Formerly a soldier of war named Lucas, Dark Oak is actually a memeber of a species of plant-like creatures from a faraway planet. His enhanced metalic body came to him as an idea to help turn the tide of the war he & his forces were waging against an unknown alien race.
The countless casualties of his men & his unwavering desire to keep fighting, led to him using he & his soldiers' new bodies to strip their home planet of it's life source ( Known as a 'Planet Egg' amongst his species ). The females within Lucas' species hated the idea from the start, including Lucas' family; His wife Earthia, along with his daughters Galaxia & Cosmo, who ordered a nuclear strike on Lucas & his men for their betrayal & corrupted new forms.
Lucas & his men survived, however, & with most of his species & homeworld dead ( save for his daughter Cosmo, who escaped during the planet's destruction ) He took on the name of Dark Oak ( based on his skin color prior to the transformation ), named the last of his army the Metarex, & vowed to strip the galaxy of all non plant life. With a galaxy devoid of humans/ humanoids, Dark Oak's twisted version of peace can finally be achieved. Free of war. Free of destruction.
In spite of his seemingly noble goal to obtain peace, Dark Oak isn't exactly against using brute force to get what he wants. He'll gleefully take joy in the destruction of all non-plant based organics & cut through them like candy with the help of his Metarex drones. Once finding out that his daughter Cosmo was about to escape their home planet, he forced her to surrender & made her a spy for the Metarex, implanting trackers within his own offspring just so he could get a leg up on Sonic & Co. to ensure they didn't foil his plans.
The process behind his Forestation Project is terrifying. Locating the source of the planet's energy, he uproots it, leaving all organic life to die until he can use Chaos Energy to create an endless sea of forests overtop. If any non-plant organics are still alive after stealing the Planet Egg, the Chaos Emeralds' magic will fuse the bodies of any human/ humanoid into the evergrowing plantlife, leaving said bodies as withering husks for nature to take over.
