Kai-Ro is the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 in the 2040's and 2050's.

Early Life

Kai-Ro as a monk

Kai-Ro was abandoned by his parents as an infant and taken in by Buddhist monks. Believed to possible be the reincarnated Dalai Lama, he was raised as one of their own alongside his sister, Curaré. While he was content, she believed their lives were unfair and she wanted out. During one of the tests to prove he was the Dalai Lama, the elders went against tradition and chose Kai-Ro to participate instead of pulling a name for an urn. Kai gained a Green Lantern Ring in the process, failing the test. Curaré used this to argue for tradition, only for Kai to accidently destroy the urn, revealing she had rigged the draw. Both were banned from the temple and Curaré declared him her enemy. He travelled to Oa and trained with the Green Lantern Corps. Returning to Earth, he joined Justice League Unlimited.[2]

Justice League Unlimited

Green Lantern as a member of Justice League Unlimited

Raised in a Buddhist temple, Kai-Ro was often calm and collected, unlike his more aggressive teammates Warhawk and Barda. Despite his young age, Kai-Ro showed remarkable maturity and wisdom. He had also been around the universe and exhibited excellent proficiency with the Power ring. It is unknown how Kai-Ro received his ring, though the most likely scenarios is that the ring chose him after the death or retirement of Kyle Rayner or John Stewart both of whom shared duty of Earth's sector of space. He was more serene than most of the Justice League. When Superman brought Batman to join the group, Kai-Ro tried to temper down his hotheaded teammates, Big Barda and Warhawk. Also, while others immediately resorted to violence, Kai-Ro advocated more peaceful resolutions.

Kai-Ro continued to serve the Justice League into adulthood.




  • He was a vegetarian.[2]
