About: COMPLETED! Thanks all who contributed characters! Hey, TFWers! In the near future(depends on how long this will take), I’m going to be working on a second fan-fic to go alongside Transformers: Heroes (Which will continue to be updated and added onto, this will be a secondary thing). Now, this will not be of an episodic nature, like TF: Heroes, but will be of an epic movie length and quality (About the rough equivalent of six episodes of TF: Heroes). The story will be titled: “Transformers: The Forgotten”, and in addition to my regular mixes of prominent and obscure characters, I want to have a decent amount of fan-made characters. I am contributing two characters, and I want you all to make the rest. I figured it’d be cool to have characters made by other people to become a part of my universe. This will take place in the Nova Universe; just like Heroes. Starting with Heroes; I decided that all my fanfics would be in the same universe, and I have to say, it’s been quite fun making my own universe, and I think it would be awesome for others to add characters to it (if you want, of course). P.S. Feel free to comment on this idea, on my fan-characters, or on other peoples fan-characters, or contribute to the combiner team name discussion, even if you don't wish to make a character. Characters: These are the characters so far that are in the story are: The Forgotten Cybertronians: Existing Characters: Rotorstorm (G1/LSOTW) Arcee (Pink 1st Movie) Eject (Perfect Effect version, except a little bit larger in scale) Starscream (G1-WFC Hybrid Body, Modified Armada Personality) Scavenger (G1) Fan-Characters: Rawbones (Movie-WFC Hybrid Style) Thunderflash (Classicified G1 Seeker) Faction Description: Formally squads of Autobots and Decepticons who fought each other for a long time, until they realized that the rest of the universe had forgotten them, and hadn’t come to rescue them from Asteria, the planet they were stranded on. So they declared peace, and have spent multiple decades as teammates and allies to the world they now call home, and will do anything to help its people. The Autobot Elite Guard: Existing Characters: Strafe (Classicified G1) Flak (Timelines (Wings Of Honor)) Fan-Characters: Nitro (WFC-G1 Hybrid, with some Classics influences) Mach Dart (WFC-Armada Starscream Hybrid Body) Jetspeed (Cybertron Thunderblast Body) One Slot (See Below) Faction Description: The Autobot Elite Guard is the…well…elite branch of the Autobot Military. Unlike the Wreckers, they are stationed on Cybertron, however, they still leave at times to other places like the Wreckers do. The team used to be made up of the combiner team: Safehaven, and Flak, until one of the limbs, Hunter, was killed in action. However, since Strafe has been transferred to the Elite Guard from the Ancient Power Weapons division by his own request, they are now able to form a new version of Safehaven. Currently, the Elite Guard is attempting to locate Shockwave and his team of ‘true’ Decepticons. The Guard is led by Mach Dart, who forms the torso and head of Safehaven. Shockwave’s True Decepticons: Existing Characters: Shockwave (WFC) Breakdown (G1-WFC Hybrid) Fan-Characters: Cryonix (Cybertron-Voyager Starscream Body) Kaisaur (Cybertron Wreckloose Body with a Seekerish head, half-cracked, and with razor-sharp teeth in his mouth) Treadway (Cross between Animated Blitzwing and a WFC Autobot Soldier) Faction Description: Shockwave no longer finds logic in Megatron, or in his campaigns, and has left, taking soldiers loyal to him and his true cause. Shockwave is currently scouring the Milky Way Galaxy for a planet that didn’t belong to the Decepticons or had Autobot protection, that he was able to take over with his small, but powerful army of drones and Decepticons. But he quickly realizes that there aren’t any planets left that weren’t defended by a powerful alien force, Transformers or otherwise. All but one, that no longer exists on star charts. Fan-Made Character Information: Characters Made So Far: Name: Nitro Affiliation(s): Autobot Elite Guard; Sentrabots Occupation(s): Soldier, Right Leg Of Safehaven Colors: Dark Blue, Silver, Black, with a little light blue Body: Turns into cross between G1 Kup and WFC Sideswipe; a car with a truck bed, and small smoke stacks. Looks like thicker and more rugged WFC Sideswipe in robot mode. Size/Power: Small/Normal Weapons/Abilities: Nitro is super strong and durable, while also being fairly fast. He carries a large high-intensity laser rifle. Personality: Nitro is your average Autobot. He wants to save the universe and defeat Decepticons. He is a good fighter, and knows it. He will do anything to save his friends, even sacrifice himself. When it comes to things he think he is good at, he’ll push the person aside because he thinks he can do things better. History: Nitro was created to be a soldier. Relatively young in the grand scheme of things, he has never known a time without the war. He was put into the Sentrabot team, and after successfully completing multiple missions as a team, they got turned into Safehaven. Made By: Galvanitro Name: Cryonix Affiliation(s): Shockwave’s True Decepticons; Seekers Occupation(s): Warrior, Pilot Colors: White with some light green and medium blue Body: Cybertron-Voyager Starscream with some Classics influences Size/Power: Large/Normal Weapons/Abilities: Cryonix has two powerful swords that can flip out of each arm. He also carries a small pulse rifle. Personality: Cryonix is so full of himself, that if he was the size of his ego he could kick Cybertron like a soccer ball. He sides with Shockwave for the simple fact that he is more strategically sound then “Lord” Megatron, and believes that Shockwave will win the war for the Decepticons, not Megatron. Of course, Shockwave will need Cryonix’s power and skills to succeed in this endeavor, at least that’s what Cryonix tells everyone. History: Created in New Cybertronia not long before the great war, Cryonix always felt that he was destined to be a great and powerful being, something more than a pilot and member of the Seekers. He went to Kaon and got illegal weapon upgrades to his chassis, and fought in the gladiator battles at The Helix, proving that he was a great warrior, winning many matches. When the war broke out, he was one of the first to join the Decepticons, and reveled in what he felt was his true purpose in his life. He had ambitions to become a high-ranking officer, part of what prompted him to join Shockwave after he broke away from Megatron and the others. Made By: Galvanitro Name: Kaisaur Affiliation: Shockwave's True Decepticons Occupation: Biological Engineer Colors: Purple,Neon Green and Yellow Body: Cybertron Wreckloose with a Seeker-ish head (Left eye is larger than the other and cracked)and the mouth is filled with razor sharp teeth. Size/Power: Medium/Normal Weapons/Abilities: Energon Scimitar (Jigsaw),Ion pistol (Roundhouse), Scraplet-Insecticon hybrids. Can control his Scraplet-Insecticon "Hounds" with his mind,can cameoflage himself in any environment. Personality: Kaisaur is always finding a way to make Scraplets more terrifying,risking his life and the lives of his cohorts for his "pets". He always talks to himself and creeps around,watching and formulating a plan to kill anyone and everyone he meets,just in case. He names his weapons and Scraplets individually based on their personalities, yes, he thinks his weapons are alive. History: Kaisaur was once Cybertron's greatest Biological Engineer,creating new breeds of Turbofoxes and other creatures for hunting and breeding. But one day something changed, he went insane an became obsessed with Scraplets and other cybertronian vermin. He bred hybrids that neerly killed both him and his lab assistents. During the war he defected to the Decepticons and later gained control of his creations. Made By: Shatterpoint Name: Treadway Affiliation(s): Shockwave's True Decepticons Occupation(s): Decepticon Military Tactics Colors: Primary - Black, Secondary - Red Body: Mode 1 - WFC hover vehicle, very sleek and fast. Mode 2 - (drops down on to treads) bulky armored tank. Size/Power: Medium/Normal Weapons/Abilities: A melee sword, and the two cannons on his back from the tank mode (think Animated Blitzwing) Has the ability to slip through the shadows unseen. History/Personality: Treadway used to be an Autobot trooper. During a battle he suffered severe damage to his processor causing a severe case of schizophrenia. The Decepticons took him for information purposes only, but he now believes the Autobots caused his current state of mind and has pledged his allegance to the Decepticons. Treadway is very unpredictable and uses his two vehicle modes to his advantage. He can either be super sneaky, or brutally powerful. His dual-mindedness can make him a very hard-to-beat foe. Made By: Soundwave338 Name: Thunderflash Affiliation(s): Forgotten Cybertronian, Seekers Occupation(s): Air Superiority Body: Standard G1 Seeker Colors: Mostly light purple with some white chest plates, a white face and red stripes on the wings. http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/9/9c/MmteSeekers2.gif - bottom row, middle character Size/Power: Medium/Normal Weapons/Abilities: Arm-mounted lasers, flashbang grenades Personality/History: One of the vast number of disposable attack soldiers known as the Seekers, Thunderflash's only unique ability is his ability to manufacture and use grenades that explode with a bright light, temporarily blinding his enemies. He was part of Starscream's unit assigned to Asteria and has followed his commander into peace with the Autobots. Whilst a loyal soldier, years of being treated as disposable by the Decepticons have left him with low self-esteem and an edge of suspicion. In addition, if a social situation becomes too awkward for Thunderflash he has the tendency to fire off one of his grenades and run away. Made By: doomboy536 Name: Jetspeed Affiliation(s): Autobot Elite Guard, Sentrabots Occupation(s): Warrior, right arm of Safehaven Colors: White body with silver on her helmet and blue lower arms and legs, golden optics Body: Cybertron Thunderblast, but more muscular and without her helmet. Helmet is more streamlined and has a V-shaped crest over her optics. Size/Power: Small/Normal Weapons/Abilities: Weapons consist of a Gatling gun for heavy-duty firepower, a missile launcher, two small daggers and a double bladed staff. Abilities consist of high speed on water and excellent endurance on land. Has brief flight capability, but can only fly for ten hours before landing. Personality/History: She is a kind and caring femme when out of battle, but when in battle she is a serious fighter and a powerful opponent. No one wants to tangle with her, especially when she's on your tail! Made By: Titanic X Name: Rawbones Affiliation: Forgotten Cybertronians Occupation(s): Heavy Weapons Specialist/Frontline Soldier Size/Power: Medium/Normal Colors: Black with purple details. Body: Movie Barricade [though in a more WFC-esque design], head inspired by Unicron in this picture [you know, the moustache, the goatee, the face, though he obviously doesn't have horns and his eyes don't glow green]. His alt mode is a Cybertronian Bike [inspired by the Harley Davidson Chopper] And the "Decepticon/Autobot" insiginia is on his shoulder pads. Weapons/Abilities: Machine gun, hand-cannons, Energon Bisento [similar to Optimus' energon axe in WFC] and his bare fists. Personality: Rawbones is an old-timer, experient, he always complains about how things were better on his days, and how this new generation is a disgrace to the whole Transformers race. Rawbones is a natural warrior, always spoiling for a big fight, he always takes the bigger enemy to show him how age has only made him better. He is often noted for his sense of humor [as his age left him a bit...crazy], often tauting his enemies with witty remarks and casually joking [even on serious situations]. He is suicidal and a bit crazy on occasions, always laughing in the middle of a big war [and smilining whenever battle is mentioned]. But even considering such attributes, he still is a natural leader, filled with courage and outside the box thinking, smart and unpredictable on his ways. History: Rawbones has fought against Decepticons since the word "war" was invented [he actually says that HE invented the word "War"], he used to be a normal and daring Wrecker who accomplished many missions [which he often talks about in a nostalgic tone], but as his combat abilities increased, his sanity decreased and he was eventually abandoned on Astearia alongside his fellow Autobots. But now peace has been met, and he is forced he to put his differences with the Decepticons aside in hope to form a new society with his former enemies [The Forgotten Cybertronians], war, but to do so, he will have to put his old rivalry with the Decepticons on the past and embrace a future without a war [an idea that he is having a hard time trying to embrace it] Made By: Overlord Balder. Name: Mach Dart Affiliations: Autobot Elite Guard, Sentrabots Occupation: Decepticon Spy Hunter, Elite Guard Commander, Sentrabot Commander, Torso/head of Safehaven Colors: Blue, white, yellow, black Body: WFC Starscream body with Armada Starscream's wings. Size/Power: Medium/Powerful Weapons/Abilities: Wing sword, Training knife, EMP pulsators on arms, leg and arm mounted blades. Very skilled with the knife and blades. Has EMP pulsators that he invented for stunning enemies on the fly. History: Mach Dart is a seeker, which is rare amongst the Autobots, but even rarer amongst the Elite Guard ranks. He was at first a Decepticon Spy hunter until he got transferred to the (TBD) team and, after several successful missions, became the leader of the Elite Guard, something that ws unheard of for a Seeker. Due to his reputation, he was chosen for the Safehaven project, which was basically becoming a combiner. He tends to to be a loner, and can be unpredictable, yet he more often than not makes sound decisions. Personality: Can be a loner, unpredictable in certain situations concerning the Decepticons. Reserved around others except for his own team. Makes decisions after considering every angle involved with them. Name: Bombkill. Affiliation: Autobot Elite guard. Occupation: Bomb especialist/frontline soldier/Right leg of Safehaven. Colors: Entirely red. Body: Bulkhead (Prime)-esque body [of course, the size being adapted to the "normal" class, but still bulky as Bulkhead] with a similar face to Jetfire from Revenge of The Fallen [similar beard and eyes, though his eyes are yellow]. His alt mode is a Cybertronian car similar to a Hummer. The Autobot/Decepticon insiginia stays on his chest. Size/Power: Small/Normal Weapons: Energon Hatchets [that comes from his wrists and replaces his hands], an grenade launcher and a Neutron Assault Rifle History: Bombkill used to work as a Wrecker [a damn good one] for the Autobots, while his younger brother [Hunter] acquired himself a rank in the Autobot Elite Guard. However, Hunter ended up killed admist the battles for the Autobot Elite Guard; Vengeful and hearbroken Bombkill decided to join the Autobot Elite Guard to replae his brother and avenge him once and for all, but nobody is saying that this is going to be easy... Personality: Bombkill is experient on his job [A.K.A Blowing things up], he often talks in a "techinical" manner ["Look that's an AXY1837AMENA8 Bomb!"], ofen needing translation, much to the annoyance of his friends. He loves to blow things up. some would say he is obsessed with it, but for he, the more flashy the explosion is, the better. Bombkill is the "shoot first, ask later" type of guy [or better, the "shot first while making witty taunts to his enemey and ask later" type of guy], always prefering to explode a door instead of opening it, though he will often warn people before exploding something, he loves the heat of the battle, sometimes laughing in joy as he fights [while screaming taunts, of course], being a screaming warrior. But even with his screaming ways, he always listens to his leader [mainly because he's not that good with strategies] and attacks after his orders. He is almost always in a good and helpful mood, the only exception being when something involving his brother [his death, mainly] happens, then he'll get scaringly serious. Made By: Overlord Balder.

When picking the slot, don’t pick it because it seems the most important, but pick it because you think that’s where you can make the best character. The better/cooler the character, the more likely I’ll write him more in the story. One last quick note: All Fan-Characters will get a decent amount of the time in the story. Some might get more time then others, but all will get a good amount. Description of Terms and Examples: Small: Around 15 to 19 feet tall. Medium: Around 18 to 23 feet tall.

Second of all, please talk about what you think the name of the combiner should be, and what their team name should be, whether you’re making a character or not. I have some ideas, but I want to see what kind of cool characters make up the combiner other than Nitro and Strafe. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the dead combiner member, Hunter, turned into a Cybertronian Helicoptor, a bit similar to Rotorstorm but not quite (and a bit smaller of course), and was white with a lot of red and some blue. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to (hopefully!) seeing your creations! Any questions, please post here or PM me.
