Ravage's loyality to the Decepticon leader, Megatron, is absolute. One of Soundwave's most reliable spies, Ravage believes unwaveringly in the Decepticon cause, and Megatron embodies that cause. To better serve Megatron and the Decepticons, Ravage has become the most efficient and deadly war machine under his command. He hides himself in the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment to strike with grim accuracy. His name is synonymous with stealth. His survivors are few.

Marvel comics Continuity
On Cybertron before the war, Ravage was a loyal guard for the Autobot Overlords who ruled over the planet. Over time he witnessed the world's governing body crumble around him and fracture off into waring city states. During one of these wars, Ravage was one of the bodyguards who attempted to escort his Overlord master to safety. During the perilous journey Ravage refused to give the dying Overlord any of his energon and instead allied himself with Megatron who he believe would be the future leader of Cybertron.
4 million years ago, Ravage was one of the Decepticons who attacked the Ark. Their failed hijacking resulted in the Ark crashing to Earth, embedding itself into the side of a volcano. In 1984 the volcano errupted waking the deactivated Ravage and Transformers onboard. Cybertrons war had reached planet Earth.

When he was resurrected by Magmatron it was stated that he was two parts Predacon and one part Decepticon. When Magmatron returned to the past to raise an army using blank protoforms he found Ravages remains and his well-preserved spark. He was ressurected as a Transmetal 2 jaguar.
Magmatron mentions that as while he is known as the Tripedacus Agent, Ravage is only loyal to himself and his own advancement. It is this underhandedness that allowed Ravage to survive Cybertron's Great War.

He was then seen again in Egypt hunting for Sam using a Insecticon to find him. Once the fighting started he tried to attack Bumblebee only to have his spine ripped out by the brave Autobot.
