In the distant past, the 998th generation of a lineage of symbiotes was born on the planet Klyntar, hatched from a clutch of eggs in a cavern. As a member of the Agents of the Cosmos, its first host, an inhabitant of an icy world, proved to be evil and used the symbiote to carry out a genocide against his homeworld, twisting it into a predatory and hate-filled being addicted to rage. Despite this, rather than seeking to dominate its subsequent hosts, the Klyntar desired to bond with and protect them. As a result, it was imprisoned by its brethren, who considered it an aberration and feared it would contaminate the gene pool. This prison was later inadvertently incorporated into the makeup of Battleworld by the Beyonder.
