General Val Morando is the main antagonist of 3 Below.
Morando is a power-hungry dictator who wants nothing more than to destroy and dominate everything and everyone in his path, especially the Akiridion royal family. He also shows no care for the Akiridion residents and ignores their protests, even eliminating any who pray for House Tarron's safety.
He doesn't really seem to care much about his henchmen, as he didn't even seem to be concerned that the bounty hunters he sent perished and decided to go after the Tarron's himself.
Morando is also very manipulative and persuasive, using his knowledge of Vex to coerce him into helping to lower the planetary shield, allowing Morando to infiltrate the coronation and usurp the throne.
Powers & Abilities
As an Akiridion, he is shown stronger than a normal human, being able to degenerate one of his solders with nothing but his fighting grip, and even crush his life core with his bare hand. His fighting style is unknown.
Morando usurped the throne of Akiridion 5 from Fialkov and Coranda. He had no qualms on shooting them and stealing their life cores.
As the exiled heirs to the throne, they pose a threat to the legitimacy of Morando's rule. Morando most likely sees Aja as more of a threat than Krel, possibly due to her bounty being higher and that she's training to be a warrior princess.
Morando and Vex had an alliance until the Queen and King got hurt when he got the young princelings to safety.
Omen was a blank that he programmed to stop the resistance but then sent to Earth to stall Aja and Kel as he went to steal the Queen and King's cores.
