The Jamaican born skilled metallurgist  Desmond Negril’s past is a complete mystery. He is identified as “Rastafarian” [Tribe #2] meaning he believes in the divinity of Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie.

At some point in the past he became friends with Blindspot/Murdock Elliston and was put in charge of a two million dollar private research facility, Allotech located on Strong Island. His life changed the day he was in the middle of an experimental liquid metal bonding process which would have had everyone in Washington clamoring.   His complex was attacked by agents of Europan. The perpetrators were after his most well-known discovery, Stromium. Stromium is a metal alloy known for its incredible resistance to physical stress and its unusual properties of energy dispersal.

During the ordeal he was accidentally exposed to his liquid metal chemicals. This changed the chemical composition of his body into a malleable liquid metal yet still alive form. He was rescued by Blindspot [Tribe #2].

He was present during the battle with Deus and the transformation of Rosalyn [Tribe #0 and Tribe #3]. He was also friends with fellow Tribe members, Fly Girl and Short Order
