Over a very short period, both Lilith and Gnarrk fell in love with each other, and decided to leave the Titans and go off and seek a future together on the west coast of America. And there they both stayed until the Formation of the Teen Titans West, which was formed by Lilith with Gnarrk being a founder member.

One night, a comet crashed before him, embedding a chunk of crystal into his chest. Somehow, this caused a transformation in him, expanding his mind, and his understanding of the universe. Soon, a volcanic disturbance threatened Gnarrk. The jewel in his chest protected him, though, encasing him in ice.
