History[edit | edit source]
Origin[edit | edit source]
Three billion years ago, the world of Rojira had been the home of two races. One was the Ruulans, a race of war-like creatures resembling Earth's starfish. The other race were called the Jirenn, and they were a peaceful humanoid race. The two races were separated by a barrier of volcanic disruption. The red-hued Rulanns fought amongst themselves, except during their dormant period. The creatures would suddenly freeze, turning yellow-hued while they rejuvenated their energies. The Ruulans would quickly regenerate lost limbs, or a new body if necessary. Though they were war-like, they could never know true defeat, or victory. One day, a Ruulan named Korad had found a way through the volcano field. Emerging on the other side, he discovered the Jirenn and attacked the peaceful humanoids and he killed one of them. Surprised by his discovery, he telepathically summoned other Ruulans.
Green Lantern Corps[edit | edit source]
The Jirenn had never known battle, and were helpless against the Ruulan. Rori Dag, one of the Jirenn, stepped out to lead his people, but as much as they tried to fight Korad, it was too much for them. As the Ruulan picked up a rock to crush Rori Dag, Korad turned yellow and motionless. Then a small blue man appeared with a power ring and power battery. He was one of the Guardians of the Universe. The Guardians had decided to use living beings as their agents, to overcome the forces of evil and injustice, following their failed attempt using Manhunter Androids. Thus, the Guardians created the Green Lantern Corps to replace the Manhunters. Each Guardian was to select one species to have a Green Lantern as a representative.
First Green Lantern[edit | edit source]
Rori Dag had been selected by the Guardians to be the first Green Lantern. If he was successful, there would be others. The Guardian explained the workings of the ring, and its limitations. He instructed Rori Dag that the ring was never to be used to kill. Rori Dag used the ring to create the tools to defeat Korad. He constructed a catapult and hurled Korad over the volcano field, and then closed the pathway through the field. The Guardian awarded the power battery insignia, as a symbol of the Green Lantern Corps to Rori Dag, Green Lantern of Rojira. Rori Dag is memorialized in the Crypts of Oa, overseen by the Green Lantern Morro.
