:Weapon(s):
Being a Cybertronian in nature Thunderstrike has many ancient weapons pertaining to his nature, be it missles, pistols or whatever else, he has it, his most notable weapon is his lightning gun. Which is similar to Megatrons Fusin gun. He cannot use this one handed. His Pretender Unit has a Pistol version that acts similar to a E11 on full Auto. Even the pistol version of this weapon cannot be used one handed.

Void-7 Type III Sesimic charges, four racks of 8 charges each. These are also his 'missles' when in F22 mode; Sesimic CHarges, all Sesimic Charges have a explosive power of 12 gigatons of TNT, Type III Sesimic charges have a stronger center in the sense that they pretty much cause a small microblack hole before starting the internal combustion to set off the massive charge. The Void-7 Type III Seismic charge has a explosive power of 18 Gigatons of TNT. The Sesimic Grenades seen with Swallowtail did not begin production until Void-7 Type XIV, Swallowtail uses Void-7 Type XXVIII, Void-7 Type III have a blast raidius of 550 meter circle. or one Cybertronian City Center {550x550 meter square and 270 meters deep}

Dreads; As a Decepticon Thunderstrike had access and command over several dozen Dreads at his disposal. Their primary function was gang type level security, and bouncer level skill. They're all afraid of Thunderstrike due to his Lightning Rod Gun, they all have their own weapons, primarliy blunt weapons, howoever some of them will go as far as outright destruction when it is required. They currently stand heavy watch at the McKinley Samson Arena Factory property. Their alt modes {aside from Dukeduk who also uses a second alt mode of a Bell 439 helicopter} are all black 4-door slantback Humvees. They do not have Pretender Units, they use Hardlight projection systems instead. Their names are listed in Comrades listing.

Past History
____________________

Thunderstrike was but 340,000 years of age when he first laid his red optics on the young Sparklings of Swallowtail and Downshift, the two girls at the time young were both sweet and got along with almost everyone until their teen years. Seeing Swallowtail sparked something in the old former Decepticons spark and since that time he'd taken a protective older brother looking out for his little sister liking ot to the young Sparkling.

It was not until after Downshift had left her sister to join the Decepticons that drew him back to Swallowtail, the young Sparkling, only 45 Cybertronian years of age, was ready ot end it all, if it had not been for his timely message of warning of a Decepticon attack, she would have perished had Ironhide and Ratchet not been there in time. Since then Ratchet and Ironhide were her older brothers and protectors. Now ten years later, and she needed help again. and so, he started up the Space Bridge Pillars once more to send his messages.

It is now 300,000 years later and once more he feels in his Spark that His knowledge will be required.

OOC Notes

The rumble of a diesel engine was heard as several trucks rumbled along a off road track course nearby, one of them, a dirty black two door humvee rumbled through a bog of mud, the older man within the truck moved the wheel expertly. Pulling through the bog of mud with seeming ease. And then procceeded to pull two more trucks out of said muck. Thunderstrike, known to the other drivers as Thundarious Stryker, Was a kindly looking man with bright red eyes. But there was something about the man that set him off from those of his fellows. The truck he drove was only one thing that set him apart. Under that seemingly exterior of a Humvee, was the heart and spark of a Child of Primus. Charged with a difficult task. But a task he was so far the only one able to properly complete. So far.

At the next stop zone Thundarious stepped out of his cab and watched the rest of the trucks file through the box in good shape. One truck pulled through by a fellow as the Seeker watched carefully, making sure the m en did it as instructed as to not damage their own trucks. The day was good.

It was just the basic offroading group, and yet one of the drivers picked up two othersn ear to the area, the first he was unable to see, the second he heard the air movement and looked upwards curiously, seeing naught but a single bird high above. The Humvee driver turned his gaze back to the other drivers, two Dosge Rams were pulled from the muck track, and two Jeeps easily plowed their way through, the only other Hummer was a H3 SUT, the driver however ended uo getting pulled out of the much like the two Dosge Rams. Thunderstrike smirked. His black two door hardtop frame sat nearby, its engine idling. He went back towards it to turn it off.

The offroad outing was finished as the road was just on the otherwide of the field. The man then turned and spoke with the other drivers, two of them had a map out on the hood of one of the dirty white jeeps.Of the hight drivers, three of them made it through the muck track easily. the rest needed to be towed. After much deliberation, The other drivers agreed to split up and head back to town to get some food, and their trucks washed before their wives got home. Leaving Thunderstrike alone with his own truck, parked on a ridge overlooking the river, and the nearby muck track the other drivers and he had gone through. A good day indeed. Thunderstrike then turned and headed into the woods, his sensors locating someone a few paces away.

Thunderstrike felt himself get scanned by something above, Slag! Fell for it again! The Ancient Seeker thought, he analysed the scan result that he received on his vision sensors. the Unit halted for but a moment and turned his gaze towards the approaching person to the bluff. A fast scan of his own was soon completed and the Unit smiled thinly before turning and nearly colliding with the other person, the same person within the woods he had set off simply to meet. So far, two weeks outside of town, and not much had happened, though what had startled him was the arrival of a strangely familar signal. The person Thunderstrike came into contact with turned and scampered off without a wood. Maybe he imagined it. No, not possible. Cybertronians were not able to truly mimic that of the humans or other races they came across. He turned towards his truck and also t othe other that was advancing towards it. "Is there something I can help you with ?" the supposed artefical asked. His lumicent red eyes unblinking as they watched Lukas carefully..

Thunderstrike didn't flinch as he evenly stared back with unblinking lumicent red eyes, the Ancient Seeker Had seen many things in his life time, but nothing like this planet. The older appearing man seemed indifferent to the sudden arrival of many birds. Half tempted to fire upon them with his lightning pistol in his left wrist. But he stayed his hand, instead looking from the birds to the man nearby, who had halted, at least he apepared to be a man. His helmet was off. Turning his gaze back to the birds, Thunderstrike did a quick sensor scan of them. trying to make sense of what they were. Nothing other then crows. Strange. a flock of them.

OOC Notes

Thunderstrike stood calmly as he watchedm, and listened to the birds, it was not often that the former Decepticon was scared of anything, annoyed of some things, like Megatron, and the Fallen, both of them big egolistical jerks. Though sometimes he could see the point that Starscream tried to make when he led for a short time. But even then Thunderstrike never really did listen to the younger 'Con. The Man went to the mudcovered black two door hummer. He had seen stranger, but not this strange, He turned his gaze back to the largest of the birds. Something poked at him that this bird was the leader of this motely group. Well, He'd fly off, but then again. He didn't want the world to know he was there.... yet. He said nothing, waiting in silence.

Thunderstrike spoke up then seeing the birds fly off, leaving a man in their wake, "Some people know how to put on a flashy appearance." He said somewhat stoicly. He said placing a hand on the door of his truck and opening it without a sound. Well oiled hinges worked wonders. He then spoke to the young appearing fellow, "Something I can help you with ?" There was nothing on the guy marking him anything he was to fear. It was hard to get him to fear anything. though he was slightly unnerved, he had hidden the Matrix about an hour, straight down, from this place.

Thunderstrike Smiled thinly seeing t he man shake his head and leave, allowing the man to get into his truck, with a rumble the Hummer roared to life and the man left the area, spraing mud and dirt in all directions as he hit the gas to leave the area as quickly as he was able.

From outside the bar the throaty rumble of a diesel engine was heard as a black pickup truck rumbled past the front door of the bar as it closed behind Randin. A moment later and the engine died, a older appearing man stepped out of the Hummer H1 and headed into Gambits. 'Thundarious Stryker' was dressed in his preffered testing clothing, beaten brown pants with oilstains, a grease stained white shirt, and a pair of black sunglasses. The red eyed old apeparing man looked in good health and appeared to be no pushover. {'So this is the place that Wheelie says has the best grease in t he City, that claim better live up to it'} the man thought as he entered the bar and went towoards the counter. His sensors picking up several people, one of them labeled as {"Kaye, Randin, D. ; Lawman, Friendly"} as he noticed the trenchcoated man nearby. {'Intersting place...'} Thunderstrike's Unit thought to himself as he stepped to the counter and orodered a glass of 10w45 motor oil with a dash of deep fryer grease. though he called it aloud in english "Black coffee with a dash of honey"

Thunderstrike turned his gaze slightly to the one that spoke towards him, "I'll try anything once." Thundarious replied with a slight smile. He nodded, "That's mine." He said, about to call it his 'better half' when it was actually himself. He'd just come from a test flight with some 'student drivers' for the new SA-2 series Samson aircraft that Underlund was making, they had comissioned him to oversee the factory since it was on his personal property to begin with. "Been driving a Hummer for the better part of thirty years." He said as his 'coffee' arrived. "Why you want one ?" He asked, his voice was deep, like a bass sounding tone to it. With a hint of slightly on edge undertone to it as well. Policemen asking questions about his 'ride' "Think I know where I can get you one right off the assembly line" He said as an afterthought, he fpound himself liking this cop. Seemed a good man, a question asker. But also a hardnosed cop. Though something told Thunderstrike to tread carefully. And try not ot give the poor man a heart attack if he asked for a test ride in his truck

The rumble of a diesel engine was heard outside as a black four door slantback Humvee rumbled past the front of the bar, a screeching halt was heart followed almost right away by swearing as two men stepped out, one of them a taller football player like fellow with dreadlocks in his black hair, the other, an older mostly balding man with gray hair in places, both men had lumicent red eyes and yet both seemed in a good mood. "Duke, you drive like an old woman", Thunderstrike had left his frame, in his flier altmode, at the 'house' and rode with Dukeduk, his head of security

"Oh stuff it, Srtyke, I'm not the one that skywrites." Came the retort, at least both had humor. Both men entered Gambits then, the older appearing man was dressed in stained black pants, and a grease stained white shirt, the other man had a brown tanktop on, cybertronian tattoos on his shoulders and upper arms. "You sure that copper's around ?" Dukeduk, the dreadlocked man, asked his fellow

"He better be, or this will be a short stay at this dump." Thunderstrike replied before noticing first and formost the car outside, An energon reading was noted, there must be another of them there, like Swallowtail. "Have any of your men located Downshift ?"

"No" Dukeduk replied as the two found a table and sat, "We did however find Hellfire, we kept our distance though. He's got two Big Boys with him." Well, that wasn't good. Thunderstrike thought, he looked around the bar and noticed one other man there at the moment. Once again his vision scrolled a Energon notice once again.

Thunderstrike noticed as did his fellow, one of the few things he noticed first and formost was that the only other person in the bar, that was tangible at least, aside from himself and Dukeduk, was another Cybertronian of some sort. With a barely decernible shake of his head, Thunderstrike kept Dukeduk in his seat, the hardlight hologram of the dreadlocked man rolled his eyes as he watched BlackStreak nearby. Well this was interesting, a Cybertronian who smoked, strange indeed. "Have you seen him before ?" The older man asked his fellow

Dukeduk took a hard look, seemingly scanning Blackstreak, and shook his head before nodding it, "Briefly, Derthin spotted his car for a breif few seconds when that transmission was sent over the radio signals a few months ago."

"You did not think to halt him when he got too close to the landing sites ?" Thunderstrike pressed

"He was far enough away ot not be a bother. I was more worried about the Predicons at the time." Dukeduk admitted. More focused on natural Cybertronian predators then anything else. scary indeed.

Thunderstrike was quiet for a moment then before speaking, "Have the enforcers patrol the Samson Arena in thirds, 12 hour shifts. Any tresspassers I want detained and sent to my office. No injuring anyone" Dukeduk nodded, the order was sent off as The two men went back to silently watching BlackStreak, Thunderstrike, an older appearing man, clearly curious to the others presence.

Thunderstrike held up a glass of honey colored fluid, "The coffee" He said, though he never actually drank the stuff, it was actually 10w45 motor oil, the dreadlocked man had nothing ordered for him, he just watched Blackstreak carefully. "Well we were not exactly expecting company of another of home." He said calmly, the older appearing man was in great shape, he looked to be in his late sixties to early seventies. "Never the less is it good to see one from home aside from those that hopefully got my message." He said, meaning a certain Mustang "Tell ,me, is that war still going on ?" Thunderstrike asked, he'd been traveling so much with the Dreads under his command that he'd been away from Cybertron for many many years.

The pair traded looks before the older appearing man shook his head, "Nither nor are we mercs, Name's Thunderstrike, This Duke, my general. I'm a Seeker, though what I'm seeking is more of a matter of proper protection for a certain Mustang known to you." He said, Dukeduk said nothing, keeping watch, calmly at that. He could be classed as a merc. But the mention of a certain birdy had him curious. However Thunderstrike answered, "You know that Sweet Sparkling too ?" Thunderstrike asked out of the blue. He had also helped Swallowtail on occasion. The spacepillars were very useful when they were needed.

After a minute of quiet he then asked, "Who's winning ?" He meant in the war, if the Cybertronians had come to Terra, then things must be getting too hot to handle at Cybertron. And he only had a control pillar and four spacepillars for himself to use. And also three dozen Dreads

Thunderstrike wanted to snicker, but it was a bit of a job not to do just that. Keeping the 'Cons in check. well, the war was still going strong. It had been about fourty years or so since he last sent anything to Swallowtail. He nodded, That was the Mustang alright. "I mentioned before that I am a seeker, formerly a Decepticon, I defected to nuetrality to keep an eye on Duke and his fellows here when Pirma kicked the slagheap." He said, He sought to keep Swallowtail and the other younger 'bots safe. No matter the cost

"Since then we've bene traversing the stars, recently arrived here and started up a small company south of the city. Been looking for Swallowtail's sisters to knock some sense into her spark." He shook his head, Downshift and Swallowtail, when he had first met them, were good young sparkling twins. But Downshift had been approached by Starscream to join the 'Cons, and it was that event that drew Thunderstrike into protecting Swallowtail at the time, having sent a messege to Ironhide and Ratchet at the time as well to thwart a Decepticon slaughter.

He sighed then taking a sip of his drink, "So... the 'Cons finally tried another planet, funny I should arrive here too." He muttered. Either way, the war was basically on his doorsteps, There was no way to really avoid it now. "A few hours ago there was some big stuff going on north of town, even east town has some big stuff happening, massive sinkhole in Eastown, a few dozen flares going up north of town as if someone were having a major party or the like happening... " He shook his head, "'Cons must be bored." He surmised

Thunderstrike snickered then, "Ear chewed out ? doubt it, Swallowtail is more focused on keeping her human safe apparently." He said He thought Swallowtail might have something to do with that sinkhole, nearly a Terran mile in a circle. a massive thing. The only weapon that could cause that was a sesimic charge.... Or Impact fooling around with the things.... A normal Sesimic Charge didn't give that kind of bang. At least his didn't.

He shook his head at the artefact question, "Nope, not seeking anything to turn the planet inside out. Yet." He said, "Been mostly looking for our little Mustang's sister Downshift, heard she joined ranks with the 'Cons several years ago, one of the first things she tried was to kill her own sister when she refused to join up. Since then I've been looking for that elusive Sparkling to teach her some manners. Duke and his fellows are here only because they follow orders very well" That and the three dozen Dreads with him were scared slagless of him due to his brutal yet effcient tempermental ways of killing those that disobeyed his orders

Thunderstrike watched as Blackstreak turned stood, and said his farewell, Nodding in return the two men watched the other leave the bar, nither of them speaking until the man left, However it was Dukeduk that spoke up first, "So that is who the FPV belonged..." Thunderstrike was nodding, "You think that Sparkling is on this planet somewhere ?" Dukeduk asked, he remembered that battle, he had ordered his fellow Dreads to keep their distance and let the normal 'Cons, the hunters, do the fighting. He was scared of Ratchet, what that guy coiuld do with a medical appendage scared the salg clean out of him.

"I want two of the Dreads to search the city, block by block, mark in red where they have searched on the wireframe map system, if any sites of where Downshifts signature appears, mark it in brilliant white with a green circle. Last I knew Downshift had taken on the appearance of some type of city officals car. But which one I ido not know." The two men then stood up and made their way outside to leave, The pair went to the o nly Humvee in the parking lot and got in. Minutesl ater they left the bar area.

The property was massive, 2,300 acres, and in the northern portion of them assive space was the assembly plant, and also a massive runway, among toher things. Dozens of black Humvees patroled the property border, two were always on station at the main gate, the only true entry way to the former airport, now made into the home of a former General of some sort, and also the home of a new line of Underlundian helicopter craft.

The two Dreads at the gate weren't expecting visitors that day, nor were they expecting tresspassers. The orders they recived were to bring any tresspassers they found to Thunderstrike himself, unharmed. And if any where to come by the maingate, direct them to the main office of the property. two massive structors, hangers most likely, were also seen. The two Dreads, ChinChin, and Nith used their hardlight holograms to make it appear as if there were humans at the guardgate. Those that worked at the assembly plant passed their ID codec through a scanner, and if it failed inspection, they were sent away. Now if a guest were to arrive, they'd be given a pass good for a few hours. Which to a Dread, was normally three human minutes. though sometimes if the guy had good reason to arrive, they'd give leeway, or an escort.

Chinchin easily scanned the ID card as it was shown to him, TIB, he neverh eard o f them before. Without a word though over a secure channel to his fellow, the gate was opened, it slid in two directions and also down into the ground, level with the pavement surface, the thermacrete brand new. six meter tall fence of some strange blueish metal. "Step off the single tread transport please" said a gruff voice, it was Chinchin who spoke, He didn't like motorcyles, they could go where he couldn't... unless he blew up stuff in his path. "An escort will be provided for you."

Within one of the two massive hangarlike structures a man was at a security station, No words were spoken as another man approached and saw who was trying ot gain entry, A smirk appeared on the man's face, He nodded, An unsaid order was given, Chinchin was to drive the fellow to the main office, Nith was to guard the gate, Dukeduk would join Nith in Chinchin's place.

Thunderstrike was wondering what had kept the local government from looking into his operation. So far, it had taken them two weeks since he started, the Assembly plant had been in full production of the new SA-2 series for the Empire, and two fully platoons of the heilcopter gunships had been shipped already. It was merely a matter of time before the TIB got wind of them, doubtless they wondered what went on there, all that security for one thing. Heck two of those same slantback Humvees were driving everywhere in the City already, And those two rose many concerns in the city, mostly because they were driverless

For a factory of helicopter,s it was strangely very quiet where the people where

ChinChin, for the most part said very little to almost nothing, "General Stryker will speak with you." Was all he said, the purr of the turbo diesel engine of the Humvee was soon the only sound as ChinChin pulled onto a lane imprinted into the thermacrete runway. White and bronze lines in the surface marked where the roadway was. Moments passed in quiet as ChinChin pulled up towards a opening Hangar door. The massive door opened to ten feet wide, then to twelve, then fiveteen before it halted and started to close as ChinChin pulled the Humvee cleanly into the now brightly lit hangar. Dozens of brand new twin ductvent Helicopters were on one side. One of them being checked over by clearly workers from Wing City, or elsewhere. No words were spoken between the taller darkhaired football player like men however as ChinChin pulled into a parking space imprinted on the thermacrete floor. As he pulled in, a similar Hummer backed out of the ajcent space, only the one that pulled out was a larger model, longer, a station wagon type.

... Chinchin stepped out of his truck, motioning for Austin to follow him towards a railless stairway nearby to the upper floors. Computer parts were everywhere on the second level. along with a few small offices, and lastly another stairway, this one had one rail however, and led to the third level. A similar looking man to ChinChin stood there, Derthin though had a handlebar mustache though, it went with his rig, so to speak.

No words were spoken between the two men, ChinChin turned to his charge, "Follow Him, he will take you to General Stryker's office." Apparently ChinChin was only allowed to get so close to the guy, in truth he was scared slagless of the much larger Seeker. that ran the place. Derthin smirked slightly, he nodded then and said somewhat stiffly, "Follow me." And turned on his heel heading for a room down the seemingly one walled hallway that lead to the other offices and apparently rooms in the massive Hangar.

The doors were all removed from t heir hinges, allowing the TIB agent to see within each as he passed, one had a screen showing a street intersection, the roads l abeled were Mainstreet and third Avenue, basically downtown Wing City, and right on one of those corners were the Wing City Police Department. A targeting retacngle was also seen briefly as it scanned every car and truck in the police lot before moving on. Finally Derthin opened a door and stepped inside and to the side, "General Stryker sir, our guest, Mr Austin Marshal, TIB." Thunderstrike said nothing, as he was looking towards a screen on his back wall, he did however nod and motion Derthin that he could leave and wait downstairs. The screen showed a map of Wing City, every street was there. and those seemingly searched or otherwise marked in transparent red.

Thunderstrike turned and shook Austin's hand "Likewise" He said in a calm, yet fatherly tone. His brilliant bright red eyes had a jovial look to them, as if full of energy ready to be unleashed. "Yes, Brand new lineup of a new helicopter series, curtesy of a benefactory to help get things started right." He motione to a few pieces of furniture nearby, two sofas, some easy chairs, some footrests. It was basically the Oval Office so to speak. "Do sit down. Surely you have many questions" he said as himself took a seat in one of the sofas. "I was starting to wonder when someone from Terra's small government was going to show up."

He had taken the pre-emptive on patrols to keep unwanted eyes out of his operations, mostly because sometimes the Dreads liked ot relax and be themselves in their natural protoforms. and unwanted eyes could spot them easy, so he had ot keep that from happening. The fact the property was twenty miles from Fort Veritas made it more of the utmost to keep unwanted eyes from going near the inner workings of the McKinley Samson Arena.

In truth he was told to be on guard for several prying eyes, most notably the Romans, They were doubtless searching for information on Swallowtail, the Mustang was a good sparkling, a good soldier, sweet as well. So it would take some doing to find her sister, he also wantedto speak to Headgame, an old friend of his. He just hoped he was around. And m aybe get some help in finding Downshift. Maybe...

Once Austin had taken his seat, Thunderstrike, in his guise of General Thundarious Stryker, spoke anew, "So, what can I do for the TIB ?" He asked, a faint smile on his face. clearly inviting and friendly. Thunderstrike was an older man, around seventy, balding, and had the look of one who could actually be a car mechanic and not a former general.

Thunderstrike had to smile, "You answered your first question on your own," he said with a slight smirk. "A private company, never asked him who he worked for. I was approached by the man, said that he represented a much larger company and were interested in my property here, Got full commission for the use of my property and to run this place as I liked, no questions asked, he said his people would take care of the paperwork." Thunderstrike was never one for something like that, he didn't get the point of signing six dozen pieces of paper for a house of all things.

Small government, ha, they hadn't even tried to detain or stop Dask or his brother Dusk when they were on patrol in Wing City looking for a certain Decepticon female. "Most governments do. and I understand the need for documentations." He did not want to get into a government held sanctions on his operation. If that happened he'd need to reveal who he really was. And he wanted ot avoid that at all costs. "Considering that your government as you put it, wants documentation on everything from having a baby to buying a house to drawing a painting, Makes me think that it was toobusy to contact them when I was commisioned to begin production two weeks ago." He said.

Something illegal, well, there was a n ew bit of information towards him ot consider, having so much security did turn unwanted eyes towards him after all, in the case of the law. Doubtless some people thought this operation a drug traffic point. But it wasn't. "If you mean illegal in the sense of a drug gang you can look elsewhere. My men do not deal in such matters, it is below us." However Dask and Dusk where searching road by road for Downshift.

Thunderstrike steepled his fingers in quiet thought for a moment, "Tell me truthfully Agent Marshal, what does your government truly want on this world ? Why are they so interested in keeping a record that no one will look at ?" He looked towards the screen as strange writing scrolled across the left side of it, two smaller screens appeared on the larger screen, scanning of police cars apparently. Every offical looking car the twins scanned. and so far none of them returned an Energon reading of positive.

He put up a hand, in a stop motion apparently "That wont be needed I assure you." He said, the paperwork, as he had said before, had already been done, and only needed to transfer through the UE to the TNG offices. But with the recent backwash of so much going on, along with the sudden sinkhole in eastown, and the fireworks show north of the city. TNG was quite busy.

Though he had asked a rather important question, what did the mans government he worked for truly seek ? Why did they seek it ? They wanted to exert control over everything, and if they were unable to do that, have a stake in it. But he never got involoved in politics, but he knew where to go, and what people to push. and he was efficient at it. But what did this government truly want ? Why were they so interested in a business already contracted to another much larger powerhouse ?

Was this man right in placing his trust in a government that was wanting to extend its very young arms in every direction ?

Thunderstrike had to chuckle, breeding ground indeed, as long as nobody dug up the Matrix of Leadership he had buried in the woods to the extreme south. "Something tells me otherwise, son." He replied calmly, and more concerned for a friend then someone trying to hold out against a government agent. But it didn't matter. "First and formost a new government, though small and starting to grow like this one, is already having troubles." He he lifted a remote off a coffee table and clicked it on, a screen winked on, showing various news reports, "It appears your own leader herself is also in ... hot water." He mused seeing several news reports of the leadership caste getting arrested. "Every government wants to do the same, they want to help their people, they want to rebuild.... But once in power, things change, things fail." He mused thoughtfully.

He had seen the same on Cybertron when the various factions were first formed, and then reformed, joined with others, until the Civil War started and Prima kicked the bucket. He left the Decepticons when he started to see what they were truly doing to their own world, wrecking it. It was why he left, and took his Dreads with him. traveled the stars, went back briefly and met a certain Sparkling and her sister. And now came here because of that same Sparkling pair,

Now if only he could find Downshift....
