Glyph is a female Autobot who was dispatched aboard a vessel named Sojourner's Passage-after a section of the Covenant of Primus-on a long distance exploration mission by Rodimus Prime shortly after the defeat of Unicron. One of several such scientists, Glyph nonetheless appears to have been one of the few survivors, crash landing on a planet inhabited by primitive humanoids with only Tap-Out, her comrade in arms, for protection. For several hundred years afterwards-throughout the remainder of World War I and the Pax Cybertronia-Glyph remained on the planet, studying the humanoids in her role as an archaeometrist. During her studies, she became familiar with their legends of "the Protectors", a group of legendary heroes meant to protect an alien energy source they called "the Divine Light", which had landed on their planet generations ago.

Glyph found her faith in the legend confirmed when the Wreckers under Primal Prime arrived. Believing them to be the Protectors, she told them the legends, warning that they had to keep the Divine Light from falling into the hands of "five faced demons". The prophecy took on an eerie truth as the Divine Light was stolen by the Decepticon Cyclonus, who departed to deliver it to his master Cryotek, an ally of the Quintessons. When the Wreckers left Archa 9 they took Tap-Out with them, but left CatSCAN and Glyph on the planet.
