Gorvan is a short, overweight Tetramand who wears a lime green and black jumpsuit, grey belt, and two pairs of gloves.
In his disguise, he wears a Plumber Suit with a visored helmet and two sleeves large enough to fit two arms each, making it appear as if he had only two arms.

Gorvan is ill-tempered and impatient.
In Mud Is Thicker Than Water, it was revealed that Gorvan was the spy who had infiltrated the Plumbers so he could supply Psyphon and his thugs with the latest Plumber technology and the Anihilaarg. In a raid, Gorvan was thrown out of the Plumber ship by one of Psyphon's goons to avert suspicion, angering him in the process, and unknowingly leading the Plumbers to their hideout. He then fought Gwen but was defeated by her. He was then arrested by the Plumbers.
In Stuck on You, Gorvan is hanging out at the Black Hole when Khyber comes looking for Skurd and temporarily gets his DNA fed on, sprouting four arms identical to his out of his head. When Khyber explains that he wants to work with Skurd and presents him the Nemetrix, he abandons Gorvan, who weakly falls to the ground.

Ben 10: Alien Force
Ben first meets Gorvan where he was fighting a group of the Forever Knights, where he is after a mysterious component. Gorvan enlists Ben, Gwen and Kevin's help to find the rest of the components. He claims to be a Plumber (he had a Plumber badge on his left pectoral) and even knew Max Tennyson.
Secretly, Gorvan was working for the Highbreed and is on the run from the Plumbers. He tricked the trio into invading a Forever Knight's castle and fighting Vulkanus and his Pickaxe Aliens for another component.
Gorvan turned Kevin into a DNAlien and made him fight Ben, but luckily, Ben was able to defeat Kevin and change him back to normal. Gorvan then fights Ben, and used a rejuvenation machine to increase his stamina. Ben was still able to defeat him, however, and kept Gorvan captive with some holding-cells. It is unknown what happened to him after the game was over, though it seemed that he was put into Plumbers' captivity.
- Even though Gorvan was first introduced as a video-game character, he has his own action figure and his collectible card that shows what he looks like in the TV series. He also has a smaller toy in an Alien Creation two-pack with Murk Upchuck.
- At some point in the planning stages of Arc 6 of Omniverse, Gorvan was meant to be a member of the Rooters.[DJW 1]
- Derrick J. Wyatt added Gorvan to Omniverse because he really liked his action figure.[DJW 2]
- In the video game:
- Gorvan is in possession of a machine which refills his stamina.
- Gorvan admits he could stand to lose a little weight.
- Gorvan is shorter than average for a Tetramand.
- Gorvan is one of the few Plumbers to have gone rogue and become a criminal. Before going rogue, he held the rank of Magister, making him currently the only known Magister to have gone rogue.
- Gorvan didn't seem to be aware of the Highbreed's true plan, like the Forever Knights were.
- Even though the Forever Knights were allies of the Highbreed, Gorvan fought them and used Ben and his friends to attack them and steal one of their components.
