The Orange Lantern Corps are ???????
Millennia ago, (long even for beings as ancient as the Guardians) the Guardians of the Universe went to war with the Keeper of the Orange Light, in that war their forces were nearly decimated and peace was only reached by making a pact with the Keeper of the Orange Light, and it was covered by a peace treaty with the Spider Guild. The pact stipulated that as long as the Keeper of the Orange Light kept it buried deep beneath the surface of Okaara, then the Vega system would be outside the jurisdiction of the Green Lantern Corps.
An Orange Lantern Ring is powered by avarice, or greed. The wielders of the Orange Power Rings are covered in a deeper aura than members of other Corps. According to Ganthet, "the orange light of avarice will be discovered and manipulated by a being whose greed knows no bounds". The Controllers, an off-shoot of the Oan race, were searching the Vega star-system for the orange light in order to create their own Corps. The Orange Lantern Ring grants its bearer an incredible power with two dangerous side effects: Those who are recruited into the corps are infected with constantly insatiable avarice like an infectious disease. They are incapable of thought or action other than to take whatever they want from another. The second side effect is hunger: Orange Lanterns are plagued with an unending hunger, that can never be satisfied. This hunger, however, does subside in the presence of an active Blue Lantern Power Ring. Also the lesser the members of the corps are, the more powerful the Orange Lantern Power Ring becomes: Which is why The Corps ended up being down to only one member, Larfleeze.
With the Guardians occupied with the Zamarons' experiments on the Star Sapphires, the Controllers were left to begin their search without opposition from the only two groups that could stop them. The Controllers believed they located the orange light on the planet Okaara, within the Vega star-system, a forbidden territory for the Green Lantern Corps. Without the interference of the Guardians they believed they could finally attain a power source that would allow them the means of creating an army to control the universe.
