Myrdir was recruited into the Yellow-Lantern Corps following the Sinestro Corps War, Sinestro remained a prisoner of the Green-Lantern Corps, sentenced to die for his countless crimes against the universe. In recognition of the tyranny he perpetrated against the Korugarian people, and the desire of the Korugarians to bring justice to the greatest villain in their history, the Guardians of the Universe agreed to transport Sinestro to stand trial on his own homeworld. Sinestro was placed in a Sciencell and turned over to Hal Jordan and John Stewart, who would lead a contingent of Green-Lanterns assigned to guard their prisoner until he reached Korugar.
Rage of The Red-Lantern CorpsEdit
Although the mission details were highly classified, the Sinestro Corps were alerted to the transport and set into motion a plan to rescue their leader. Hiding behind an asteroid field, the Sinestro Corps ambushed the Lanterns with a surprise blast of power that decapitated the Green Lantern Arx. While the villains kept the guards occupied, the Sinestro Corps Soldier of Sector 3 raced for the Sciencell with a Yellow Power-Ring meant for his master. Before Sinestro could be freed, his Corps were themselves ambushed by the Red-Lanterns who arrived to claim Sinestro for their own revenge. During the battle with the Red Lanterns the Sinestro Soldier of Sector 2332 was attacked by the Red Lantern Zilius Zox. The yellow warrior was overwhelmed by the Red Lantern's savagery and was swallowed in his massive jaws before he could defend himself. The Sinestro Corps Soldier of Sector 2332 was killed instantly by a fatal and crushing bite to his chest. The soldier's ring then took off to Sector 2332 to find a replacement who possessed the ability to instill great fear.
