K' (pronounced "K
Dash") debuted as the leader
of the Hero Team in King of Fighters '99. K'
was once a normal child who lived with his sister, Seirah. One day, NESTS (a
crime syndicate who deals with drugs, genetics, robotics & biotechnology)
kidnapped K' and his sister. Over the yeasr, NESTS trained K' to be some kind of
weapon. In 1998, K' was to take part in the Kusanagi cloning program. After K'
was infused with Kyo's DNA, he was
granted the power of pyrokinesis. K's memory was wiped by NESTS and he was made
to believe that he was Krizalid's
NESTS ordered K' and Maxima
to join the King of Fighters tournament along with Benimaru
and Shingo. The
team made it to the finals and were sent to find Krizalid, who was posing as the
tournament's host. Krizalid fought them to gather their battle data energy and
was planning to use the data to activate the thousands of listless Kyo clones
around the globe. However, K' defeated him and learns that Krizalid was only a
pawn for NESTS. Later, K' and Maxima left NESTS. K' wanted to find a way to
regain his lost memories.
The next year, K' and
Maxima entered the KOF 2000 tournament to learn NESTS plans, and formed a team
with Vanessa and Ramon.
However, Vanessa and Ramon were there to capture K' and Maxima, since they were
secretly working for Heidern.
Their team made it to the finals and encountered Zero.
K' defeated him, but they were unable to stop the Zero Cannon from firing.
Unknown to them, Kula Diamond and
her team were able to destroy. K' and Maxima separated from their teammates
after the tournament. Later, Whip
ran into them and revealed that K' is her brother. She then joined their
They spent the remainder
of the year hunting NESTS's bases across the globe. They stumped some of the
syndicate's plans, but none of the bases were the main headquarters they were
looking for. K', Maxima and Whip entered the 2001 tournament with Lin,
who tracked their movements in his personal hunt for Ron. Once they made it to
the finals, they were lifted into a spaceship and were confronted by Original
Zero. He revealed that they are on their way to the syndicate's main
headquarters and will soon meet the real leader to NESTS. Once they reached the
satellite, they meet Nests, Misty, and Igniz.
Nests requested their neutral cooperation, but he was quickly killed by Igniz.
Igniz's then told them that they were created simply for his personal
entertainment. K's team engages in a battle with Igniz and defeated him, but
Igniz sent the satellite, that they were on, in a kamikaze crash course to
Earth. The satelite crashed into the ocean (apparently thanks to Ron) with most
passengers safe. Emerging from the wrecked satelite, K' formed an alliance with
Kula and Diana. Both of them want to make their own future and make up for the
time lost in their lives.
Before the 2003 started,
Chin Gentsai visited
K' and Maxima, requesting that they enter the tournament. Chin was feeling a
dark wave of energy around KOF that year, and wanted them to investigate it in
his place. K's team made it to the finals and fought Mukai.
K' defeated him but was distraught by Mukai's taunts about regaining his
memories and reaching his true potential. Mukai's words continued to haunt him
in the following tournament, leading K' to wonder if he can surpass his fate as
"the second Kusanagi flame".
At the end of the XI tournament, K' and his teammates were invited by
Heidern to attend a lecture about the mysterious group Those from the Past.
Heidern said that he had Magaki's
body, but they were attacked by two children who took Magaki's body away. K' had
absolutely no interest in entering the KOF XIII and is upset when Chin
calls him once more at his apartment with Maxima. Since he soon learns from Chin
and Kula that they're in the newest tournament, K' is forced to enter against
his own will.
