The Primes from Transformers series

The Thirteen Original Transformers (the Thirteen Primes, the Dynasty of Primes, or simply the Thirteen) are the first thirteen created by Primus, the creator of the Transformers.

Vector Prime

Vector Prime is Primus's appointed guardian of time and space. Though recorded history pegs him as 25 million years old, he has identified himself as 9 billion years old, making the clockwork-covered Transformer one of the Thirteen. Despite his age, Vector Prime is very powerful, and can warp both space and time.




Prima was the second Matrix bearer (after The Great Primon), as dictated by the Creation Matrix itself, and the first Transformer, or first prime born a Cybertronian after The Cybertronian Revolutionary War (against The Quintesson Empire) wich freed all Transformers.

Described as a warrior of light, and the "First Made", Prima is the first Transformer created by Primus, is the original holder of the Matrix of Leadership, and wields a legendary sword called the Star Saber.

Alpha Trion

An 'The Archivist of Iacon' who writes down historic and future events in a book called the Covenant of Primus with the Quill. He first appeared in the second season of The Transformers in 1985, and for many years was portrayed merely as a wise and elderly Autobot with no connection to the Thirteen. This was until Hasbro retroactively made him a member in 2010, for the Aligned Continuity.
