Base of Operations: Orollan

First Appearance: New Warriors V#6 (August, 2014)

History: (Inhuman I#1 (fb) – BTS) – When Black Bolt unleashed the Terrigen Mists across the Earth, transforming many latent Inhumans, Lash decided to recruit the worthy and to kill the rest. He made a base for them in the remote community of Orollan, which had fallen into major disrepair.

(New Warriors V#8 (fb) - BTS) - Lash recruited Sheath, Nightfall, Jack Chain and Nocculus to join the Tribe. (New Warriors V#7 (fb) - BTS) - Hollow, Fume and Spark reached out to Nightfall in an effort to join the Tribe and she recommended they bring an Inhuman of value to Lash to earn his good favor. (New Warriors V#7) - Hollow, Fume and Spark apprehended the Inhuman Haechi and his teammate Sun Girl to Jakarta, where Nightfall met them. Lash arrived with Nocculus and Sheath. (New Warriors V#8) - Lash tried testing Haechi's powers, determining he was worthy, while Nocculus held off the New Warriors by mind-controlling civilians. Haechi refused to side with Lash, who rejected Hollow, Fuse and Spark's request to join the Tribe. Lash then had Nightfall teleport the Tribe away. (Inhuman I#3 (fb) – BTS) – Lash spent weeks gathering new Inhumans, including Mother Bones, Kacy (who grew to call him "papa") and Grove. Lash taught his Inhumans to hate and mistrust Medusa and the Inhumans of Attilan. They saw Lash lose his temper sometimes, seeing him kill some of their number during fits of rage.

(Inhuman I#4 (fb) – BTS) – Lash went to northern Minnesota and recruited Jason, a new Inhuman with rock powers, while the rest of the Inhuman cocoons there were already dead.

(Inhuman I#3) – Lash returned Jason to Orollan, which was now a city of ruins, and Lash stated that Black Bolt had been responsible for the city's destruction during a time when Lash was not present in the city. Lash introduced Jason to Mother Bones, Grove, Kacy and others then he granted Jason the name Korvostax. After putting his recruits to work restoring old homes in Orollan, Lash began meditating but then Medusa attacked with a group of Inhumans including Lineage, Gorgon, Triton and Inferno. After a long battle, Medusa choked Lash, telling him that he would no longer be killing other Inhumans or she would stop him. Medusa then took her team and left peacefully.

(Inhuman I#13) – Lash and his Tribe, including Mother Bones, Kacy and Grove, saw Medusa, Elejea, Frank McGee and Triton near Orollan and prepared for battle.

(Inhuman I#14) – Lash led the Tribe against Medusa and her people. When McGee fired light at him, Lash absorbed the light then ordered Grove and Kacy to power him up further. Absorbing all of the energy, he fired the energy back at his foes but Elejea blocked them with a light shield. Lash ordered the Tribe to power him up even more until he overwhelmed Elejea's shield then sent the Tribe after Medusa and the others, ordering the Tribe to kill them.

(Inhuman I Annual#1) – Lash heard Lineage speak telepathically to all of the Inhumans, saying it was time to seize power. Calling himself the High Priest of Orollan, Lash sent the Tribe against Medusa, McGee and Triton. Mother Bones overpowered Medusa, knocking her out as Grove lashed at McGee with a knife. As they were nearly defeated, Eldrac reached through and saved Medusa, McGee and Triton, and then sent them on to New Attilan.

(Uncanny Inhumans I#12 (fb) – BTS) – Maximus went to Orollan, where he proposed an alliance with Lash, giving him a chance to fight Medusa in a time when things for the Inhumans were tenuous.

(Uncanny Inhumans I#12) – In Switzerland, Lash gathered the Tribe, including Serrata (a new Inhuman who could generate vibrational saws to cut through rock), and he ordered Serrata and Grove to activate their powers. Stark employees at the nearby Stark office sent armored guards to respond and Mother Bones responded by fighting back at the guards. Lash had Serrata cut out a large chunk of rock then Kacy blew it high into the air, where it fell on the Stark facility and destroyed it. Lockjaw teleported in Medusa, Frank McGee, Ahura and soldiers from Ennilux. Medusa wrapped Lash in her hair as he told her he had not destroyed the Stark Tower in New York City like she'd accused him of. The Ultimates then showed up.

(Uncanny Inhumans I#13) – The Ultimates blamed Medusa for the attack and Lash, pretending to be her ally, launched the Tribe against the Ultimates. To deescalate the fight, Medusa had Lockjaw teleport Lash and the Tribe into the Triskelion along with some of the Ultimates, where they were surrounded by armed guards.

(Black Bolt I#9 (fb) - BTS) - Lash recruited Furball to join the Tribe.

(Black Bolt I#10 (fb) - BTS) - Fume was finally recruited into the Tribe. Lash then had a machine designed that could use Inhuman blood to activate Terrigenesis when the machine was properly powered. He predicted that the machine would kill millions and create more Inhumans for him to rule. He made plans to drain Black Bolt's blood to power the machine.

(Black Bolt I#9) - Lash led the Tribe (Jack Chain, Sheath, Furball) to a New York cemetery, where Black Bolt had been attending the funeral of the Absorbing Man. Lash attacked, intending to kill Black Bolt, who was there with his allies Titania and Blinky. Jack Chain apprehended Blinky and Lash teleported the child back to Orollan, daring Black Bolt to come after her.

(Black Bolt I#10) - Black Bolt and Titania attacked Orollan and easily defeated Furball and Sheath, inspiring Jack Chain to run for it. Lash held Blinky in his hand and Black Bolt surrendered then Fume knocked both Black Bolt and Titania out. Lash revealed his plans to create more NuHumans and rule humanity, Black Bolt was strapped to the machine, which induced a form of madness in him, but Black Bolt burst free of the machine and freed Titania and Blinky. They made short work of the Tribe before Black Bolt fell then Blinky attacked, manifesting the powerful Jailer.

(Black Bolt I#11) - Jailer seemingly killed Jack Chain then overloaded Lash with psychic energy. Furball and Sheath ran away toward an airship but Titania intercepted them, convincing them to join her in the ship as they rushed for help. They soon arrived in New York City but Lockjaw teleported aboard the ship and took Titania away, leaving Sheath and Furball free.
