There came a time when the concept of evil was unleashed throughout the universe and the Maltusians now on Oa felt themselves to blame. Now immortal, these cosmic beings felt it their duty to solve the problem. Their discussions led to a deep, irreparable rift among the male Oans: some wanted direct "hands on" intervention while others felt surrogates were the best way to operate. The more aggressive Oans left their world and their ways, going deep into the universe, their ultimate goals unknown.

Little was heard from those Oans for billions of years until finally, word reached the known populated universe that agents of NEMO (Network for the Establishment and Maintenance of Order) were roaming the stars. They challenged evil in all its forms and fought it bravely, without fear; sacrificing their lives to bring justice to the needy.

Rivaling the fabled Green Lantern Corps themselves, it seems these Darkstars, with their powerful armor and intensive training, were continuing to grow in strength and resourcefulness.

Among these Darkstars was a veteran, a man who had seen just about all you could imagine: Ferrin Colos, survivor of the ravaged world Zamba. When his world was attacked by raiders, he vowed vengeance and signed up to be a Darkstar so no other world would suffer as his did. Over time, his enthusiasm faded and a hard cynicism invaded. Now, feeling old and tired, Cobs did not care if he survived his next mission.

When the Guardians of the Universe went to another dimension in order to reevaluate their goals, the Oans-now called Controllers-had their Darkstars sweep out through the universe, filling the obvious void left by the dismantled Green Lantern Corps. Their influence and success made them respected-and feared. The upstart mercenary organization LEGION never seemed a concern, and when the Guardians returned and the GL Corps began rebuilding, the Darkstars never slowed down.

So it was that Colos was sent after a drug smuggler and his trail led him to Earth, long considered a backwater planet of above-average cosmic importance. Colos successfully defeated the drug smugglers and their Earth-based processing operation, but rather than return him home, his supervisor, the crafty Huvah Jeddigar, orders him to remain on Earth, opening a base, keeping an eye on this increasingly important corner of the universe.

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.
