An image of Kahless was encountered in the Star Trek episode „The Savage Curtain“. Klingon warriors will often pray to Kahless for guidance before going into battle. Will he hide from us always? The stories of Kahless are the origin myth of the Klingon people.
Passed down from generation to generation, these stories remind the Klingon people of their origin and identity. Many of these stories are held within the sacred texts, a few exclusively. Nevertheless, they remain an integral part of Klingon lore. Long ago, a storm was heading for the city of Quin’lat. Everyone took protection within the walls except one man who remained outside. Kahless went to him and asked what he was doing. I am not afraid,“ the man said.
I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me. Kahless honored his choice and went back inside. The next day, the storm came, and the man was killed, as the wind does not respect a fool. Kahless was determined to teach his brother a lesson for having told a lie, but Morath refused to fight his brother, and instead ran away. Kahless pursued him across valleys and over mountains, all the way to the edge of the sea. And there on the shore, they fought for twelve days and twelve nights because Morath had broken his word and brought shame and dishonor to his family.
Kahless held his father’s lifeless body in his arms. He could not believe what his brother had done. Then his brother threw their father’s sword into the sea, saying that if he could not possess it, neither would Kahless. That was the last time the brothers would speak. Kahless looked into the ocean and wept, for the sword was all he had left of his father and the sea filled with his tears and flooded beyond the shore. The people begged Kahless to stop his weeping, and he did and walked into the water to find the lost sword.
He searched and searched the murky ocean bottom, holding his breath for three days and three nights until he eventually found the sword. Kahless later invented the forms of what would become the Mok’bara when he went to the Underworld in search of his father. Kahless showed him the forms, and his father was able to remember his body and return to the world of the living. Kahless single-handedly fought off an entire army at Three Turn Bridge. The tyrant Molor was so strong that no one could stand against him.
Kahless went into the mountains, all the way to the Kri’stak Volcano. He cut off a lock of his hair and thrust it into the river of molten rock, which poured from the summit. The hair began to burn, but then he plunged it into the lake of Lursor and twisted it into a sword. And the blood was ankle deep. And the River Skral ran crimson red.
On the day above all days. When Kahless slew evil Molor dead And after he used it to kill the tyrant Molor he gave it a name: bat’leth, „the sword of honor“. The story of the sword is known only by the High Clerics, because it was never written down in the sacred texts. This was so that if Kahless was ever to return, they could be sure it was him. When the Shroud of the Sword of Kahless was discovered, it was determined that the Sword of Kahless dated back at least 1,400 years. With the Sword, Kahless slew Molor, conquered the Fek’Ihri and forged the first Empire. Kahless would also use the Sword to skin the serpent of Xol, to harvest his father’s field, and to carve a statue for his beloved Lukara.
