The Albino (also known as Qagh) was a criminal who came to be the nemesis of Curzon Dax, Kor, Koloth, and Kang when he killed the firstborn of the three Klingons. He was a member of the noble House of Ngoj who was to be put to death for being impure by Do'Yoj under the orders of the child's mother: Lady Moj'ih - Aunt of Kor. Qagh was rescued by Orion Pirates D'Jinnea and Ganik who exploited his knowledge and abilities in hopes of blackmailing the House of Ngoj for their wealth and influence on the Klingon High Council. The pirates named him Qagh ("mistake").
Up until 2248 Qagh and the Orions attacked outposts and sold captives into slavery. After 2248 the Albino (who murdered both D'Jinnea and Ganik) began leading attacks on outposts to recover biological research data. During one such raid on Ganjitsu, the Albino's efforts were prevented by Hikaru Sulu disabling power to the laboratory. In retaliation the Albino destroyed the facility after returning to The Jade Lady.
In 2289 he was involved in a terrorist attack upon the Federation/Klingon peace talks on Korvat Colony and was directly responsible for the destruction of the IKS Mev'Luh. As of this time period (according to a DNA scan by Doctor Christine Chapel obtained at Korvat Colony, the Albino suffered from anemia, cancer, circulatory problems, diabetes, neurological problems, and pulmonary disease.

After years of searching for the albino, Kang finally tracked him down to a heavily fortified compound on Secarus IV in 2370. After re-uniting with Koloth, Kor, and the new Dax host, Jadzia, the group finally extracted their revenge against Qahg, with Kang administering the death blow. Both Kang and Koloth died from wounds suffered in the battle (DS9 episode: "Blood Oath")
