Peter, the little boy from Earth
Star-Lord is one of the main characters of the movie Guardians of the Galaxy” adapted from the Marvel comics of the same name. We discover him at the beginning of the movie on Earth, in the 80’s, when he is only a child at his dying mother’s bedside. When she breathes her last without being able to hold her child’s hand, Star-Lord, whose real name is Peter Quill, runs out of the hospital. It is there that he is abducted by an alien ship. After a 25 year time jump, he is found on an alien planet, sent by his “boss”, the same one who had abducted him as a child, to steal a mysterious orb. He then realizes that he is not the only one to covet it and decides to find a better buyer. He will find himself with the bounty hunters Rocket and Groot on his back, as well as Gamora, an alien mutant, who will explain to them the true function of this orb, which is simply to destroy a planet! They decide, with the help of a strange character named Drax they met in prison, to team up to prevent the orb from falling into the wrong hands. Peter Quill is a character who ended up becoming a thief without having much say in the matter, but who will show when necessary that he has a good heart. He is a seducer who also often plays with Earth cultural references to mock his companions. Star-Lord is the nickname he gave himself and by which he would like to be known even if it is unfortunately far from being the case.
