Manas, formerly known as Anderson Le, was a human male and former Federation Starfleet officer in the early 2160s, until he was stranded on Altamid when the USS Franklin crash-landed there. Le then took on the name "Manas" after using the energy transference technology on himself, which severely mutated his body. (TOS movie: Star Trek Beyond)
Le was a Starfleet officer in the 2160s who served under Captain Balthazar Edison aboard the USS Franklin. Le and the Franklin's crew were then displaced by a wormhole inside the Gagarin Radiation Belt. The Franklin then crash-landed on Altamid. Only he, Edison, and Jessica Wolff survived the crash.
On Altamid, Le, Edison, and Wolf found technology left behind by the previous inhabitants such as ships, a drone workforce, and life prolonging technolgy. Using their newly acquired technology, Edison, Le, and Wolff captured scores of alien ships and drained their crews to survive, which also mutated their biology to resemble that of their victims. In time, Le became "Manas", suppressing much of his Human identity and even ceasing to speak in English. (TOS movie: Star Trek Beyond)
Following the capture of Jaylah's and her family's ship, Manas and Krall then took her older sister, Keelah for the energy transference. He then threatened to kill her father if she did not allow them to take her sister. Manas and his drones then discovered that Jaylah and her father were trying to escape. Jaylah's father then fought Manas until he shot him. However, Jaylah escaped and hid herself aboard the Franklin. (TOS - Boldly Go comic: "Issue 5"; TOS movie: Star Trek Beyond)
