Fictional character biography

Perrikus Perrikus Character Comic Vine

Perrikus first appears when accidentally freed from a prison in Asgard by the Thunder God Thor. Not knowing what has occurred, Thor departs and Perrikus joins with other entities revealed to be his brethren, the Dark Gods. With an army they invade and overrun Asgard, capturing Odin, Thor's father and the ruler of the Norse gods.

Perrikus is revealed to hate the Asgardians as over a millennium ago an Asgardian scout called Lonkarr found and investigated the city of the Dark Gods. While there, Lonkarr was attacked by Tserron - the wife of Perrikus - whom he killed in combat. Perrikus then led the Dark Gods after Lonkarr to Asgard where the two factions entered into a full-scale war. Although thwarted, Perrikus still wishes revenge against Odin by killing the now-adult Thor, and during single combat slices Thor's hammer Mjolnir in half with his own weapon. Despite this setback, Thor regroups and, with the aid of fellow immortal Hercules and the Asgardian Destroyer, defeats Perrikus and the Dark Gods.

The pair eventually battle Thor at the direction of Zarrko the Tomorrow Man, although both concede defeat when Thor severs Perrikus's right arm with the Bloodaxe. Perrikus and Adva retreat.
