Preypacer, Swiftleaper and the Air Corps veteran Halcyon was originally members of the
Autobot resistance on Cybertron. Then something happened that changed them forever.
During a mission they where ambushed and taken captive by the brilliant but mad scientist
Flame. He used them along with other unfortunate victims as test subjects in a series of
Preypacer, Halcyon and Swiftleaper were the only survivors, or so they thought at the
time. The trio had been turned into a kind of Transorganic mutants with traits of
Earthen beasts. Thus calling themselves Transmutants.
During the escape they destroyed Flames laboratory, but to their chagrin he got away.
In the tunnels below Flames former hideout, the perceptive scout Swiftleaper found a
small creature with the features of a dragon, the presumed result of one of the
scientist's earliest Transorganic experiments. The two formed an unusual bond
and the semi intelligent creature was named Greedygut.
Shortly after returning to the Autobot resistance, Preypacer and Halcyon were sent
to Earth along with Greedygut on a mission. Swiftleaper had been seriously injured
during a battle, and had to remain on Cybertron at the time.
They arrived after the events in the UK story "Dinobot hunt" (issues 47-50).
After a minor battle with Soundwave, Ravage and Thundercracker, the trio meet up
with the Autobots on
Earth and joined them.
Months later they got to know the Dinobots and realized they had more in common
with them then the other Autobots. The Dinobots eventually befriended the Transmutants
and the two groups formed an inofficial alliance within the Autobot faction.
Three years later a fifth Transorganic emerged from Cybertrons sub levels, joining the
Transmutants. Going by the name Underground, this former neutral had spooked any
Decepticons that dared enter the lowest sublevels, now he had to face them on the
battlefield, side by side with his new allies.
About fifty years later, two more Transmutants named Pacerpaw and Cougra appeared,
both femmes created by an unknown Transformer claiming he had been Flames assistent
and the true mastermind behind the Transorganic science.
The rest is..fanfic!
