Advanced combat techniques. Especially proficient with an ancient weapon known as a "shek". Has the ability to "castle", an act of teleportation in which he can exchange places with a being in a remote location.
Spanner was born on a planet so boring that, although it did have the formal name "Proxie", was known to many as just "Spanner's Planet". It had little else to recommend it but his father's protoplasm farm.
One day, quite by accident, he sustained injuries on the farm and was whisked away to an entirely different world. This strange new planet, Kabor, was revealed to be home to one of the universe's most ancient races. The Kaborians, it turned out, had influenced humanity at its earliest development. They were responsible for infusing humans with basic components of chivalry and honor. However, as the centuries passed from their first contact with Earth, humanity lost touch with the Kaborian teachings.
Now face-to-face with Kaborians, Spanner went through their vigorous training and became a Kaborian Knight.
Thereafter he returned to his home planet and began traveling throughout the galaxy in search of ways to use his newfound powers for good.
