    I was thinking in Just the Dreads and some nameless Drones, keep the cast a bit smaller.

    Indeed, but I think we have too much character in the Air Forces already, we need something to cross the seas alongside Shipwrecked.

    Then add those two to the cast, as Shipwrecked's pals.

    Tomorrow we move to the heroes.

    OK just let's keep track of who "owns" which characters.

    In terms of heroes I think it may be interesting to have no Prime, with Optimus having been killed of already? We could have Sideswipe, Hound, Sunstreaker, Ironhide, First Aid maybe? Obscure-ish characters but still known.

    Optimus is held captive. Which means he's out of the story for a while, but can be brought in later. Anyway it would be dishonest with the character to start with him being killed already.

    "Overlord.
    - Leader of the Autobot Prison Garrus-9 [Set on the place previously known as New York, perhaps?], where Optimus Prime is being held."


    I have a fan character and I'm unsure about him. If it was like TFA where all the original characters were given new details and were changed completely, or Bayverse where no-bot is like who they used to be, I would gladly make him Omega Supreme. If we are to keep the characters as they are officially, he would need to be a fan character whom I named Weapon. His size, outlook and abilities are similar to Omega, but his past and motives are my ideas. (Details would be revealed in the story later.)

    I would take a femmebot like Firestar or Moonracer.

    I think now Prime of Minor like rank. It would be interesting just to have no identifible leader......Prime alive but captured sounds good

    As in TFA? Sounds good.

    How about Megatron and Ultra Magnus missing in action (the two of them were fighting and now both are lost, no-one knows where)?

    People, people, let's discuss one matter at the time.

    On Megatron: I think he should stay in Cybertron, rulling the place while Shockwave rules Earth [kind of swapping around their roles].

    To be organized, I think everyone should follow my model of apresentation when wanting to introduce a new character.

    I'll exemplify while I present my ideas to the Autobot cast:

    - Optimus Prime.
    Held on Garrus-9, would be out of the story for most of the story.

    - Omega Supreme.
    Previously the Autobot titan, but after Cybertron was conquered by Megatron, he became a renegade, depressive and declining on a corner of planet Earth he has no hopes to fight anymore and just wants to rust in peace.

    Now the Prime Council, the group of Primes who have the task of leading the Rebellion:

    - Zeta Prime.
    The Silent Prime.
    A ninja-like Autobot, forever silent [due a wound caused by Shockwave], second-in-command to the current leader of the Autobot Team [who gives his orders through his physical language only].
    Loyal to the Autobot cause, he will execute his orders without thinking twice.

    - Primon.
    The elder Prime.
    His demise approaches, he trying to teach wisdom to his fellow Autobots and bring hope to their darkest hour with the time he has left.
    He's kind of like Oogway from Kung Fu Panda.

    - Guardian Prime.
    The Mad Prime.
    An insane Prime, he's old, cranky and most of all, insane.
    He is suicidal, and is not giving a damn to etiquette of being a Prime, and can'tn really get the "Autobot way".
    He also has a tendency to quote Optimus in a wrong way ["Sentience is the freedom of all right beings or whatever."].
    Pretty much "Kup Prime".

    - Nemesis Prime.
    The Fallen Prime.
    Optimus' brother, he used to be the evil Prime, but united with the protagonists after seeing how powerful and dangerous the Decepticons became.
    He's exceedingly brutal and merciless, he even has concetration camps for the Decepticons, but always with the best in mind.

    - Sentinel Prime.
    The Lawful Prime.
    Obsessed with the concept of "Law and Order", authoritative but a good person, has too much of "brains" but too small in his "Heart", always following the most logic option, seeing the world as a bunch of calculations.
    A more badass, tough-as-nails and hardcore version of "Prowl" as a Prime.

    Oh, and three plot-points I thought about:

    - The Matrix of Leadership.
    Forever lost on final days the "Ultimate War" [the conflict that led to the current situation, y'know, Shockwave commanding Earth, humanity enslaved, Cybertron on Megatron's command], it's apparently hidden somewhere on Earth.

    - The AllSpark.
    On Megatron's posession [how do you think we ended up like this?], who is using it to enslave the universe.

    I'm still thinking about it, but those are the leaders, they would be secondary chacters [mostly] anyway.

    Now, for the main team, I was thinking on...

    - Ratchet [movie-verse esque].
    One of the few Autobot survivors of the "Ultimate War", one that fought side-by-side with Optimus.
    But instead of the good ol' doc, he is gritty, merciless and absolutely brutal [although still retaining the calm voice and wise words, but now on a deppressive way].
    He is now a darker and hopeless veteran who seems to have lost any faith in humanity or Decepticons a long time ago.
    Ratchet is basically a death seeker.

    Any other suggestions?

    Hm, so the Autobots would be the more brutal ones with Zeta annd Primon trying to keep them the Autobot way? Sounds interesting and gives place to possible character developement. But this is NOT Shattered Glass, is it?
