Bio: The planet Viltrum is home to a race of extremely powerful humanoids dedicated to forceful expansion of its galactic empire. The Viltrumites sealed their commitment to interstellar conquest by culling the weak from their own race in a series of battles that killed half the planet's population. The Viltrumites then explored the galaxy, seeking out races sufficiently developed to contribute to the Viltrum Empire but not strong enough to repel invasions. Selected planets were given a choice: become vassals to the Empire in exchange for technology that would improve their quality of life or be utterly destroyed. The program was so successful that some of the servitor races even added their armies to the Viltrumite effort, conquering lesser planets and freeing up the Viltrumite explorers of the World Conquering Committee to focus on the most challenging opponents. The Viltrumite that would one day be known on Earth as Nolan Grayson was born during this later era expansion. He was one of their best agents and brought many worlds into the Viltrum Empire's fold. He did so well that he was made commander of an entire division of Viltrumite warriors, leading them in one conquest after another. Eventually, the Viltrum Empire had grown so large that almost all of its forces were needed simply to police its space. Expansion slowed almost to a halt. The Viltrumites would not give up conquest entirely, so they chose more subtle means suitable for individual agents. The highest ranking and most trusted officers would each be assigned a single world. They would live there for five hundred years, studying the planet, learning its people's weaknesses, and preparing it for Viltrumite rule.
