Originally a factory foreman, Flame Mammoth was an early recruit into the Mavericks, serving with the terrorist organization for years. Despite his loyalty to Sigma, he never felt comfortable as part of the group, and when the organization began to fall apart he jumped shipped, serving out a term with Repliforce as penance for his crimes. Now a member of Star Force, he fights for the same goals he followed in the Coalition: equality and justice for all, now untainted by the genocidal drives of the Mavericks. Amiable and well-tempered, he hides a deep sadness for the world he helped create as part of the Mavericks, constantly haunted by what he once was and the blood on his hands.
