Transformers Chronicles of Ages Table of Contents: Chapter 1: Flight of the Ark Chapter 2: The Living Planet Chapter 3: First Contact For starters, this is an original fiction series based on my own collection. It uses elements from Generation One, Beast Wars, the Unicron Trilogy, and a few bits from the Live action franchise with an original story. Here’s the cast I base the characters off of. Of course you can imagine the characters any way you want, but it terms of weaponry and even size, these are my references with some biographies to fill in the background: Autobots: Zeta Prime – [Armada Powerlinx Optimus Prime] Current leader of the Autonomous Robot Division (Autobots) and bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. Grandus – [Energon Ultra Magnus] Zeta’s primary adviser can integrate with his leader in a variety of ways to keep enemies off balance. Sky Garry – [Armada Powerlinx Jetfire] Originally a scientist/explorer and pacifist, he joined the Autobots after seeing the brutality of Soundwave’s experiments. Determined to help stop the Decepticons. Commander Optronix – [Generations Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime] Current leader of the tenth platoon. Was promoted after the death of Sentinel Prime, he has been rebuilt on many occasions due to his lack of regard for his own well-being, and stubbornness in refusing the help of others. (Originally represented as Titanium War Within Optimus Prime, and then by Generations War for Cybertron Optimus) He used to be a cargo hauler in a company run by Kup. Bumblebee – [Generations War for Cybertron Bumblebee] Formerly maintained security systems for an energon processing facility, he’s become a valuable scout and saboteur. His experiences have led to him assimilating demolition skill sets. (think G1 Bee meets Rattrap) Prowl – [Titanium War Within Prowl] Head of security. Not as big an ass as he is in the comics. Jazz – [Generations Fall of Cybertron Jazz] Not a ninja with magic powers! Chief of communications and second-in-command, he prefers to study cultures of other species but he is deceptively skilled in unconventional combat. Grimlock – [Titanium War Within Grimlock] He’s a former Champion of the Gladiatorial games at the Coliseum (something like being former Pro-Wrestling World Champion), impulsive and aggressive. He tends to get in trouble, but extremely effective in taking out multiple enemy units in succession. Jetfire – [Titanium War Within Jetfire] Former member of the Cybertron Arial forces, used to answer directly to Starscream (an old friend and a commander). He betrayed the Decepticons to join the Autobots. The Wreckers: Autobot subgroup who specializes in guerilla warfare and demolitions. Grindcore – [’07 movie Grindcore] Leader of the wreckers, he used to be an engineer, and Demolishor was his partner. When he realized the experiments his partner was conducting behind his back and with the Decepticons (which lead to the creation of the Constructicons), he signed up for the Autobots. Landquake – [Energon Landquake] Used to maintain upkeep of Crystal City, he went into hiding when the Decepticons attacked the city and remained in seclusion afterwards in a state of depression. Grindcore convinced him to join the fight after he showed him more of the damage the Decepticons have caused. Landquake wishes to end the conflict as soon as possible. Roadblock – [Energon Roadblock] Longrack – [Cybertron Longrack] Two former Constructicons who were rescued from Demolishor’s experiments by Grindcore, they’ve stuck with Grindcore ever since. Decepticons: The Four Generals Megatron – [Generations War for Cybertron Megatron] Straxus – [Generations Darkmount] Thunderwing – [Generations Thunderwing] Galvatron – [Classics 2.0 Galvatron] Used to be generals of the Cybertronian military, they rebelled after an extraterrestrial attack left Cybertron’s military decimated. They blame the lack of support from the Council for the loss of their friends. Various labor drones were weaponized to make them an army which they now use to conquer the planet. Special Forces Megabolt - [Titanium Megatron] Combaticons - [Generations Fall of Cybertron Combaticons] Scrapmetal Drones – [Cybertron Scrapmetal] Under Megatron’s command, they make up the majority of ground force assaults. Army Demolishor – [Energon/Armada Demolishor] Tankor Drones – [Universe Tankor, The vehicon not the classics 2.0 figure] Straxus’ forces based out of his fortress, Darkmount. They make up the bulk of Decepticon defense forces and artillery strikes. Air Force Starscream – [Energon Starscream G1 Redeco] Thundercracker – [Titanium War Within Thundercracker] Obsidian Drones – [Universe Obsidian] Thunderwing’s forces specialize in air strikes and surveillance. Tend to be overly aggressive, like their General. Space Fleet Cyclonus – [Classics 2.0 Cyclonus] Scourge – [Generations Scourge] Sweep Drones – [Titanium Scourge] The space forces led by Galvatron are well-trained fighters and are extremely loyal to General. Sometimes they act independently from other Decepticons and seem to have their own motives. Chapter 1: Flight of the Ark, pending.
