From Quiz Transformers: Age of Extinction
Cade Yeager was a struggling inventor who lives in Texas. He was a single father trying to raise a daughter, Tessa, who just graduated from high school. He was an inventor by profession, but not very successful in his trade. Many of his inventions don't quite work right. His employee, Lucas Flannery, ended up paying for many of the things he was trying to fix and resell. At one point, a real estate agent tried to show his house to potential buyers, and he chased her off with a baseball bat. In searching a run-down movie theater for salvageable items, he found and purchased a badly damaged truck -- which turned out to be Optimus Prime.
