After leaving the Wreckers due to a lack of action in this new peacetime era (and disagreement on 'questionable methods' of interrogation), Devcon finds himself a loner and without a sense of peace. He prefers the seclusion of a lone-wold lifestyle, as it allows him to focus on the task at hand, and not fall prey to the distractions of attachment or sentiment. This reputation as a 'bot who gets the job done' has caught the attention of Knight Alpha Trizer, who sees the potential for such a resource on his team of Knights and the potential to reshape the aggression into a fine edge.
Working as a bounty hunter, Devcon tracks down thugs and criminals around the galaxy and brings them back to Cybertron for judgment . However one such criminal has eluded him on countless occasions: the mercenary Flamewar. Devcon is constantly lagging behind his prey, always showing up after Flamewar has committed her latest robbery or assassination. If that wasn’t enough, Flamewar knows it and taunts him at every opportunity. When approached by Alpha Trizer to join the Knights of Cybertron, Devcon had only one demand before accepting the rank of Knight Sergeant: everyone stays out of the way when it comes to apprehending his nemesis.
