Kratryr was a member of the pirate crew of Valesh Malafect and known as the strong guy of the team. He resided with the rest of the crew in their spacecraft known as "the Desolation". When the young time-displaced X-Man Cyclops joined their team, Kratryr almost instantly took a liking to the young mutant and helped him get settled in. He even protected him from time to time when other crew-members acted out against Cyclops. Kratryr joined Cyclops in a few raids that they did together. The eventually started a friendship. This friendship was seemingly halted the moment he found out Cyclops had betrayed their team. When Cyclops and his father Corsair where captured and sold as a slave, Kratryr felt sorry for him, but also told him that he was lucky that Valesh Malafect had kept them alive, since he never did this before. When Cyclops and Corsair where suddenly released, Cyclops mistakenly thought that Kratryr had sett them free. Kratyr remained a part of the Desolation crew, even after the death of their leader Valesh Malafect.
