Daluk is a Neosian game which consists of soaring while carrying large boulders up a pyramidal structure. The larger the boulder and the higher the flight is what players strive for. At this sport, Galan-Tar was unmatched. He had won every contest five years in a row and had gained great notoriety doing so. It was rare for someone of his size to succeed at this game, since most players tended to be slim. Their slender shape gave them an advantage when soaring in the Neosian atmosphere.
Galan-Tar had always been girthy, but that didn't stop him from playing the sport. He had always been physically strong, so unlike the other players who tended to work on building strength, Galan had concentrated mostly on improving his flight.
When he wasn't training, Galan could be found deep in the mines, where many slaves like him worked in retrieving precious metals for their BahNu overlords. But the work was hard since the mines were running dry. Most days he simply dug and moved rocks and deeper and deeper the mine got. But the deeper they went, the lesser the BahNu presence was.
Often, they were left alone all day and, with no one supervising them, he and other Neosians started plotting against their masters. It wasn't the Neosian way, but many like him were tired of living under the BahNu. They knew that their world was dying and even if his people pretended that the status quo was better than death, less and less Neosians held that opinion.
Every day, there was news that factions across the planet were resisting the BahNu. But the Neosian leaders denounced these acts, as many of their people had been executed in response to these attacks. Galan and others like him were saddened by the news, but also more convinced that resistance was the key. After all, the Neosian population out-numbered the BahNu. If everyone took up arms, they could overthrow their overlords. And yes, many would die in the attempt. But wasn't it worth the risk?
Galan and his closest friends decided to fight back the day they found a new vein of precious ore. They waited for the end of their shift before informing the BahNu of their find. Like Galan had surmised, the BahNu descended to inspect the vein, not worried that only two guards were left to escort the workers back to camp.
Galan gave the signal and his men jumped and killed the surprised BahNu guards. It had been so easy. Neosians were more than twice their size. If it were not for their weapons, the BahNu would be little threat. Galan went back inside the mine. He carried explosives with him and when he reached the lower levels of the mine, he set them off. Tons of rocks filled the tunnels, burying the BahNu. Galan set off more explosives in different sections of the mine and caused more cave-ins.
When they reached camp, the BahNu sentries asked where the guards were and Galan told them there had been a cave-in. He lied about having lost many men as well, but since the sentries had not known how many had gone to the mines, they accepted his words as fact. They went to the mines to effect a rescue, but Galan knew that it would be fruitless. He had made sure to collapse most of the mountain on his enemies.
Days later, the world was shaken when a majestic being appeared on Neosa. He said his name was the Guardian, and he had come to save Neosa. Galan watched as the BahNu factories and equipment was obliterated by the Guardian. He cheered with his people when he saw the BahNu weaponless. He did not hesitate and grabbed the first BahNu in reach and crushed him with one hand. Others joined the fight. The BahNu had no chance.
Then, Galan felt the Guardian's gaze on him.
"Rubikhon need allies," the Guardian spoke. "It is time for you to join her in her fight. Step forward, Collapsar, and be transformed."
Galan felt his being unravelling and reassembling itself. He was not a simple Neosian anymore. He had become one of the Guardian's children.
Gravity control: Collapsar can control the force of gravity and increase or decrease it at will. Increasing the force of gravity around an object will crush it or render it ultra dense. He used this ability on the artificial moons of Neosa. By creating a dense core for each of the moons, he managed to give them a normal gravity.
Power lift: By using gravity, Collapsar can move vastly superior masses, far exceeding the 500+tons. He has moved objects approaching the size of dwarf planets.
Super strength: He has enhanced strength, enabling him to lift weights in the 200 ton range.
Space travel: He can survive and travel the rigorous expanses of interplanetary space.
Self-sustaining: His body is nourished by starlight, thus eliminating his need to eat. He can however enjoy the experience if he wishes.
Physical/energy resistance: He can resist attacks of the highest magnitude.
Omnilinguilism: Like all guardians, he can communicate with any intelligent species through guardian speech, an ability that emits vocal messages on multiple frequencies, including the psionic.
Enhanced vision: Like all guardians, he can see in various modes and can stare directly at the sun.
Extended lifespan: Collapsar is currently over 600 years old.
