Cybertron, The great war.
In a time of escalating war, things are not looking good for the Autobots. The Deepticons seem to always be one step ahead, and to add to their troubles their leader, Optimus Prime seems to be issuing questionable orders.. Everyone is en-trenched in warfare, but no one is listening, except Field Medic Laytrx7, originally one of 10 search and rescue bots, begins questioning his commanders orders, he suspects that there is someone leaking information...
Convinced something extremely questionable is occuring, he returns to the Autobot Moonbase, where he and his Autobot comrade Hoist who fix up the daily casualties from the front line; and tells him that he suspects that something is very wrong with Optimus Prime... Hoist can't or won't believe it but when he is sent to head a dangerous mission along with Laytrx, they carry out the orders Prime gave. The mission is a fails. Once again the Decepticons are one step ahead, only when a rogue Vehicon named HeavyAssault saves the pair's neck, Laytrx7 is convinced the Optimus Prime they've been taking orders from is not the same Optimus Prime himself. Returning to HQ, with HeavyAssault -much to the horror of many Autobots, the field medic questions Prime's orders and confronts the leader but everything is refuted. Taken away to the Autobot holding cells and relieved of their weapons and clamped with inhibitors to stop their abilities. In the mists of war however, you need all the allies you can get, and at the penultimate hour, unexpected help arrived. Freed from they're cells, from a small few that believe them, they are busted free from their prisons and escape Autobot HQ.
Alone and on the run the Autobot warriors become fugitives, outlaws hat refuse to obey Optimus Prime's orders, slowly recruiting others that feel the same way, they begin to take the law into their own hands against the Decepticons, no matter who stands in their way.
Eons pass, and after Optimus Prime dies, his successor Rodimus Prime, formerly the Autobot Hot Rod struggles with the great burden of following in Prime's shadow. With the Renegades mass recruiting into a small army, they continue to take matters of the war into their own hands, no longer held back by Autobot protocols and rules. Sketchy reports coming in of Autobots trying to stop them, with news comes of them attacking their own kind. Whether rumour or truth, no-one is sure, but it only pushes Rodimus Prime into taking a bold action and issuing a sum on each of these "Renegade Autobots' head. Over-time they become scape-goats for the failures in the Autobot chain of command, military, war, anything where oil will stick, they are easily blamed, whether they are guilty or not. Fighting to clear they're name, as well as restore order to Cybertron, the Renedages are fighting, fighting for they're lives.
In time they clear they're name, and even ally with the Autobots even though they still try to take some credit. They become heroes of Cybertron, but peace will never last, and frail alliances with the Autobots hold thin ice. War continues, and although the Renegades clear their name; only small battles are won in the greater on-going war with the Renegades doing all they can in their own unique way. Time passes, and as the ocasional quiet patches come and go, so too do the Renegades. Noone knows why for sure, some leave the planet, some die, some just dissappear becoming only ghosts of history, descending down into myth, and legend.
It has been over one hundreds vorns since any conflict was has been fought on Cybertron. Names such as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Rodimus Prime and Ultra Magnus are nothing but the heroes and villains of the past. The Beast Wars themselves are also a period, now only spoken about in the lessons of Cybertron's history. It's a time of peace, prosperity and change. For many years, the Autobot were the caretakers of their planet, their leaders watch over Cybertron and government officials took care of their states, with no Matrix bearer. No one had been worthy enough to answer the call and become the new Prime. Until now.
"In times of war,
you can only trust yourself.."
