Viltrumites are incredibly powerful beings, with all the good superpowers written into their DNA. They are super strong, super fast, indestructible by most standards, and can fly. The Viltrumites also age more slowly the older they get and, similar to (but better than) human muscle biology, they can train themselves to get stronger, faster and more durable.
Thaedus has all of the typical vulnerabilities and allergies that afflict all Viltrumites (the bioengineered Scourge Virus, an intense allergy to the Klaxus plant, and an unusually sensitive inner ear).
Thaedus was born on Viltrum. Seeing that the Viltrumites planet conquering was tyrannical and evil, Thaedus chose to betray his race and became the first of his race to rebel against the Empire. He would slay the Emperor Argall of the Viltrum Empire and defect to parts unknown, sending the Empire into disarray. He later established the Coalition of Planets to defend the universe against the Viltrumite threat and battled them for thousands of years. Thaedus then decided he would use his own DNA as a calayst for a virus that would cause the mass genocide of the Viltrumites, though not known to him.
