When our Roman masters have use for us, they send us to die in their wars. When they have no use for us, they slaughter us themselves. Meanwhile, our children starve.
Our women are made slaves No more. Today, with our families at our backs, we defend these fields as if they were our own.
We raise our swords, and we tell the enemy: No more. For your fathers and mothers, fight. For your sons and daughters, fight. If you tire or your courage falters, remember all that these creatures have taken from us.
Let your rage lift you up. If we surrender, we resign ourselves to be slaves forever. Tomorrow, we live or die as free men. I do not command others to follow me.
Commandeering a Vine ship, Aric mounted a one-man invasion of the alien race's homeworld, Loam, toppling the empire and freeing thousands in the process, including a population of enslaved Visigoths descended from Aric's own people.
Returning to Earth with his new kinsmen in tow, Aric decided to reestablish an ancestral Visigoth homeland in its present-day location within Romania, a decision that quickly drew the ire of the neighboring Russian government.
After warding off a series of coordinated military strikes, Aric was faced with his greatest threat yet, the super-team known as Unity. Aric's defense of Dacia did not go to plan.
In exchange for asylum for him and his people, Aric, now reunited with the X-O Manowar armor, works as an agent of M. According to legend, the sentient X-O Manowar armor known as Shanhara grew from a secret plant eons ago on the alien empire's home world of Loa.
During the Vine's persecution at the hands of a mysterious race known as the Torment, it bonded with its first Vine Host, who went on to use its might to single-handedly repel the invasion force and win freedom for his people.
The armor is living, composed of organics and exotic metals—a mutualistic symbiote, bonded to its host. For centuries, the Vine high priests searched for a wearer that could bear the power of Shanhara, but all such candidates were killed in the process.
When Aric of Dacia attempted to escape the Vine captivity, he bonded with Shanhara as a last resort and was deemed worthy. Aric and Shanhara share a unique relationship—one that continues even when they are separated.
Shanhara can translate foreign and alien languages, tap into a world's historical and geographical records, interface with complex forms of technology, and even heal life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
Even though the bond between Aric and the armor is strong, it can be severed. Recently, the Harbinger Foundation teletechnopath Livewire was able to override the armor's connection to Aric and wear Shanhara for a limited period.
Despite its impact on earthly affairs, the armor's true origin and purpose remain a mystery—one that the beings known as the Armor Hunters will soon expose.
As a young boy, Aric witnessed the slaughter of his parents at the hands of Roman soldiers. Henceforth, he dedicated himself to destroying the Roman oppressors, with the help of his Uncle, Alaric I.
Some years later, Aric took a Celtic slave , Deidre, to be his consort. He grew to love her, and worshipped her god, Lugh. One evening, he saw demons attacking members of his tribe.
Aric attacked them, but was quickly subdued and taken aboard their alien spacecraft. For the next seven years, Aric was held prisoner in the slave pens of the spacecraft.
At a refuelling station several light years from Earth , he befriended a man known as the "Map Giver," who looked similar to Elvis Presley.
The "Map Giver" used a discarded bone shard to carve a map into Aric's palm that would lead him to the alien's armory.
Aric fought his way to the X-O Manowar class armor and donned the control ring. It later became clear that the "manufacturing" process of the X-O Manowar armor, which not only self-repaired, but also reproduced, involved the absorption of a sentient intelligence that then became the armor's own sentience.
With this living armor he was able to escape from the alien ship and return to Earth. Due to time dilation , as Aric had been traveling at the speed of light , although only a few years had passed on board, sixteen centuries had passed on Earth.
Aric thus found himself in the unfamiliar world of the 20th century. At first, Aric struggled to adjust to lateth-century Earth.
