Personal History Edit
After civilization was wiped out in The Great Catastrophe, the remaining Immortals gave up The Game and swore an oath to guide humanity back to prosperity. The only one who refused to take the oath was Kortan, even going so far as to say that with all the other immortals taking an oath of non-combat he should by default claim The Prize. He beheaded Connor MacLeod, though not before Connor uttered a prophecy that another Highlander would take his place, and strike Kortan down.
With the Jettators unwilling to stop him, because of their oath, Kortan built himself the empire of Mogonda. After Quentin MacLeod, the new Highlander previously predicted, became Immortal, Kortan began devoting most of his attention to destroying him.
Kortan is a cruel individual who believes in giving no quarter, and maintaining his reign through fear and aggression. He does not appear to be grossly overconfident, however, and is intent on killing Quentin MacLeod before he can become a true threat.
Fighting Style Edit
Befitting his nature, Kortan tends to rely on power and a relentless offense in single combat. He uses a large two-handed broadsword, but is apparently strong enough to wield it effortlessly in one (in several episodes he's shown to possess a degree of superhuman strength).
