How many colonies are there in the IDW series? And if they're all connected to the Thirteen Tribes, then does each colony worship one specific Prime like the Transformers on Caminus do?
We’ve been told there were Thirteen colony Titans, one for each of the Primes/Tribes, but we haven’t seen them all yet, nor do we know which Prime matches up to all of the colonies we’ve seen. What we have seen includes:
Caminus, Titan of Solus Prime, who gave his name to the planet he settled.
Chela, Titan of Onyx Prime, who settled the planet Eukaris
Prion, Titan of Micronus Prime, who settled an unknown planet
Vigilem, Titan of Liege Maximo, who settled no planet
Navitas, who settled the planet Velocitron; Prime unknown
Carcer, Prime and planet unknown
Tempo, Prime and planet unknown
An unnamed Titan who settled the planet Devisun, Prime unknown
And presently, many ‘bots think that Metrotitan is the thirteenth Titan, Earth is the thirteenth colony, and Optimus Prime is the reincarnation of the thirteenth Prime.
Caminus is really the only planet we’ve seen a close look at the religion of, but all the colonies that have joined the Council of Worlds seem to deify the original Primes - ‘bots from all over are falling in line behind Optimus after the idea that he is a True Prime came to light. It’s logical to think that each one might hold their own personal Prime higher than the others, but Caminus is the only one we’ve really seen doing it. The Velocitronians don’t seem a very religious bunch, and the Devisiens’ Titan has been dead a long time so they don’t likely have much of a connection to their spiritual origins.
