Fictional character biography

Arkillo is recruited by Sinestro to join the Sinestro Corps,[1] which is based in the anti-matter universe on the planet of Qward.[2] He is the drill sergeant of the new corps.

He battled Kilowog, the Green Lantern drill instructor, on Mogo, only to be buried under falling rubble.[3] When he faced Kilowog again, Kilowog crushed him with an aircraft carrier.[4] Kilowog then removed Arkillo's ring (and whole finger). During an argument, Arkillo's tongue is ripped out by Mongul, which forces him to speak through his ring.[5]

[12] During the final fight against Invictus, Arkillo is able to use his new ring to attack Invictus with the 'spirits' of his people, but his ability to control this illusion is limited. He subsequently leaves the 'New Guardians' after the battle is concluded, disgusted at the discovery that Sayd manipulated the events that brought them together.[11]
