Over three thousand years in the distant past, Helspont was Artus, prince of the Daemonite home world and galactic empire. One of his greatest concerns was the apparent genetic decline of the Daemonite race, which he believed was caused by the Daemonite genepool becoming tainted by the DNA of other alien races in breeding. Infant mortality rates, auto-immune diseases and cancers were steadily on the rise, and Artus' fears were compounded when his wife died in childbirth.
Disgusted by the apathy and decadence of the Daemonite ruling class (which included his own mother, the queen), Artus left the Daemonite home world and set out into the universe with the goal of restoring the Daemonites to the glorious heights they had reached in the past when they were conquerors of the universe.
