Abandoned shortly after his birth, Val Armorr was adopted by a sensei who taught him many forms of martial arts from across the galaxy, some whose origins are lost to the mists of time and space.


Mastering the marital arts, Armorr roamed the galaxy studying other hand-to-hand fighting techniques and seeking spiritual enlightenment.


Armorr is quiet and reserved, and believes the martial arts is a path to physical discipline, leading to spiritual enlightenment. Joining the Legion his experiences have strengthened his mental and physical abilities, and fostered his reputation as one of the deadliest sentients in the known galaxy as the Karate Kid.
