A long time ago, a creature named Klak was created by a Nynrah Ghost named The Norman by infusing antidermis with an artificial Makuta body that she had made. Much of his past is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that he befriended both Tezzeret and Zev Raregroove many years ago. Sometime either before or after this, Klak fell to the darkness thanks to an unknown teacher, which would eventually inspire him to seek the counsel of Caiaphus. At another point in time, Klak and Tezzeret ran afoul of Sephiroth.
During the battle with the Hollows, Zev had disappeared, causing Klak to find the Apprentices of Caiaphus in order to train himself and TMV in the ways of the Shadows. Kensei and Prudence, friends of Zev, followed him and TMV to the temple. Believing Klak had betrayed Zev, the others attacked him. After pushing them away, the Makuta spoke to an anthropomorphic bird, which turned out to be Caiaphus himself. However, Prudence sensed an Arrancar nearby: Grimmjow JaggerJack. The group left, and Caiaphus transported Klak to the True Temple, the previous being an illusion. The latter was going to be trained by the former in the wondrous dojo, but he was transported to where Zev was, in order to defeat the Matoran in a Black Suit.
Klak almost attacked Zev after the latter used a dangerous form, and began to push everyone out of the way. Meanwhile, Caiaphus established a mental connection with the Makuta, tempting him and advising him during the battle.
Suddenly, a Toa, claiming to be the son of Kakamu attempted to attack Klak, but was engaged in combat with TMV. He then was transported away.
After lots of crazy stuff happened, Klak and an old enemy named Sephiroth ended up in a virtual reality created by Blackout, and were forced to fight Tratus, the Zivon, King Agrippa, Vorahk-Kah and a random Agrippa warrior. However, Prudence manipulated the reality, and Klak eventually escaped after getting beat up by a computer. He wandered the ship until he found Akzer, a gelatinous being called "the blob", and Muta, joining them to take down Blackout's ship. However, they could only kill a few Rahkshi before Caiaphus called them to his side. Here, he went under a test: find his allies and a traitor from the group. Klak soon discovered that Akzer was the traitor when he killed the blob and maimed the Pirate Lord.
After he congratulated the young Makuta, Caiaphus transported both him and Muta to Zev's location. Klak almost fought with Artroe and Velt, but quickly escaped to Zev, telling him about a code he learned about. He recognized the legend and told the Makuta about Terumi, and a similar tale. He then sent Klak with Prudence to an isolated world to find something that may help them in their quest to decipher the code.
Here, Klak met a fellow apprentice of Caiaphus: A Makuta named Nadle, and a vengeful Akzer. After forcing his allies away, Klak fought Akzer, discovering the truth about the legend, and that Akzer planned to betray their master all along. He then used his powerful attacks, and killed the Pirate Lord, using his ships power core to reach the battle over Mata Nui II. In this strife, he saw Sephiroth and began another duel with him.
The duel ended with Sephiroth's "death", and Klak began fighting Zava Reragrove, apparently an embodiment of death itself. After a brief philosophical discussion, Reragroove escaped. Klak then was stopped by Treveya, who warned him about the Baterra containing the Keruvim. He chased the droid to its location, taking it to Mata Nui II, and unleashing the artefact.
There was a great deal of talking and attempts to intervene, especially on behalf of Ta'harok, but Klak ended up using his body to stop the Keruvim from destroying everyone. Everyone thought he was killed, but in fact, The Shepherd had sheltered him and transformed him into a Makuta of Light.
Klak returned to the universe once more and revealed his transformation to Caiaphus, thereby becoming his enemy. Many things happened after this, but they were lost to time.
Eventually, Klak was kidnapped to Malchior IV by Keichi, and was turned to the Apprentices, who tried to kill him. However, he proved to be a worthy opponent, nearly killing Nadle. Later, the Conquistadores came to the field, and the Battle of Conquistadores v. Apprentices of Caiaphus had begun. Klak did his best against Caiaphus, weakening his nemesis. However, at the end of the battle, he was kidnapped along with the Norman, Treveya, and the Baterra.
Despite this setback, Klak continued his crusade, fighting various Apprentices inside of Caiaphus's body and killing several, including Tidal Wave and Rahn.
Klak Stumbles, But Returns
After successfully fighting through hordes of Apprentices, Klak was inches away from attacking the physical interface of Caiaphus's mind. Suddenly, an individual claiming to be a future Klak appeared, halting his counterpart's assault. This future Klak, or "F-Klak," claimed that he was always meant to help Caiaphus and the Makuta rule the universe. However, Klak's repentance was a ripple in the timestream which began to destroy this future. Eventually, Klak was convinced to return to the darkness once more in order to save his friends. This led him to fight D-Klak (who appeared in this universe at one point in time) and Ynot, till much later he was convinced to go back to the light by the Shepherd.
Various events occurred afterward, including an instance where Klak survived a mental attack by Blackout and helped D-Klak take on Barricade.
Klak then attempted to finish Caiaphus off, while Nadle and D-Klak took on the Makuta's remaining Apprentices. During this battle, Klak finally realized Caiaphus's goal: Total chaos.
Many more events occurred, and Klak later found himself on Blackout's ship with the Baterra. The Makuta proceeded to injure Klak in separate instances, with multiple moments of dialogue. Blackout went into a new form, and blasted both Klak and the Baterra into space, to finish the fight.
This lead Klak to reveal his Nova Klak form, and to fight viciously against Eclipse Blackout. However, because of the Darkmount's power, he was put into a coma. Klak finally regained consciousness and was pulled into a mysterious dimension where Caiaphus was, waiting for the final fight.
Caiaphus's Fall, and the Time of the Faroh
Nova Klak and Caiaphus once again fought each other viciously. Both used powerful attacks against each other, until Caiaphus finally revealed himself to be the creation of Nadle. Nova Klak unleashed a powerful attack that destroyed his former master's new body, and used a final light attack to dissipate the antidermis.
Such power loss reverted Klak to his normal state and in a coma. He fell into a portal and disappeared.
However, much later, he escaped from a sarcophagus that User MK had put him in. Klak had been wrapped in bandages, making him look like a mummy. This led Ynot to name him Faroh, with no idea of his true identity.
Faroh introduced himself to Ynot, and helped the crew of the Wigwam fight Blackout, who had cannibalized Darkmount to create a new body for himself, until they all had to escape. He later found The Mazkertis, Akzer's old ship, and brought it nearby to reunite with D-Klak, Nadle, The Norman, Treveya, and Abneris (all who had no idea he was Klak). They talked, trained, and Faroh ended up taking some of Ynot's men to fight Blackout-Darkmount once more.
It is in this fight that The Mazkertis was destroyed, and Faroh revealed himself to be none other than Klak.
The Second Quest for the Keruvim
Later on in this conflict, he then ran into a human named Praepositus, who was wondering about the Keruvim. The Makuta of Light, the human, Nadle, and Rahksha were teleported to a mysterious world, running into the Knights of the Keruvim, and eventually D-Klak.
Klak was assigned with the task of killing Praepositus by Flare, and kept this in mind during the journey. Along the way to the artifact, they met with Belldandy and her group, Deathsaurus and his pirates, and Aeturnus' army, the former two joining them in search for the Keruvim.
Klak went with Nadle, Praepositus, and Aeturnus to continue the quest, while many others in their group stayed at Bellidandy's house to eat some luvvly jubbly food with Books LLC. The group searching for the Keruvim were then faced with various trials.
Once they had passed the first trial (the defeat of a Decepticon), they found an old enemy: Blackout. A fight began, involving Ynot's group, Kakamu, and others. This ended in Kakamu's death, Blackout going into a coma, and Klak, D-Klak, Nadle, Keichi (who had just joined them), and Praepositus escaping with Ynot's group. Oh, and Deathsaurus had taken the Keruvim.
Much later, they had all reunited with Zev, and fought the Dark Knights that Blackout had summoned before his escape. Klak decided to remain with his friends and participated in the fighting tournament on the Space Station they had docked in.
Fighting Tournament and F-Klak's Return
After fighting several opponents, Klak forfeited in the fight against Wekiga in order to find out what was happening with D-Klak, who claimed to be hearing numbers in his head. Lots of stuff happened, and he ended up finding out his "destiny" as F-Klak. This led him to consider suicide, but Ynot ended up convincing him otherwise.
After facing Praepositus in the tournament, Klak noticed that Treveya appeared to be possessed. He quickly discovered that she had called to Caiaphus for assistance from beyond the grave to help her fight in the tournament, becoming the pawn of another diabolical scheme. Klak defeated Caiaphus, and Treveya was released from his control.
Pandorica's opening, the loss of the Keruvim, and the unending defiance of D-Klak convinced Uterio di Armechio, Generalissimo of the Knights of the Great Beings, that it was now time for him to set into motion his plan to take over the universe. He had long desired to restore the Dachori Empire (better known as the "Rider Empire) to its former glory and had been slowly gaining power in the Order of the Great Beings to help him achieve this goal. Using his secret HYDRA network, as well as the emergency war powers granted to him by the Council of the Great Beings, Uterio was able to command a vast army, with an effective propaganda campaign as well.
After learning about this threat, Klak and his friends joined forces with Blackout, TPK, and ZFT to create the Rebel Alliance, a group dedicated to stopping Uterio's invasion. The war lasted for over a year, and the Makuta of Light played important roles in many battles. However, several events of the war, such as the death of Treveya and the massacre of Malchiorian forces at the Battle of Malchior IV, traumatized Klak tremendously.
Thanks to intelligence gained by the Knights of the Keruvim and other groups, the Rebel Alliance was able to lead a decisive strike on Mordor, the homeworld of the Great Beings. The fighting was vicious, and countless lives were lost. However, a clever ruse by Zev and Sasuken tricked Uterio into revealing his true intentions for the universe, and a significant number of his army turned against him. Eventually, the Anti-Uterio legions overpowered the Uterian forces. The Generalissimo himself attempted to escape but was thwarted by D-Klak. He perished in the subsequent fight, as he foolishly attacked D-Klak when the Kestora was trying to save him from falling from his ship.
Klak helped negotiate an armistice deal with Angonce, with various terms later added in a more official version of the document. The war was finally over.
The New World Order
Sometime after the war, Mayor Michael Rosen contacted Klak and begged him to visit RacKoon City to investigate a mysterious plague that was turning many of the residents into vampiric monsters. Klak led a task force, which included the Malchiorian known as Peter, against the infected in an attempt to investigate what was going on.
In the midst of this chaos, he found Raziel. It was then that Klak had discovered that F-Klak was behind the plague. After fighting the vampire-turned-wraith, Klak was forced to leave with Peter, a shut-down Baterra, and the surviving members of the task force after Nadle was almost killed by a new threat, Ultron. The Baterra was taken by some scientists and Nadle was taken to a hospital. Klak then received word that Caiaphus was alive.
Klak searched the galaxy for his old enemy and helped Blackout fight Ultron, but they both failed to destroy the mysterious new threat. Books LLC rubbed their hands. Klak continued searching for Caiaphus, and arrived on Korasa, a snowy moon of Kamino, for information.
The Cadmus Conspiracy
He was then captured by a facility run by Project Cadmus. Drs. Richtofen and Nuvo Vindi both planned on experimenting on the Makuta and cloning him for their own nefarious purposes. Though they succeeded in cloning Klak, Cadmus agents Dr. Ciel and Ice Man both helped Klak escape from the facility. The clones of heroes Jorten Karzdus and Rain Sulrai, each named Jortenn Karzdus and Rainn Sulrai respectively, were also released. Richtofen and Vindi released a group of zombies to stop them.
Klak, Peter, Jinx, and the aforementioned Cadmus agents allied themselves with the facility's TYGER guards, led by Commander Yammark and Blizzard Wolfang, to fight Richtofen's zombie threat. The Malchiorians and the clones then left with Klak, saying goodbye to Ciel. The latter then reported Richtofen and Vindi's insurgency to her Cadmus superiors, and the rogue scientists were punished.
Eventually, Klak's group arrived on Malchior IV. They then met with Aster, who explained the threat of Omega Supreme, a massive robot that Blackout was attempting to unleash.
Klak led an army to fight Omega Supreme, but found out that Caiaphus was in the midst of them, rocketing to his location and fighting Blackout. The latter imprisoned Klak inside of Omega Supreme, where he was psychologically manipulated by Caiaphus. The Makuta of Light later fought Overlord Blackout after his tormentor left, and continued to be trapped inside Omega Supreme during the Second Battle of Neo Z'traa. After the giant robot exploded, Klak was nowhere to be seen, and some assumed that he had died in the explosion.
Miraculously, Klak had survived and was trapped underneath the rubble. Osseron rescued him, then allowed him to leave at a certain point. Klak later began to act very strangely.
Many events this writer cannot recall subsequently occurred.
Later on, Klak helped Osseron Tyrok, Ferret, Mink, Coro, and several other characters stop a Malchiorian Prison Break. Eventually, this group became part of the task force sent to investigate the origin of the mysterious RacKoon City plague.
It was rediscovered that F-Klak was, indeed, the source of the Plague (somehow Klak had forgotten). Upon being asked by Nikolai who F-Klak was, Klak responded with a cryptic quote about his supposed future self's nature. Suddenly, all of the enemies of Klak and his friends appeared. Caiaphus, Figlio, Ultron, and many others. Ragnarok was about to begin.
Heroes and villains died fighting valiantly, and only Klak, Ra, Caiaphus, and F-Klak survived. F-Klak revealed that he was a clone of Klak created by Cadmus, Caiaphus did not care and tried to destroy both Klaks to satisfy his hunger for destruction. Klak was suddenly powered by a foreign Light of Truth, and destroyed both of the villains. He proclaimed that his tale was over, but that a new one would begin, and was about to die. However, Ynot went back in time and rescued him at the last minute.
Klak regained consciousness on the Moon of Malchior IV. He subsequently realized that, in the original timeline, he was meant to die.
The Mazkertis Paradox
Klak is considered a Makuta, but with some additional powers, namely the ability to manipulate and weaponize light. He is also capable of telepathic communication and is rather intelligent, as demonstrated through his knowledge of military tactics. A future incarnation of Klak also showed enough scientific prowess to create the artificial intelligence known as Trevax, but he is not competent enough to accomplish such a feat in the present day.
In terms of weaponry, Klak has used both longswords and his Keyblade, which he wields in the present day. He uses these swords in accordance with the Tengra'shi technique, which was taught to him by an unknown master many years before the current arc.
When Klak reaches a certain breaking point, he transforms into a new form. If it is out of hatred, he becomes a monster (happened only once when fighting TMV). When it is out of just anger at evil, he turns into Nova Klak, an incredibly powerful form that possesses a flurry of Keyblades, and increases the potency of all of his attacks.
Dark Mirror Universe
An alternate version of Klak from the Dark Mirror Universe is a red and purple being, which travels between pocket dimensions and worlds, doing the bidding of the Great Beings. This is the same Klak which appeared in MakutaKlak's epic "Dusk and Dawn", and a closed game similar to BZPB known as "Glatorian Team". He is known as D-Klak.
SM Klak was a Makuta who used to work with SM Caiaphus, a lieutenant in the Order of Mata Nui. However, he betrayed him, becoming a mediator between SM Kakamu's forces and SM Zev Raregroove. SM Caiaphus was forced to fight this Klak, and destroyed him.
However, Tahar'ok misunderstood this, believing that Caiaphus betrayed Klak (obviously, his mind was clouded by the shadows of what remained of SM Klak's Antidermis). This lead to the Ta'har trying to kill SM Caiaphus. Ironically, all this became a reason for Tahar'ok to later warn the original Klak about the original Caiaphus's mad goal to take over the universe. So inevitably, the events of one reality played an important part in the events of another. In reality, of course, SM Caiaphus was actually the original Caiaphus all along.
What remains of SM Klak is either fragments of his antidermis that were kept by SM Nadle and his cult of suicidal cave-Toa, or utterly destroyed.
This version of Klak started an organization known as the Claws of the Phoenix. He was seemingly killed by DU Tahar'ok in a violent battle, but managed to survive and reconstruct himself as "The Simurgh".
This version of Klak was killed along with everyone else who gathered to stop LORD ENGLISH.
In the Reborn Universe, Klak is a Malchiorian human with cybernetic implants who works for Control City's police force.
When Klak was inside of Caiaphus's brain, a supposed future version of himself attempted to stop him. He convinced his "past self" to become evil to save their friend (but Klak later became good). This form once looked like a mix of his normal form with his Nova beast form, but now looks like Forte from the Megaman Battle Network series. F-Klak was thought to be a being from an alternate timeline, or Klak's inevitable future but was revealed to have been a clone that Cadmus made of our hero back when he visited Korasa. This clone had made several appearances in the RPG before he became F-Klak, often being referred to as "Klakk".
F-Klak boasted immense power, being able to strike fear in several powerful characters, even Namine. She only was able to defeat her former master in combat because he wanted her too. According to User:Klak-a-Klak, he is powerful enough to take on both Blackout and Zev at the same time, and win. By this time, we can assume that he has been able to train and study the shadows to become the most powerful Makuta in the universe (and its tyrannical ruler).
