The royal dark elf Khaos was stolen as an infant to be raised by fair elven royalty. Becoming a mercenary alongside half-elf swordsman Kromm, human archer Longstrider and elven technowizards Kamendae and Quatro, Khaos eventually learned his true destiny: to end the eternal war between Irth's many technomystical races. He succeeded, but human archmage Ghath attacked Khaos and he was inadvertently sent to Earth-616. Khaos selected a volunteer to kill Ghath, but the spell malfunctioned, sending Khaos instead. The British team Excalibur
of 616 followed Ghath and Khaos back to Irth, where Ghath had already gathered his forces for a final assault on Khaos. Excalibur and Khaos's followers defeated Ghath forces, but when Exicalibur returned home, Khaos was accidentally exiled as well. Declining Excalibur membership, Khaos decided to try re-creating Ghath's original teleportation spell to return to his native world and keep it from falling once more into eternal war.
