Name: Novarx, the Rooting Destroyer
An explorer from Verdanth, Novarx took shelter on the desert planet of Scaldron when the Darkspore invaded. Originally a biologist, Novarx was hunted and pursued by Destructor Orcus himself. He would have become another one of Orcus's experiments had it not been for the intervention of Crogenitor Astra.
Astra took pity on the sight of this brave little warrior fighting the cruel Crogenitor, and for reasons mostly unknown, decided to help. Astra struck at Orcus through his "Cloud of Death" and would have disembowled him had it not been for his shield of thorns. This gave Novarx enough time to escape and let the two titans clash.
What Novarx did not know, is that Astra has shot him with a dart that would change him forever. The neurodioxide in his blood made him pass out within hours.
When he awoke, he was much larger, and, to his horror, covered in thorns. Novarx had become part plant. His skin was sharp and spiny, and his muscle size had been doubled. Novarx flew to Scaldron to seek shelter with the Crogenitor empire, but it was too late.
Novarx joined the Crogenitors in the Desert Necropolis, where he killed hordes of Darkspore. He rooted them to the spot with his fists, and then, cut them apart.
When The Corruptor arrived, Novarx went into hiding forever, waiting for the day where he could slay Orcus and avenge Astra
