The Shaper has massive power, but he cannot actually create new worlds. He only rearranges the structure of an existing world to fit the template that has been requested by another. The alien can only create worlds if it has the dreams of another living being to use as a blueprint. These factors are often considered to be the greatest drawbacks to its powers.
It is his curse that he has a strong desire to make dreams come true, but does not have any dreams himself. So he is searching out other beings he senses have wishes he can fulfill. Only this way can he find a release for his strong desire to shape the reality.
He started existence thousands of years ago as a Cosmic Cube, created by scientist of the Skrull Empire. It was then used by the Skrull Emperor to enforce his rule over the Skrull Empire as a god-king. It subsequently developed sentience, and because of the megalomaniacal personality of the emperor imprinted on its mind, it lashed out and devastated a significant portion of the empire before it reached emotional maturity. It was at this point that it started calling itself the "Shaper of Worlds," and chose the form that it uses to this day: a male Skrull torso atop a metallic frustrum and tractor treads.
Glorian and Kubik are his protégés.
