Glacius is a character from the game franchise Killer Instinct. Glacius is one of the most consistent characters in the Killer Instinct franchise, being in all 3 games of the Killer Instinct franchise, from the original Killer Instinct until the latest 2013 Killer Instinct, where he received a drastic overhaul in design. Glacius is an alien from a distant planet, whose traits are able to control ice and moisture or water alike, or simply are able to do cryokinetic abilities. In Killer Instinct 1, Glacius is an alien whose curiosity made his space-ship crashed on Earth. However, he is then captured by Ultratech corporation and captured him in a "scientific" experiment. In Killer Instinct 2, the Glacius is a different alien, but from the same race. The KI2 Glacius comes to Earth to free other Glacius-like-aliens who are captured by Ultratech. In Killer Instinct 2013, the Killer Instinct 1 Glacius returns to find his ship's lost core and prevents Earth from misusing his race's technology. Like what explained previously, although Glacius is present in all KI games, not all "Glacius-es" are the same. The Killer Instinct 2 Glacius is the ancestor to the Killer Instinct 1 and 2013 Glacius. However, all "Glacius-es" have the same ability to do cryokinesis, transform to puddles temporarily and forming limited weapons out of their hands

In-Game Bio

Default Costume: 2013 Glacius

"This alien creature called Glacius comes from a distant planet whose inhabitants posses the ability of cryokinesis. Glacius had came to Earth in so-called special occassions, both in an accidental way or purposely. Glacius once came to Earth due to his curiosity, which made his space-ship crashed and he himself got captured by Ultratech corporation. And then a second Glacius came to Earth to free the captured Glacius and other captured members of his race. Then finally, the current and the same Glacius as the first one came to Earth to prevent the misuse of his race's technology by Earth."
