Raum was a fallen angel, who, inspired by the acts of Lucifer, rebelled against Heaven, without much success.[1]

In his rebellion, he killed the angel Israfel, tore his heart out, and cut it into strings, to make a lyre, who gave it to his servant, Semyaza, to lure people into suicide in an attempt to reach heaven.

Since his failed coup, he kept the souls from the suicides in a version of Hell that he made, so he could attain strength consuming the souls.

While searching for souls, he found Freak, from the Doom Patrol, and tried to make her commit suicide[2]. He later was confronted for this by the team, and defeated.
