The Parliament of Trees
Calbraith A.H. Rodgers was born in England in 1920. Ever since he was a boy he had heard whispers from the leaves, the flowers and the trees that something great and terrible would be waiting for him on the other side. Afraid of what would be waiting for him on the other side of death he enlisted in the Royal Air Force to try and escape the pull of The Green. However, on May 3rd 1942, on his fourth mission as a pilot during the war his plane was shot down. Landing in a swamp the dying Rodgers felt the branches and petals reaching for him, delivering him to his new life as protector of The Green. By fusing the man with the Green in the final moments of his life the Swamp Thing is created.
A Message for Alec HollandEdit
Rodgers served a number of years as Swamp Thing before taking his place in The Parliament of Trees, the final resting place of his predecessors, where his consciousness would live on as the flesh of the body passed away. Rodgers would later leave The Parliament of Trees to become Swamp Thing once again in order to warn Alec Holland of the coming of both The Rot and Sethe, the enemy the Swamp Thing was born to defend The Green against. Rodgers knew that to remove his consciousness from The Parliament of Trees would mean true death, and after delivering his message to Alec and, warning him to stay away from Abby Arcane, he passed away.
