Vath Sarn is a male extraterrestrial character who features in DC Comics.
Vath was from the planet Rann and a veteran soldier of the Rann-Thanagar War. While in the heat of battle, he encountered a Green Lantern Power Ring, the powerful weapon assigned to each member of the Green Lantern Corps. The Corps was in the process of recruiting 7,200 new members in an effort to rebuild their ranks following their destruction at the hands of the villain Parallax. The rings allow their bearers to conjure virtually any object or form of energy limited only by the imagination and willpower of the wearer, and thus the rings, which all include a sentient computer and the means to travel through interstellar space, sought out beings capable of overcoming great fear. When Sarn put his on, he tried to use it to use it to continue fighting the Thanagarians, but as the Corps code does not provide for participation in planetary wars, it immediately transported Sarn to the planet Oa, home to the extraterrestrial Guardians of the Universe, who administrate and oversee the Corps. There, he would be trained as a Green Lantern for Sector 2682.
Sarn was given a temporary badge and partnered with fellow new recruit Isamot Kol, a Thanagarian who was also plucked from the war. In contrast to Sarn’s discipline and adaptability, Kol still saw Sarn as an enemy from the war, and instigated conflict with him as they began their first assignment. This task was diverting ships away from Star 38, which, like several recent stars, had begun to show signs of instability. Kol was also slow to adapt to Corps protocols, questioning his orders. He even threatens an Okaaran hospital ship that fires upon him after refusing to change course from the star. The two eventually came to perform their duties as Lanterns valiantly together. The star eventually went supernova, and the two new recruits valiantly attempted to pull the ship from the ensuing black hole, but were sucked in. They were eventually saved by GL trainer Kilowog. They infiltrated a Spider Guild ship. Kilowog, being too large, was forced to send Vath and Isamot ahead, where they managed to gain vital intelligence on what the Guild was planning. The trio battle more and eventually join up with other Lanterns, including Kyle Rayner, Soranik Natu, Stel and Guy Gardner. The information leads them to realize Oa was under attack by the Guild. Despite lower power levels throughout the group, they manage to fight their way back to Oa and help repel the attack.
Isamot has gone back to Thanagar in order to be with his mate, Qalyra. They are both under the effects of their saurian biology, with an intense urge to mate. Vath, who visits the planet also, becomes endangered when attacking Citadel forces prove too much for him and he needs Isamot, who can't decide who to follow. Following the events of the Sinestro Corps war, Vath took it upon himself to honor of the fallen Green Lanterns, by creating replicas of them with his ring, speaking their names aloud and taking a drink in their memory.
