The snarky Swedish spectre Ketil Nagel, who had been known in life as the infamous black metal vocalist Lord Morbid, and his friend Yitzy, a benevolent Yithian scientist, followed the trail from the dead world of Zetar 6 or Zecor to Earth's Dreamlands. They found themselves in Xura, a dreary and desolate realm rife with foreboding and despair.
The tall, slender ghost's long, blond hair extended to the mid-back area of his black trenchcoat. The Yithian possessed a conical body made of a rigid, rubbery material. It had two great pincers extending from the shoulder area, and two long neck stalks. One of the neck stalks terminated in a round yellow head with three eyes, small, flowerlike ears, and a multitude of hairlike tentacles. The other neck stalk terminated in a cluster of four red trumpet-like projections. The Yithian slid like a snail on the great foot at the bottom of its conical body.
