K'vagh can be at times a recluse- keeping his thoughts and feelings to himself and rarely socialising with other colleagues. There are from time to time individuals who make an impression on him for various reasons and one might consider them to be the closest thing to friends that K'vagh may have.
K'vagh is still deeply driven by honour, but seldom let's his society's customs and ideology conflict with his responsibility as a Starfleet officer.
K'vagh could once have been considered a very typical Klingon - loud, rude and aggressive. However over the years he has mellowed to conform to the expectations of a starfleet officer through and through.
Born into the noble house of Ma'vok - K'vagh enjoyed the fruits of Klingon aristocracy from a young age, his house was an honourable one and his father held a prestigious seat on the high council for his valour in battle.
Tragedy befell the young Klingon at the age of 10 when his father was brutally murdered, leaving the house's honour, title & lands to fall to K'vagh's uncle - Jel'Pok
Though it could never be proven, K'vagh always suspected his uncle had some involvement in his father's death.
In his early teens K'vagh was drafted into the Klingon Defence force and sent away from the homeworld. As he began to earn his own honour - Jel'Pok recognised a potential threat to his title, Jel'Pok used his influence to ensure K'vagh was removed from his post and sent to the border outposts - an assignment that was intended to keep K'vagh away from any glory and prevent him from gaining his own power to challenge his uncle.
K'vagh immediately recognised this attempt to distance him from the family and came to realise that so long as he was a warrior of the empire, his uncle would always have control over his life.
At the age of 26 K'vagh left the Klingon empire and made his way into federation space to make his own honour.
Less than a year later, whilst serving aboard a civilian transport, he befriended a former starfleet officer.
