Molor in 2409.

Molor son of Markag was an ancient Klingon warrior who lived during the Heroic Age and was the sworn enemy of Kahless the Unforgettable. (TNG episode: "Firstborn")


The Man: Lord of an Empire Edit

He had two sons namely Starad and Yatron who would, on occasion, lead armies into battle to ensure their fathers dominance of much of Qo'noS. His empire was centered around the fortress of Qa'yarin. (TNG novel: Kahless)

Molor's troops besieged Kahless and Lukara at Qam-Chee. (DS9 episode: "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places")

During the latter years of Kahless's rebellion, Molor would be stricken down with a plague that had spread among the minn'hor beasts. This would be a remarkable case for the tyrants doctors had informed him that the chances of anyone suffering from an infection from the plague was one in a thousand. Still, Molor led his crumbling empire in an effort to contain the rebellion that was slowly reaching his fortress. Kahless would eventually make siege on the fortress of Qa'yarin on the Skral River. Using knowledge of the citadel's layout form his years as Molor's warchief, Kahless and Morath broke into Molors inner sanctum where they discovered the pale, mottled, weak form of Molor. He explained to the intruders of his situation and displayed disgust at his condition. Kahless, being the honourable warrior that he was, gave his d'k tahg to Molor in order for the tyrant to kill himself before Kahless's followers did so. Molor commented on how noble a gesture that was as well as how foolish it was and attempted to use the blade to kill his former warchief. Morath, however, took the blade to the chest. In rage, Kahless killed his former master with his bat'leth, the Sword of Kahless, by decapitating him. He took the severed head to the roof of the fortress where he told the combatants below that the tyrant was dead after which he threw the head from the roof where it impacted the ground. Molor's reign as the ruler of Qo'noS finally had ended. (TNG novel: Kahless)

Legacy Edit

Molor's death is celebrated in Klingon drinking songs and his attack on Kahless and Lukara after their wedding is recalled with a symbolic, non-lethal barrage of Ma'Stakas after modern Klingon weddings. (DS9 episodes: "The Way of the Warrior", "You Are Cordially Invited")

Despite his infamy, Molor had a shrine dedicated to him that his followers would visit in the 2250s. It was near the Orions' embassy/outpost on Qo'noS. (DSC episode: "Will You Take My Hand?")

Worf recalled the slaying of Molor by Kahless when he discovered and held the Sword of Kahless. (DS9 episode: "The Sword of Kahless")
