BACKGROUND from the comic books:
Xudarians are a bird race who lack imperialistic tendencies. Though a tranquil and benevolent society, they will defend their planet when required. This peaceful Avian race focuses their efforts on the arts and sciences instead of war which is the reason for their highly advanced civilization.
Tomar-Re is one of the orange-skinned Xudarians and the Green Lantern of sector 2813. His nature to examine things has led him to thoroughly study the sacred Book of Oa. The immortal Guardians of the Universe have recognized this and appointed him archivist and protector of the Book.
Tomar-Re had developed a close friendship with the neighboring sector 2814's Green Lantern, Abin Sur. They constantly called upon each other for assistance in policing their turf. Yet to request help from Abin's replacement Hal Jordan, Tomar-Re remains undecided on the new Lantern.
