Ratchet comes from a race of aliens who refrain from any sorts of physical contact. Their technological society has achieved longer life, eradicated disease and reduced crime to a philosophical level because of this. However, Ratchet wished to meet real friends. He left his pod only to be stopped almost immediately by the Isolation Police. Ratchet is fired upon, arrested, and sentenced to 80 years of imprisonment. After two years his tendrils are amputated. He goes on a hunger strike but is force fed by robotic arms after 14 years. Finally after 40 years, Ratchet begins to hallucinate until it drives him mad with rage. A Red Lantern Power Ring crashes through his prison wall as a new tendril grows to take it.

Ratchet resembles a giant jellyfish but his docile appearance hides a heart filled with rage. As a Member of the Red Lantern Corps, Ratchet participated in the attack on the Green Lantern Corps and the Sinestro Corps. Ratchet participated in the abduction of Sinestro as well as his torture on Ysmault. Atrocius chose to plunge Ratchet as well as other Red Lanterns back into the Lake of Blood at the Red Central Power Battery to re-establish their sentience over their rage.
