The Youngest member of the royal family of Tamaran, Ryand'r experienced at a young age the hardships of the Citadel War - including the betrayal of his people by his sister Komand'r (Blackfire) to their enemies and the enslavement of his other sister Koriand'r (Starfire III).

Many years later Ryand'r was reunited with Koriand'r after she escaped slavery and joined the Teen Titans. With the help of the Omega Men, the Teen Titans helped repel the Citadel forces from Tamaran and defeat Blackfire.

Recruited by the Omega Men, Ryand'r was captured and experimented on by the Psions, which triggered an ability to great amounts of heat energy into his hands.

It wasn't until a theologically fascist group of Darkstars, following the edicts of Lady Styx, brutally invaded Tamaran that Ryand'r came into contact with one of the four pieces of creation and his abilities evolved beyond those of his siblings transforming him into Darkfire.
