The Pale Bishop was the name taken by an Oan after he broke with his fellow members of the Guardians of the Universe. After his kind discovered the Emotional Spectrum, this Oan became overwhelmed by the emotions from this reservoir of energy with him succumbing to Fear. This caused him to flee his fellow Guardians and he sought to rid himself of emotions. Whilst the Guardians of the Universe experimented to harness the Emotional Spectrum their former comrade had divested himself of emotions. He then formed a cult of anti emotion known as The Paling. Members of the cult were stripped of emotion that was deemed heretical and blindly served the Bishop who was the high priest of their order as they sought nothingness. At some point centuries ago, the Pale Bishop came to Earth to rid it of emotion only to battle the Kahndaqian champion Black Adam. Black Adam managed to kill the Bishop who's body was interned in an ancient crypt but in reality he remained dormant for years. Meanwhile, in space, the Paling continued to operate with the Pale Vicars continuing their master's mission.
