Vorsch is or was a brilliant but reviled cryptoscientist. By early M40, he had perfected a technique he dubbed photonic transubstantiation, transforming himself into a living being of light. Upon his transformation he would travel interstellar distances across the galaxy merely to proclaim his genius to all he encountered. However he was eventually captured in a prism-trap by the Kabal of the Black Sun, who used his technologies to devastate the peaceful Naiad Republic.
