One of the first Klingon officers in Starfleet, Koloth was named after one of the most venerable Dahar Masters of recent history by his father, a well-respected Gin'tak to a Klingon Great House and an accomplished diplomat. Although Koloth respects his heritage and has spent time serving aboard Klingon vessels in the past, making numerous efforts to honour his namesake, he has proven his dedication to Starfleet and to the Federation, upholding its ideals with a ferocity and zeal comparable to any fabled Klingon warrior.
A philosopher and tactician at heart, the reserved and polite Kudred embodies many of the traits common to his two progenitor races. Harbouring strongly-ingrained views on the conduct of law and order, he is a committed Starfleet officer with heartfelt beliefs and a deep-set dedication to the Federation's ideals and the belief in the rights of the individual. A contemplative character, Kudred is nevertheless fascinated by the anthropology of the galaxy's cultures and races, and his sense of exploration has been awoken by the opportunities afforded by the Delta Exploration Initiative.
