The name or term "Visionaries" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Visionaries (disambiguation).

Every planet needs protectors and on Prysmos, that role was taken up by the powerful Visionaries. The ambition of one of their number, the power hungry Darkstorm, caused the group to splinter into the Spectral Knights and the Darkling Lords.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

After the Trinary Re-Alignment had reverted Prysmos to an arcane state, the wizard Merklynn chose a group of Prysmosians onto whom he imparted artifacts of great magical power to become his Visionaries.

Merklynn had been hasty in crafting the Alignment, however, and the ternary stars drifted out of alignment, unleashing gravitational forces that tore Prysmos apart. Though millions of Prysmosians died, the majority of the Visionaries managed to escape their planet. Schismatic TFWikiFavicon.png

In 2018, the surviving Visionaries were teleported onto Cybertron to take refuge in New Prysmos where they debated how to proceed with regards to their Cybertronian hosts though not all the Visionaries chose to attend the meetings. Schismatic TFWikiFavicon.png

The Visionaries splintered even further after Virulina murdered Kup and declared war on the Cybertronians. The Spectral Knights opposed her plan of genocide but in doing so, they earned the ire of the ordinary Prysmosian citizens and were chased out of New Prysmos. The Darkling Lords then consolidated their hold on the city while the Knights sought out the Cybertronians as allies to derail the plans of Merklynn and the Lords.

Seeking to heal the rift between Darkling Lords and Spectral Knights, Virulina sought the remainder of the Spectral Knights, now under Cryotek's command, and convinced them to pledge allegiance to her.

When Unicron attacked Cybertron, Windblade sought out Leoric to use Prysmosian magic to teleport the Cybertronian race to Earth. Though the Visionaries managed to evacuate Cybertron before Unicron destroyed it, Windblade noted they'd hadn't made the trip to Earth. Road's End TFWikiFavicon.png
