Long ago, Lord Algere the Impaler was a name feared across the cosmos. Conquering planets in the name of the Arcose and its empire, he strategized and plotted the downfall of many planets and star systems. During one such campaign, however, he met a human who would change his life irrevocably. She was a human warrior acting in defense of Earth. They clashed in many conflicts until the unthinkable happened. Algere fell in love with this foreign beauty. He ordered the retreat of his forces and remained behind with Clair, the human woman, disappearing from the Arsocian military and political maps for a time.
It wasn't long before the two were wed. They spent a few wonderful happy years together before Algere's enemies came looking for him. That day, Algere was away, attending to some errands while Clair waited for him to return back at their humble abode. When he eventually returned, his home was in ruins and amid the ruins was his Clair. She was mortally wounded, left to die. Holding her in his arms for one last time, Algere was frantic, making plans and contingencies that all led to nothing. Clair managed to get his attention, uttering her dying wish. Her wish was that he should not seek revenge. To that end, Algere solemnly agreed, going so far as to promise that he would never again unleash his true form. Smiling, Clair died in his arms.
Afterwards, Algere buried her and retreated into cryo sleep. He was unwilling to live out the rest of his achingly long life without Clair. So, he decided to sleep until the weakness that long-term cryo sleep crippled his body and stole his life.
