He tells them that his name is Rio Blast and he is the last of the Starband Marshalls. His world was smashed by a meteor, just as he was working in an Astro-Jail. A small chunk of the meteor hit him, and knocked him onto Eternia. He says he only attacked He-Man and Sy-Klone because he was confused. He tells them he believes that Horde Prime who attacked the Starband by sending the meteor, so he decides to stay with the heroic warriors to strike back at Horde Prime.
