On the planet Dryad, Blok's people kept their existence secret from the human colonists until Blok's curiosity led him to expose himself as a living, sentient creature. He helped found the League of Super-Assassins along with five human survivors of Dryad after being convinced the Dark Man that Legionnaires had been responsible for that planet's destruction. The League of Super-Assassins' attack on the Legion ended in their defeat and capture. Blok, after realizing he had been tricked, was the only one of the League to assist the Legionnaires against the Dark Man, after which he became a member. While he still grieves for Dryad, he knows his people will regrow their bodies when their remains reach a world capable of sustaining their silicon-based life.

Blok can probably be broken, just as a regular rock can, but chances are he is more durable. His massive size (3,66 meters tall) also makes him slow and sometimes clumsy. His large fingers also make it difficult to pick objects or use small electronic devices needing small fingers. He is so dense and heavy that he needs a special tailored ring for him to fly.

His innate curiosity led him to the Legion's archives in an attempt to study and understand these fascinating characters from many worlds. He can be found at any large Legionnaire gathering, there to constantly examine and study humanoid relations. He has developed a special friendship with the White Witch and appears to have a crush on her. His imposing physical appearance causes many newcomers to be a little intimidated by him until his stiff but charming manner wins them over. Although far older chronologically than any other Legionnaire, he is just barely into adolescence by his race's standards. He has adopted the role of Legion archivist, and any new Legionnaire or Academy student benefits from time spent with his recorded observations.

Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
