Biography

Arctur was part of a contingent of villains who created the Doom Box, a powerful weapon that had the capability to destroy anything in its field. However, upon completion of the Doom Box, Arctur discovered that it could not be shut off, and if used once the entire galaxy would be destroyed. Despite Deneb's disagreement with his decision, Arctur shattered the Doom Box into three fragments and hid them around the galaxy on various planets.

For the next five thousand years Arctur watched and guarded the Doom Box's secrets. A villain named Core Hunter eventually found the fragment locations using a map Deneb originally created. Arctur realized that the only way to neutralize the Doom Box would be to activate it and have its energy absorbed by Core Hunter's Hero Core Remover Tool which was specially equipped to handle high amounts of energy. Core Hunter was initially imprisoned after ensuring the security of the Doom Box shards, but later escaped, and went to retrieve them.

Arctur saved Core Hunter on a criminal planet from Dunkan Bulk's Missile Launcher when Core Hunter was retrieving the second fragment. He then told him that the first fragment's location was about to be discovered by Heroes. After Core Hunter retrieved it, Heroes Preston Stormer and William Furno encountered Arctur, who gave them Speeda Demon's name as a lead before vanishing. He later appeared on the original planet where the Doom Box was forged and introduced himself to Daniel Rocka who had followed the Speeda Demon lead to the planet. Arctur then appeared when Core Hunter accidentally reformed the Doom Box, and teleported him to the planet it was forged. Questioned by the Heroes, Arctur revealed that he had been helping Core Hunter only to see the Doom Box destroyed, which only Core Hunter could do. Piloting the Heroes to the planet, Arctur led them to Core Hunter, and Rocka joined them. They confronted Core Hunter, and Stormer goaded Core Hunter into forming the box under Arctur's direction, so it could be deactivated. Core Hunter angrily fired his Plasma Shooter at Stormer, but Arctur intercepted the shot, which fatally wounded him. He succumbed to his injuries, believing himself absolved of his crimes, as the Heroes followed his instructions, eventually succeeding in disarming the Doom Box.

Abilities and Traits

Arctur felt remorse at creating the Doom Box, and spent the rest of his life trying to make it up. He was very enigmatic, and was able to manipulate Core Hunter and the Heroes both in order to achieve his final goal. Arctur could vanish and reappear in different places at will, as well as being able to transport other beings, and had reptilian features as well as wearing a hooded robe.
