"I believe a great fortune can smooth over any transgression."

Species: Kree

Portrayed By: Dominic Rains

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (first appears in Episode 90: "Orientation, Part Two")

"A life spent. A life earned."

A Kree noble of House Kasius who is overseer of the Lighthouse.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He has blue skin like the rest of the Kree, only his face is mostly covered with a white powder akin to makeup.
  • Arc Villain: Of the S.H.I.E.L.D. in Space arc in Season 5, as he's the one overseeing the Kree who have enslaved the surviving humans, and plans to acquire enough wealth by selling Inhumans to return to his homeworld as well as destroy the Lighthouse and every human in it when he leaves.
  • Berserk Button: Kasius endures all of his brother's taunting, but when Faulank tries to take Sinara from him, he furiously stabs him in the back.
  • The Berserker: After ingesting the Odium, he goes on a screaming rampage and shrugs off shotgun bullets.
  • Canon Foreigner: There's no Kasius in the comic books.
  • Death by Irony: Is killed from behind with Mack's shotgun axe, similar to how he killed Faulnak with a bayonet. Furthermore, Mack was able to finish him off because Simmons distracted him and shoved a bug in his ear like the one he had used on her.
  • Dirty Coward: From his father's point of view — he ran from a battle after it became clear that he could not win. It is Kree culture to always make a Last Stand.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Kasius is confident enough that Humans Are Bastards and will always turn on each other for the sake of self-preservation. He fails to realise that The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People, and Team S.H.I.E.L.D. uses that against him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: It's all but stated that he has romantic feelings for Sinara, and after she is killed, he snaps from grief. Furthermore, he still seeks his father's approval, even after believing that the latter tried to have him killed.
  • The Exile: Kasius is exiled by his father. His Inhuman weapon trade is an effort to mend fences with his father for fleeing from a military battle.
  • Faux Affably Evil: His manners and delusions of philosophy mask a vicious, cruel and vindictive temper.
  • General Failure: He's a pariah in his family for losing a fleet. According to him his father put him in head of a military command without bothering to properly train him to be an officer or a warrior. He comes to believe his father wanted to get rid of him.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Kasius's fate, courtesy of Mack's shotgun axe.
  • In Touch with His Feminine Side: A bit of a dandy who has aesthetic tastes and admires Earth weapons for their craftsmanship, not their lethality, which makes him the black sheep of his Proud Warrior Race Guy family.
  • Leitmotif: A rather soft and creepy piano tune that plays in most of his scenes.
  • Last Villain Stand: Even after S.H.I.E.L.D. takes away everything that he has, he consumes the Odium to fight Mack himself.
  • Make Wrong What Once Went Right: Once he understands all his allies are dead and he has no way to enslave the Lighthouse humans, he attempts to take Team Coulson with him to keep them from returning to their time so his father will be able to conquer Earth.
  • Meaningful Name: Kasius shares his name with his House, implying that he was named someone important in his family history, likely its founder, and that his father had high hopes for him, emphasizing how much of a disappointment he is to his him.
  • Narcissist: Kasius is obsessed with beauty, both in his slaves and himself.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He's simply not a warrior type. Subverted in the arc's finale, when he takes the Odium himself and gives Mack one hell of a fight.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: To humans, he's their untouchable Evil Overlord. To the rest of the Kree and his other alien guests, he's something of a joke.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: Being the Black Sheep, he's been shuffled off to a galactic backwater to oversee the remnants of humanity so as not to disgrace his family any further.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Unlike most of the Kree in the Lighthouse, he wears a nice suit with intricate patterns.
  • Slashed Throat: Subverted. Jemma slashes Kasius' cheek in "Fun & Games" and it leaves a scar.
  • The Sociopath: Has no qualms about killing a slave for getting a minor cut that's noticeable. He also plans on destroying the Lighthouse and all the humans in it after he amasses enough wealth to leave.
  • The Unfavorite: Turns out his brother runs the family empire on behalf of their father while he's in charge of nothing more than a backwater. If Kasius is to be believed, his father tried to have him killed by sending him on a suicidal military mission.
  • Villainous Breakdown: With elements of Despair Event Horizon. Losing his ability to breed more Inhumans started him on the path toward a breakdown, but finding Sinara dead on the Zephyr One caused him to lose all hope, talking to Sinara's corpse like she's still alive and demanding his doctor resurrect her like they do Inhumans (and killing the doctor when he points out that this is impossible). To the point that he drinks the Odium, a Psycho Serum that will turn a Kree into a berserker but will eventually kill him regardless of the outcome of fighting Team Coulson.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Despite his belief that his father sent him on a suicide mission, Kasius desperately wants his father's approval.
  • Wicked Cultured: He spends his time in his suite tending his plants and admiring beauty.

    Abby 

Abby

Species: Inhuman

Portrayed By: Ciara Bravo

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

A young Inhuman with the power to alter her molecular density, becoming superdurable or able to phase through solid objects.


  • Break the Cutie: She's a sweet, innocent girl who gains abilities that cause her pain when she can't control them. Just when it seems things are looking up, she gets pummelled in a death match, wins by crushing her opponent's heart, much to her horror, and ends up sold as a living weapon.
  • Intangibility: One of her abilities is to shift her density enough to phase through solid objects.
  • Power Incontinence: When introduced, she is not able to properly control her powers.
  • Super Toughness: Her other ability is increase her density so that it is as hard as lead.

    Ben 

Ben

Species: Inhuman

Portrayed By: Myko Olivier

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

One of the many Inhumans kept by Kasius to be sold. Ben is a telepath, allowing him to hear people's thoughts, as well as project his own to them.


  • Blessed with Suck: Thanks to Power Incontinence, he actually prefers when his inhibitor is on to prevent him from hearing people's thought all the time.
  • Hidden Depths: His earlier interactions with Daisy suggest he has completely given up trying to oppose the Krees and fully embraced their regime as a mean to ensure his family will be fine. It's later revealed he still kept part of his powers a secret to them, meaning he did, to some extent, still consider opposing them enough to keep a trump card.
  • Power Incontinence: His mind reading doesn't have a natural "off" switch; if not for his inhibitor, he would hear people's thought all the time.
  • Telepathy: He is capable of hearing other people's thoughts. Unbeknownst to Kasius, he also can project his own thoughts inside other people's minds, something he managed to keep for himself.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed by Sinara in only his second episode.

Portrayed By: Erika Ervin

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Species: Inhuman

Portrayed By: Natalia Cordova-Buckley

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (first appears in Episode 98: "Past Life")

A seer in Kasius's service.

->For tropes applying to her present-day self, see her entry on MCU: S.H.I.E.L.D. – Team Coulson.


  • An Arm and a Leg: Is missing both arms, like her comic counterpart.
  • Back from the Dead: Kasius brings the Seer to life whenever he has need of her services, and kills her when he doesn't.
  • Broken Bird: Future Yo-Yo, as a a result of watching Mack die, being constantly killed and revived by the Kree and the knowledge of being trapped in a Stable Time Loop in which she meets her past self, she has little hope and less of her usual spunk.
  • My Future Self and Me: She is a future version of Yo-Yo, the member of Team Coulson who finds her
  • My Greatest Failure: Claims that the team's insistence on saving Coulson's life was responsible for the Bad Future.

  • Older Than They Look: Going by Cordova-Buckley's birth year (1982), Elena is over a hundred years old by this point, and still looks as if she's in her thirties. This is attributed to Kasius killing and resurrecting her as needed.
  • Seer: Provides Kasius with information about Team Coulson that he could not otherwise possess. She is able to do this because she's already lived it.
  • Slashed Throat: Kasius kills her for the last time by cutting her throat with a small Kree-style blade.
