— ♔ — Thirteen was unlike the other Primes. His type was warrior, a physical adept, with leadership and intellectual fortitude of kings. Where Megatronus was riddled with contradiction, Thirteen had no such troubles and was perhaps as a result far lesser in ego than any of the other late Primes. At this time of our making he was quiet and dutiful, obedient to Prime’s commands and dedicated to assisting those who required it. He was like Prime’s second, but unlike the rest he had no special object or weapon associated with him, taking up only those lesser tools crafted by Solus, and his armor, as he was instructed. This would seem odd if we did not all know that his true purpose was a mediator and visionary.
Thirteen was an inspirational speaker and a deep thinker with a calm soul. His steady, perceptive nature meant he was well liked, and he pulled his own weight. He used to comfort others in times of stress with a friendly hand on their shoulder and the words,
❝All are one.❞
There was a contented light in him that made us believe it. Even Megatronus would be calmed this way when he came in from one of his great battle rages, foaming with his puissance and resentment. Thirteen united us. Without his influence we would have fallen into disarray far sooner.
