• 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.
