The Eminence of Blades was a member of Stormwatch.

The origins of Harry Tanner's abilities are unknown. He joined Stormwatch and served with them for many years. His power set meant that he constantly kept secrets from his teammates.

However, while investigating the aftermath of the blowing of a mysterious horn, Tanner encountered a worm-creature who claimed that the horn was the precursor of a great disaster which would claim the Earth. It was the worm's job to strengthen endangered worlds. To do its job, it needed a host, and it took Tanner for that purpose.

As a host, Tanner betrayed his teammates and kidnapped Adele Benson.
