Space Sector: 1417
Sector Partner: Service pre-dated sector partners
There have been conflicting accounts as to how Sinestro was inducted into the Green Lantern Corps. One reported account states that Jewelius Blak, the former Green Lantern of Sector 1417, traveled to Korugar and personally chose Sinestro as her apprentice.
It has been said that Sinestro patterned himself after her, and was later summoned by the Guardians of the Universe to be the sector's Green Lantern when she was disabled.
Another legend of Sinestro's origin is the darker more foreboding tale of Prohl Gosgotha; the Green Lantern who fell wounded on Korugar and passed his ring onto Sinestro as a temporary means of defending Korugar from Gosgotha's attackers, the Weaponers of Qward.
Allegedly, Sinestro defeated the Weaponers and returned to the fallen Lantern who requested his ring back in order to keep his injuries stabilized until help arrived. Rather then return the ring, the legend states that Sinestro stood silently and watched the wounded Lantern slowly die.
Although both stories have been circulated, Sinestro's actual induction into the Corps is still surrounded in mystery. What is known is that Jewelius Blak served the Corps honorably before her death and, for that service, she is memorialized in the Crypts of Oa, the planetary headquarters of the the Green Lantern Corps.
