The Outriders is a race of genetically engineered humanoid creatures with the purpose of serving their maker until they die.
Thanos used Outriders to find new planets inhabited by weak species he would raze. Upon finding a new world, an Outrider would report to Corvus Glaive, who would arrive to that planet alongside Thanos' Black Order and demand a tribute for Thanos. If the inhabitants refused, that world would be annihilated.
After finding a new planet called Ahl-Agullo, one Outrider was tasked by Glaive to continue with his mission. He found Earth and gathered different information about the situation of this world using his telepathy on numerous important inhabitants such as Inhuman king Black Bolt, who ripped off one of his four arms after discovering him. However, he was still able to get away. When he relayed back the information to Thanos, Corvus gave him his reward; death.
Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)
