-Optimus Prime to Wiretap: Sees her as very reliable, if very unorthodox and difficult to keep in check due to her adaptations to compensate for a lack of robot form.
--Wiretap to Optimus Prime: Has unwavering loyalty, but still hides guilt from him due to the aftermath of her past failing.
-Wiretap to Smokescreen: Feels in debt to him thanks to him saving her life, Wiretap also has a slight crush on him though refuses to admit it. During downtime between missions, Smokescreen usually makes an appearance at motorsport events, especially rallies. During these rally events, Wiretap often joins him to be the recce car for the Subaru team prior to the start of the stages.
An expert in stealth tactics, Wiretap had originally played a key role in stopping several ploys by the Decepticons in the days of the wars on Cybertron. One of her Earth missions in 2005AD (Earth Time) to prevent a Decepticon attack on a gas power plant resulted in a catastrophic failure with the Decepticons successfully bringing the Power Plant to ruin, destroying Wiretap's original Cybertronian chassis in the process. Fortunately she was assisted in her escape by fellow Autobot agent Smokescreen who was sent in to provide distraction should things start to go awry.
Immediately after the demolition of the power plant, Smokescreen managed to salvage Wiretap's spark who was now left without a Cybertronian chassis to control. She was left with limited movement and a limited lifespan, but Smokescreen came up with a solution quickly. He contacted the head of Subaru - the car manufacturer that saved his life by restoring his chassis and body with the help of the autobots - to see if they would be willing to oblige in Wiretap's recovery. Subaru agreed and soon Wiretap was taken straight to Japan to have a solution put in place...
However, without her original chassis available to work from, Subaru could not rebuild Wiretap. It was here, however, she discovered she had an ability similar to high-priority Decepticon Starscream - she could take control of machinery so long as it is inferior or on-par with Cybertronian technology. However it was not as refined as Starscream's ability as Wiretap is now semi-permanently bound to the car she possesses - a 2005 Model Subaru Impreza STi. She could communicate through the driver interface computer in the car. Now that she was able to talk again, Wiretap thanked Smokescreen for saving her from the disaster that she failed to prevent, owing her life to him.
Soon after being bounded to her new body, Wiretap was then fitted with all of the basic Cybertronian equipment, including a standard communications system allowing her to talk without the requirement or limitations of the car's speakers. Wiretap also has Cybertronian hacking software installed, allowing her to listen in on suspect vehicles' communications. Thanks to her being a normal road car instead of a transformer, Wiretap has now been made much more difficult to detect by the enemies of Optimus Prime and the Autobots, allowing her to be a perfect stealth machine, despite the relatively eye-catching body of the car she is in control of.
