|~ Captain Qwark's reveal in Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando|
Captain Qwark is a character in the Ratchet & Clank video game series. Originally he was a villain in the first two games but in the third onwards he became more moral, despite still being a coward.
Ratchet & Clank
Qwark was the secondary antagonist in the original Ratchet & Clank. The two traveled the galaxy trying to find the hero, thinking he'll help them save the galaxy from Drek's evil plans. They find him in his trailer in Blackwater City, and tells them to meet him at his gauntlet on Umbris. They pass the course, but are betrayed by Qwark, who reveals he is the highly-paid spokesman of Drek's new planet. Qwark attempted to kill them with his Blargian Snaggle Beast, but failed.
Drek eventually told Qwark to go to the Gemlik base and confront them personally using a Starfighter, Qwark battled Ratchet through space but was defeated and shot down on the planet Oltains. Ratchet then meets Qwark again on the heavly bombed planet, and sells him the P.D.A. under the name Steve McQwark.
Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
Qwark returns as true main antagonist in the sequel Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. After his defeat at the hands of Ratchet and Clank, Qwark tried to gain fame by selling a device called the Personal Hygenator; however, the device caused harm to its users, and Qwark was forced to pay 6,000,000,000 to the users. Qwark tried to escape to planet Pokitaru, but was arrested and placed in jail. He esacaped again by flushing himself down a toilet and wasn't seen for 6 weeks. Qwark wasn't seen until the end of the game where it's revealed that he had used his alter-ego (Steve McQwark) to help finance his big comeback by selling the Personal Hygenator. He then managed to gain control over Megacorp by pretending to be CEO Fizzwidget and locking the real
Fizzwidget in a broom closet.
Qwark then hired Ratchet and Clank to capture the "Experiment" that was stolen by Angela Cross, and after it was returned to him he then went live on Holo-Vision where tried to fix the the Experiment, now called the Protopet. However, the Helix-O-Morph he took from Angela backfired, and the Protopet turned into a giant monster and ate Qwark. The duo managed to defeat the beast, and Qwark was spat out. In the final cutscene, he is seen working at Megacorp as a test subject for the Crotchitizer. Following this, the next few games state that Qwark has a strange addiction to the Crotchitizer.
