Hispanic high school freshman RAF is quiet, shy and often the most frightened by the dangerous situations presented by the Teens' involvement with the AUTOBOTS. All of that disappears the moment RAF spies any form of software-driven technology, when he becomes instantly engaged and enters "the zone." This comes in handy around AUTOBOT Central Command since RATCHET's knowledge of human technology is lacking. RAF'S savant-like prowess with computers might also be why he's the only human who unerringly understands his AUTOBOT partner, BUMBLEBEE - and often serves as his translator. RAF'S skills in front of a computer screen often end up saving both the humans AND the AUTOBOTS' hides.
