Araki is both the Prime Minister of the intergalactic Shi'ar Imperium and the Lord Chancellor of the Empire´s ruling emperor or empress. When Araki defended the Shi'ar throne against an impending coup, the rebellion´s leader killed him. But Araki´s services had proven so valuable to the Empire that Lilandra had his body cloned by means of the Shi'ar´s advanced technology and ordered his consciousness transferred into a new body.

In the years that followed, Araki remained an easy target for adversaries of the Empire. A greater sage than fighter, Araki went down four more times. While on his fifth cloned body, Araki discovered that his Empress was possessed by Cassandra Nova and tried to intervene before her orders to the Shi'ar Imperial Guard to annihilate the X-Men could be carried out. Choosing to believe Lilandra´s repeated denials of Araki´s heretical words, the Guardsman G-Type was forced by his Empress to kill Araki.

But death mattered little to this wise old Shi'ar: After Cassandra was expelled from Lilandra´s mind, a sixth Araki arrived to help his Empress recover and return her to her people once again.

Later, Araki served Vulcan when he ascended to the thrown of Emperor of the Shi'ar empire. He as later killed, once again, by Gladiator following his use of the Shi'ar Death Commandos against the Starjammers and the death of Lilandra.

Cloned once again, this time as a female, Araki currently serves as the newly appointed Majestor, Gladiator's, advisor, despite being briefly captured and impersonated by the Raptor known as Talon.
