Personality & Character
Part junk trader, part merchant, and part mechanic, Daytrader is the kind of person you'll find in any hardscrabble, survival-based economy if you look hard enough. More interested in peddling his (admittedly diverse) array of wares than any hardcore fighting, Daytrader looks out for himself and thus tends to lurk on the periphery of any given conflict—a habit that, in conjunction with his dubious merchandise, irritates his fellow Autobots to no end.
Daytrader served as a supplier to the Autobots hiding in Cade Yeager's scrapyard, scouring Transformer battlefields for usable salvage. Arriving at the scrapyard shortly after Cade, Bumblebee and Hound following their recent trip to Chicago, Daytrader dodged the carelessly-thrown explosives and weathered the more pointed insults from the crew, the Autobots annoyed that he'd yet to provide them with a ship to get them mobile and preferably off-planet.
He instead offered them various bits of scrap he'd found, including Starscream's head, and a functional voicebox for Bumblebee. He noticed the talisman in Cade's jeep, but believed it to be a replica, as the appearance of the real deal would be a sign that getting off-world ASAP would be the best course of action. The trades made, he trundled off to find new wares... and to get away before they realized that the new voicebox would give Bee a voice very much not his own.
Shortly after the arrival of Cybertron in Earth space, Daytrader made good on his old promise and delivered a ship for the Autobots at Cade's scrapyard, which delivered them to Stonehenge for the final battle.
