Gavyn was the spoiled playboy prince of the alien empire which contained some twenty-four inhibited worlds.

His more mature sister, Clryssa, became Queen and due to an ancient royal custom, where only one heir may claim the throne without unrest, he was thrown out of a spaceship airlock to his death.

While Gavyn was floating in the void of outer space, a mysterious mystic named Mn'Torr retrieved him. Together they learned that Gavyn already possessed the power of the stars. Mn'Torr bestowed upon Gavyn a set of jeweled wristbands and a staff, which allowed him to channel his cosmic powers into the ability to fly and shoot bolts of energy. Gavyn kept his true identity a secret and served as a masked protector of the realm, but after the assassination of his sister, only one year into her reign,[1] he married his love, Lady Merria, and together they became the new rulers of Throneworld.

Later, his world was threaten by a massive wall of antimatter, which was consuming everything it was touching. [2] It was believed that Gavyn might have died during the crisis, however, his fate turned out far different.

It appears that Gavyn's body was converted into pure energy, which became the source of the beam of light that struck Will Payton, a later Starman, granting him his powers.[citation needed] It is currently unclear whether the two men, Gavyn and Payton, are fused into one being with shared memories, or if Payton was killed by the bolt that struck him, thus being replaced by the essence of Gavyn, with only the memories of Payton.

Recently, Gavyn was involved in the Rann-Thanagar War, defending Throneworld from Thanagarians alongside the Omega Men.[3]
