The Covenant is a group of ancient robots created by Primus to guard against the Omega Point. Before he became Cybertron, Primus had already conceived his grand plan of trapping Unicron and creating new life to carry on his fight, but he needed to make sure it would work. So, on a small moon, Primus tested his ability to create robotic life. These life forms were the Covenant, charged by their creator to watch over their younger cousins, the Transformers, and to stand ready to join the fight against Unicron at a foretold time known as the Omega Point.
Many members of the Covenant were not named in the original "Reaching the Omega Point" story, though a list of all their members was included with the follow-up comic.
As a result, though all of the Covenant members appear in the BotCon 2000 comic, it's not always clear who is who. There are some members whose identification is blindingly obvious, others who are less certain but still generally agreed upon, and finally, four Covenant members for whom matching a name with a form would essentially be a guess.
Note: Bold names are positively identified; italicized names are tentatively identified members.
- ↑ Leonicus was the first member of the Covenant created by Primus. Though they recognize no rank among themselves, the other Covenant members often look to Leonicus as leader.
- ↑ Libras, a female Transformer, takes her name from the zodiac sign of Libra, the scales. The most agreed-upon Covenant member outside of the main bunch.
- ↑ The uncertain members are Cancix, Piscor, Sagittarii and Aquator.
