The Evil Renegade was an enigmatic rogue member of the Great Houses who left the Homeworld centuries before the start of the War. He often travelled with human pets, notably Chris Cwej. According to Cwej, he chose to call himself the Evil Renegade and kidnapped his companions, but it is possible that Cwej's memory had been altered when he began working for the Great Houses.
At one point, the Renegade decided to start a one-man war against the Gods. He succeeded in destroying many of the Gods' bases, before finally being defeated. Before fleeing from the Gods, he stole a bottle universe which he kept within the trophy room of his timeship. (Dead Romance)
