When the evil Optimus Primal begins plotting the downfall of democracy and peace with his army of Maximals, his freedom-fighting brother Megatron must band together his own army of Predacons to stop him from conquering the planet Earth! This is my own take on a "Shattered Glass" story. I'm going to be listing the bios of the Maximals and Predacons here and (if I feel like writing them) stories will be posted seperately. Here we go: Armordillo Repurposed Toy: BW Neo Bump Armordillo isn’t the smartest of the Maximals. He is dimwitted and sluggish, but makes up for it with his brute strength. His specialty is ramming backwards into Predacons with his hard shell. His satisfaction when they are crushed into scrap makes the pain worthwhile. In addition to his brute strength he has an optic array, a hidden laser weapon, and a Morningstar melee weapon. Rattrap Repurposed Toy: Botcon Packrat Rattrap is a born egghead. Disgusted by the act of freedom, he prefers to be in the lab with his only friends being the gizmos and gadgets around him. A mad scientist to the other Maximals, he constructs torturous weapons to dismantle and mutilate prisoned Predacons. Rattrap respects Optimus Primal and his leader is always the first to try out Rattrap’s new weapons. Razorbeast Repurposed Toy: BW Neo Randy Razorbeast is the top sniper of the Maximals. His precision is dead-on accurate and most of the time, Razorbeast properly decapitates his target. Whenever said decapitation occurs, he gladly collects the separated heads and displays them proudly in his quarters. However, if Razorbeast misses a shot, he becomes so distraught that he takes one of Optimus Primal’s swords and slices a shred of metal from his back. Despite being a master of sniping, he is a complete jerk to the other Maximals and none of them respect him back. Cheetor Repurposed Toy: BW Nightprowler Cheetor is, to put it simply, bat-shit insane. He's the Cybertronian equivalent of Freddy Krueger, a psychopath, a nutcase, you get the picture. It's needless to say that the other Maximals prefer to avoid Cheetor. Thankfully Cheetor, most of the time, is confined to a small room with a heavily locked door. The only times Primal ever opens the padlocked door is to release the savage Maximal during a huge battle, or to feed Cheetor the remains of former Predacons. If released, Cheetor will jump on to a Pred’s head, mercilessly clawing away at it till nothing remains. Most Predacons, with the exception of Rampage, fear Cheetor and prefer to keep their distance. Rhinox Repurposed Toy: Fox Kids Rhinox Rhinox may have a small processor, but that doesn’t mean he’s stupid. The brute of the Maximals, Rhinox is Optimus Primal’s personal bodyguard. Rhinox will gladly take a bullet for his leader. Or a rocket, grenade, or laser. All have been fired at Rhinox with very little damage showing on his rhinoceros hide. Tigatron Tigatron is the Cliffjumper of Shattered Glass: Beast Wars. When the Maximals won the first Beast War in our universe, Tigerhawk was visited by Vector Prime, one of the original Thirteen. Vector congratulated Tigerhawk on his victory and separated him back into Airrazor and Tigatron. However, as Vector Prime was leaving our dimension, Tigatron was sucked into the vortex landing him in the Shatteredverse of the Beast Wars. Shatteredverse Tigatron was a war veteran who survived many a battle until one of Megatron’s Predacons shot him in the head, killing him instantly. Wolfang Repurposed Toy: BW Predacon Wolfang Wolfang is a lone wolf. He prefers to be alone and does not like interaction with any Maximal. He’s enough of a loner to ignore a battle command from Optimus Primal which enrages the Maximal leader to beating Wolfang senseless. It’s only a matter of time before one of these tantrums kills Wolfang when he least expects it. Polar Claw Repurposed Toy: BW Neo Survive Polar Claw is the (no pun intended) polar opposite of Wolfang. A team player, he believes that fighting will result in victory if the Maximals are banded together. Wolfang’s only friend, he often tries to encourage Wolfang to fight against the good-natured Predacons. Most of the time, Polar Claw has no success and simply utters to Wolfang, “It’s your funeral”... Optimus Primal Repurposed Toy: Universe 03 Optimus Primal The self-proclaimed King of the Maximals, Optimus Primal rules with an iron fist and loathes freedom and democracy. Unlike other Maximals, he despises his beast mode but understands the Energon conditions of the war and will use it to his advantage. The former brother of Megatron, he set out to conquer Cybertron despite his sibling’s pleas and cries. Those calls went unheeded and Cybertron was destroyed in nuclear fallout, prompting the evacuation of both Maximal and Predacon. Now Optimus has his sights set on conquering Earth and one therapod will not stand in his way. Airazor Repurposed Toy: Armada Airazor One of Primal’s brute warriors, Airazor will fight head on with the enemy whatever the conditions. She is brash and rude and will interrupt any conversation providing nothing intellectual whatsoever. Airazor will fight until her very spark is extinguished, or until Optimus signals a retreat. Claw Jaw Repurposed Toy: Transmetal Claw Jaw Claw Jaw just wants to be loved. Whenever he wants to contribute, the other Maximals shove him away like a bug on their shoulder. He is so hated that Optimus doesn’t even allow him his own quarter. He sleeps outside under the water in a poorly constructed home. There is a rumor that Primal and Claw Jaw used to be the greatest allies, but that rumor has been shot down instantly by any Maximal. Snarl Repurposed Toy: Bound Rogue Snarl is all about speed. He is constantly upgrading his body to fit his wild needs for speed. The others find him annoying and constantly trade jokes about whether or not Snarl is going to be scrapped by Primal. Snarl comments that they are jealous and wish to be as fast as he is. He’ll often run up to Cheetor’s door, knock on it, then run away laughing at the insane monster’s growls and roars. Bonecrusher Repurposed Toy: BW Neo Bighorn Intelligent and philosophical, Bonecrusher still has yet to think of any replacement name for himself. Jhiaxus? No. Darkmount? Not really fitting. Bonecrusher prefers the library to the battlefield and will often recite ancient limericks to the Predacons all while bashing their heads in. Cybershark Repurposed Toy: Universe Overbite Cybershark is a silent stalker, preferring to hide under the water surrounding The Axalon until a Predacon happens to walk by. When he spies a Pred, he’ll hum notes sounding like something from a vast, ancient orchestra. He’ll spring up from the water, grab the hapless Predacon and devour it whole. The other Maximals like to tease Cybershark by dipping junk parts into the water using a rod and when Cybershark bites, they pull back and hold him in the air by the string the junk part was on. Silverbolt Repurposed Toy: Universe 03 Silverbolt Silverbolt is a coward, plain and simple. The other Maximals wonder why he chose an eagle-wolf for a beast mode if he intended to stay on the ground the whole time. He cowers behind the other, larger Maximals like Polar Claw. Optimus doesn’t like the way Silverbolt acts and always puts him on patrol though the skies. Silverbolt debates becoming a Predacon just to get Primal out of his fur-feathers. Torca Repurposed Toy: BW Neo Elphaorpha Torca enjoys the taste of Cybertronian metal. He keeps his cannibalistic ways secret from the others and sneaks off in the night to find lone Predacons to devour. The Preds dubbed him “The Beast of Kaon Road” after the city Torca was created. Torca is at home on land or in the water and is one of the only known Maximal Fuzors. Depth Charge Repurposed Toy: Universe 03 Depth Charge Depth Charge is a true warrior. He lives to serve Primal and is one of his favorite fighters to use in battles. Depth Charge follows in Primal’s footsteps almost exactly and despises his beast mode as well. But to tell you the truth, he really does enjoy it more than his Cybertronian jet mode. Night Glider Repurposed Toy: RID Dark Scream Not much is known about Night Glider. He prefers to soar above the Axalon during the day and rests in trees at night. Only Rhinox truly knows who Night Glider really is, and he ain’t telling. Stinkbomb Repurposed Toy: RID Gas Skunk Stinkbomb is a living grenade. Optimus uses him to allow him and his troops to make an escape and have no Predacons following. Stinkbomb doesn’t mind being used as a weapon of warfare since he’s got nothing to live for any other way. Jawbreaker Repurposed Toy: Universe Frostbite Jawbreaker was a failed attempt to clone a mass army of Cheetors for Primal to use at his command. Jawbreaker was originally cast aside by Primal as freak of science, but Polar Claw took him under his wing and taught him the art of combat. Jawbreaker is almost as insane as Cheetor, but slightly saner now thanks to Polar Claw’s teachings. Ramulus Repurposed Toy: Universe Long Horn Ramulus is a rough-n-tough cowboy who doesn’t tolerate nonsense. Described by Rattrap as “chronically insane in the mainframe”, Ramulus loves to ram into Predacons using his Ibex beast mode’s horns. He proudly tears a digit off the defeated Pred’s hands and puts it in a container, displaying it in his quarters. Razorbeast would love to have royalties, but Ramulus simply doesn’t care.
