[Locked to DATS + Autobots]
As many of you probably know, my name is Optimus Prime. It almost feels like I have to reintroduce myselves to you all, in a way, because even if I wasn't gone from HERE long... I spent several of your Earth months away from this world. I saw many things... not many of them GOOD things... but I finally, really, first hand saw what kind of devestation a true war can bring. Even fighting off things like the Dark Area's attempted invasion so long ago dind't really prepare me for taht sort of thing.
And that's why I see when I come back here, that... we didn't really do enough. This world has been on the verge of that kind of violence for a long time, and I'd like to do what I can to prevent it, or at least fight against it. As such, I am submitting a request for Ratchet, Bulkhead, and myself to join DATS. I'm willing to work wherever I'm needed, but I do think I could currently do the most good in Neon City.
Provided there's nothing I'm not aware of from my time away.
That said... when we came back, Ratchet and I ran into something strange. One of our old enemies - Prometheus Black, aka "Meltdown" - was attacking Bulkhead and Sari, but... he had something ELSE with him.
At first, I thought it was just some strange Digimon, but looking into it... there's NOTHING that looks like THIS:
Additionally, it didn't break apart into data when defeated, NOR did it turn back into a Digi-Egg. It's... not like anything I've ever fought, to be honest. But I figured it'd be good if you were informed about it, and HOPING, at least, you might be able to shed a little light on it. [ooc - Jumping ahead here from THIS log a bit since Raz is having internet problems. Prime is submitting Ratchet & Bulkhead's names here with Raz's permission. I'm not mentioning the Sari revelations here yet, simply because that log ISN'T done, I can't say what happens there yet, and ... Optimus probably isn't liable to go blabbing all about it yet, anyway. XD; Whereas with the Creep Hands, we can say pretty certainly they kick its ass. ]
