Qward is a planet in the antimatter universe.
The Qwardians are the natives of this planet. The Weaponers of Qward are a society of smiths and engineers that comprise a large population of the native Qwardian race. The Weaponers are known for creating the first Qwardian Power Ring which became the signature weapon of the villain Sinestro. The Qwardians are sworn enemies of the Green Lantern Corps.
Qward and the rest of the antimatter universe are the direct result of cosmic tampering wrought by the Maltusian scientist known as Krona.
Millennia ago, Krona built a device designed to commune with the source of all creation in an effort to learn the origins of the cosmos. The experiment violated the tenants of cosmic law, and as such a backlash ensued which resulted in the creation of the Antimatter Universe.
Qward is located at the very center of the Antimatter universe and serves as that dimension’s analog to the positive-matter world known as Oa.
