Jazz is Optimus Prime’s right hand bot, second in command of the Autobots and a fierce warrior.
Jazz traveled from Cybertron with Optimus Prime, aboard the Ark , and was one of the first be revived millions of years later.
Later he was assigned to Moon Base one, as the Autobots prepared to retake their home world of Cybertron from the Decepticons. The moon was devoured by Unicron, and along with Cliffjumper and Bumblebee, Jazz is the only surviving member of the original Autobot crew of the moon bases.
One thing that Jazz loves above all else about Earth, is the human sense of style. A very stylish character himself, Jazz loves the music and sense of identity every human has.
Jazz is as courageous as he is cool headed, never loosing it during a fight and often assigned the most dangerous missions to himself, not because of ego, but because he can keep his cool.
He is at ease in any culture or environment, easily adapting, learning and improvising his way through the toughest situations. This ability has seen him befriend several alien species and become a well loved member of the Autobots.
Jazz was originally a Martini Porsche 935 turbo.
In the 2007 movie, Jazz was a 2008 Pontiac Solstice.
