Puratory was a normal man in a wheelchair, until he was visiting the library where Kyle Rayner was fighting some nut in a powered suit of armor. In the course of the fight, Kyle knocked him out of his chair. Feeling bad about this, after the fight, Kyle sed the ring to give the man legs made out of the Ring's power. During Underworld Unleashed, Neron approached Purgatory with the offer of more power, and all he had to do was kill Green Lantern. Kyle fought Purgatory and won. As a result though, the poor guy's soul was taken by Neron. He has not been seen since. It seems that no one will remain out of comics for long, at the very last page of GL 110, Purgatory returned to the world, where he has been and what he will do remain a mystery.
