Drill Sergeant is part of a long forgotten ancient race called the Arkeyans. This was a very powerful civilization, which had disappeared in the sands of time, until a chance collision with Terrafin lead to Drill Sergeant firing up again. He then decided to join Terrafin, and become a Skylander, fighting against evil in the Skylands.
