Transformers - Tempus Exitium
Laserbeak is a follower, not a leader. In fact, he can often be found perched atop the shoulders of either Soundwave or whoever leads the Decepticons at a particular time. He can be utterly depended on to complete any mission that he is assigned.
Laserbeak is also an interrogator, though he is rarely depicted in that role, more often seen (or rather not seen) as a spy, roosting on some obscure perch, playing voyeur and eavesdropping on Autobot conversations. His backpack features two ruby-powered independently-targetable lasers that he uses to torture his subjects with. He’s a coward, though, and when his ruby supplies run low, he transforms from ruthless condor to squawking chicken.
? BCE (Before the Great War)
Megatron Origin 2 – Laserbeak worked with Soundwave when he approached Megatron with a gift of weapons and technology. Megatron spotted spies, and together with Buzzsaw, Laserbeak knocked out Fastback, who was killed by Megatron as an example. Bumper was questioned, but he refused to answer. Laserbeak was the specialist for this, and together with Soundwave read his mind. Bumper was quickly killed after this.
