Judge Caligula (known as 'Judge Cal') was the head of the Special Judicial Squad, the branch of the service which judged the Judges in Mega-City One. He had a voracious hunger for power which led him to blackmail rogue Judges into becoming his own private army and helping him assassinate Chief Judge Goodman.
With Goodman dead and Judge Dredd off on a mercy mission in the Cursed Earth, Cal engineered his own election to the post of Chief Judge, and began a reign of terror which allowed his previously unsuspected insanity to bloom. He appointed his pet goldfish as his Deputy Chief Judge, brought in vicious alien mercenaries, the Kleggs, to act as his enforcers, and at one point began executing the entire population in alphabetical order, much to the horror of citizen Aaron A. Aardvark.
