|“||Prime #1: We have been watching you for a long long time.
Prime #2: You have fought for Optimus, our last descendant, with courage and with sacrifice, the virtues of a leader. A leader worthy of our secret: the Matrix of Leadership is not found. It is earned. Return now to Optimus. Merge the Matrix with his spark. It is, and always has been, your destiny.
|~ The Primes to Sam Witwicky before reviving him|
The Dynasty of Primes were six of the seven Primes and the original leaders of the Autobots.
In 17,000 B.C., all of the seven members set out into the universe seeking distant suns to harvest and create energon by building powerful machines called Star Harvesters. The Primes set out with a rule: Never destroy a planet with life. Until one of them tried to defy that rule, whose name forevermore was The Fallen. He started off by building a Star Harvester on Earth in order to destroy both the planet and its sun. The only way to activate the machine is with a legendary key called the Matrix of Leadership. The Primes fought against their rogue brother and defeated him to steal back the Matrix from him and buried themselves in a tomb made from their own bodies to seal it away.
After Megatron killed Sam Witwicky, the Primes in his vision, revealed Sam their secret: The Matrix of Leadership is not found but is earned. That is why it crumbled into dust when he touched it. They then revive him to fulfill his destiny to return to Optimus and resurrect him with the Matrix.
Unlike their evil brother, The Fallen, the Primes cared for humanity and made a rule which is "never destroy a planet with life." They were also suicidals as they sacrifice their lives to seal away the Matrix of Leadership with a tomb made from their own bodies. They viewed Sam Witwicky worthy with the virtues of a leader and reveal the secret of the Matrix after he fought for their last descendant, Optimus with courage and sacrifice.
