On Maltus, the homeworld of the Guardians of the Universe, Parallax was conserved ages ago and then he was taken from there and the Guardians locked him up with the energy of willpower in the Central Power Battery on Oa. Lying dormant within the Power Battery for over a billion years, Parallax waited for the right time for his release.

For the greater good, its existence was kept a secret to everyone and it weakened the green power rings against the color yellow. Because of this particular reason, the being is also referred as "The Yellow Impurity" of the green rings and the Guardians were more selective while recruiting new members for Green Lantern Corps; looking for great willpower among them to master the ring against yellow.

Then along came Sinestro, who gone from a Green Lantern to an enemy of the Corps. His imprisonment inside the Oan Battery awakens Parallax and the parasite took over Hal Jordan. However, Jordan was eventually able to break free of its influence and reborn afterwards (Green Lantern – Rebirth) as well as the creature itself. Later Green Lantern Kyle Rayner also become Parallax's host during Sinestro Corps War and joined the newly formed Corps as a herald of Anti-Monitor.
