Hoist was one of the best construction engineers back in Cybertron. Not only his technical skill is admire by the Autobots, his positivity and strength are the most the admire. When the war broke out, he shifted his thorough attention from commercial engineering to aiding the Autobots resistance. Hoist maintained his cheerful, upbeat disposition even though he don't fight on the front lines but his exacting maintenance schedule keeps the Autobots functioning at peak efficiency. He knows that everyone have to be in prime condition to win war against the Decepticons. He don't care the war but must be in prompt for regular check-up.
