Quote: “One planet, one people.”

Profile. When the Assembly and the Ancients summoned him to receive the burden of command as the New Prime, Senterius hesitated, in fear that this responsibility could deprive him of everything that made his life meaningful. But the deep, innate sense of duty of his nature prevented him from declining.

After the metamorphosis into Sentinel Prime, he realized how wrong he was: in fact, his new form is an evolved and complete expression of everything he had been striving to achieve his entire existence. But, where Senterius used to labor in order to climb the enlightenment stairway and understand the world around him, Sentinel Prime is now in complete harmony with the planet and can perceive Cybertron in his completeness, as if it were an enormous living organism. And his perception now extends to the remaining cosmos.
All the ethical values that backed Senterius are present in Sentinel, but the new responsibility to the entire Cybertronian population and to the surrounding galaxy have materialized a potential for resoluteness and decisional capability whose existence no one (except the Source) could ever suspect of.

Surrounding himself with a team of advisors chosen for their talents (such as competence, authority, culture and intellect), Sentinel makes use of reason and diplomacy to face any problem he meets, strongly opposed to the morally ambiguous mechanoids (Ratbat, for instance) who would try to exploit Cybertron for their own advantage, hiding deceitfully behind the false semblance of democracy. Hostile to corruption, patronage systems and censorship, he supports scientific research and expansion of philosophical disciplines. His culture of peace is not merely passive: against bossiness and aggression, Sentinel accepts and wins the fight without wavering, as the most aggressive alien species, hungry for Cybertronian technology, have learned. Sentinel rarely shows this aspect of his personality, and only in most desperate predicaments when diplomacy is mot an option, his politics, civilized debates
And mutual understanding come always first, in hope to be an example to whomever interacts with his species.

His syntony with the planet and the Source earned him the Balance Staff, one of the ancient artifacts guarded by the Ancients. He's well aware that this communion is far from being perfect, and a part of him senses that Cybertron's Mass Intellect chose him to fight a crawling evil that refuses to die and rises periodically its awful head. With some concern, he waits for that day, when his role as a balance to planetary forces will be stretched to its limits, exacting the final price from him.

Abilities. Sentinel Prime transforms into a road train that can withstand most e conventional Energy weapons.   In this form, with sufficient momentum Sentinel Prime can smash through two meters thick mexetrocement walls. Sentinel rarely uses his vehicle mode for offense, preferring to deploy instead the medical instruments built into his trailer.
Sentinel Prime maintains all Sentiterius' prodigious specifications, adding an inquantifiable physical strength, light laser weaponry, and the Balance Staff, an artifact with healing capabilities, directly connected to the Source.

Weaknesses. Sometimes, Sentinel Prime cannot comprehend the abysses of degradation to which the minds of certain mechanoids can sink. He's then unprepared to certain acts of betrayal born from most despicable behaviors. Of course, if he wanted, he could learn to reason with the same baseness of his opponents: but then, he wouldn't be Sentinel Prime.</i>
