- I've never cared much for organized government. Or organized religion for that matter, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, my point is, when I found out my dad was the Emperor of the Shi'ar Empire everything I thought I knew about my life came crashing down. Much like the Berlin Wall in in 1989, man Earth history really got fascinating after I left. I have so much to catch up on. What was I talking about?

J'Son Neramani was the noble Emperor of the spacefaring Shi'ar Empire, who one day found his ship shot down by the Badoon, and crash landed on Earth. He landed in the backyard of a young woman named Meredith Quill's farm in Missouri. J'Son and Meredith soon fell in love as he tried to repair his ship. Eventually, he impregnated Meredith, and promised to come back for his child after he finished his people's war with the Badoon.
Peter was then raised by his single mother, who exposed him to all of her favorite songs, and taught him to be compassionate. However, unbeknownst to Peter, the Shi'ar assassin Warbird was sent back to the Earth to kill Meredith. She was successful, but was followed by a Badoon fleet, which ended up kidnapping both her and an eleven-year-old Peter, taking him away from the Earth. The Badoon had planned to sell Peter into slavery, but before they got the chance their ship was raided by the group of space pirates, the Ravagers.
The Ravagers' leader, Yondu, saw how scared Peter was, and was reminded of himself as a child when his own parents sold him into slavery. Yondu took Peter under his wing and raised him to take care of himself as a Ravager. He would later choose the name "Star-Lord", as his mother use to call him that, saying that he was destined to rule the stars.
After learning how to take care of himself, Peter bought a ship and named it the Milano, after his childhood crush Alyssa Milano. He would later end up forming something of his own crew, consisting of the two man criminal mastermind duo Rocket Raccoon and Groot, as well as the Dakkamite with a vengeance against the Kree Empire, Drax the Destroyer.
Calling themselves the "Guardians of the Galaxy", the four of them pulled off many heists and raids against their enemies. However, they later found themselves wrapped up in something much bigger than they intended when they accepted a bounty from a man named Corvus Glaive to capture a fugitive named Gamora. After they tracked her down and discovered that she was the adopted daughter of the Mad Titan Thanos, they decided they didn't want to get involved.
But Gamora was right when she told them they were already involved. Rocket and Drax both thought their only option was to hand her back over, but Peter convinced them that despite the bad things they do, they're not on Thanos's level, and he agreed to protect Gamora even if his team didn't. However, after Groot sided with him, Rocket reluctantly went along, and Drax agreed after being promised a chance to go after one of Thanos's lackeys, Ronan the Accuser. After taking in Gamora, the Guardians found themselves doing more and more noble things across the galaxy, and eventually Peter came to enjoy the feeling of being a hero, and so did Gamora. They bonded over this and their childhood traumas and eventually fell in love.
Over time the Guardians would make allies across the universe, including the Avengers and the Nova Corps, and they even expanded their membership to include the likes of Mantis, Beta Ray Bill, Adam Warlock, and more. Peter would eventually hear of the tale of the Shi'ar Empire's missing heir, and became curious because of the similarities to the stories his mother told him as a child.
He would later meet J'Son, who had believed Peter to either be dead or lost in the shuffle of the Badoon slave trade. He was overjoyed to finally meet his son, and Peter felt the same about his father. He didn't love being the heir to one of the galaxy's most influential Empires, but even so, tried to integrate himself into his family. This put a strain on his relationship with the Guardians, who had always considered themselves a family. But after some time and a lot of denial, Peter came to see that his father was an oppressive dictator, and he wanted no part in his regime. He betrayed him and rejoined the Guardians in an attempt to topple the infrastructure of the Shi'ar to spite his father.
