    Green Lantern
    Status: Active
    Space Sector: 2689
    Sector Partner: Unknown
    Homeworld: Nirdoor
    Predecessor: Unknown
    Successor: Inapplicable


    Skirl was born in the jungle war of Nirdoor, surrounded by death. He has since become an activist for pacifism and one of Nirdoor's most vocal anti-war activists.

    Following the Guardians' of the Universe voluntary withdrawal from Oa, Sinestro escaped from his imprisonment and orchestrated a series of attacks on the Green Lantern Corps.
    Aligning with the Mad God Sector 3600, Sinestro killed half of the Klyminade Green Lanterns, attacked the Green Lantern Corps of Earth, and destroyed the newly recreated Bolovax Vik; exterminating the remains of the Lantern Kilowog’s species. Sinestro was ultimately defeated by the combined efforts of the Earth and Klyminade Lanterns and taken into custody by Lantern Katma Tui, who knocked Sinestro out with a furious fist of Oan energy. The Lantern Corps were called to Oa to debate the fate of Sinestro. Many Lanterns wanted to execute the renegade Sinestro for his numerous and barbaric crimes. During the trial of Sinestro, Skirl was a Green Lantern that felt killing was wrong, and that despite Sinestro's crimes, someone should speak out for life. Although Skirl’s views were given the proper respect, it was decided that Sinestro should be executed. Had the Lantern’s listened to Skirl they could have prevented the resulting destruction of the Central Power Battery, which contained an unknown failsafe against the killing of any Korugarian males.

    Skirl reenlisted in the Corps following its second rebirth. Skirl had lost political support back on Nirdoor upon being inducted into the Green Lantern Corps, as many Nirdooreans view the group as a universal tool of oppression. Skirl has been trying to dispel this negative image, but loses ground each time he displays his remarkable power.
