His Signature Monsters are Metanoid and Fractus with their Plasma Energy Sword and Seismic Shake attacks.
Ky is a 15-year old young man with black, messy-like, hair. He has blue eyes and a light skin tone. He wears a red shirt with long sleeves
Ky is the leader of Team Stax, and his talent is only matched by his brash nature. Ky's father was a Kairu Master, and was the one who sent the Kairu Vessel to Earth in order to get it away from Lokar’s hands. Baoddai is Redakai’s masterful guru of good who has been battling Lokar forever, and he handpicked Ky to be leader of Team Stax and follow in his father’s footsteps. With the pedigree he’s inherited from his father and his strong confidence, Ky is a very very capable guy.
Ky made his first appearance in episode 1 - The Fist of the Colossus. He and Maya started joking about Boomer's zit. Then, they travel to the South Pacific where they encounter the Gihox and their human slaves. But before they can save them, Team Battacor comes in and they battle. They manage to escape them but encounter the Gihox, and Ky surrenders to them. After a little bit of digging, Maya senses the Kairu energy and Ky then levitates the Fist of Colossus out. After another battle with the Gihox and later with Team Battacor, he and his teammates get the Kairu energy.
In episode 2, Maya Goes Bad, Ky and Boomer were getting impatient in the hedge maze and left Maya behind. When they found her, Maya had gone to the Radikors and were confused. When they got back, they spoke to Master Boaddai, who told them of Kairu in the Middle East. After escaping from the Egyptian pyramid, they fought against Maya and the Radikors. Ky was able to grab Zane's X-Reader, which had Lokar's Shadow, and was able to reverse the effect on Maya.
He appeared again in episode 3 - The Kairu Diary. He and his friends were thinking of what to do with Master Boaddai's birthday but they got a signal from Alaska, where Ky and his Dad used to go train. Ky wanted to go but Boaddai said no. Ky, however, disobeyed and went there anyway, where he found his Dad's old X-Reader. However, he ran into the Radikors and was knocked out, losing his own X-Reader. Later, he found out from his Dad's X-Reader that he survived the Great Cataclysm event but was found by Lokar. Later, he meets up with his teammates and, using his Dad's X-Reader, defeat the Radikors and gets back his own X-Reader.
He also appeared in The Cataclysm Stone, where he and his team when to stop the Cataclysm Stone from stealing the Kairu in the universe. In the end, they are able to defeat the Radikors, contain the Cataclysm Stone and save the world.
He appeared in The Guardian of the Souls when he and Team Stax went to Romania and encountered the Imperiaz E-Teens. During the battle, Koz surrendered to Ky but used a Mirage attack and Ky attacked unknowingly. Master Boaddai then removes Ky from the team and has him transported back. However, he is able to figure out what happened and helps his friends defeated the Guardian of the Souls. After that, Boaddai gives Ky his X-Reader back and he later battles Imperiaz and wins.
In The Valley of the Banyan, Ky and his team were defeated by the Battacors and lost the first Kairu energy. When they got back to the monastery, Master Boaddai sensed a huge amount of Kairu energy and they went to India. They also took Mookee along, who was trying to be a Kairu warrior like the rest. However, due to Mookee's mishaps, Ky and his friends were on the losing end again. Later, when they battled Battacor, Maya and Boomer were taken out partly due to Mookee and Ky encouraged him to try again. In the end, Ky and Mookee defeated the Battacors.
