Karno was part of the Vada Prime, otherwise known as the Warrior Triumvirate of the Robotech Masters and was seen in Robotech: The Masters. He and his triumvirate brothers were selected to be mates to the muses Musica, Allegra and Octavia. He was rejected, and dedicated his time fighting the United Earth Forces instead. He fought to take control the Protoculture Matrix so that his forces would have the strength to fight the Invid. He survived the final battle on Monument City, and continued to fight the Army of the Southern Cross until he was killed during the Invid Invasion. He was originally in Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, the series which was adapted into the second "saga" of Robotech.
