If a species, despite all evidence of council and logic, is intent on destroying the world for the sake of pure greed, it must be exterminated. There will be no exceptions. They enslaved me, forced me to be their hound. It's because of them that my sister is dead, and for that they will pay. For our race, for Terra... FOR MOTHRA!

Appearance

Battra Cover art for Godzilla: Ongoing issue 3

Battra has a predominately black body with very large wings that have patterns of red, black and yellow. He also has yellow horns on his head, six clawed legs, and red eyes which glow purple when firing his beam, as well as a red line which runs down his body's sides. Unlike Mothra who has fur, Battra has an armored body and also lacks antenna. At the end of his abdomen, Battra has three protections, two of which form a pincer/stinger like structure.

In his larva form Battra is mostly black but with a lot of yellow and a dark red underside. On his head is a giant yellow horn which glows when use fires a beam attack. On either side of his mouth are tusks. Battra's larval form is larger than Mothra's Larva form and has more powerful horn-like legs which are yellow, it is also physically stronger than Mothra's. Like his adult form the larva also has red eyes.

Personality

Being born from the same egg, Battra and Mothra shared a strong bond between each other. However, being the Guardian of Terra, he does not care much over the lives of humans like his sister and is more concerned over the well being of the planet. After being placed under the control of Minnett and Mallory, he behaved more like an attack dog, attacking and destroying anyone or anything the two ordered him too against his will.

Following the death of Mothra by Minnete and Mallory's orders, he began to harbor a deep hatred for humanity, which eventually led to him to come into league with SpaceGodzilla.

History

Following the Toba Extinction, the Kaiju of Earth Gigamoth laid a single egg before sacrificing her soul to the Tree of Life with the other six remaining guardian's, which eventually hatched into Mothra and Battra. Battra became known as the Guardian of Terra while his sister became the Guardian of Mortals. After the chaotic clash between King Caesar and Megalon, many of the planets second line of guardian Kaiju, including Battra, went into a state of hiding for over a thousand years. In 1961, Battra reawakened in Siberia, Russia.

Abilities
