Howard character, along with others in the movie. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Kull wished to serve in the Velusian dragon core as a soldier, and had to undergo tests and if he succeed at each test, Taligaro would allow him to join the army - fighting Velusian soldiers in battle and facing Taligaro in a blind duel. Taligaro was impressed with Kull's skills as a warrior and told him that he fights well, but told Kull to stick to his axe, when Kull failed in the blind duel, as Kull and Taligaro had to fight each other with a sword whilst blindfolded.

  • Taligaro was an heir of King Borna. When Kull fatally stabbed Borna in armed combat, Borna made Kull the new king and successor to the throne, denying Taligaro his inheritance and birthright. Taligaro conspired with Enaros to dispose of Kull and take his rightful place on the throne, by resurrecting Akivasha, and make her Kull's queen, so she can get to close Kull and kill him, allowing Taligaro to take the throne, with Akivasha at his side as queen.

  • No. Conan and Kull are from different times. In the original stories of Kull, Kull was from Atlantis in the pre-cataclysmic Atlantis c. 100,000 B.C. and Conan was from the ancient Hyborian age, after the destruction of Atlantis and before the rise of ancient civilizations. Which means Kull existed long before Conan's time. Kull was born into a tribe called the Tiger Valley of Atlantis and Conan was born on a battlefield and was the son of a village blacksmith.
