History:(Dark Guard I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Leader of the Egalitern sect on the planet Eopia, Trusivor was opposed by the Technarchy, led by chairman-prime Demogog Tansteele was chair-man prime, who had led his people to devote their efforts to the art of war for 30 years.
(Dark Guard I#1 (fb) - BTS / Dark Guard I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Conflicts between the Technarchy and Egaliterns escalated to the point that each force was capable of incinerating not only just one another but their entire world, Eopia.(Dark Guard I#1 (fb) - BTS / Dark Guard I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Representing the Techno-Wizards of Earth's Mys-Tech, Gudrun Tyburn used an artificial replicant/golem of herself to establish a presence on Eopia, escalating the war between Egaliterns and Technarchy in effort to cause the planet's destruction via thermo-nuclear war.
(Dark Guard I#1 (fb) - BTS / Dark Guard I#2 (fb) - BTS / Dark Guard I#3 (fb) - BTS) <Last year (in relation to the main story; whatever a year is on Eopia)>- Mys-Tech
"smart weapon" agents Permafrost and Sunder were sent to manipulate
Trusivor and the Egaliterns, promising to help free their land from the
Technarchy threat. In reality, the goal of these smart weapons was to
precipitate the destruction of the Eopians via nuclear war.
Trusivor considered Permafrost and Sunder to be very plausible and genuine, and he was greatly impressed with their powers.
Similarly, Mys-Tech sent Collapsar to "aid" Tansteele and the Technarchy.
(Dark Guard I#3 (fb) - BTS) - As part of some "secret defense program," Sunder implanted three hundred empathic receptors deep in the planet's continental crust. These would absorb the death scream of Eopia as it perished in nuclear conflagration. Mys-Tech could then synthesize a raw, emotive force of pure death-agony to pay off Mys-Tech's debt to the Hell-lord Mephisto.
(Dark Guard I#1 - BTS / (Dark Guard I#2 (fb) - BTS) - ) - The Time Guardian gathered the Dark Guard -- Albion, Stacy Arnheim, Death's Head, Killpower, Colonel Tigon Liger, Motormouth, and Ultra Marine -- to oppose Mys-Tech's becoming a universal threat and -- per the Time Guardian's Superconductor assistant -- to slay Collapsar.(Dark Guard I#2 - BTS) - The Time Guardian's Superconductor assistant detailed the situation on Eopia and Mys-Tech's involvement.

Upon seeing the approaching Dark Guard members, Trusivor exclaimed "Atoms and stripes!"
Albedo, derived from the Latin word meaning whiteness, is the ratio of the radiation (radiant energy or luminous energy) reflected by a surface to that incident on it. I'm not sure that the Albedo Crux Cluster is a known existing anatomical structure, and I would assume this was just a sci-fi use of a scientific term.
According to space.com a cluster of stars is a galaxy if it is held
together by dark matter...there's more information on that, but it's
beyond my Freshman astronomy I took back in 1988. Feel free to Google
it for yourself, or to provide a layman's explanation for everyone else.
Other sources just note a cluster to be smaller than a galaxy, independent of the habitability of any stars in the cluster.
Profile by Snood.
Trusivor should be distinguished from:
| Located in the capital of the Egalitern bloc, the mansion was based above the blast-reinforced command bunker.
(Dark Guard I#2) - Just outside Trusivor's mansion in the capital of the Egalitern bloc, in conventional humanoid forms, Permafrost and Sunder stood by Trusivor as he addressed his people.
When members of the Dark Guard arrived, Trusivor mistook them for Technarchy assassins and directed Permafrost and Sunder to slay them.
(Dark Guard#3) - The Dark Guard eventually destroyed the Mys-Tech smart-weapons, although the battle damaged the mansion's front.
(Dark Guard#3 - BTS) - Without the Mys-Tech weapons' interference, Dark Angel was able to convince Trusivor of her associates' true mission, and he invited them into the mansion. Dark Angel and Albion joined Trusivor in his office, while Ultra-Marine went to the war-rooms in the bunker below.
(Dark Guard I#3) - In Trusivor's office, Dark Angel and Albion revealed Permafrost and Sunder's true purpose, and Albion advised that the Egalitern and Technarchy must by reconciled soon, noting that both sides must see that mutual destruction can be the only result of their present confrontation.
As Trusivor began to agree, they were interrupted by Ultra-Marine, who advised Dark Angel and Albion to come down to the war-rooms in the bunker below the mansion.
