"He lived a warrior...and died a hero. Let his spark join the Matrix....the greatest of Cybertron." -Optimus Primal, "Code of Hero".
Many of you probably already know what happened to Prowl in the last episode of Transformers Animated.
I'm a bit bummed also....alongside Swindle, Prowl was one of my favorite characters on the show. He had an awesome alternate mode, often saved the day through his ninja skills and determination....hell, he even exists on the team as the 'lone wolf' character, one of my favorite archtypes.
...and, because of him, Detroit and all of the people who live there weren't blow to Kingdom Come.
To be honest, the most noble death I have ever seen in Transformers will still be Dinobot in Code of Hero, because God damn. A Pred, out of all things, giving his life to save mankind and the future? (Yes, I know he's nominally Maximal, but he was still loyal to his Predacon heritage.)
However, this comes second to me.
Prowl, may you rest in peace. You lived a badass, and died a hero.
By the way, this is the first time in a good while I've ever attempted to draw a Transformer, much less one from the Animated universe.
Colour version coming soon.
