Character description from "tech spec:
In his youth, Starscram was one of the most brilliant sceintific minds to ever graduate from the Crystal city Science institute on Cybertron.  When the Great War between the Autobots and the Decepticons began, Optimus Prime tried to recruit Starscream but he refused.  As a consequence, Optimus ordered the crystal Cith destroyed as Starscream watched in horror.  Shortly afterward, the Decepticons rescued starscream and it was at that point he knew his purpose.  He swore a life of debto to Megatron and decided to apply his scientific skills toward the development of ways to fight the Autobots.  Through his work, he found ways to design more complex transformation based on Megatrons' original technology and has developed weapons able to effectively counter Prime's opression.  He approaches his work witha grim demeanor and the feverent hope that one day, rather than using his skills for destruction, he will instead be able to work for the betterment of Cybertron.
