Faora was a clone of the original Kryptonian Faora Hu-Ul and a recurring antagonist in the CW TV series Smallville. She appeared in several episodes of Season Nine.
She was portrayed by Sharon Taylor.
The original Faora was born into a military family and raised on Krypton, and had a younger sister named Vala. Both sisters became soldiers and fought in the civil war against Black Zero. She served under Major Zod and stood in line of the soldiers having a sample of her blood taken by a medic, along with other soldiers under Zod's command, on the border outside of Kandor. Her blood including others was stored in an Orb as part of an experiment ordered by the Ruling Council to preserve Krypton's culture.
Faora was released from the Orb when it was opened and she came to Earth but having no recollection of how they came to be here. She along with the Kandorian Army were rendered powerless under the yellow sun even though they were promised great power by Zod. At the Luthor Mansion, Zod entered the den and met with Faora and Basqat who informs them he hasn't found any more of their people and they tell him that Tess Mercer has still not divulged any useful information. After questioning him about why they were on Earth and their missing powers, Zod ordered them to kneel but Basqat rebelled against him and struck him down. The Kandorians later placed Zod and Tess on trial which Basqat lead as the prosecution. He accused Tess of joining with Zod and was a part of the missing soldiers that were still unaccounted for. Tess denied knowing the Major and says if they want answers they should ask Zod.
Faora recounts her memory of blood being taken from herself and hundreds of other soldiers just before the battle of Kandor on Krypton. Zod tells them that the fact that they are all present means that Krypton has been destroyed. Faora then accuses Zod of betraying them causing him to tell them his record of service and personal sacrifice was greater than anyone else's. After his passionate speech, the Kandorians including Faora kneel before Zod.
Weeks later, Faora was with Basqat and Alia when Zod spoke to the captured Jor-El, stealing Jor-El from Tess' cellar while Zod was flirting with Tess in order to distract her. Zod released him after he was done beating him.
