The name Tarkus has puzzled many, and been open to all manner of misrepresentations, it is however an amalgamation of two elements. The first is found in the Bible at the second letter of Peter chapter 2 verse 4. A condition of deep spiritual debasement is mentioned called “Tartarus”. The other is the term “Carcass” hence the name was painted in bones. (you heard it first here folks!) Thus Tarkus essentially stood for the futility of war, a man made mess with symbols of mutated destruction.
