Ogord is a highly respected and authoritative member of the Ravagers. He was instrumental in freeing Yondu Udonta from Kree slavery when he was younger, and recruited him into the Ravagers, but also exiled him after he found Udonta had been trafficking the Celestial Ego's children back to him, alien hybrids that he needed for his Expansion, but failed to contain his DNA, so killed each of them. When Udonta's conscious finally got the better of him, he kept the last child, Peter Quill, under his protection, who became Star-Lord. Udonta continued to act as a Ravager, but was never officially accepted back into the ranks.
When Ogord found out that Udonta had died saving Quill from Ego's world as it exploded, Ogord was moved by this display, and paid his respects at Udonta's funeral by sounding the Horns of Freedom, a fireworks-like display in space. Udonta's act of heroism brought back together Ogord with with several other estranged captains of Ravager clans, including his wife, Aleta, Charlie-27, Krugarr, and Mainframe, also joined by Ogord's first officer, Martinex, who decided to go back on heists together.
