Penultimate Savior first appeared during Flame Wars VI, as Looniverse-A2 was merging with several other universes. A member of his timeline's Saviors of the Net, he found himself imprisoned by the forces of the Mirror Looniverse's Ultimate Emperor, along with Manga Girl III, Ultimate Mercenary, and several of UM's universal counterparts. After the reveal that he and MG were UM's children, he helped them escape the Evil LNH, but separated from UM and Masterplan Lad in the confusion.
He returned alongside his fellow Saviors in Just Another Multi-Writer Cascade That Will Probably Never Have an Ending. In his future, Usenet was dead, as, seemingly, was his sister. The Saviors traveled to Looniverse-A, convinced they had to destroy it in order to prevent the rifts that devastated his world from spreading. When Masterplan Lad showed up with another idea, Penultimate Savior relented, but just when it looked like they might succeed, he was sucked into the rifts themselves...
...and after that success was reached, the rifts vanished, and he ended up back in his home time. His sister turned out to have merged with cosmic power, becoming Suzaku, and restored the life-force of the planet before going off to fight the Crossover Queen. Things were better, if far from perfect, and he dedicated himself to rebuilding.
At some point, he seems to have had a relationship with Killswitch.
Originally, sonorous and serene in the manner of cosmic characters. After the destruction of his homeworld, however, he turned more towards the angsty direction. With his sister, he tends to be more casual, friendly, and chatty.
