Origin

A member of the Royal Family of the Inhumans and cousin of the future king, Black Bolt, the infant Karnak and his brother Triton were both scheduled to undergo the process of Terrigenesis. When the mutating process transformed Triton into a green-scaled aquatic creature incapable of surviving outside of water, Karnak's parents begged to not have their second child exposed to Terrigenesis.


Sending the child to the Tower of Wisdom monastery, Karnak was trained in discipline of the body and mind, until he became an adult and took his place in the Royal Family of the Inhumans as their advisor and philosophical mentor, capable of perceiving the weakness in any object, idea, plan or opponent and shattering it.
