Lotus was assigned to kill Aria, the empress before Cygnus. In turn, Lotus was fatally injured by a vengeful Phantom, who had fallen in-love with Aria. Lotus was then placed into stasis located deep within Verne Mine, although his soul is separated from his body and can possess other people.
In the present day, Phantom encounters Lotus's ghost and he is found trying to erase the Heroes' existence from history, as well as possessing Wiz the Librarian and Mu Young to attack Phantom. Later, Phantom finds Lotus' body inside a large tank at the power station in the Black Wings' base and attempts to finalize his revenge once and for all, but Lotus immediately possesses him afterward, mocking how Phantom had fallen into his trap and states the strength of his possession ability is based on the distance from his body. Lotus then takes Phantom's body to Ereve in an attempt to assassinate Cygnus, but Aria's spirit appears momentarily and chases Lotus away. Before Aria disappears, she tells her lover not to continue his revenge.
Gelimer eventually came up with a solution to revive Lotus from his state of stasis. However, Lotus remains silent to Orchid's delight; Gelimer reveals to have disabled his brain, leaving only his body and power functional to serve as the scientist's tool. Under Gelimer's command, he attacks his sister in a frenzy and leaves her for dead, though she was picked up by the Resistance.
