Kai is a Fallen Angel who was born on Caliban[1b] and is among those who now loyally serve their returned Primarch, Lion El'Jonson[1c] as the Risen.[1d]

History

Before Caliban's destruction Kai held the rank of Knight-Commander and was a skilled duelist. He believed himself to be the best swordsman in his Legion, but other Dark Angels viewed him as a braggart and some even stated Kai's attitude made him a better fit for the Emperor's Children. However they also knew he was a warrior, who would never ask others to do what he would not. Millennia after his Homeworld's destruction, Kai emerged into Realspace and eventually met with his fellow Fallen, Aphkar and the two later met Lohoc. The three then banded together to survive in this new Imperium, where the Fallen were hunted by the Dark Angels Chapter and the Unforgiven[1c]. Sometime after the Great Rift's creation, they used a landing craft to travel to the Imperial world [[Avalus] and crashed into its capital Xerxe. The three survived the crash and hid themselves shortly afterwards. They then began discreetly leaving symbols that were only understood by the Fallen and which pointed to the building they hid themselves in.[1b]

The three later began hearing that their Primarch, Lion El'Jonson, had returned to the Imperium and was now in Xerxe. This was soon proven true, when the Fallen Zabriel found their hideout and stated he had been sent by the Primarch to find and recruit the Fallen[1b], that El'Jonson believed resided in the Capital[1a]. The Primarch wished for them to fight by his side to defend the embattled Imperium and was willingly to put their differences behind them. This came about after El'Jonson met Zabriel and then learned that some of the Fallen honestly believed he had attacked them first, during the civil war on Caliban. After hearing this, Kai and Aphkar were against aiding their Primarch, as they thought El'Jonson was responsible for the civil war and the deaths of their brethren. However both were surprised when Lohoc agreed to serve his Primarch, without a second thought, as he had never believed El'Jonson had been responsible for the civil war. To him, Caliban was a strange world and had likely twisted Luther's Dark Angels into causing the conflict. Kai agreed that something had seemed off with Luther and decided to meet with his Primarch, though he made sure to tell Zabriel that did not mean he would agree to El'Jonson's request. Aphkar reluctantly agreed to join them[1b] and Zabriel led the three to meet with their Primarch. The meeting began poorly, however, as Aphkar still held lots of anger towards their Primarch. Kai then took things a step further by activating his power sword and stating that if El'Jonson wanted his aid, then the Primarch would have to defeat him in a duel. While Kai had earlier mocked El'Jonson's aged appearance and wondered if his battle skills had now declined, the Primarch was able to easily defeat the swordsman. This led Kai to vow that he would serve El'Jonson, and both Aphkar and Lohoc agreed to do so as well.[1c]
