Biography

Past

Nam-Ek served General Zod loyally and acted as his counselor during the war against Black Zero. When Zod was captured and sentenced to the Phantom Zone, Nam-Ek and Aethyr fled Krypton before it was destroyed with the Brain InterActive Construct in the Black Ship making Earth its destination.

Season Four

The Black Ship came to Earth during the 2005 meteor shower, after the Crystal of Air was stained with the blood of Genevieve Teague. The ship's crash-landing was witnessed by Lana Lang.

Season Five

Nam-Ek and Aethyr exited the ship and encountered Lana who begged them not to hurt her before the Smallville police force arrived and tried to apprehend them. They quickly took care of them by using their heat vision to kill most of them. They massacred the entire police force leaving only Deputy Harris and Greg Flynn alive. The disciples super sped to the caves underneath Smallville and met Lex Luthor asking him if he was Kal-El. Nam-Ek grabbed him by the neck and determined he was not Kal-El as Lex bleeds, taking the key from his hand and left abruptly.

The pair traversed Smallville in search of Kal-El, leaving a trail of destruction and brutality in their wake. They were sent by their master to look for Kal-El, and terrorized Smallville in search of him. The two believed themselves the last survivors of Krypton. Nam-Ek and Aethyr later went to the Smallville Medical Center in their search and confronted Jonathan Kent and Lois Lane. Lois tries to confronts them, but they choke her and throw Jonathan across the room.

Lana appears and lures the Kryptonians to the mansion, claiming to know where to find Kal-El. Arriving at the mansion, Lana says he was in the vault, secretly trying to trick them into the kryptonite filled room. Nam-Ek manages to stagger away from the vault and regain his strength, long enough to replace the lead-lined door. The two recover and throw Lana across the room.

Clark arrives at the mansion and the disciples ask him to join them in order to transform Earth into a New Krypton. But Clark refused to help them. In that moment, Aethyr removed her bracelet and threw it at Clark that opened a portal to the Phantom Zone. However, Clark managed to resist and knocked them into the portal they opened instead trapping them behind a shard of glass that vanished into space.
