Character Bio

For Dahar Master Koloth's earlier life please Click Here

Koloth was among the most legendary warriors, heroic military leaders and adept negotiators in the Klingon Empire during the late 23rd and early 24th centuries.

As a product of 22nd century genetic engineering, Koloth was descended from Klingons affected with the augment virus created in 2154. For the 24th century he seemed to have been cured or cosmetically altered.
(ENT: "Divergence"; TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9: "Blood Oath")

Koloth's status within the Empire was revered to the extent that he achieved the status of a Klingon Dahar Master. His glory would further succeed him, after his death in 2370, when he earned his own statue among the Hall of Heroes on Qo'noS.
(DS9: "Blood Oath", "The Sword of Kahless")

Much of Koloth's early career is unknown, however, by the 2260s, he had achieved the rank of captain and was assigned as commander of D7 class battle cruiser IKS Gr'oth.
(DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Koloth later greatly regretted not ever getting the chance to meet Kirk in battle.
(DS9: "Trials and Tribble-ations")

Koloth, Kor and Kang, who originally set out with forty legions, together held the Korma Pass against T'nag's army in a glorious battle in a trinary star system. The three warriors forced the enemy to fight with the blinding light of three suns in their eyes. The battle ended with the mountainside covered with so many dead that there was not a square meter of ground to be seen. They together feasted on T'nag's heart in celebration of their victory.
(DS9: "The Sword of Kahless", "Once More Unto the Breach")

In 2289, Koloth represented the Klingon Empire in the negotiations at the Korvat colony with the Federation. Koloth had little use for the Federation, and his implacable demeanor towards their top ambassador, Curzon Dax, earned him the nickname d'akturak or "ice-man". No matter how reasonable the proposal, or how much it favored the Klingon Empire, Koloth was never satisfied.
(DS9: "Blood Oath")

During the late-2280s, a band of depredators, led by the Albino, began raiding Klingon colonies. Three Klingon warships, led by Kor, Koloth and Kang, were sent out to stop him. Their mission was successful in capturing most of the depredators, however, the Albino was able to escape. In the Albino's last message to the Klingons, he promised to take his revenge on the firstborn of each of the three captains. Within a few years, he kept his word and managed to infect the warriors' three innocent children with a genetic virus that eventually killed them.
(DS9: "Blood Oath")

In 2290, Kor, Kang, Koloth and Curzon Dax pledged a blood oath to avenge the deaths of the sons of the three Klingon captains, the offense committed by the Albino. They nearly caught him at Galdonterre, but one of their subspace messages was intercepted and he, once again, was able to escape.

After decades of searching, Kang learned of the whereabouts of the Albino, in 2370, on the planet Secarus IV. Kang traveled to Secarus IV and discovered his compound. The Albino knew immediately of his arrival and invited the trio to a "fair fight" and one last glorious battle. Kang would contact both Kor and Koloth for a rendezvous on Deep Space 9, in preparation of their final attempt to complete their lifelong quest.

Three months later, Kor, Koloth, and Kang, with the aid of Jadzia Dax, prepared their attack on the Albino's compound, only to discover that it was a trap. Using the element of surprise, they bombarded the compound with tetryon particles, forcing the Albino and his sentries into face-to-face, hand-to-hand combat. Following a fierce battle, the mortally wounded Kang was able to slay the Albino. Fulfilling their blood oath, both Kang and Koloth were able to die a glorious and honorable death.
(DS9: "Blood Oath")
