The Tripredacus Council have been an enigma since their introduction in Season 2 of Beast Wars. What their role within the Predacon faction is remains a mystery, but the greatest cause for debate has been in regards to their origins. To that end, in a series of 4 one-shot pages that finally shed some light on this shadowy triumvirate, I have the pleasure to present:

GATHERING DARKNESS - Part 4 (of 4)

Shouldn't the Council be way younger?

What makes you say that?

Well according to Code of Hero and The Agenda, it was said that the Predacons came after the Great War and thus the Tripredacus beginning born after?

You may want to reread this little 4-page story. I'm suggesting they were members of Jhiaxus' Cybertronian Empire. Tarantulas himself says that he and the Council have origins outside of Autobot and Decepticon.

Excellent!  So the Tripedacus council think they can control Unicron - that's playing with fire for sure ;)

They do indeed. Blackmailing a god is a risky play ;p

Thanks for taking the time to read it all mate. It's greatly appreciated :D

Excellent art from the two artists and I'm so completely lost with the story but that's just me and nothing new! Except nothing good ever comes outta Unicron, and that's 110% fact! :la:

I can assume, as Razorclaw is pretty damn dead in that one panel, that it's all after the Csirac story, then something happens between, the council bots are heck of a greedy bastards and unleashes another hell upon the universe with Unicron which they aren't able to control anyway? This page is like the summary of aaaaaall of it to that point?

Well... no ;p

All four pages of the series essentially take place prior to the Csirac story. We follow the bots from living on Cybertron during the start of the civil war, to them becoming members of the Cybertronian Empire under the Liege Maximo, then being abducted by Unicron, then escaping and returning to Cybertron around the time the TransWarp story takes place.

Uh, okay. :confused: I can only assume Razorclaw is not dead in the last panel then. :confused: Why would the text otherwise say "---we ended it."? That's how I interpret the 'ending' there as it has something to do with his death. But then Razorclaw is not not dead from that point forward and he still has the same body in Csirac story. That's why I'm confuseeeeed! =P

Ok, so the Razorclaw panel and the panel after it (with the three of them looking straight at the reader) take place after Csirac. That's what I meant by "returning to Cybertron around the time the TransWarp story takes place" :)
