Revenant was first seen in the PvP developer diary, and later in a picture of the Darkspore Editor. His name was revealed on the Darkspore forum.
In the recorded millennia of the Nocturni Legion’s wars of enslavement, few Legionnaires have evoked as much terror as Revenant. According to legend, a neutron beam struck him during combat, and instead of killing him, filled him with energy. But those legends were wrong, hiding a far more grotesque fate.
Revenant was the victim of Crogenitor Ingto's eco-toxification program. What the Nocturni perceived as a string of natural disasters, from volcanic eruptions to plagues, was in fact Crogenitor Ingto’s "evolutionary" scheme to kill off the majority in favor of the most naturally resilient. Ingto then seized the survivors, subjecting them to even more painful experiments.
Ingto took the orphan grub Revenant and altered him genetically, turning him into a living battery and radiator of neutrons--in essence, a walking death ray.
Revenant soared up the ranks of the Nocturni Legion. In combat, he released endless spheres of necrogenetic energy from his head, projectiles that came to be known as “death-head grenades.”
With his hellish ability, Revenant struck at the Legion’s enemies and his own commanders from a distance, seizing the ranks of centurion, commandant and finally Praetor.
Revenant crushed realm after realm for the Nocturni Eternals, the self-proclaimed rulers of the planet, and so with unflinching confidence they dispatched their greatest warrior and his forces to engage the invading Darkspore.
The Darkspore obliterated them, and Nocturna fell.
Facing defeat for the first time, Revenant became the galaxy’s most feared guerrilla, unleashing his death ray against the Darkspore wherever he found them, all in hope of one day slaughtering the Corruptor himself.
- In traditional folklore, a revenant is a spirit that terrorizes the living.
- Revenant is the only tripod hero.
- Revenant does not posses a staff like most Tempests do. Instead, the crystal in his forhead can emit cosmic projectiles as a primary means of offense."
