I was reluctant to do this but I decided that, I might as well try. Also, there's been much talk on Quintessa, it seems I can try step in. The Way of a Prime (Part 3) It was believed that as long as you were a descendant of Primus, you were considered a Prime. However modern day Cybertron outlined a law that would smooth things over for all Cybertronians. A decision was made to recognize only 13 Primes officially in order to clarify the idea that Primes are those chosen by Primus to lead. The recognition of 13 Primes was done to discourage uprisings of improper leadership and withhold values that Cybertronian society need to carry. However some Cybertronians were not too keen with this law and proclaimed that they were always Primes going back to beginning. Some of these Cybertronians targeted Sentinel Prime, who lead Cybertron and said that his decision to pass away the Matrix of Leadership to the Seven Primes before him was a hypocritical choice in allowing himself to be Prime. "Primus says that you must be appointed by the Matrix of Leadership to be a Prime..." Some Cybertronians said. Sentinel dismissed the religious zealots and claimed that while they may recognize themselves as Primes, they were in no condition to bring out proper leadership. "Everyone knows your obsession with the Knights." His critics proclaimed. "Maybe they were Primes themselves...." Sentinel fired back. Amongst the debate, there was a sinister presence observing the movements of every day Cybertron. Quintessa had decided to use her Infernocon underlings as spies to form a revenge plot against her former slaves. The Infernocons were granted the ability to disguise themselves as ordinary looking Cybertronians whose optics would feed back footage to Quintessa on what they were doing. Even during the time she enslaved Cybertron, Cybertronians were confused about who she was. She was surely not the original creator of the Cybertronian race as that part they knew had to belong to the Allspark. She may not be a Cybertronian herself as she had half-organic aliens to do her bidding implying that she may be the same race as them. "We Cybertronians may disagree on certain things but one that I assure we all agree on is that we want to forget the painful memory of being that witch's possession." Sentinel said. If there was one thing Quintessa learnt it's that it seems as if that 'Prime' translates to 'God'. "As mighty as either Primus or Unicron then...." Quintessa said to herself and smiled. As she learnt about this information, the Knights at that time were in pursuit of her to help those who may have been enslaved by her. Quintessa knew that she was nothing like the Cybertronians and wondered, "How exactly will these machines look at me as their god once again?" It was then Quintessa forged her staff that she claims would be the vessel in carrying enough power from at least one god, particularly either Primus or Unicron. However Primus was off the table as it was the place that she was driven away from. Quintessa made a journey to survey different galaxies and note how heavy a planet's core is roughly around in order to make her new staff work. At one point, she ventured to the Solar System where she was surprised to find The Fallen. The Fallen recognized her but was in no condition to fight back and was powerless against her. "I have an offer that you wouldn't refuse. An offer that would let you take back what you lost which also let's me take back what I want also." Quintessa proposed. "Are you suggesting we can rule together?" The Fallen asked. Quintessa smiled and placed a hand on the Fallen's face, "You poor miserable soul...I'm not as powerful as I was before. I need your help...." Quintessa said smoothly. As Quintessa spelled out her plans, the Fallen answered, "Yes... I have met him after a long time. He's waiting to get out and he must be stopped...." Quintessa nodded, "I see.... Just tell me where I can find him." Quintessa traveled to Earth where she managed to take form as a human to meet with Unicron. Unicron telepathically asked her why she came here. "To help you fight those who have wronged you as they have wronged me. Let me serve you and free you, if that is all you need right now." Unicron however felt disgusted but realized that he needs the help. Quintessa attempted to use her staff until it backfired. Disgruntled, she left the planet being aware that other Cybertronians were also stranded on Earth. Eventually the Knights caught up with her and demanded that she stop her evil ways. Quintessa battled the Knights with her sorcery until the staff from her was snatched away. During the battle, the Knights learnt that she had proclaimed herself, "The Prime of Life" when formulating her plan. "You dare call yourself that...." The Knights said and in return gave her the infamous title of "Great Deceiver" instead. "Anyone who associates with Primus's mortal enemy is not worthy of being called 'Prime'." - One Knight said. The Knights won another battle against Quintessa and stole the staff. They took it back to Earth to safeguard it. They realized that the planet harbored Unicron and thought they need a safer place. As soon as they learnt about the Matrix of Leadership as well, they decided that its presence is keeping Unicron from being reluctant in emerging out of the surface. "If we stay here, we may decrease the chance of him getting out." "And we can make sure that witch won't come near the next time she wants her revenge."
