Gora is old English version's name.
When an incident that shook up the entire church body, Ham heard that the Black Chapter inspectors are coming. The Quanx solution Ham's come up with is to eat up all the evidence. Unfortunately, Ham had no idea that the Black Chapter sent in a priest with an unexpected ability.
In (24), he's a rookie Black Chapter agent, who could read the history of objects or space. But Edel's uncle, Ham, was an EX-Black Chapter. Actually, Ham's real name is Balak and, Balak is one of the three infamous mad dogs of the church body. Through him, Balak saw 2 things. One, the things Edel had done, and two, the things that were done to Edel. Next, Edel got sent off to the Bureau of Internal Investigations.
2 weeks later, Internal Affairs, He's interrogates to Edel. Balak made the request to testify as his guardian, but for this case, it's not going to apply so Balak didn't need to come in person. Balak tells he have something to share with him, and it's about what happened on planet Toshka 5 years ago. He sees Balak's spicy past. And Balak annoys him by his memory. Captain says to horned nose that this be the chance for him to learn about Balak. Then Balak tells just tell he saw a Guardian priest just doing his job, heroically dashing into the scene to save a Deva's life as is.
He reads Nell's memories and shares them to horned nose. And he asks if Nell would drink water. Nell can't leave because she doesn't want her brothers off the aid. But they can't leave Nell alone on planet Jato. Bureau of Admin says to horned nose that he can bring her here on his ship if it's so urgent. In the ship, horned nose is shout out of anger that picking up abandoned Devas isn't part of their jop description.
3 days later, Balak, horned nose, him are arrives at Mayork. There's a battleship in advance. They're mercenaries hired by the Tahpenes royalties to find someone, because they're fighting for the throne. Balak sprays sensors at the entrance. When Balak entered the ship to eat ramyun, he says to horned nose that Balak is a returning old-timer, so he thinks he's Balak's superior. After eating ramyun, he spits saliva to Balak's coffee. Then Balak sees Edel through a sensor and lost in thought then Balak asks when does the furnace fire up next. He tells they should get Edel out right away and in 3 weeks, looks like it'll be during the week of Mother Madonna's birthday. Balak tells even if they take Edel back now Edel will only go back inside, so Balak has to experience all fo Edel suicidal in futile attempts go down in flames first-hand. And Balak tells if Edel ends up dying inside, that is Edel's will, and also Mother Madonna's. Balak tells Balak will ask general Gatsu himself to put a hold on Edel's arrest for now, so they're returning to the chapter. Balak drinks coffee and then looks at the cup and he notices something.
In 12. A.E. (3), Skellion says to Ferdo that he's heading back as his mission is almost complete and he works for the Black Chapter. Then Skellion tells he's the sender of the red package and it holds Ferdo's past inside it. Ferdo opened the red package and he's surprised to finds his mask. Skellion reveals his identity to Mr. Tear, the Ripping Thunder. Skellion's identity is Korah the Cue-Ball, the Black Chapter's finest.
In (24), he can read the history of objects or space. He sees the things Edel had done, and the things that were done to Edel. In (25), he reads Edel and Balak's past, and in (37), he reads Nell's past. So Skellion knows Edel, Balak, Nell's past. In (11), he can't read the memory of released Edel. So Skellion tells vaguely of Edel's actions.
There's also limited foreshadow of new English version. The old English version, Balak is calls to him that he's the Baldy (Korean: Bead head), but new English version, he calls Cue-Ball. At this time, Skellion and Ferdo are playing pool.
Mr. Tear thinks he's suddenly nauseous and touches Ferdo's back. And he goes to the restroom. He tells the beer Ferdo drank contains a liquid bomb that reacts to sounds, and the bomb will go off when a triggering sentence is read aloud. And he shows billiard ball 5 and tells he's just using the same trick Ferdo used to beat him in the game. Mr. Tear asks it's Balak who's behind this. He tells Mr. Tear is good at acting and reads the triggering sentence. "Once a target, forever a target. The Balak's way." Mr. Tear is killed because of the bomb. He reports to director Balak by network. He tells Edel is killing time running a few errands at here and there. Balak orders return to base.
Quanx Ability Edit
- "Woah! you're as spicy as the legend says you're."
- "My my my, you still don't know who I am? (Who could tell Edel's story as if Edel himself was telling the story?) It's me, Korah the Cue-Ball, the Black Chapter's finest!
- "Once a target, forever a target. The Balak's way."
- The name Korah refers to the biblical character Korah. And the word Korah is ancient Hebrew קֹרַח origin. It means "baldness" or "ice", "hall", "frost". He has the same name as Gora (고라, Gora), whose are lives in forest air on Carlburn and they reflect UV lights. So, in the Volume, Gora's name changed to Umora.
