Starriors

Slaughter Steelgrave, leader of the Destructors, is a Destructor Wastor equipped with a vibro-chisel in his chest. His right hand is claw and his left hand is a double laser.

Destructors are programmed to destroy invading aliens. Wastors are a humanoid series of Starrior, roughly the same height as an adult human, though somewhat bulkier.

He fears the return of man and any sign of rebellion from the Protectors, to the point that he will kill anyone who might allow those things to occur.

Note: The Starriors series is considered a parallel universe in the Transformers series. In the Transformers universe there is a Predacon named Steelgrave, but he is seemingly unrelated to the Starrior.
