Captain Ginyu is a member of the Frieza Force and was formerly under Cooler, who is Frieza’s brother. He possesses the ability to swap bodies with people. Currently, he is possessing someone who has purple skin and horns protruding from his head. Only a select few people know of Ginyu’s actual form.

He realized that through this body, he would never be able to be strong or smart. Thus he concluded that he needs to look for a strong body to swap with.
