He grew up with T’Challa and Shuri and has always harbored envy towards  T’Challa.  Being close in age they often played and sparred together as children.
When his father S’yan took over ruling of Wakanda in the death of his uncle T’chaka he saw it as an opportunity to surpass T’challa and ascend to the throne. Completing his training and walkabout while T’challa was away in America he waited for the yearly challenge to attain his prize. He challenged his father but things did not go as planned and he lost the fight.

He became bitter when T’Challa defeated his father in battle thus beating him in becoming king of Wakanda. He has always thought his father allowed T’Challa to win. As king T’challa appointed  him the Wakandan U.N ambassador to keep him from interfering. He performed his duties admirably despite knowing they were a shackle made to keep him away from the throne.

When Wakanda was attacked by Klaw’s forces  he was approached by a blond woman who was really a parasitic body thief in disguise.Thinking she could aid his people in their time of need he rushed her to Wakanda. On the way there however the plane crashed and as the woman lay dieing he tried to help her and had his body taken over by the parasite resulting in the consumption of his personality and death.
