Pyron is an alien from the planet Hellstorm, a very distant planet. He took upon an evolution process during many eons, and became a cosmic being. Having now unlimited power, he starts to collect the finest planets in the universe, which orbit his fingers like rings. He finally discovers planet Earth, and as he falls in it 65 million years ago, he creates the army of Huitzil to extinguish all life on Earth while he takes a centuries-long slumber deep in the Atlantic Ocean to store his power and wait the right time to consume Earth. The Huitzil successfully extinguish the dinosaurs and went deep underground in Mexico, where they shut down.
Pyron finally awakes during the decade of 1980. One of the Huitzil also resume it's functions at the same time and prepares to carry it's order to extinguish life. Pyron notices the presence of the Darkstalkers, creatures from the darkness who wander our world. Seeing them as a possible threat, he makes a challenge to all creatures of the night, who sense his presence and fights each other to get to him. Pyron prepares himself by taking the form of a humanoid ghost covered in flames, not using his full power to not take the fun and the challenge. He is challenged by the vampire Demitri Maximoff, who ends defeating him and absorbing a portion of his powers. After this, and after seeing the many battles of the Darkstalkers in the demon world, Pyron accepts his defeat and decides that Earth is not worthy of being consumed by him, deciding to leave the planet and go for Andromeda next.
