abstract
  • Parallax is a demonic parasitic entity dating back to the dawn of time. This parasite was the sentient embodiment of fear, traveling from world to world and causing entire civilizations to destroy themselves out of paranoia. According to the Agent Orange storyline of the Green Lantern series before the Blackest Night event, Parallax was sealed inside a box on Maltus, the homeworld of the beings that eventually evolved into the Guardians of the Universe. Larfleeze and a few other aliens planned to make the biggest heist the universe has ever seen and raided Maltus. From the planet, they grabbed the box, which was worth an entire star system, and an old map that lead them to the Orange light, which was the Orange Power Battery, fueled by avarice. When Larfleeze and his companions reached Okaara and found the symbol of the Orange light, they fought for control of the Battery. The Guardians and their Manhunter servants attacked the palace. Many Manhunters and Guardians were killed in the battle, as well as one of the claimers to the Orange light. The battle ended with the Guardians making a deal, that they give the box back to them and that they will let one of them have the orange light and they will never enter the Vega system (the system that holds Okaara), ever. Apparently, after this, the Guardians imprisoned Parallax inside the Green Central Power Battery. The Guardians of the Universe imprisoned Parallax within the Central Power Battery on Oa using fear's opposite energy, willpower. Parallax had lain dormant for billions of years, its true nature hidden by the Guardians to prevent anyone from trying to free it. Being yellow in color, Parallax eventually came to be referred to as simply "the yellow impurity." This was the reason why the rings were useless against the color yellow: Parallax weakened its power over the corresponding spectrum; hence only someone with the willpower to overcome great fear could master the power ring. Thus, when recruiting new Green Lanterns the Guardians were careful to look for recruits that were largely fearless. When the renegade Sinestro was later imprisoned in the Power Battery himself, his Qwardian yellow power ring tapped into Parallax's power and awakened it.
