In general, his mystical powers are increased by the Globe of Eternity. He was also a skilled warrior as he confronted a Sacred Dragon of K'un-Lun and killed him using a scimitar.
(Master of Kung Fu Annual#1 (fb)) - Quan-St'ar was born in K'un-Lun and was a magician. He was an important person in K'un-Lun. During an exhibition of the Dragons-Knights, one of the dragons went mad and attacked Yu-Ti. Quan-St'ar loyally defended Yu-Ti, risking to die for him three times and eventually killed the dragon. Yu-Ti ungratefully accused Quan-St'ar of the murder of a Sacred Dragon and banished Quan-St'ar from K'un-Lun.This dragon was Shou-Lao.
Quan-St'ar took refuge at S'Ahra Sharn where he used his magic powers to impress the citizens and gather henchmen. Full of hate, he started to gather an army to conquer and destroy K'un-Lun and thought to kill Iron Fist for revenge against Yu-Ti. He became the strategist and the supreme leader of the army and of the city.
Quan-St'ar took Cybelle, a beautiful woman and warrior, in his army.
(Master of Kung Fu Annual#1) - Using his magic powers,
Quan-St'ar reached London through the dimensions because Daniel Rand was there.
A "bobby" tried to stop Quan-St'ar thinking he was a thief (mistake
a sorcerer for a thief? sheesh! What else? Mistake an elf for a dwarf?) but Quan-St'ar killed him. The
sorcerer summoned an army of warriors from S'Ahra Sharn and sent them against
Iron Fist and Shang-Chi, but the two masters of martial arts beat the
assassins. Immediately after, he approached the two and convinced them that K'un-Lun needed their help against S'Ahra Sharn evil army. Then he transported
everybody to S'Ahra Sharn, crossing strange in-dimensions and a portal of
Quan-St'ar had Cybelle trick Iron Fist and Shang-Chi and had the Captain of the guardsmen, Shai-Tahn, capture the two. Five days later Quan-St'ar and Cybelle visited Iron Fist and Shang-Chi in the prison and unveiled some of his plans and stated that Cybelle will become his queen.
(Master of Kung Fu Annual#1- BTS) - Using the Globe of Eternity, Quan-St'ar watched Cybelle helping the two warriors to flee from the prison and attack his tower.
(Master of Kung Fu Annual#1) - The two warriors reached the sorcerer at the top of his tower. Drawing power off the Globe, the source of his powers, Quan-St'ar threw magic blasts at the pair. Iron Fist managed to deflect the arcane death using his "Iron Fist," while Shang-Chi approached the Globe. Almost in same moment, Iron Fist hit Quan-St'ar and Shang-Chi smashed the Globe. The sorcerer fell in the path of evil sprung from the shattered Globe, and both the globe and he were consumed and disappeared.

The city of S'Ahra Sharn is the twin (but evil) city of K'un-Lun. As K'un-Lun, also S'Ahra Sharn grants the immortality to their inhabitants. The most part of his inhabitants are thieves, scoundrels, mob-enforcers, assassins, and brawlers. It seems that all the citizens take a weapon with them, and some of them have mounts which seem to be unicorns. The city has a corps of guardsmen led by Shai-Tahn. Quan-St'ar wasn't the only magic-user there. After Quan-St'ar defeat, Cybelle became the queen of the city.
--Master of Kung Fu Annual#1
The Globe of Eternity
The Globe of Eternity was the source of Quan-St'ar mystic powers. It is unclear if he used the Globe when he was in K'un-Lun or if he found it later. Probably the Globe was a high amplifier of Quan-St'ar power. The globe contained evil faces and forces, but it wasn't so durable as Shang-Chi broke it with a single hit. After shattered it consumed itself and nothing remained of it.
--Master of Kung Fu Annual#1
Cybelle was a skilled warrior and strategist. Cybelle complied
Quan-St'ar's plans, but secretly she was a spy and gathered a her own army of
followers as strong as Quan-St'ar's. Cybelle sent many of her warriors between
the army who attacked Shang-Chi and Iron Fist in London, probably ordering them
to not harm the two.
Following Quan-St'ar instructions, she met Iron Fist and Shang-Chi at an Inn, the Den of Last Despair, where she started a brawl and let Shai-Tahn and his guardsmen capture her. The soldier, threatening to kill Cybelle, obliged Iron Fist and Shang-Chi to surrender and to be imprisoned. Quan-St'ar complimented her on her work.
Five days later she and Quan-St'ar visited the two warriors in prison. That night she helped them to escape, explaining to them her intentions and took them to the sorcerer's tower. She explained that the balance between evil and good must be kept, and that she and her group were the good counterpart of the evil one in S'Ahra Sharn.
At the tower her warriors and she defeated Quan-St'ar's guardsmen, but all her forces would have been powerless against the sorcerer if he could have used the Globe of Eternity.
After Quan-St'ar death she became queen of S'Ahra Sharn queen.
