- "Love is like a rose. It looks beautiful on the outside but there is always pain hidden somewhere."
Draikig hailed originally hailed from Polyhex, along with his two brothers, Tankred and Blackfire, but unlike most of the city-state’s inhabitants, they didn’t worship either Primus or Unicron, instead following a belief they had encountered on their travels throughout the galaxy, the belief of the Christians of Earth.
They each took upon themselves the task of representing one each of the three prominent virtues; Love, Faith and Hope. Draikig, the eldest of the three brothers, picked first and chose to represent love. He immersed himself in love, by killing those too wounded to survive, by being prepared to sacrifice everything for his brothers and, later, his teammates.
The finding and corruption of the three swords
He and his brothers also signed on as mercenaries to the Decepticon faction, and participated in many military actions which eventually caused them to catch the eye of Straxus, the Governor of Polyhex, who inducted them into a unit he was soon going to give to a prominent transformer of Polyhex.
After the incident of Vertox Quintus, the three brothers, were drawn back to Earth, and the city of Chicago. Here, they found three swords, a broadsword, a katana and a sabre. Draikig picked up the broadsword, Ammoracchius, and as he did so the blade emitted a white glow. Feeling the inherent power the holiness of the blade he held, he and his brothers took the swords to Unicron’s head. There the virtues represented by the swords, and the transformers were changed, made darker, yet stayed the same virtue.
After that meeting, and the changes brought about by it, Draikig was no longer the loving gentle soldier he once was, he fought with the rage of those whose love has become an obsession and have had that obsession denied and the bitterness of those who are heartbroken. But this change does not dismay him, he welcomes it, and loves it and the feelings it inspires.
