Motto: "No one escapes retribution."
Weapon: Energy Blades

Discussing team backstories I see. Well, I've only gone through four or five over three iterations of my team (Primal Ragers/Beast Legion/Retribution).

So the team's backstory is mentioned discussed here, but you'll note the lack of details. Those show up in the bios of my namesake, Gigabite, Chillwind, Flamedance and Gorebash.

At some point I really should finish off the rest of team's bios to bring them in-line with those.

With thanks to Archanubis for helping with most of those.

Edit:

Oh, and there's this bit that I never included in the team bio but is "canon" for the team.

[From the files of Nightbeat, Autobot Investigator]

I knew Retribution were trouble.

I was asked to investigate the unit by members of the Autobot High Council, due to concerns regarding their wayward tendencies. No one believes that they would defect, but it is clear they do not hold with all of the High Council’s policies.

Leo Prime was willing to submit their official file, as shown.

Unit MX-Delta 21-A “Retribution”
*Details Classified.*

That’s it. There is no other data regarding them that I have been able to access on official servers. The unit is designated MX, which means they fall under Leo Prime’s “Maximal” programme. 21-A is unit number with the A signifying Auxilliary. Technically speaking, by this designation the unit are not a frontline combat unit. Of course, given the units tactics that makes a degree of sense. However, the lack of other data available is worrying.

And it is not just the unit entry that is missing. There is no sign of any requisition forms for equipment or a garrison assignment. The unit operates out of nowhere, it seems.

It gets worse. There is no trace of any of the unit aside from Gorebash prior to the squad’s inception. None of them exist. No one can pin point where or when Gigabite was constructed, worrying given the resources necessary to construct a Transformer of that size. There are plenty of rumours, but no hard data prior to the unit’s first operations. Leo Prime somehow acquired this squad from nowhere.

I am continuing this investigation as and when time permits given my other duties. A unit like this, even a classified unit, leaves more of a trace.

I have been working off and on for a few years on a back story. But I'm lazy. http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar ... hp?id=6149 There's some beginings maybe... Most of the team at least has a paragraph about them.

I only got around to writing one for my namesake Wrath. A few players wrote up some bios for a tourney that JP ran a couple years ago. Wish I could remember what site has them all though.

Wow I’m amazed at the level of work on the teams and their characters.
I think I probably write on a 9th grade level so I’m a little intimidated to put my characters stories down. So far I’ve only pulled bios from existing characters like Cliffjumper, or mythology, like Chrysoar. But that’s just plagiarism and leads to a team of random robots.
I wrote Kimber’s from scratch which has lead to additional ideas on how to form a cohesive team. I have had fun making cheesy quotes; I used to love how the old transformers and GIJoe mottos would mimic historic quotes! http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar ... p?id=39331

Don't worry too much Redoutlander, my team story has build up over almost 8 years playing this game, inspiration tends to arrive when you least expect it.

Although, as you are an autobot, I suggest you start with a short blurb about your team concept and just add to it whilst you are waiting for your team to come back from the CR chamber.

Ah, I wrote stuff too. Pretty much everything in first person. So it's not that descriptive. Mostly, showing my guys ramblings, but I quote like it. I've had this back story, roughly, in my head for months so it's good to finally use it. Though, since I just joined, it's not that descriptive and's a rough draft of what yet's to come. Here it is.

I thought it was more than that when the Minicons got eaten by Murderplex. Ah well. That happens to me pretty regularly. I am surprised by the people who stick with it for years straight. Like Burn and Snapcase and Psychout.
