacon's true goals... or the day Predacon finds out Side Burn's true purpose.
