A native of the Thoraxian Confederacy, the scientist known as Krik serves aboard the research vessel Tsunami with Professor Tipanius Terpis and Felizia of Felinas-3. Though a close knit crew, Krik and Felizia spend a lot of time arguing with each other.
The threesome spent many years exploring space, especially Space Sector 2814. In the early 21st Century, the crew of the Tsumani encountered the phenomenon called the Blind. It had destroyed six star systems in 2814 when Terpis contacted Green Lantern Kyle Rayner on Oa.

They met the Green Lantern in the remains of the Mellifara system. After one of a series of ongoing disagreements with Commander Ashari of C.E.M.A. (the Cosmic Emergency Management Agency), the Tsunami and its crew went with the Green Lantern to Earth, as its sun was now threatened by the Blind.

Krik doubted the Green Lantern could stop the Blind, even without the interference of Shiro Nova, a bounty hunter working for the Black Circle. The ring wielder proved Krik wrong, escaping from the feared bounty hunter and turning his attention back to the Blind. Green Lantern turned the Blind’s own temporal acceleration process against itself and absorbed the residual energy into the ring. Earth, the Sun, and the rest of its solar system were saved.

The crew of the Tsunami planned to make their way back to Sector 734 when they stopped at an outpost for supplies. Unfortunately, for Professor Tipanius Terpis, he had mentioned how he had helped Green Lantern defeat the Blind and in doing so caught the attention of Shiro Nova.

While Shiro Nova would eventually catch up to Green Lantern, the fate of Professor Tipanius Terpis, Felizia, and Krik has yet to be revealed.
