Here's a new character I just dreamed up for the TFA Universe. I'm calling him Arias Prime, and while I haven't thought up all of his character details yet, I'm going to have him be a former Elite Guard warrior estranged from the Guard (similar to OP). He commands a small but elite group of warriors who protects against Decepticon uprisings on the outer rim (like the Rodimus team). The energon dagger he wields in his left hand is a legendary item of (as yet) unknown origins, which can deliver a lightning strike of red lightning similar to the Magnus hammer. I'm dreaming up some friends/enemies for him now, so more to come soon.
