Alpha Traon is one of the original 13 Op's, thus all his portrayals are considered to be the same individual. He is generally depicted as an ancient mechanoid with a link to the great Vector Segma. Once known as A-3, he spearheaded the rebellion against the Quints, turning their 'slave brand' into a symbol of freedom. After he deactivated the Quints Dark Guardians and turned the tide of the war, the Quints were forced off the planet. And an age of peace began.
