Windblade hails from the planet/city of Caminus. She is strong in character, and an even stronger swordswoman, easily matching Drift in combat. However, her body guard and best friend Chromia is sometimes annoyed by her stubbornness.
She has rear talent, being able to converse with the old Metrotitans of Cybertron such as Metroplex. This has earned her the title of Cityspeaker.

- Japanese: Windblade (ウインドブレード Uindoburēdo)
- Mandarin: Fēngrèn (风刃, "Windblade")
The Metrotitan, Caminus, left Cybertron Millennia ago during the days of Cybertron's once powerful empire. Centuries passed and Cybertron was slowly forgotten and became little more than a legend. Camiens like Windblade were raised on tales of Cybertron.
Arriving on Cybertron, Windblade was put in charge of the project and, because of her rare talent of being able to understand the complex, ancient language of the MetroTitans, was named Cityspeaker.

Notes & Trivia
- Windblade is the first "fan-built bot" ever — the result of various polls on Hasbro's official website to determine her character and physical traits... well, most of her traits, as her Japanese motifs weren't an option in the poll and seem to be the work of the design team. In addition to getting a toy, she'll also get a special IDW mini-series written by Mairghread Scott and illustrated by Sarah Stone.
- Her face has "makeup" based upon Japanese kabuki actors.
