Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living... the life of a military commander onboard a spaceship.

Visiting... anywhere his work takes him. Mostly recently, that means Planet C-53—or, as it’s otherwise known, Earth.

Profession... commander of the Skrull army. The shape-shifting Skrulls have long been locked in a bitter war with the Kree Empire. The Kree see the Skrulls as devious provocateurs. Of course, the Skrulls have their own point of view on the war too.

Interests... making jokes at inappropriate times and avoiding Flerkens at all costs.

Relationship Status... a mystery. Talos is more focused on completing his missions than discussing his personal life.

Challenge... extracting information from Vers a.k.a. Carol Danvers. Carol is a member of the Kree Starforce army and secrets hidden in her memories might be the key to unlocking bigger mysteries at play. As Talos says of her mind, “It’s like a bad trip in there. I’m not surprised you can’t keep it straight. They really did a number on you.” After using advanced technology to extract fragments of Carol’s past, Talos heads to Earth to seek out a Light-Speed Engine. That means blending into the local cultural and infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. by posing as Director Keller.

Personality... fearsome, deceptive, and mysterious. Because of the Skrulls’ shapeshifting abilities, Talos is highly skilled in the art of spycraft and deception. Impersonating other people is a talent, not just a physical ability. Though he can be a formidable physical enemy, Talos prefers to use slightly subtler means whenever possible. He has an impressive gift for thinking on his feet in order to complete his missions. Yet despite his military background, Talos can be surprisingly laidback at times too. He understands that talking through issues can often be more effective than simply jumping into battle. There’s a heaviness to Talos’ soul, but the difference between his relaxed personality and how the Kree treat him could be the key to understanding the whole intergalactic war.
