Rook is the right hand of Jhiaxus and the secondary antagonist of the Transformers: Generation 2 comic book series.

History

Rook was created alongside his fellow Cybertronians through the process of "budding" following the Autobots departure from Cybertron. He would go on to serve under Jhiaxus aboard the Twilight.

When the Cybertronians made contact with the Autobots, Rook expressed confusion about the war his ancestors were fighting, not recognizing a distinction between the Autobots and Decepticons. Jhiaxus told him that they were simply evolutionary throwbacks.

After the encounter with the shadow parasites, Jhiaxus ordered Rook to bomb the parasites.

Rook later fought in the battle between the Autobot-Decepticon Alliance and Jhiaxus's Cybertronian fleet. After Starscream gained control of the Decepticon ship the Warworld and turned it against the Cybertronians, and the arrival of the Swarm, Rook contacted his and Jhiaxus's master, the Liege Maximo, to inform them of their increasing problems. Deducing that the situation was getting out of hand, Rook retreated along with the rest of Jhiaxus's crew, save Jhiaxus himself.

Rook later reported to Liege Maximo that they had lost seventeen battalions and that Jhiaxus was presumed deceased. The Liege Maximo told Rook that the battalions destroyed were a mere fraction of his army and that the "day of reckoning" would soon come.
