Deathstalker's family was Deathstalker the Scorpion's family of anthropomorphic Mobian scorpions that he lived with before he began his career as a mercenary. Deathstalker was the runt of the family and often teased for his small size by his siblings, but the family loved each other dearly. The entire family was slaughtered on Brone the Vulture's orders, which prompted Deathstalker's desire for revenge on their deaths and his eventual progression into professional assassin and mercenary.
Tarquin was Deathstalker's father, Gladys' husband and an Indian red scorpion. He was proud, determined and a figure Deathstalker commonly looked up to. However, Tarquin owed a large debt to Brone the Vulture, a notorious crime boss and when he was unable to pay, Brone ordered the entire family killed with Deathstalker being the sole survivor.
