Kirch was the commander and head security guard on the Valiant.


Kirch joined Aquax's crew on the Valiant, placed on by senior officers above Aquax's rank. He was there when Xera found Brains floating in space. Advising against bringing them on the ship, Kirch was later assigned to guard Xera but disobeyed those orders. After Xera left, Kirch tried to destroy the Brain, but failed and was possessed by the swarm leader.

Swarm Leader

The swarm leader took command of the ship and sent the Brains to infect all the crew members, save Xera who promised that he would help the Brains. Kirch programmed the ship to speed toward Hero Factory to destroy it. After Natalie Breez and Daniel Rocka boarded the ship, Kirch set a trap for Rocka in the engineering section of the ship. As Preston Stormer flew in, Kirch ordered the ship to fire on him while he went to Rocka. Capturing the Hero, Kirch held him hostage until Nathan Evo and other Heroes arrived in Drop Ships, holding the Valiant in a tractor beam. Kirch ordered the ships to be fired upon, but was forced into a stalemate when Dunkan Bulk and William Furno arrived. Kirch was told that the ship was heading to the sun of Makuhero City and he decided to leave with the Brains, first ensuring the Valiant's course could not be altered. The swarm leader possessing Kirch detached from his body, promised Stormer they would meet again, but he and the Brains were vaporized by the star's heat.

Abilities and Traits

Kirch is a dedicated and competent guard, but was distrustful of Xera. The swarm leader that possessed him was ruthless, committed to the destruction of Heroes and Hero Factory at all costs for unknown reasons. He was able to lay traps as the swarm leader and was very devious, and confident that the Brains would destroy Hero Factory.


"This ship is ours. Hero Factory will not take it from us ... but we will deliver it to them, with fire and thunder."
