Martok, son of Urthog was a Klingon warrior who rose to the rank of general in the Klingon Defense Forces during the late-24th century. A popular leader, he later became Chancellor of the Klingon Empire and saw his people through the First Multiverse War.
His wife Sirella and his daughters Shen and Lazhna were killed in January 2472 N.E. during Gothmara and Morjod's coup d'état. His son Drex once served as first officer on the IKS Gorkon.
Martok was born in the lowlands of the Ketha Province on Qo'noS to a common family. Fifteen generations of Martok's family had served the Empire as warriors, but Martok's father had hopes that Martok could become an officer. It took some doing, but Martok was able to take the entrance exam and passed. After getting the "stamp of Kor" for lacking noble blood, Martok was reduced to a civilian laborer. During a battle with the Romulans while serving on ShiVang's flagship, Martok's ship was boarded. Martok acquitted himself so well in the fighting that he earned a battlefield commission. He worked his way up and rose in ranks until finally achieving the rank of general.
