First Appearance: Unknown
Powers/Abilities: G'Kar is currently non-corporeal, existing only in the Nexus.
History: G'Kar was the first born of Martak and V'Lam, the Emperor and Empress of the Shaddixian homeworld. As a child, G'Kar showed an extraordinary aptitude in the teachings of the D'Hakin and an understanding of the power of the Cho'ne. Being a member of the nobility, G'Kar became increasingly bored with the royal court and so decided to further his education with the D'Hakin. Soon afterwards, his parents gave birth to his sister, Rokos. From the day she was born, G'Kar felt an ever present evil lurking within the heart of his sister. An evil just waiting for the right moment to be unleashed.
G'Kar, hoping to save his sister from this evil, took it upon himself to teach her in the ways of the D'Hakin, and the legacy of Stregar and Ardul. Rokos, on the other hand, was only interested in power and control. She turned to Vraxis, captain of the imperial guard to teach her the ways of combat. G'Kar knew that given an opportunity, his sister would attempt to seize control of the Cho'ne and merge with it. If that happened, the universe would be cast into the dark abyss with Rokos as absolute ruler. It also meant that she would have the power to find the other four stones of power. If she managed to retrieve those as well, Rokos' reign of terror would have no end.
G'Kar, feeling that the best way to serve his people as their prince, would be to join the D'Hakin and protect the Cho'ne. Years later, his sister would start a rebellion that would shake the very core of the Shaddixian throne worlds. G'Kar, with the aid of those few remaining D'Hakin, took the Cho'ne and fled the planet.
During his escape, just moments before making the jump into hyperspace, his ship was damaged by a stray meteor. With only moments to act, G'Kar programmed his ship to exit hyperspace in the Sol system. He then used a technique known to only a few of D'Hakin and transferred his entire consciousness into the Cho'ne. Due to the extensive damage his ship sustained during his escape, G'Kar's physical body died. Thus he was forever trapped within the Nexus. The Nexus is the dimension that lies in between light and shadow, it is the source of the Cho'ne's power. While inside the Nexus, G'Kar stretched out with his mind and searched for the one soul who was noble enough to receive the power of the cho'ne and become the last Shadow Runner.
