Beast Form: White Tiger
|Tigertron was the first
Maximal Protoform to leave orbit of Prehistoric Earth, and land. As
soon as his Stasis Pod was spotted, the race was on for the Maximals and
the Predicons to claim a new soldier. Thanks to some quick thinking
by Dinobot and Optimus Primal, the Maximals won that race with the help of
a laser modified for Line of Site transmission. Since a White Tiger
was the only animal in the area, Tigertron took on that form. Unfortunately
in the landing, some of his circuits were damaged, so he remained in beast
form until he knew for sure who's side he was on when the Maximals and
Predicons showed up.
Seeing how the Maximals were willing to let the Predicons have what they wanted when they threatened innocent creatures, Tigertron showed himself, and helped to defeat them. Due to his malfunction though, he chose not to return to the Axalon, but to remain out in the wild as a field agent. Optimus Primal agreed to this, and let him do as he wished. This became a trend with Tigertron, though he always showed up when he was needed, he remained in the wild, among who he considered his own kind. There was only 2 Maximals that Tigertron felt a kinship with, Cheetor, who he shared a feline based beast form, and Airrazor, who, like himself, was one of the orbiting Protoform until her Stasis Pod crashed on Earth, much like his.
After the quantum surge that followed the destruction of alien weapon, Tigertron, along with Airrazor, left the other Maximals to find how much damage was done to the planet. It was not long after this that they were both captured by the aliens, and eventually had their superstructures combined by them to create their messenger, Tiger Hawk. Fortunately, both Tigertron and Airrazor were able to combine their Sparks and take over the body, thus rejoining the Maximals, at least for a short time.
