Sadistic scientist-warden from the Negative Zone
Hawal is a small creature, but one blessed with prodigious intellect and a total lack of morals, ethics or conscience.
A geneticist of incredible ability, Commandant Hawal created the Annihilation Wave’s super-weapon, the Harvester of Sorrow. Now, he is in command of the prison planetoid UX-73, where he conducts torturous experiments on the inmates. Or at least he did, before being captured by Praxagora.
Hawal believes that other beings are nothing more than playthings – to be experimented on and discarded when they inevitably break. Nothing means more to him than surviving in order to continue his work.
