History

A pink Kree, Eightyfive was born a slave to the blue-skinned Kree. His family was killed before he managed to escape captivity, and he took the number of the cell block they had been held in as his name. Escaping, he was recruited into Force by Interface.

When Interface learned of a sacred shield which supposedly bestowed great power on its wielder, he led Force on a search for the shield. They eventually tracked it down to a planet, where the computer that runs the world, Main Frame, forced them to compete against another team that had been searching for the shield, the Guardians of the Galaxy. Eightyfive faced Aleta, sealing her within a coffin of metal.

Initially planning to leave her there, he reconsidered, uncomfortable at leaving even his enemies confined.

With the other contests resulting in draws, the final contest came down to Interface versus Vance Astro. Interface easily subdued Astro, but when he seized the shield, he didn’t understand that its ’power‘ was symbolic, and was so caught up in trying to access the power that Astro managed to take it away from him.

Losing due to his motives rather than the contest, Interface, Force, and their ship were teleported 15 parsecs (1 parsec = 3.26 light years) away by Mainframe. Seeing no benefit in returning to challenge Mainframe or the Guardians, Interface ordered them to move on to other possibilities.

When Force were attacked by Malevolence, their resistance was easily dispatched, apart from Brahl, who happily made a deal with Malevolence. She declared them her slaves, using her power to keep them in line, and assigning Brahl as their new leader.

Malevolence led them to Homeworld, centre of the Universal Church of Truth, where she challenged for the role of matriarch to Protégé. When Malevolence sensed the Guardians, with her main rival, Aleta, approaching, she dispatched Force to delay them.

Force attack the Guardians on board their vessel, where he was attacked by young Guardian Replica, who revealed herself to be a Skrull when she realised he was a Kree. He was unable to battle her ferocity, and was soon at her mercy. Martinex convinces Interface to call a truce, and her team mates talked Replica out of killing Eightyfive. Brahl fled to tell Malevolence of their treachery.

Joining forces, Force and the Guardians travel to Homeworld to confront Malevolence. She convinces Protégéthat they are coming to harm him, so he dispatches his elite guards, forcing them to use their powers in his presence. The battle is stopped when Starhawk reabsorbs Aleta, and leaves, allowing Malevolence to win by default.

Force and the Guardians are spared when the Guardian, Replica, herself a Universalite, begs Protégé for their lives. He accedes, banishing them from Homeworld. Force leave, looking for new opportunities for profit.


Personality

Slightly flamboyant, Eightyfive can appear bitter and hardened, but is not at heart a killer, and has a particular dislike of imprisonment, preferring not to leave his enemies trapped by his powers. He’s loyal to the group, seeing them as the only family he now has.
