    Loresaur was one of the more peaceful Predacons living on the moon over Cybertron. He was a known addict to knowledge and the prevention of past mistakes, both a professor in a Predacon college and a protest leader fighting for the Predacons to have equal rights to the Maximals.
    Loresaur got so obsessed with learning everything about the past, that he started doing illegal and dangerous mind downloads from Predcon council computer networks, using black market equipment.
    The extreme amount of data loaded directly into his mind started to fragment core programs such as personality and reason in his mind. Eventually Loresaur was wiring his mind into maximal, then even Autobot computers on Cybertron, which led him to the Oricle and top secret knowledge copied from the Matrix itself. Due to his body automatically engaging top notch stealth and strategy using the aquired data, he was rarely seen and impossible to catch.
    Eventually there was almost nothing left of the Predacon Loresaur once was. His mind had been completely filled with historical data, to the point that he no longer functioned on his own at all. Though his body and senses functioned properly, Loresaur was stuck in his own mind with no more conscious thoughts to guide himself on. He had gained ultimate knowledge, but would never again be able to protest with his fellow Predacons, or teach others about the detailed history in his mind.
    Loresaur was eventually found by the Maximals and put away in a stasis pod to sleep, quite possibly forever. That pod was loaded into the Axilon for drop off at Omicron-6.
    When the Axilon passed through time with Megatron's ship in pursuit and crashed on prehistoric earth, Megatron made it a priority to find the stasis pod with Loresaur inside. He was successful, and thanks to a little help from Tarantulas, Loresaur now obeys the commands of Megatron. He can answer almost any question about the past of both earth and cybertron, and knows the greatest war strategies and combat skills that have existed. With the plans Megatron has, that makes Loresaur an asset in the Beast Wars.

    Loresaur's form in the Beast Wars shows multiple symbols of history, including species and races who were destroyed, persecuted, and oppressed. Perhaps somewhere in his spark, a bit of the old Loresaur remains, struggling to come to the surface.
    Little did he know his quest to know the past and spread knowledge of it would lead him into becoming a tool and weapon for one of the most dangerous tyrants ever.

    Other names I considered for Loresaur include:
    Archivus
    Datastream
    Spikewave
    Datalus
    Datalore
    Historicon
    Databasaur

    I always liked this weird figure and wanted to do something with him to make sense of the Native American look. Indians and dinosaurs sure got screwed in history so I just went with that theme.

    I love Beast Wars customs, because unlike alot of people on TFW, I grew up with Beast Wars not G1. This and all your other work is just fantastic.

    Love it! The paint job is beautiful! Great back story. While I grew up on G1, the Beast Wars rekindled my love of the Transformers franchise.

    Incredible work. Beast Wars customs are always a good thing, but the detail work on the beast mode is outstanding. I like the bio, too. Very creative.

    The base figure was Saberback, later released in different colors as Striker, I think.

    I appreciate the comments guys. Has anyone realized he is symbolic of 6 of the most screwed over races/species ever on Earth and (fictionally of course) Cybertron?
    Because fuk oppression, persecution, slavery, and extinction. That's how Loresaur rolls.

    Hmm... Well maybe I will get a shot of the silly flower power mode up then.
    Symbols of screwed-over in history on him-
    Native Americans
    Africa
    Jews
    Autobots
    Predacons
    Dinosaurs
