Here he is... Ch'rell, Torrinon, Kako Naso, Duke Acureds, Oroku Saki... THE ONE TRUE SHREDDER!
Obviously modeled mostly from the 2003 4KidsTV/Funimation Shredder. After being defeated by the turtles and their allies several times, he is eventually revealed to be an Utrom in a mechanical bio-suit. The story of Ch'rell goes back a millenia. He prides himself on being the most evil being in the galexy with a history of waging wars, enslaving races and erradicating sentient life from entire systems. He's a monster with one, hardwired goal... universal domination. According to the 2003 backstory, he was stranded on Earth hundreds of years ago in Feudal Japan along with several other Utroms following a crash landing of their prisoner transport ship. He escaped and took up the mantle of an ancient demon called The Shredder to strike fear in hearts of the local species. There, he founded the Foot Clan - and evil group of ninja theives - and began building his empire under the disguise of Oroku Saki.
Our story doesn't end there... Through the twisted hands of fate, Ch'rell would cross paths with a talented young ninja named Hamato Yoshi... whose name you might recognise. It was through their interaction that led the other Utroms to flee to New York, thus setting in motion the mutation and entire creation of the turtles.
That series is sooo good... yes, it was made for kids, but it tells such a great story. Give it a try sometime.
