Bivvix was abducted by the Draal, an alien race that was replacing Green Lanterns with sleeper agents. The Draal would take the Green Lanterns' rings, and clone them. A creature called a xanoglyph would be used to probe the Green Lantern's mind, transferring the thoughts and memories to the clone. The clone would then go back to the Green Lantern's sector. When the Draal were ready, they would strike on many worlds at one time. It is possible the Draal kept the Green Lanterns in case of any unforeseen needs.
The Green Lanterns had given up hope of escape until they were joined by ex-Green Lantern Guy Gardner, who had just been captured by the Draal. Shortly, Gardner had devised a plan of escape. Working with Gpaak, Graf Toren, and Voz, they had to forcibly convince RRU-9-2 of the viability of their plan.

Using the battery cell of the robotic RRU-9-2, the gelatinous Gpaak carried the terminal to the high density neuron force field holding them in their cell. Gpaak was blasted into globules, but was able to reconstitute himself. Together with Gardner, the Green Lanterns were able to take control of the Draal ship. Following his request, the Green Lanterns left Guy Gardner on Earth to fight his clone.

Alongside Justice League America, Guy hammered away at his clone before triangulating the clone's location for transport. The clone was brought aboard the formerly Draal ship and stripped of its yellow power ring. The Qwardian ring was then sent to its rightful owner. The Green Lanterns headed out to get their power rings back from their own replicas.

Some time later, Graf Toren and many other Green Lanterns went to stop Hal Jordan from reaching Oa. They failed. Power rings across the universe disintegrated. Bivvix was forced to take a starship to Earth to warn Guy Gardner. Unfortunately, the strain was too much for the ship, and it was destroyed before entering the atmosphere.
Bivvix attempted to escape by using an EVA suit, however, the generating coils on the field life support unit failed. He was burned up in atmospheric reentry.

B'shi is memorialized in the Crypts of the Green Lantern Corps on Oa.

This was (I believe) the first mention that the GLs' power rings had disintegrated as a result of Hal's actions. Curiously, Hal's own ring didn't disintegrate after his entered the power battery, he crushed it under his foot afterwards...
Also, Bivvix spoke with a ridiculous French accent.
