- General Ghyrik is a Quintesson from the Marvel Comics UK portion of the Generation One continuity family.
General Ghyrik is a high-ranking Quintesson. Like most of his race, he is haughty, cruel, sneaky, deceptive... and very overconfident.
He ganked the Matrix. But hey, who hasn't?
Marvel Comics continuity
Faced with the death of his world, the planet Quintesson, General Ghyrik was ordered by Lord Kledji to take a team to Earth and destroy Autobot City. Only then could the Quintessons have a chance of taking over the Transformers' homeworld of Cybertron, securing a replacement planet for their race.
- General Ghyrik is based on the Gatekeeper/Executioner variant of Quintesson.
