Assignment: Emperor of the Klingon Empire
Rank: Emperor

Kahless, Son of Kahless is a Klingon male. A clone of the original Kahless the Unforgettable, Kahless was created by the clerics of the Boreth monastery in 2369.

By the mid 24th century, the clerics saw that the Klingon ideals expressed by the original Kahless had become corrupted, and that the Klingon people had lost their way. Feeling that the people needed a spiritual figure to rally behind, they decided to take genetic material from the original Kahless and create a clone. They programmed the clone with the memories of the original Kahless - including the story of the original Bat'leth, which was known only to certain clerics.

The deception was soon exposed when Gowron defeated Kahless in combat. Worf felt that the Klingon people still needed a symbol, and proposed that the Kahless become the ceremonial Emperor of the Klingon Empire - with the actual power still resting in the Chancellor and the High Council. (TNG episode: "Rightful Heir")

The Left Hand of Destiny

When Morjod and Gothmara attempted to usurp the throne from Chancellor Martok, Kahless aided Martok, Worf, and Alexander Rozhenko. (DS9 duology: The Left Hand of Destiny)

A Time for War, A Time for Peace

In 2379, the Klingon rebel group Klahb took over the Federation Embassy on Qo'noS and demanded, among other things, that the hologram posing as Kahless be deactivated. Until then, Martok and the High Council had been unaware of the duplicity. Many believed that the Federation was responsible for kidnapping Kahless and replacing him. This belief was further fueled by the discovery that the hologram was kept active by a copy of the mobile emitter that the USS Voyager brought back from the Delta Quadrant.

As it turned out, Kahless had replaced himself to see "how long it would take you to notice." The answer turned out to be six months. After getting help from discreet Klingon friends, Kahless traveled to Cygnet IV where he took up painting. He was found by the USS Enterprise and taken back to Qo'noS where he told Martok that he was no longer needed. After undergoing the vIt 'Iw tay ritual, he returned to Cygnet IV to allow himself time to be selfish and to do whatever he wanted. (TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)
