The Confederacy

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

An alliance of several alien races that has allied itself with General Hale's HYDRA cell.
  • Alien Invasion: They claim that Earth is under threat from one, and will protect humanity in exchange for Gravitonium and Inhumans.
  • Arms Dealer: What they serve as to the greater galaxy in the future. Of course, those weapons are Inhumans.
  • Badass Army: According to Kasius. Ben's combat and telepathic abilities allowed him to go toe-to-toe with Melinda May, but Kasius said that Ben wouldn't have lasted a day in his father's army.
  • Badass Longcoat: Seems to be a style of the Confederacy; Faulnak and the Kree Watch all them wear them in the future, while Taryan, Kasius and Qovas tend toward Badass Longrobes.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: There are six member races of the Confederacy, and each race's leader is accorded an equal voice within meetings.
  • Hegemonic Empire: Made up of multiple alien races, but still a conquering alliance.
  • I Lied: They offered to protect the Earth in exchange for Inhumans and gravitonium. They have no intention of doing anything of the sort; they just wanted to extort humanity before Thanos got there.
  • Killed Offscreen: They are wiped out in-between Season 5 and 6 by the Chronicoms to show off their strength.
  • Psycho Serum: They are the manufacturers of the Odium, a concoction which will turn the user into a berserk rage, giving them incredible strength and all but eliminating any sensation of pain. However, the substance will eventually cause the user's heart to burst after a short amount of time, so it's used for a Last Stand.

Leadership

    Taryan 

Taryan

Species: Kree

Portrayed by: Craig Parker

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (first mentioned in Episode 94: "Fun & Games")

"The Earth is no longer a hidden blue gem. It belongs to another now. And yet it still has gifts to give."

The head of House Kasius and father of Kasius and Faulnak, an influential Kree aristocrat and leader of the Kree faction of the Confederacy.


  • Big-Bad Ensemble: In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Five, along with Glenn Talbot and General Hale. While Talbot as Graviton is the bigger threat and the one who is destined to crack the Earth apart, and Hale set the events in motion for Talbot becoming Graviton, Taryan is responsible for the problems of the season. He was the Greater-Scope Villain of the future arc, with Kasius serving as his representative, and the conflict with Hale's HYDRA cell, as stopping the Confederacy was Hale's goal. While he doesn't appear until "The One Who Will Save Us All", he does quickly establish himself as the big threat within the Confederacy, realizing how dangerous Talbot is and managing to manipulate Talbot into giving him Daisy Johnson, one of the most powerful Inhumans on Earth.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Implied; according to Kasius, Faulnak's preference for blades over firearms sounds very similar to their father.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: For the S.H.I.E.L.D. in Space arc in Season Five, as Kasius rules the Lighthouse in his name. He is also this in the "return to the present" arc, as the Confederacy controls Hale.
  • Insignificant Blue Planet: Most of the Kree consider Earth this, and mocked him for his obsession with it, but he apparently saw it as a "hidden blue gem", and gaining it was a big goal for the Confederacy.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being the real bad guy for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5, he ultimately survives the season.
  • Offing the Offspring: Kasius is convinced his father sent him on the military expedition to get him killed, as he never bothered to properly train Kasius in warfare.
  • Overarching Villain: For season 5, as he is the only antagonist that directly links every single event together, in both the future and the present.
  • Parental Favoritism: He favors Faulnak over Kasius, as Faulnak acts like a "proper" Kree warrior, while Kasius and Sinara retreated from a losing battle.
  • The Patriarch: The head of House Kasius.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Only appears on two episodes, but was more or less responsible for the problems of Season Five.
  • This Means Warpaint: Like many Kree, he has warpaint on his face. In a Call-Forward to his sons in the future arc, he has black warpaint around his eyes like Faulnak, but a white mark on his forehead like Kasius.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: His whereabouts in Season 6 are unknown. Its possible he suffered from Bus Crash, as the Chronicom Hunters have taken over at least one Confederacy Cruiser.

    Qovas 

Qovas

Species: Remorath

Portrayed By: Peter Mensah

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

The leader of the Remorath faction of the Confederacy, and Brigadier General Hale's handler.


  • Bait-and-Switch: His first appearance has him saying "Hail HYDRA", making it seem like he's secret leader of HYDRA remnants. Turns out he belongs to another organization that forced Hale's cell of HYDRA remnants into servitude, and he basically said the HYDRA salute just to mock Hale for trying to salvage her fallen organization.
  • Demoted to Dragon: Pretty much becomes Talbot's second-in-command after the latter demonstrates his power.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: Despite looking down on humans, he worked together with Brigadier General Hale.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He's an evil alien conqueror with Peter Mensah's deep voice.
  • Human Aliens: He's a Remorath, and can easily pass off as a human.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Hale reported to him.
  • Mouth of Sauron: He's acts as the Confederacy's mouthpiece to Hale.
  • You Have Failed Me: It never came to it, but he gives Hale the Odium in case she failed to complete the Confederacy's goals.
  • You Look Familiar: Despite being an alien, he surprisingly looks exactly like General Joe Greller from The Incredible Hulk, who was also portrayed by Peter Mensah.

    Crixon 

Crixon

Species: Astran

Portrayed by: Gabriel Hogan

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

The leader of the Astran faction of the Confederacy, considered to be the "wisest among us", according to Taryan.


  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: He looks human, except for the green skin, spiny eyebrows and red eyes.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Talbot absorbs him with the Gravitonium to make a new seat on the Confederacy for him.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: According to Taryan, he is the "wisest among us". It's implied Taryan did this to offer him up as a sacrifice because he had figured Talbot would kill someone to open a spot on the Confederacy.
  • Fantastic Racism: Dismisses Talbot because he's a "mere human".

    Estella 

Estella

Species: Unknown

Portrayed by: Nayo Wallace

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

One of the leaders of the Confederacy, she performs the opening ceremony at meetings.


  • Aerith and Bob: Her colleagues are "Taryan", "Qovas", "Crixon", and she has the human name of Estella.
  • Human Aliens: If it weren't for her yellow eyes, she could pass as a normal human woman of African descent.

Portrayed By: Samuel Roukin

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (first appears in Episode 94: "Fun & Games")

The brother of Kasius, and right-hand man of their father.


  • Asshole Victim: After continuously insulting and belittling Kasius and trying to convince Sinara to switch sides, Kasius stabs him in the back. It's hard to feel sorry for him.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: It seems like he's about to usurp control of the Lighthouse from his brother, only for Kasius to kill him in his second appearance when he tries to recruit Sinara to his army.
  • Big Brother Bully: As bad as Kasius is, Faulnak is even worse.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: He orders Maston-Dar to hunt down Daisy, Jemma and Fitz with primitive human weapons because he considers humans too inferior for Kree weapons.
  • Close-Range Combatant: He prefers blades over firearms, saying that he enjoys feeling the splash of blood on his body.
  • Number Two: To his father, serving as his right-hand man and heir-apparent.
  • Parental Favoritism: Faulnak is favored over Kasius, as he acts like a "proper" Kree warrior.

     Maston-Dar 

Maston-Dar

Species: Kree

Portrayed By: Remington Hoffman

Appearances: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (first appears in Episode 94: "Fun & Games")

A Kree Warrior and bodyguard of Faulnak.


  • Asshole Victim: While he doesn't talk much he treats everyone except Faulnak with little respect, and later gets killed by Sinara.
  • Blood Knight: If his insistence on hunting with human weapons didn't make it apparent, when he finally finds Daisy and FitzSimmons, he tells them to either give up or "entertain me", implying he would enjoy fighting them.
  • The Dragon: He is Faulnak's personal bodyguard and main enforcer who was tasked with capturing Quake and the other Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but he is killed by Sinara before accomplishing his mission.
  • The Quiet One: He only talks when it's necessary.
  • Willfully Weak: Maston-Dar requests a human weapon to use against Team Coulson, since he "finds it unfair hunting down primitives with anything but their own primitive armaments".
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Killed off in his second appearance by Sinara.

Remorath Members

    In General 

The Remorath

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

A nomadic race of alien scavengers and one of the member races of the Confederacy.


  • Anthropomorphic Zig-Zag: They can walk upright, but tend to lean towards the ground when moving around.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Remorath can extend jagged blades from below their arms, ala Baraka. Whether they're just hidden in their cloaks or are anatomically part of the Remorath is unknown.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wear black long coats, and can pretty much take anyone they come up against.
  • Dark Is Evil: They dress in all black, cause electrical lights to go out, and are utterly ruthless hunters.
  • The Dreaded: According to Deke, the humans of the Lighthouse were unable to fight them off; they just gave into the Remorath's demands and cleaned up the bodies after they left.
  • EMP: According to Deke, where ever they go, "darkness follows", and that isn't hyperbole: electronics shut down wherever the Remorath appear, leading Fitz to outright speculate that they generate an EMP field.
  • Immune to Bullets: Bullets just seem to inconvenience them at best. Even a direct hit from the Shotgun-Axe just slows one down.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Remorath soldiers wear masks over their faces.
  • Theme Naming: All named Remorath have names beggining with the letter "Q".

    Qolpakc 

Qolpakc

Species: Remorath

Portrayed by: Darwin Shaw

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

A Remorath lieutenant.


  • Mook Lieutenant: He holds a rank between Qovas and the rest of the Remorath soldiers, to judge from his longer cloak and his lack of mask.

    Qajax 

Qajax

Species: Remorath

Portrayed by: Andres Saenz-Hudson

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

A Remorath sent down to retrieve the Gravitonium from the Lighthouse.


  • Defiant to the End: After S.H.I.E.L.D. captures him, he refuses to tell them anything useful, just "promises to disembowl us".
  • Last Dance: Having been injured by Gravitonium-empowered Talbot, he takes the Odium to die a glorious death. Mack manages to subdue him long enough for SHIELD to chain him up, and he ends up dying from the Odium before he gets to die fighting.
