Aakar, son of Aakam was a Klingon special forces operative and a member of House Mo'Kai during the 2250s. He was briefly captured by Starfleet forces during the Federation-Klingon War. He is the grandfather of former Chancellor Gowron.
In 2256, during the Federation-Klingon War, Aakar led an attack on the Priors System. Using a computer virus masked as a Klingon genetic sequence, Aakar sabotaged the Federation weapon platforms above the planet, turning them on unsuspecting Starfleet ships. In midst of chaos, most of the Starfleet forces in the system were wiped out and Klingons took the planet, butchering the inhabitants and installing large anti-starship missile launchers on the planet's surface.
The U.S.S. Buran led an offensive against Aakar and his forces. The counter-strike was a success and the system was liberated. Aakar himself was captured and placed in custody aboard the Buran.
Aakar would not remain in custody for long. Using the same virus deployed on Priors World defense grid, J'Ula followed a Starfleet vessel to a holding facility in Mandel System and liberated him. Aakar returned to the Priors System and destroyed the Buran, exacting his revenge.
Aakar participated in the attack on Starbase 1, and was swept into the 25th century when J'Ula attempted to use her mycelial weapon. In 2411, Aakar served as J'Ula's First Officer, accompanying her to Qo'noS for the Great Houses meeting. Disobeying her orders, he told the gunman to fire the weapon on the Qu'Vat colony and killed him to avoid being exposed. However, he then betrayed J'Ula and sided with J'mpok, giving the Klingon Chancellor her weapon, which was subsequently used to destroy the Chamber of Alliance on Khitomer.
Aided by Louann Wilkins, an infiltration specialist of the Coldstar, an Alliance captain, accompanied by General Martok, Adet'pa and J'Ula go to the Gorath System where they hack the computer codes for the evidence of J'mpok's attack on Khitomer. Aakar confronts them, but he flees while his forces are defeated, and J'mpok dismisses the High Council in orbit and proclaims himself 'Emperor' following the evidence broadcast. He later confronts J'Ula, Martok, Adet'pa and Tenavik while J'Ula was undertaking several trials on Boreth. He flees and battles them, with the Alliance captain, in orbit, and plants a virus on the Lukara before escaping the system. The Lukara is destroyed, but the Alliance captain managed to rescue J'Ula and her crew in time. With the aid of Tenavik and the monks of Boreth who offered a clone of Chancellor L'Rell to replace J'mpok, the team look a trip to Gre'thor in search for her soul. They landed themselves in Koth, where Martok reunites with Gowron, whose personal honor satisfied Sto-vo-kor, but his entry is blocked due to the dishonor of his grandfather, Aakar. After defeating Fek'lhr in Gre'thor, Gowron offers his soul in exchange for L'Rell's before J'Ula could finish offering hers. Fek'lhr eventually accepts J'Ula's new offer of Aakar's and J'mpok's souls in exchange for Gowron's freedom.
In the meantime, J'mpok cracks down on any resistance to his rule, sending some to Rura Penthe to deny them their warrior's death, or disabling their fleets with a virus developed by Aakar. The Alliance captain, L'Rell, J'Ula, and Martok rally enough support within the Empire, including from the Gorn and the Orion Syndicate, to corner J'mpok on Qo'noS. After J'mpok's flagship is disabled, he retreats into the Great Hall, and Aakar enters orbit with his fleet. While ground forces are taking on ground troops, a team of Alliance forces, led by Kagran and Adet'pa disable the Targ and destroy Aakar's fleet. With both the Kris'tak and the Targ disabled, Aakar beams back to the surface to join J'mpok in the Great Hall. Before that however, Aakar wounds Martok at the courtyard and lures J'Ula into a duel to the death with J'mpok, setting up shields to trap them. Martok retreats back to the Rotarran to join the battle in orbit, but not before handing the Sword of Kahless to L'Rell. While J'mpok duels J'Ula, Aakar and his troops fight the Alliance captain and L'Rell. With the aid of Adet'pa, they bypass his shields and personal transporters in the Great Hall, allowing the Alliance captain to kill him just as J'mpok falls to J'Ula. The death of the two of them allows Aakar's grandson, Gowron, to be released by Fek'lhr from Gre'thor to Sto-vo-kor as promised, and J'Ula passes the Chancellorship to L'Rell.
