- For the article about the 1980's version of this character, see Jackalman.
A ruthless and deranged psychopath, Kaynar is a member of the Jackal species who takes great pleasure in committing vile acts.
Kaynar was an inmate in a Dog Prison where he was incarcerated for multiple heinous crimes. After murdering a number of his fellow inmates, he was on his way to being placed in solitary confinement when Slithe and his Lizards broke him out.
Despite his borderline insanity, he ended up becoming an invaluable part of Mumm-Ra's army due to his bloodthirsty nature which made him a dangerous opponent for the ThunderCats.
Strengths[edit | edit source]
Kaynar is a very strong and agile fighter. His complete lack of fear or morals make him a formidable opponent who will not hesitate to attack or kill.
Kaynar also has a very keen sense of smell, which allows him to exactly pinpoint the location of his opponent without even the need to visually see them.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Due to his apparent insanity, Kaynar has very little self control and his actions are purely driven by instincts rather than forethought. As a result, he can be tricked by an intelligent opponent.
Weapons and Equipment[edit | edit source]
Kaynar wields a huge Halberd or Battle Axe and can swing it with great force.
