(Magik II#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Silurian Guard was made up of demonforms of Lord Nightmare's realm, tasked with guarding his fortress. The Silurian Guard was lead by Captain Gleeg.

(Magik II#2 (fb)) - During an otherwise normal day in Nightmare's realm, the Silurian Guard were just settling in for the night-watch as darkness had fallen when one of the guardsmen spied something in the sky and cried out. An unnatural storm appeared which splintered the night, it's broken shards, sharp as blades ripped the Silurian Guard and it's Captain to pieces. In a matter of minutes, Nightmare's realm was overrun.

(Magik II#1 - BTS) - Nightmare's realm had come under attack by the Archenemy, an absolute force of magical evil sprung from a machine created to assemble, catalog, and codify a database of arcane lore from all sources. The Archenemy seemingly consumed Nightmare and much of his realm causing many of the demonforms to flee towards Limbo (Otherplace).

(Magik II#2 (fb) - BTS) - Learning of what had transpired, the dread Dormammu quickly made his way to Nightmare's realm where he found the decapitated captain of the Silurian Guard, Gleeg. Dormammu struck a deal with the demon and used his powers to animate it so it could tell its tale to the mistress of Limbo, Amanda Sefton.

(Magik II#2) - Arriving in Limbo (Otherplace), Dormammu revealed the disembodied head of Gleeg who then revealed what had transpired to his Silurian Guard and Nightmare's realm. After doing so he ordered Dormammu to release him from the agony of life-death.

  Gleeg was the captain of the Silurian Guard tasked with protecting Nightmare's fortress.

Like his guard, Gleeg was beheaded when the Archenemy attacked Nightmare's realm. However, before Gleeg died he was approached by the dread Dormammu and struck a deal with the devil who used his powers to keep him alive long enough to tell its tale to the mistress of Limbo, Amanda Sefton.
