Prince Wayfinder was the ruler and ultimately the last survivor of the human-like alien race known as the Ithacons.

Fleeing another alien race, the Haamin, Prince Wayfinder led the last remaining survivors of his race to Earth. They arrived in around 1 million B.C. Wayfinder's ship was the "Star-Seed." It was piloted by his ally Alkinoos.

Wayfinder and his people worshipped the Sword in the Star, which was later transformed into the Enigma Force.

On Earth, Wayfinder established a city in what would become known in modern times as the Indus Valley (or Bahawalpur) in India.

Wayfinder was later imbued with power from the Sword in the Star (or Enigma Force), and he became the first Time Traveller. With the Sword in the Star, Prince Wayfinder created the Microverse as a place for his people to escape from Whirldemons who were slaughtering his race.

Ultimately the Haamin killed all Ithacons except for Wayfinder.

Wayfinder's ultimate fate is unknown. But the Tomb of the Wayfinder exists in Deadzone. It is an important place in Microvese religion and cosmogony. In modern times, the Engima Force was channeled through the statue of Wayfinder that stands on the Tomb.
