Korvus is a descendant of Rook'shir, a citizen of the Shi'ar Empire who, centuries ago, controlled the power of the Phoenix Force through a blade. He was ultimately defeated by the Imperial Guard, a team which defends the empire and was formed for the purpose of stopping Rook'shir.
After he was defeated, only a portion of his power remained in his blade, which could only be lifted by one of his descendants. Korvus is the last surviving descendant of Rook'shir, and because of this he was kept in prison. K'tor, a loyalist of D'ken, offered to set Korvus free provided that he would work for him. Korvus easily overpowered the X-men except for Rachel Summers, who also controls the Phoenix Force. With the help of Rachel he was able to break free from the control of K'tor. Since then, he has become a member of the Starjammers and is shown becoming more and more intimate with Rachel Summers.
