KaiThe Kais are among the oldest of the races in the Marvel Multiverse. They are almost as old as the Watchers. The Kai evolved from an extra-dimensional species of insect. Their society is based on the development of their powers and abilities as well as the observation of events and races througout the multiverse.
Unfortunately, 2 major events changed the Kai forever. The 1st was the Renegade War. A group of Kais led by Bojack rebelled against the leadership of the Elder Kais. These Renegades felt that the Kai should use their powers to rule the universe. This resulted in a bloody war that destroyed more than half the Kai race. Of the Renegades, all but Bojack and 4 of his followers survived. The Elder Kais used their powers to imprison the Renegades in a planetoid(later to be known as the Makio Star) and then sent it hurtling through the cosmos to parts unknown. Millions of years later, the Z-Team of Earth was forced to destroy much of the Makio Star to defeat the Nilbog known as Garlic Jr., thus freeing the Renegades.
The 2nd major event(which happened soon after the defeat of the Renegades) was the appearance of the Majin, a race of archmages (similar to Marvel's Dire Wraiths), has threatened the balance of the universe. Seeing the Kai as weak, the Majin used their magics to enslave entire planets so that they could use the inhabitants to invade the Kai homeworld. This proved futile, in that the Kai were able to free the slaves from Majin control. The slaves then took their revenge on the Majin by destroying much of the Majin and their cities. All but 5,000 Majin survived the massacre. The survivors then scattered to the distant corners of space.
As a result of this defeat, the Majin archmage, Bibidi, created a magical android known as Buu. This android laid waste to each of the planets that had rebelled against the Majin. Finally coming to the Kai homeworld, Bibidi had Buu slay and absorb as many of the Kai as possible. Less than 350 of the Kai survived. This slaughter ended when the Supreme Elder Kai(the leader of the Kai race) "fused" with the essence of Buu. This "fusion" made Buu weaker than before. Bibidi, disgusted at his greatest creation's weakness, magically imprisoned Buu in a mystical egg. Soon after, the archmage was killed by a young Kai(later to become Kabido Kai) who buried the magic egg deep beneath the Earth's crust.
The young Kai was then made the sole Supreme Kai of the universe. Seeing the Kai unable to protect the universe as they were before, the Supreme Kai put together a team of fighters from throughout the universe (The Z Team). He then entrusted each of the lesser Kai to watch over a sector of the universe. These Kai would recruit new members of the Z-Team to help protect their sectors.
