    *NEW*Complete List of Transformer Characters and their Persona's!

    I've always enjoyed creating alternate storyline for the action figures I have, and I love to place them into my world and have them cope with it. This is the accumulation of my efforts. "The Kingdom" will be the first of a trilogy encompassing all the events I have thought up. It will include many interesting faces, as you'll see from the first comic. "The Kingdom" is about the ascension of a new Optimus Prime and the trials he must face.

    The Kingdom of Evan

    The Story of Squad Sixteen: A Prelude to Kingdom of Evan:

    Before the Kingdom of Evan was established, many factions waged a war. Robots in Disguise allied with Armada fighters and those from the Beast Wars. Eventually, all of these beings were wiped out at the Battle of Hell's Pass, and only one would survive. The Original Optimus Prime, who gave birth to an organized map of territory that sectioned off all of the factions to different corners. He found another Prime, much like him, and let the new arrival stand at his side. Peace reigned.

    Now, this Optimus Prime has vanished, supposedly never to be seen again. In memoriam, a statue of the great leader was erected at Hell's Pass. We join the leaders of this Kingdom now, in reflection of their wise leader...

    Chapter 1: The King of Us All:

    The Kingdom of Evan has a secret. As the world prepares for a New Prime to usher in a new age of peace, the dissension in the separate factions threatens to topple all that the Original Prime worked for.

    In the middle of this plot, a new Autobot arrives. Armorhide, the smallest of them all, is thrust into the Kingdom of Evan without preparation for what it has in store. What role will this Autobot play?

    Chapter 2: Initiation of the Mighty:

    Few Autobots are able to hold off a Decepticon attack, and even less have the skills needed to fight. At yet, Armorhide seems to have both. This courageous little robot has been thrust into a world that he was not ready to fight within.

    At yet, perhaps this world is not ready for him. Given the opportunity to join the ranks of Squad Sixteen, he is told to trek through the dangerous Legoland, a place filled with more than just the small Legomen. As Armorhide struggles to finish his first mission, he realizes, with dwelling horror, that it may be his last.

    Chapter 3: Hero Rising, Hero Falling

    The Otherworld: a place where all being that do not pertain to the title "Transformer" or "Bionicle" live. It is the one place where you will find Gundam, Marvel Legends, and a few other surprises lurking. However, a rogue group of Bionicle warriors has taken a group of hostages to this place, and so far, it has been a standoff between them and those who enforce law in the Otherworld.

    When all else fails, Squad Sixteen is sent in to keep the peace. Can Jazz, Speed-Dial, and Optimus Primal get the job done, or will they need to call upon an Autobot with a bit more expertise?

    Chapter 4: Crushing the Weak

    The Bionicle are the most plentiful, powerful race in the Kingdom of Evan. The activities they partake in effect the entire Kingdom, for their mastery of the elements and sheer numbers can cause catastrophe. Which is why the Original Prime bestowed Makuta, one of the most powerful beings in their ranks, the title of Lord of the Bionicle Kingdom.

    But Makuta is a mystery. His evil cloaks the land he rules and beyond. As the Legomen evacuate their homes because of threats given by the Bionicle, it is time to overthrow the Lord of the Bionicle Kingdom once and for all. This is a job for Squad Sixteen!

    Who is the King of the Kingdom of Evan?

    ...Where is the Autobot Matrix of Leadership?

    Kingdom of Evan II: The Desert

    Part 1: Lost Souls
    It has been four years since the end of the Second Great War. The Gundam have become a major military faction in the Kingdom and inhabit a majority of the territory, which has now been named "The Desert" because of its barren, empty appearance. Strike Noir, though once thought dead, has returned, and leads the Gundam forces. Under his reign, most beings in the Kingdom consider the Gundam to have gone "Haywire" because they are fiercely fighting for the Subspace Drive they lost during the Second Great War. The Bionicle have retreated far into the darkest corners of the Kingdom- they inhabit caves and abandoned temples. The Crisis Avengers, and the majority of the Otherworld inhabitants, have vanished, save for a select few Marvel Legends that roam the lands. Autobot and Decepticon alike live in a "Safe Zone" called New Autobotria. They are ruled by a Prime Council consisting of Ultra Magnus, Jetfire, and Brawl. Some reckless Autobots and Decepticons have left New Autobotria and live in small Safe Zones of their own- often hunting Gundam in their free time. A powerful new Bumblebee leads the New Autobotrian Secret Police. There is an urban legend that, deep within The Desert, there exists a new Kingdom, ruled by three brothers- This is unconfirmed. Megabolt has not been seen since he left New Autobotria three years ago. Armorhide has just returned from a two-year absence from the Kingdom.

    In the midst of a new age, the Ancients create a new Optimus Prime from the souls of the past Primes and task him with destroying a disturbing presence they can feel lingering in the Kingdom. They are no longer confident in their own powers since the Second Great War and are wary of facing the darkness themselves. This new Optimus Prime has befriended Armorhide and they are traveling the Desert together in search of clues- as well as other lost souls who are in need.

    Part 2: Rule of Three
    The mysterious siblings of chaos have achieved part of their plan- and now, the Multiversal Management Society has been alerted to the crisis. If all goes as planned, the universe may end. Or perhaps, that is not the plan at all. As Optimus Prime and Ratchet travel the Desert, they will meet the mysterious blademaster and finally enter the Kingdom of Three Brothers- Ravina will attempt to understand the nature of the Kingdom of Evan, and War Machine will attempt to rally the various factions against the growing Gundam threat. After all... rebirth begins through destruction.

    Part 3: Fallen Grace

    Part 4: Before the Storm

    Kingdom of Evan III: Twilight of the Gods

    The Ascension has begun! After the storm has arrived, the beings that still remain trapped in "the world between worlds" must find a way to reinstate the balance of the world- and perhaps discover the secret behind their existence.

    What is the secret of the Kingdom of Evan? Who is the King? Stay tuned to find out.

    Kingdom of Evan: Appendix of Important Terms, Locations, and Events
    Terms-
    "Alternity" Theory- While not a completely accepted theorem, a large amount of beings in the Kingdom of Evan believe in a story of creationism called the "Alternity" Theory. It states that one being, via using an object of power, created a series of dimensions, or alternate realities. Some believe that these "Alternities" are simply lands separated by large amounts of space, and that each "wave" of new beings that enters the Kingdom is sent from another "Alternity". New Prime is a strong advocate of this theory.

    Ancients- Long before the creation of the Kingdom of Evan, three beings were created with the ability to alter reality. Some say they were summoned (or perhaps, imported) from a far away "Alternity" and their power is that of some deity who summoned all of the toys to the Kingdom of Evan. They have the power to slow and speed-up time, control and reshape any object in the Kingdom, and drain the life from any being. The Ancients live on two planes of reality: one being the normal and another astral plane, where they "judge" those who have suffered fatal wounds. Their decision (guilty or innocent) decides the fate of the dying inhabitant. They are said to have their limits, though none have been found. Currently, they have vanished.

    Armor-classes- Each Transformer is unique. However, their armor-class is not. Armor-classes are usually named after the wave that the Transformers arrive in. Each armor-class has it's own strengths and weaknesses. Currently, only a few Armor-classes exist in the Kingdom of Evan:
    "Classic" and "Universe" Armors: Are well-balanced armor. They have good defensive ability and take a fair amount of physical and energy-based damage.
    "Moving" Armor: Takes a large amount of physical and light-weapon damage, but are not resistant to heat and cold.
    "Animated" Armor: Is an extremely agile and flexible type of armor that takes large amounts of physical damage, but is weak against energy-based attacks.

    Bodyguards- The Ancients, having the power to take life, can also give life, and have done so to many beings. Those that they have given life to are usually assigned the role of "Bodyguard" to the Ancients and will bend to their every whim. At first, the bodyguards were simplistic beings, but continuous experiment by the Ancients caused extremely powerful guards called "Neo-Shifters" to rise. Currently, there are three bodyguards to the Ancients, two of which were just recently locked away.

    Brigade- Decepticon attack-units. The term "brigade" was first used by Megatron during the Great War. Usually comprised of four members, new Decepticons were told to find a brigade and stick with it, so there was hardly any altercations to brigade lineups. There was no strategy to them, though each brigade was named after the commanding officer, i.e. "Shockwave's Brigade". Currently, they have been disbanded.

    Kingdom of Evan- A group of estates divided up by type of inhabitant. Established by the Original Prime at the end of the Great War, this Kingdom is "ruled" by New Prime and order is enforced by Autobot Squads. Apparently, this is not the first time this world has been called the "Kingdom of Evan".

    Squad- The Autobot equivalent of a law-enforcing unit. The term "squad" was first used by the Original Prime when preparing for the Battle of Hell's Pass. The Original Prime used Squads as strengthened fighting forces with well-balanced, specialized fighters comprising each. Squads usually have five or less members, all specializing in certain aspects. Currently, they are assigned to certain regions of the Kingdom of Evan.

    Waves- Every time a group of beings enters the Kingdom of Evan, it is considered to be a new "wave" of inhabitants. As the number of inhabitants already living in the Kingdom begins to shrink, a new wave comes in their place. This often happens with Transformers, especially during times of strife. For example, for a long time, Transformers with Armada-Class Armor lived in the Kingdom, but as they died off in the Great War, Energon-Class Armor Transformers came in a wave to replace them.

    Locations(Details coming soon)
    The Below Place- The tunnels and area below the Kingdom of Evan; the entrance to this area is located by a trench in the Otherworld. Currently, it is off-limits to all beings, even Autobots.

    Crimson Plateau- A large mountain that plateaus, located in Legoland. It is red in color, hence its title. This is not only the place where the Kingdom of Evan's Axis Forces meet, but it is also home to the great supercomputer that controls the energy-draining-rate of Restraining Bolts.

    Cutromep Tower- Also known as "the Crimson Tower", this mass and the Crimson Plateau are said to be the twin summits of Legoland. Cutromep tower is where Squad Three usually meets as well as the area that Armorhide fled to. It was a Bionicle Stronghold for a long while.

    The Four Estates- Autobotria, Decepticongi, Legoland, and Otherworld.

    G-Kingdom- The Gundam Armada's personal grounds, located in the Otherworld.

    Hell's Pass- The sacred ground where the Original Prime, allied other beings, and his Autobot Squads defeated the Decepticons in a battle that would decide who would rule the world. It is located in Legoland and considered a place where no beings should build a colony. There stands a statue of the Original Prime overlooking the field. Before the end of the Great War, Hell's Pass earned this name because it looks like a viable escape point, but is a dead-end, and all beings positioned on the Crimson Plateau can pin down a being within Hell's Pass. If properly guarded it would be an excellent base of operations- unfortunately, more times than one it was not, and it is considered a death-trap.

    Kingdom-42- A Legomen outpost in Legoland, those who live there mine Ore and have an ongoing business with the Decepticons, who can carve crystals from the substance. However, no Decepticon is allowed in the area, considering their past attempts to steal Ore from the colony.

    Kraxis-Otherwise known as the Hall of the Ancients, Kraxis is located in Decepticongi. It is a large field overlooked by the actual "Hall of the Ancients", which is currently sealed shut.

    Events(Details coming soon)
    The Age of Prophecies- Shortly after the Great War, the Seer arrived in the Kingdom of Evan and made her home atop Cutromep Tower. The Original Prime, before making last-minute adjustments to the Kingdom's layout, told New Prime that he should see the Seer for any leadership questions he may have. After his disappearance, the Seer began to create prophecies of what is to come, including the most important of them all, which told of the smallest Autobot arriving and ushering in a new era of peace.

    The Battle of the Below Place- Technically, the battle did not take place in the actual Below Place, but right outside the tunnel that leads into it. Shortly after the battle ensued, the Original Prime was pushed into the Below Place, followed diligently by Megatron. The two fought for three days, their echoes heard at the mouth of the tunnel. All the other combatants at the mouth of the tunnel were unable to take orders from their commanders, so they created a momentary truce and decided to team up and extract the two leaders from the Below Place. Surprisingly enough, when they reached Prime and Megatron, the two were not fighting but conversing, they themselves having also formed a truce and begun to venture out of the Below Place. It is said this battle was when the idea of the Kingdom of Evan was first formed in the Original Prime's mind. There was no true victor, for both sides agreed to a truce in order to save their commanders.

    The Battle of Hell's Pass- The most crucial battle in the Great War, Megatron challenged all who were willing to meet his forces at Hell's Pass and engage in a titanic battle, where the last one standing would be proclaimed ruler of all the world. Obviously, the Autobots answered the call, as well as the Bionicle, Gundam, Clone Armada, and Crisis Avengers, who chose to side with whomever they believed would win the battle, despite Megatron's warning that only the strongest of them all would rule over them, not their faction. Eventually, all beings fell except for Megatron and the Original Prime. No one was conscious to witness their battle, but when the others rose, they found only the Original Prime. Megatron was nowhere to be found and could not be contacted, and the Original Prime only gravely shook his head and answered "the only way to defeat Megatron was to fight him to the death... or worse." The Original Prime was then named ruler of the world, and he set his plans for the Kingdom of Evan into motion. Obviously, it was an Autobot victory.

    The Battle of Kraxis- By far the most gruesome of all the battles in the Great War, the Original Prime was visiting the Ancients in order to discuss an important issue regarding the end of the War. Autobot, Gundam, and Bionicle forces were standing watch at the Hall of the Ancients when Megatron, Shockwave, and Brawl's Brigades appeared, Megatron demanding to know what the Original Prime was up to. The Autobots had to hold off Megatron's forces until Prime was finished, and many of the Armada and Cybertron Armor-class were killed in the fight. The Original Prime returned and quickly withdrew his troops. It is considered a rousing Decepticon victory.

    The Battle of Quilla- One of the more obscure battles in the Great War, the only important event that occurred here was the death of Darth Vader at the hands of Strike Noir Gundam. The Emperor and his Clone Armada would then suffer great losses against the strengthened Gundam forces, eventually being wiped out and having his army spread across the world.

    The Establishing of the Kingdom of Evan- Once the Great War was officially declared finished, there was still much to be done. The Decepticons needed to be brought into line as well as the Bionicle. However, the Original Prime elected Brawl as the new leader of the Decepticons, leaving Starscream at his original position of Second-in-Command of the Decepticons, very aggravated and bitter, but a little content, knowing that Brawl recognized his ability as a superior warrior. The Original Prime elected Makuta as the leader of the Bionicle, knowing that Makuta had long forgotten his arrogance and greed and become a just hero. Then, he took the minorities of the world: Marvel Legends, Gundam, Clones, and other assorted toys and allowed them to make the choice of spreading themselves throughout the Kingdom or uniting under their own Estate. They chose to create the Otherworld, and the Original Prime sectioned off their own Estate. Once finished, he sorted out the various means of peaceful business that would drive the Kingdom, mainly the Ore trade, which was comprised of Legomen harvesting Ore, Decepticons crafting stored Ore into crystals, and Otherworld merchants selling the crystals for whatever purpose they could be used for. Once this was finished, he left his successor, the New Prime, in charge of creating a fair justice system, as well as the Kingdom itself. The Original Prime then disappeared, and the Kingdom of Evan was completed.

    Ah, Radioactive Ravage, you finally joined the comic making fray! :) 

    Nice prelude, I see you opted for a style of image treatment similar to Obsidian's Lament (what kinda of image treatment is it anyway?)



    A bit of constructive criticism if you don't mind:

    - Most obvious is the shear height and width size of the whole comic, it's too big. And as a result, the file size is rather large as well. If possible, try not to go beyond 800 pixels in width.

    - In the second panel, I see a date stamp there, which kinda mars the feel of the whole comic. See if you can turn off the date stamp on your camera.

    - Nice choice of text and speech bubbles, but the part of the bubble that indicates the origin of speech (not sure what this is called) doesn't look as nice...

    Uhh, to be honest it think it got worse. >_<

    The recent ones are very blurred and grainy... (intentional you say?)

    Though I notice that the recent ones are not using the camera flash (which surprisingly, after the image treatment, looks splendid).

    The beginning may seem rushed to the action, but after it all, there's a lot of character development.

    They're NeoShifters, from Mega Brands. They're a main piece of the story.
