    We got Ratchet's in Thrill of the Hunt

    We got OP's in Along came A Spider

    We got both the background of Bulkster and Bumbler in Autoboot Camp today

    I think he was a former Con who realized the war was pointless due to an incident in a battle on an organic planet where maybe he got hurt and was nursed back to good health by the planet's organic citizens. Therefore, he quit the Cons and then joined the Bots joining the Elite Guard. But since Magnus didn't like his organic loving or his lone wolf attitude, Magnus demoted him to OP's crew

    What are your theories of our favorite loner nature-loving ninjabot's background?

    Not convinced Prowl was a 'Con, myself.

    simple,

    he probably trained, but had a real trouble with authority (aka sensai).

    No way he was a Con. He doesn't have anything like that in him.

    More than likely, he washed out of the Ninja training program due to his inability to get along with others.

    What he has trouble with ninja teamwork?

    Actually that's not a bad idea.

    Maybe Prowl though being a excellent fighter still failed his rookie cyber ninja academy graduation test due to not teaming up with his squad teammates. (Don't linch me I'm not a Narutard)

    Prowl is a loser drop out ninja from a hidden robot ninja village. BELIEVE It. Maybe they exiled him to build bridges?

    Prowl went through a process similar to blackarachnia at the behest of his Sensei, shredder, making him into a techno-organic turtle. When he was cured, he, and his three brothers, retained their respect for the organic while still being the world's most fearsome fighting team.

    Most likely due to not answering to Authority figures.

    Maybe it was the reverse of the 'con scenario. Maybe he decided to help an organic that was under arrest by the elite guard for some terrible crime, but in truth it was framed and Prowl somehow knew this or felt it and decided to help the lil squishy. Thus freeing it into the wild, resulting in his banishment from Blungeons training circle and thus ending him up with the loser bots.

    Or it was cultural misunderstanding that got the organic into trouble, and that was what started Prowl's fascination with them. And maybe the organic was something of a nature martial artist and taught Prowl some thing's about patience and stealth of the predator.

    Yeah Im not with the con and from what Ive seen I dont think he had any interaction with organics prior to the series.

    Im with Takara Destron I'm hoping they use Oilslick as part of Prowls background and yeah im thinking they will go with Prowls loner issues that he seems to have largely gotten past will be cited as one of if not the major reason he didnt complete his Cyber Ninja training ad join the elite guard.

    Nah, he couldn't, because Optimus Prime never encountered any Decepticon before, nor did Prowl. In fact, the only Autobot to have ever faced a Decepticon in the core team is Ratchet, way back then in the great war.

    i agree he didnt really respect prime but after prime saved his life he started to respect him a bit more but i think he got expelled from ninja training school for not respecting authority

    Prowl strikes me as someone who's been betrayed repeatedly in the past, and thus has learned he can only rely on himself and that words are worth little. So therefore he automatically doesn't believe it when someone says 'you can trust me/us' and instead requires action as proof.
