This is for anything I do that uses an existing character or toy and isn't a wholly original one or product of a Digi-Bash. Kicking things off with the Saurian Strike Team, complete with the "English names" for them that Vector Prime couldn't recall:
Saurian Strike Team
The Saurian Strike Team are a trio of hand-to-hand combat experts who happen to turn into dinosaurs. Hailing from Animatros, the Jungle Planet, Fistfight, Závr, and Razorwing, they've since joined the new space bridge exploration project in order to spread their knowledge of fighting, find new opponents, and maybe even learn new skills of their own. While most tend to assume that they're all dull witted and boorish like other dino-bots tend to be, all three are actually pretty sharp, and so those who underestimate them tend to make costly mistakes.
In the days when the Jungle Planet was menaced by raiders, none were more at risk than the planet's population of Mini-Cons. Smaller and weaker than the "bulks", they were considered easy pickings by the marauders. One Mini-Con refused to accept this, and sought to grow stronger in order to protect his village. Training day and night, Fistfight worked to increase his skill and power, until he grew powerful enough to take on full-sized Transformers all on his own. Initially, he saw the future leader of Jungle Planet, Scourge, as an inspiration, but when the dragon-bot began to oppress the populace under the rule of "might makes right", he became disillusioned. Now that Scourge has seen the error of his ways, Fistfight is skeptical, but willing to give him a chance after he helped save the universe from Galvatron.
The youngest of the Saurian Strike Team, Závr was once little more than a ball of rage and anger, caring for little else other than besting his opponents and lording his strength over other 'bots. A firm believer in Scourge's philosophy of strength begetting power, he considered himself invincible and his violent ways justified. That all changed when he encountered Fistfight, who bested him handily. Závr challenged the other Mini-Con repeatedly, but each time, the outcome was the same. Seeing the other Mini-Con's frustration, Fistfight reached out to Závr, and sought to teach him a better way. Závr still has a lot to learn, but he no longer behaves like a vicious beast out to take on anyone he sees, and hopes one day he'll gain enough insight to tackle Fistfight - and win, this time!
The former elder of Fistfight's village. Razorwing had all but given up hope that his village could live in peace by the time Fistfight started training to defend their home, but the younger bot's determination and eventual success ended up reaching the old bird. While Razorwing is the least proficient of the Saurian Strike Team, that doesn't mean one should count him out, as he's relatively quick and agile despite his old age. He's particularly proficient in delivering pointed strikes with his bladed wingtips. As one might expect, he gets along quite well with his fellow old-timer, Backstop, and since the two joined the crew of the same ship, they've taken to spending large amounts of time talking with one another and reminiscing about their long lives.
I will also note that I take requests.
