Disposition: He is rough and very violent but while he is acting violently he will tell people that he is doing it for they own good. He strongly believes that the ends justify the means and as a second problem the end are never clear and are actually suggestions from the Supernatural Intelligence. As well, he is now convinced that he is superior to all other life forms and should be revered as a God. Fellow humanoids are simply ignorant savages.

Long ago, Joran was a well known and practically worshiped officer in the United Worlds Warlock. He started at the rank of private and quickly made officer rank. He was involved in a boarding action in one of the most important battle the new nation had with the Splugorth. He quickly became a Major in the newly formed United Worlds Warlock marines and became very involved in the training of this elite force. On a simple training mission, the ship he was on came under attack by a pirate band. His ship was destroyed but just before he died, he saw a bright light. The cosmic forge spoke to him and offered to him the opportunity to become a cosmic knight. He accepted the bright light and became a knight.

For many long years, he served as a champion of good. Without him, there are planets that would have been overwhelmed by pirates. He never accepted rewards and was noble in thought as well as deed. This went on for years seemingly beyond count and other then getting a bit on the arrogant side. His status as a hero was not to continue though.

The events were simple enough. He was fighting to defend a small colony from Kreeghor invaders. There were some travelers through the system that were mercenaries and he demanded that they help him fight. The leader was most interested in money and asked him for payment or he would leave. Joran got angry and started arguing with leader. The situation came to a boil and he murdered the mercenary leader. Joran felt pain thoughout his entire body as he crashed from the graces of the Cosmic Forge. He was unable to accept the events and his brain snapped.

He might have ended up committing suicide or dying in a blaze of glory but a final event interfered. A being contacted him and said that it was the real cosmic forge and that he just needs to accept it for everything to be explained. He accepted instantly but instead of it being the Cosmic Forge, it was a Supernatural Intelligence. He was told that he was taught wrong and that he must be stronger and the ends always justify the means. Thought time, he slowly went from a hero to one of the greatest villains in the Three Galaxies. He still believes he is a hero but that is only in his mind.
