"Well it occurs to me that, if Magnus doesn't return in time, history will judge you as having made the right decision... perhaps even one that would later give the Autobots their victory. You'd be a hero! However... if Magnus WAS to get back to Cybertron in time and YOU weren't ready..."
One of the very first Autobots, Emirate Xaaron is the head of the Autobot High Council. Wise beyond measure, and highly intelligent, he is not above cruelty to ensure what needs to be done is done. A veteran of combat in wars forgotten vorns ago by most, he assumed the role of a politician, swiftly becoming the most respected member of the Autobot high council, and eventually the head of said council. His Alternate form has not been seen since before he took office in the council, and he has not been seen wielding any form of weapon since then either, other than his keen mind, and the Autobot army itself.
