The Cult of Unicron is a shadowy religious organization on Cybertron.
The secret cult of Unicron attempts to slay and discredit worshipers of Primus. Most of its members wear Unicron-inspired helmets and are armed with three-bladed knives. One of the religion's offshoots was the Cult of Galvatron.
The Fallen is said to have been one of Primus's original Thirteen Transformers. When the consumer goods robots rose up against the Quintessons in a rebellion that ultimately forced the aliens off the planet, the military hardware robots, now known as "Decepticons" and led by Megatronus, set their sights on conquering Cybertron for themselves. Two Autobot leaders fell during the war that ensued, and Sentinel Major inherited the Matrix of Leadership and became Sentinel Prime, leader of the Autobots.
Megatronus, however, proved too much for the succession of Primes, and Megatronus and his generals seemed on the brink of conquering Cybertron once and for all. However, during this time Megatronus uncovered evidence of the existence of Unicron, and shifted his focus to preparing the planet for sacrifice to the Dark God. The Decepticon Generals, alarmed at this development, turned against Megatronus, and trapped him in a subspace cell, taking over leadership of the Decepticons themselves.
Disgraced, the name 'Megatronus' was nearly erased from history, and the former Decepticon leader became referred to only as The Fallen, and even then only in hushed tones by others who shared his vision and formed the Cult of Unicron. The Cult currently strives to free The Fallen and bring back the Dark God Unicron.
In 2014, Ram Horn was involved in altercation with Starscream in Th' Bar. After Pulver made them take it outside, Starscream proceeded to beat Ram Horn mercilessly, and he was barely rescued by the Acolytes of Unicron.
Later that year, Ram Horn became the unfortunate victim of a hungry Windshear, who drained his energon until Horn was killed, and learned some of his secrets as well. Ram Horn's body was then brought back to Trypticon for study.
In 2021, Obsidian slowly started to rebuild the cult of Unicron with all-new recruits.
