this takesplace during the late days of the great war, after the maxi/pred upgrade. "this conflict, the maximals, the war criminals they are. there is no hope for this war after the death of dezzares. but this young purple pred i found on the street, his tragic past would lead him to greatness, to destroy these maximals that claim they are doing good. this bot is our future, i will train him to be like my father, megatron. this planet needs a better class of criminal, and i think i found him.."
