Prowl is the Autobot military strategist. As such, Autobot Commander Optimus Prime keeps Prowl near at hand for his indispensable expertise. Prowl is quiet, competent, loyal, and possessed of almost endless patience.
Prowl’s dedication to logic and reason make him an excellent strategist, but not much of a socialite. He really doesn’t tend to get along well with his fellow Autobots, many of whom find his strict adherence to military protocol stifling, and his uptight personality sure doesn’t help matters. He does not react well to the unexpected, to the point that it can literally scramble his cerebral circuits. The Dinobot commander Grimlock, who is disorder made manifest, especially honks Prowl off, and Grimlock feels pretty much the same way in return, only with more swear words. He’s very fond of his acid pellets, though.
? BCE (Before the Great War)
Megatron Origin 1 – Prowl approached his commander, Sentinel Prime with a report dealing with a life-threatening assault on a senator. Sentinel Prime dismissed him to “do his job”.
Megatron Origin 2 – Prowl was briefing his fellow Autobots about the illegal gladiator matches, when Sentinel Prime came in. He told them the plan to find and detain the criminals, and ordered several groups of scouts to start looking.
Megatron Origin 3 – Prowl leads his own unit during the assault on the gladiators after Megatron’s speech. He personally leads the cybertronians dealing with Megatron himself, and eventually manages to have him restrained in Inhibitor Claws.
Megatron Origin 4 – Prowl was part of the counter-offensive led by Sentinel Prime against the escaped gladiators who were laying waste to Kaon. Prowl fought until Sentinel Prime’s dead body was dropped in the midst of his position. Prowl called for a redeployment of forces, and ordered everybody to retreat from Kaon.
