Alt-mode: Cybertronian semi-truck.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Chaplain carries a large sword and a shield that can transform into a forearm-mounted blaster. He also has thruster packs built into his calves and back.
Bio: the stoic, firm-yet-fair leader of Hecate. He believes that the Cybertronians should end their self-imposed exile and reintroduce themselves to the galaxy at large.
Alt-mode: Terran semi-truck.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: forearm blasters that fire globs of molten metal at targets, along with a war hammer the standard Junkion traits. He owns an old Autobot shuttle that he uses on the rare occasions he leaves his world.
Bio: the the amicable, if eccentric, leader of Junkion. He supports his planets' isolationist policies, but strives to maintain friendly relations with the rest of the Commonwealth.
Alt-mode: Cybertronian motorcycle
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Autobahn can deploy electrified blades from her wrists, and her forearms can transform into subsonic repeaters. Like all Velocitronians, she possesses enhanced speed and reflexes.
Bio: the laid-back and free-spirited leader of Velocitron. Though she tries to hide it, the responsibilities of her position do weigh down on her.
Appearance: a red and white female cybertronian with a robot mode similar to RID2015 Filch
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Daybreak possesses two plasma blasters and can throw jets of white-hot flame from her palms. For melee combat, she also possesses a set of wrist blades.
Bio: the soft-spoken and humble leader of Cybertron, who values the well-being of her planet and the Commonwealth as a whole above all else. She supports keeping the Cybertronian race isolated from the organic races in the galaxy, which often puts her at odds with Chaplain.
Drill and Bit- Gigantion
Names: Drill and Bit
Subtype: Micromaster combiner team
Alt-mode: Drill forms the business end of a laser-drill vehicle, while her brother forms the back end.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: wrist-mounted laser weapons, increased strength
Bio: the taciturn leaders of Gigantion. They believe in keeping their gaze towards the future, along with the traditional Gigantion values of work ethic and unity. They disapprove of Refuse's decision to continue Junkion's isolation, as it creates a divide between the planet of junk and the rest of the colonies.
Alt-mode: the dragon in the above image.
Weapons, Abilities, and Equipment: a massive ax with an Energon blade. In beast mode, he possesses atomic breath (like Godzilla, because I'm still twelve years old, at heart). Apex also possesses formidable strength.
Bio: the proud king of the cybertronian population of Eukaris. He will not hesitate to resort to battle in defense of his people.
The Predaking- Eukaris
Name: the Predaking
It is unknown if the Predaking does not possesses a robot mode, or simply prefers not to utilize it.
Weapons, Abilities, and Equipment: the Predaking possesses immense strength and durability, along with sharp claws and teeth, quick reflexes, and explosive fire breath. His body is also covered in sharp blades and spines.
Bio: the reigning lord of the Predacon population of Eukaris, who uses his strength and savagery to keep his "subjects" in line.
Weapons, Abilities, and Equipment: Exilis can project a set of Energon armor over her body in both robot mode and sword mode. In sword mode, this armor can heat up to extreme temperatures. She also wears the Chimera Stone, the artifact of Micronus Prime, around her neck. The stone allows the bearer and their allies to share their abilities amongst themselves.
Bio: the recently-elected leader of Vergrandis, who already has a decent grasp of the responsibilities of the taxing position.
The Heralds of Unicron:
Name: Nemesis Prime
(Credit to Pinterest user Jin-Saotome.)
Weapons, equipment, and abilities: Nemesis Prime was created to be Unicron's one-bot answer to the Thirteen, and as such he is immensely powerful. He possesses the combined might of all the original Primes, as well as supernatural reflexes, resilience, and endurance. He wields the Dark Star Saber, a twisted replica of Prima's sword which possesses all the attributes of the original, in addition to the properties of the Dark Energon comprising it's blade.
The Dark Star Saber
Recently, Nemesis Prime acquired the Dead Matrix, a dark counterpart to the Matrix of Leadership. As the Matrix imbues it's host with the power of Primus, the Dead Matrix grants Nemesis mastery over the dark energies of his creator. Though the presence of the Matrix of Leadership prevents Nemesis from using them to their full extent, he can tap into a fraction of the Dead Matrix's power with enough concentration. This process wreaks havoc on his body and leaves him in great pain afterward, however.
Bio: Originally the most loyal of Unicron's heralds, Nemesis Prime has acquired a measure of autonomy and self-awareness during his time in the Void. Scorning his late master for using him for a pawn in his ultimate scheme, leading him to spending most of his life trapped in the non-space outside reality, Nemesis Prime now serves only himself, using the other three heralds to further his interests
Alt-mode: Cybertronian jet
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Ramjet exists in a state of both being and unbeing, his broken body held together by his power over the fabric of reality and the sheer force of his will. Of all the heralds, Ramjet is the most difficult to kill, as he can recover and reconstitute his form after most attacks and injuries with great speed.
Ramjet wields the Antrodemonus Sword and has two large canons on his shoulders, all three of which he uses to focus his chaotic powers into more devastating attacks. He is also accompanied by four Minicons: Thunderwing, Thunderclash, Terradive, and Gunbarrel. These Minicons don't appear to have wills of their own, existing as extensions of Ramjet's being and transforming into other blades and blasters for him to use.
From left-to-right: Terradive, Thunderwing, and Gunbarrel.
Bio: Ramjet embodies the chaos that Unicron has come to be associated with in Cybertronian lore. He is a cruel, psychotic individual who revels in destruction, slaughter, and suffering- just as his creator desired. Even the other three heralds keep their distance from him, as he has tried to kill all of them numerous times in a quest to gain Unicron's undivided favor. Ramjet despises Nemesis Prime in particular, envying him for the favoritism he always garnered from the Chaos Bringer. With the Dead Matrix in his possession, however, Nemesis is now able to exert at least a semblance of control over Ramjet with the powers it has given to him. Still, the sadistic seeker is an unpredictable and formidable adversary that all beings must be weary of.
This, but with the robot mode's colors.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Megabolt possesses a large arsenal of devastating weaponry, as well as enhanced strength and endurance. In vehicle mode, he is capable of superluminal travel.
Bio: while the other three heralds wield various flavors of what can only be described as magic, Megabolt prefers a more... "scientific" means of enacting the late Unicron's will. And by scientific, I of course mean a nigh-infinite arsenal that would make movieverse Ironhide squeal. Megabolt is a pragmatist, eschewing the lengthy monologues and theatrics of his kin for a more down-to-earth persona. He focuses on completing the task at hand, often becoming tunnel-visioned and unable to think outside the proverbial box.
Infernocus is a combiner, formed from five individual components:
From left to right: Rupture, Gorge, Skulk, Thrash, and Glug.
Alt-modes: the Infernocons transform into varying types of dragons, save for Skulk, who does not possess an alt-mode.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: The Infernocons are pyrokinetic, able to summon and manipulate fire magnified by the dark energies of Unicron. This power is increased a thousandfold when they combine into Infernocus. The Infernocons wield various melee weapons, and Infernocus carries a massive sword formed from Skulk's armaments.
Bio: Every team of villains needs its' dumb muscle, and Infernocus fills that role perfectly for the heralds of Unicron. Seemingly incapable of speech or higher thought, Nemesis Prime finds it best to simply point the brute in one direction and let him raze to his twisted sparks' content. The individual Infernocons likely contribute to the gestalt's mindless bloodlust, being savages who delight in causing wanton mayhem and destruction.
Subtype: Minicon, Point One Percenter. Specifically, he's a Loadbearer with a twist: his body is constantly malfunctioning and falling apart. Fortunately, he's pretty easy to put back together.
Appearance: TLK deluxe Sqweeks, with the color scheme of WALL-E and green eyes. His right arm is an off-white color.
Alt-mode: terran scooter.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Bootleg carries around a small, red-and-white trailer full of spare parts and medical equipment to make repairs on the fly. This trailer can combine with Bootleg, deploying a set of missile launchers. Bootleg's right arm can also transform into an amalgamation of an X-12 Scrapmaker, a plasma cannon, and a laser-guided missile launcher.
Bio: a rude, foul-mouthed, and immature Junkion with a secret spark of gold.
Alt-mode: terran pickup truck.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Wrist-mounted blasters, a big-ol' claw weapon, an endless battery of pop-culture references.
Bio: a young and excitable Junkion who yearns for more in life.
This head, but with the robot mode's colors.
Weapons, Abilities, and Equipment: Coaxial owns a combat-class transtector with a Cybertronian tank alt-mode. It resembles the Titans Return Hardhead toy, but with Coaxial's color scheme, of course.
This transtector is equipped with a blaster rifle and a quagma cannon.
When united with a transtector, Coaxial can coat his armor (and that of the transtector) in a durable, silver alloy that allows him to take less damage in combat. Unfortunately, his weapons and T-cog are inaccessible to him when this alloy is in use. When not using a transtector, Coaxial carries a rifle that fires hard light projectiles.
Bio: a corporal in the Vergrandian militia who doesn't quite grasp the concept of formality, and sometimes leaves things to the last possible minute.
Name: Liege Maximo
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Liege Maximo's signature weapons are the Liegian Darts, which contain a wide variety of poisons, acids, and other chemical weapons that the disgraced Prime uses to dispatch his targets. His body naturally replenishes his supply, as with most Cybertronian weapons.
Bio: he's pretty much a straight port of his (Aligned) cannon portrayal, personality wise. He's charismatic, deceitful, and will manipulate others to further his own interests.
Apearance: similar to Daybreak's. Her armor is mostly back, with gold as a secondary color, and her optics are a deep purple. Her body is similar in design to RID2015 Filch.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: like her sister, Nightfall's forearms can transform into plasma blasters, and she possesses a set of wrist blades. Nightfall can also bend light around herself or a target of her choosing to become nearly invisible.
Bio: witty, sociable, and perhaps a little too protective of her twin sister, Nightfall is a dependable ally in these dark times.
Appearance: TLK Cogman, but with a faded, rusted, primarily deep-red color with silver accents. He's much taller- about eighteen feet in height.
Weapons: a laser pistol and a rusted dagger.
Bio: Refuse's deadpan secretary. He's a little fed-up with the slag he has to deal with on a daily basis, but remains by Refuse's side out of loyalty to the Junkion leader. He doesn't admit this, however, and lies that the pay he receives for his work is the only reason he's held out this long.
Appearance: Cybertron Override, but with a silver-and-blue color scheme.
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: a double-barreled laser rifle and the usual Velocitronian traits of enhanced speed and reflexes.
Bio: the sarcastic, however mostly relaxed captain of the CCS Javelin. She does not take kindly to others challenging her authority, though, especially aboard her vessel. May Primus help you if you manage to truly get on her bad side...
Name: Beta Maxx
Alt-mode: the jet in this image below. It also functions as an alternative Key to Vector Sigma, and he can also transform into a blaster which fires streams of garbage data via light beams into the processors of enemies, stunning them for a short time (basically weaponized Li-Fi).
Weapons, abilities, and equipment: Beta Maxx is capable of superluminal travel and possesses the accumulated knowledge of the Cybertronian race within his datatrax.
Bio: created to aid Alpha Trion in his duty to record the history of the Cybertronian people, Beta Maxx has an insatiable thirst for knowledge and the desire to use his vast wisdom to help others.
The CCS Excalibur
Built as a smaller sister vessel to the Commonwealth flagship, the Stormbringer, the CCS Excalibur is perhaps the fastest, most advanced ship of its' kind constructed since the end of the golden age. It is equipped with a prototype BW-199.6 Transwarp drive, enabling it to travel through non-space nearly three times as fast as those equipped with the current-standard R0-TF V09 drives (and the sublight engines leave little to be desired, as well). For combat, the Excalibur boasts a truly impressive compliment of weaponry, including Foldspace warheads, two Omega Whip electro-magnetic cannons, two neuron beam emitters, and a Hydra-class warp cannon adorning the prow.
The Excalibur is also equipped with a rudimentary artificial intelligence that can run much of the ship on its' own, if needed, allowing for an astoundingly small crew to truly be required to operate it. The Excalibur is currently docked in the Metroplex shipyards on Gigantion, its' shakedown voyage halted with the arrival of the Heralds of Unicron.
