Warlock was a member of the Technocracy collective, also known as Phalanx, an alien monarchy of unknown galactic origin. Refusing to fight his father Magus, Warlock fled the Technocracy he made his way to Earth, where he befriended and became a member of the mutant training group known as the New Mutants.
Warlock merged with his friend Douglas Ramsey (Cypher), a mutant with the ability to understand any language, many times to battle their enemies including Magus. When merged the two referred to themselves as Douglock.
This merging eventually lead to Cypher becoming infected with the Transmode Virus, which would have eventually would have driven him insane, if he had not died first.
Cypher died as the result of protecting fellow teammate Wolfsbane from the bullet of Dr. Animus. Warlock would later "die" during the X-Tinction Agenda. Warlock was buried beside his friend Cypher, with whom he would later fully merge, taking the appearance of Douglas Ramsey. Although Ramsey is dead Warlock possesses all of his memories and personality traits allowing him to be more human.
