Character History


In his first appearance, Pestar was a Monster who had been preying on Oil Refineries in the Middle East. Pestar's hunger for Oil soon brought the Monster to Japan, where it began attacking boats in order to feed. Eventually, the Monster was spotted by a Drunk Man and later the Science Patrol, who planned to have Pestar destroyed before it could attack Japan's Refinery next. With the help of the Defense Force dropping several barrels of Gasoline to lure the Monster out, Pestar was baited into a trap, and as it feed, the Science Patrol attempted to attack. The first attack though failed due to Pestar's speed and the Monster retreated. Suddenly as it resurfaced, Ide fired on Pestar at the wrong moment by accident, which provoked Pestar into using its flames to set fire to the Gasoline it was feeding on. As it headed straight for the Refinery, Pestar too set everything in the Refinery on Fire with its Flames. However, Ide managed to fix his mistake by firing at the exposed monster once more by striking it in its Stomach. Pestar was mortally wounded by the attack and collapsed, unable to move. Despite Pestar's being too weak to fight though, the Monster was still alive and as Ultraman arrived to wash away the fire of Pestar's attack, Pestar attempted to fight Ultraman by blasting him with his flames, Ultraman however only responded by hitting Pestar with his Specium Ray, killing the Monster without any trouble.
