At the age of four, his human parents were scientist on a colony at the fringe of federation space. Pirates attacked the colony, killing everyone indiscriminately. While his father tried to fight them off, his mother hid him to protect him.
A small squadron of Klingon ships answered the distress signal, where one of the crewmen found Kaziarl hitting one of the fallen pirates, his parents dead bodies nearby. Seeing much potential, the warrior decided to take the boy and raise him.
His childhood was filled with harassment, ridicule, and torture from the Klingon children he had to attend school with, but to his credit he didn't give up. Over time he found that his lithe, human figure could out maneuver the Klingon, whose body was by comparison cumbersome, and at times oafish.
At the age of 10, the Klingon children he went to school with goaded him into going into the forest unarmed, telling him that unless he did he would always be an honorless targ pup. When he was found 3 days later, he was covered in blood feasting on the heart of a Tarkelian Razor Beast.
After passing the Right of Ascension, even to the dismay of some of the Klingons around them, he joined the Klingon Military Academy where he faced even more ridicule from classmates. It took some time, but he proved he belonged.
His superiors, wanting to simply get rid of him, sent them on every dangerous mission they could. However they never succeeded. There was one incident in particular that is worthy of note. In the months leading up to the Dominion War, he captain ordered him on a lone mission to capture a Starfleet officer. Jho’NaS HoD expected him to perish in the attempt; however Kaziarl managed to pull it off and returned to challenge Jho’NaS HoD, becoming Kaziarl HoD as a result.
During his time as HoD, he became known for being the first to the battle field, and the last to leave. After many great battles, his crew seemed to forget that he was even human.
During the Dominion War able bodied leaders were in short supply and high demand, giving Kaziarl the opportunity to command a ship where he eventually won himself enough honor to be given the rank of ya'HoD (Fleet Captain). As soon as the war was over he retired, leaving the Klingon Military and deciding he needed to learn more about his heritage. When his adopted father confronted him, he simply quoted Kahless and left. In that moment, his father was no longer angry, instead feeling pride in the adopted orphan "A good warrior knows his enemy, a great warrior knows himself."
The academy had a different set of problems. Here people tended to be welcoming of him, yet he felt uncomfortable with their niceness. For the most part, he kept to himself, focusing on his studies with the same resolve that had carried him through his childhood. When he graduated, they offered him a direct commission as XO, which he turned down. He felt it would be dishonorable towards the other Starfleet personnel he had trained with.
His first posting was as a security officer aboard the USS Discovery B.
Served 8 years in the Klingon Military following his graduation from the KMA. Served aboard the Sword of Khaless, Molar's Head, and Hur'q Destroyer before challenging and winning command of that ship. Near the end of the Dominion War, he was made ya'HoD of the IKC Warriors Heart and the 3rd Fleet. (Names translated to Federation Standard)
After the Dominion War, Kaziarl decided to leave the empire. While his adopted father didn't agree, he finally gave his blessing after Kaziarl quoted Khaless, saying "A good warrior knows his enemy, a great warrior knows himself."
