Kol and the House of Kor

Recommended Posts

Why is the House of Kor represented by Kol on the High Council? Shouldn't it be Kor himself, seeing how the House bears his name??

The same reason that Donald Trump Jr. isn’t as favored by his father as Ivanka Trump?   Not trying to get political here, but maybe the one who bears the name isn’t necessarily preferred or automatically next in line to head the House.

Why is it called the House of Kor then?

Well, even though Worf was effectively the head of the House of Mogh for a while, the House did not change its name to the House of Worf, most likely because Mogh's sons kept their father's name out of respect. Perhaps the House of Kor was initially named for Kor's grandfather, and the same thing happened?

Also, didn't Kurn represent the House of Mogh on the High Council, despite his brother being the real head? Then again, Worf was serving in the Federation at the time.

Perhaps Colicos’ Kor was named after the ancestral head of the House; much as Starfleet Lt. Worf was named after his grandfather “Colonel Worf” (STVI).
