Esak was a brilliant young man who was Metron's protege. He was destined to
take Metron's place one day as cosmic explorer and master technologist when he
was injured in an accident, which damaged him both physically and mentally. His
soul and faith were embittered badly, and he soon turned against Metron and his
New Genesis allies by joining the ranks of Darkseid's elite. Orion finally
confronted Esak and killed him, but before he died, Orion, still respectful for
Esak's past self, prayed to the Source for Esak, and his face was healed before
he finally died.
