Swindle is one of many Decepticons ordered to Earth by Megatron
to cause havoc for the Autobot forces there. He's well suited to the
task. Swindle is not a great fighter, and more, he's dumb as a post, but
he takes great glee in blowing things (any "things") to pieces, and
that's worth something, right? Generally he leaps and hops around the
battlefield like a madman, blasting explosives out of his chest cannon
and laughing uncontrollably. Havoc is a given when he's around. He's
also an enthusiastic but unfortunately ineffectual interrogator. But
don't get him started on
Jolt Dead End, he hates him for some reason.
Sometimes there are lots of him.
On both sides.
