- "I once was an architect of buildings, I am now the architect of your demise."
Before the war, Castigatron was a celebrated architect who had a passion for designing buildings that could only be described as architectural masterpieces. His main line of work was designing and building hospitals, which were to prove invaluable years later during the war.
During his time as a member of the team, he has gained a reputation for being a remorseless killer, who fights as if it was second nature. But he only fights as he realises it is necessary, to have peace for all people and he hopes that one day, when there are no more wars, he can go back to designing buildings.
His experience as an architect and the skills he learnt as a soldier have come together through the years to enable him to know the best method of assaulting the fortresses and bastions of the Autobots, and to create breaches in their walls for the other, more vicious members of the team to use to their advantage. If there are ways of entering a fortress that leave the building intact, he will try and pursue that first, as in his eyes, destroying such artful pieces of architecture is blasphemy.
Despite the team’s many diabolical acts, he believes that they act for a greater good, to end the fighting, and the suffering the war causes, as quickly as is possible.
