Storyline

Keith was a cadet at Galaxy Garrison academy before being expelled, and as a result, he is an orphan and a lone wolf. Keith, sullen and temperamental, spends his free time honing his battle skills, but he also gradually learns the skills required to work with a team. Keith discovers he has Galra ancestors in season two, presumably from his mother’s side of the family. The revelation comes from a knife that links him to the Galra’s secret rebel group known as the “Blade of Marmora,” but it also strains Allura’s trust in him for a while. In season three, Keith takes over as Voltron’s new pilot of the Black Lion in Shiro’s absence.

Keith resigns from this position at the start of season four and hands it back to Shiro so that he can continue to work with the Blade of Marmora. Keith is reunited with his Galra mother, Krolia, at the end of Season 5. He rejoins the Paladins at the end of Season 6, taking command of the Black Lion once more. He dissolves the Galra Empire and transforms the Blades of Marmora into a humanitarian organization at the end of Season 8.
