History: (Daredevil I#72 (fb) – BTS) – A mysterious shadowy man in a mystic realm of crystal, Quothar, who worshiped "the Seven," stole the Sacred Krill Statue, the bedrock symbol of his religion, then escaped through the Crysto-Mirror, a portal to other dimensions. Quothar began robbing a New York City museum and committing several other robberies within, frustrating museum director Normal Daniels. Tagak the Leopard Lord was summoned to go after Quothar, passing through a Crysto-Mirror.
(Daredevil I#72 (fb)) – Tagak the Leopard Lord and his familiar, Opar, arrived in New York City to search for Quothar, startling civilians including Harry and Irene. Daredevil briefly sparred with him.
(Daredevil I#72) – Quothar snuck silently in the shadows and stole an expensive Rembrandt painting, accidentally setting off an alarm. Police, including Connors and Willis, arrived shining spotlights but they could only see the shadowy figure escaping agilely across the rooftops. Daredevil investigated, having recently met Tagak, and he found a warehouse containing a mirror that seemed to be a portal to another realm. Tagak and Opar teamed up with Daredevil and he learned that they shared a mental bond, and that Tagak saw through Opar's eyes. Opar tracked Quothar through the city but the police shot and killed the leopard then Daniels shot Tagak, thinking him the villain. Daredevil easily defeated Quothar then Tagak returned with his captive to their world through the mirror.
Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Gene Colan and Syd Shores.
Quothar was never really clearly shown or explored. His powers, motivations and history remained very mysterious. Quothar may have been from Tagak's realm or another realm entirely.
Tagak later came back for a brief adventure in Defenders (see his profile) but Quothar presumably is in his dimension's version of jail. And…presumably the stolen Rembrandt was returned? And the Sacred Krill Statue?
color was never determined, as he was never properly seen in such a way
that his eye color was shown. He did not appear to possess any hair but
it was unclear whether he was wearing a costume or if his look was
actually his extradimensional body itself. - Proto-Man
Profile by Chadman.
Quothar has no known connections to:
(Daredevil I#72) – When a shadowy figure (Quothar) broke into a museum to steal a 3 million dollar Rembrandt, police responded, including Connors (new to the force) and Willis (who fired off a warning shot).
(Daredevil I#72 (fb) – BTS) – When the extra-dimensional Quothar began robbing a New York City museum, its museum director, Norman Daniels, grew frustrated.
(Daredevil I#72) – After losing a Rembrandt painting to Quothar, Daniels was furious and he demanded that Daredevil take down the suspected robber, Tagak the Leopard Lord. Later, the police shot and killed Opar while Daniels fired on Tagak then Daredevil revealed the real culprit, Quothar.
Harry & Irene
(Daredevil I#72 (fb)) – Harry and Irene were among a group of civilians startled to see Tagak the Leopard Lord and his leopard, Opar.
