The Bard of Darkmount is the most renowned poet and playwright of Cybertron. His masterpiece, 'Xal Unbound' is regarded as the turning point of philosophy and theater for Cybertronian kind. When the war came, he withdrew to his home beyond Darkmount. He did not interfere with the war and the war, bizarrely, returned the favor. It was only when the wall between worlds was breached that he stirred from his sanctuary. His involvement in recent events is a baffling curiosity to most and a dire warning to the wise.
The poet's sonic cannon shatters steel and his pick can lay even the most terrifying Dinobot low, but his voice is his true power. His songs and poems dispel his allies' fears and crush his foes morale. He is full of joy and wit, to the point that rumors circulate he has supernatural insight that sets him beyond worldly concerns.
