Little has been revealed about Balt in the strip, except that he is a transmogrified Gav, so Gav's history is his. What his motivations are for his transmogrification have yet to be revealed.
He dies when he accidentally rips off his head, trying to demonstrate his expertise with waldos 2012-03-14. Less than six days later his head has grown back, due to the activity of unidentified blood nannies, which are shared by other transmogrified Gavs on Oisri 2012-04-22.

It would appear 2012-04-22 that Binnie has grown a new head (in 6 days), and that other transmogrified Gavs at Oisri (possibly all?) have the same "very nifty" blood nannies. It also seems that the Gavs dont know where they came from, which supports the conjecture that they may be Redhack. If so, the UNS infiltration is pretty comprehensive, and may only be awaiting the trigger to go active.
