Vorath was the former Minister of Science of the planet Nebulos. A Zarak loyalist, Vorath was expelled from his office when Galen uncovered his involvement in illegal medical experiments on live subjects. Seeking revenge, Vorath gained the chance to do so and continue his experiments with the arrival of Transformers and the creation of the Headmasters, when he agreed to binary-bond to Mindwipe.
While enjoying the excitement of his new life as a Headmaster, Vorath is a scientist to the core, and the more secular-minded Nebulan's outlook often causes conflict with his more mystical-minded partner.
Marvel Comics continuity
Serving as Lord Zarak's technical advisor, a role he continued even while acting as Mindwipe's head, Vorath reverse-engineered the Headmaster and Targetmaster technologies for the Decepticon forces on Nebulos and assisted in the creation of Pretenders on Earth.

Vorath was among several Hive members who were rebuilt as Headmasters in order to match the firepower of the Hive's rivals and their new Autobot allies. Vorath complained about being required to merge with Mindwipe, feeling that as a prestigious scientist, he deserved better than being partnered with a night-stalking bat. But Mindwipe hypnotized Vorath, who was then powerless to resist the binary-bonding process and called Mindwipe "Master" afterwards.
- Mindwipe with Vorath (Headmaster, 1987)
- Vorath transforms from an armored humanoid into a robot head. Though he only came with his partner, Mindwipe, in head mode, he is compatible with any other Headmaster body. On the larger Headmasters, he gives three of Mindwipe's Tech Spec stats in their display window, but the smaller ones still display their normal heads' stats due to their construction.
