Far away in a distant galaxy, the people of the planet Prysmos lived in an age of great technology. They had taken control of all of the sources of energy, and enjoyed a life of comfort and ease for 7,000 years... but this was not to last, for the realignment of the three blazing suns of Prysmos signaled the end of the age of science and technology. When all of the electrical energy have been depleted from the world, an age of magic began. But it would take some time before men would believe this.
Years passed, and as the old order collapsed a new more primitive order rose form the rubble. Knowing that the balance of power between Darkstorm and Leoric could easily be tipped, both frantically searched for a military advantage. The ancient wizards Merklyn contacted both parties and told them that he was seeking brave knights, men and women of vision, as he wished to teach them the ways of magic.
Several knights then quest for magic, with only 14 succeeding. They were rewarded by giving them animal totems, which represented their true self in animal form. Those knights who carried staffs were also given great powers, such as Wisdom, Knowledge, Destruction, Invulnerability, Fear and a variety of others. Those knights without staffs were given the ability to empower vehicles. The two sides battle each other for control of the magic, as well as the rule of New Valarak and Prysmos.
This 13 part cartoon series, 6 part comic mini-series and short lived toyline is given new life by the team behind Transformers At The Moon.
The issue starts with a one-page flash back to issue one and then picks up the pace with Virulina and Cindarr taking the head of Kup back to Merklynn. Much to Leoric's surprise, and disgust, Merklynn has also destroyed a couple of Transformers and is happy to see that Virulina "took his hint".
Whilst Virulina and the Darkling Lords stir up a crowd of Prysmosians, Leoric meets with the other Spectral Knights (Arzon, Witterquick, Ectar and Galadria) to discuss what is going on and how they can, and must, stop the Darkling Lords for their species to survive (as they fear diar retribution from the Transformers).
The Spectral Knights attack the Darkling Lords with a mixture of success. Witterquick uses his super-speed to get the best of Cravex, whilst Galadria takes on Cindarr (both transform into Animal form). Ectar gets the best of Lexor until the crowd starts hurling food and attacking the Spectral Knights.
