- "I like your knife, I'm keeping it."
"...That was my favorite knife."
- ―Drax and Moloka Dar
Moloka Dar was a criminal imprisoned in the Kyln.
BiographyRonan the Accuser, Gamora, was brought to the prison. Seeking revenge for the death of friends and family killed by Ronan, he gathered a group to help him kill her. They kidnapped her in the middle of the night, and brought her to the showers to kill her; they were interrupted by Drax the Destroyer, who wanted to kill her himself for what Ronan did to his family. Moloka offered up his favorite knife to Drax hoping that Drax would forget that they were trying to kill Gamora without him. Before Drax could, Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord interrupted them and convinced Drax that if he left Gamora alive, Ronan would come for her, allowing Drax to fight Ronan. Drax agreed to this and left with Dar's favorite knife, much to Dar's sadness.
Quill, Gamora, and Drax would eventually flee from the Kyln, after which Ronan the Accuser and Nebula invaded the prison in search of Gamora. When they realized she had escaped, Ronan had every inmate and Nova Corps operative in the prison executed to cover their tracks, including Dar.
- In the comics, Moloka Dar appears as an alien and former prisoner of Kyln who helps Thanos by giving him information. This is referenced when Ronan refers to sources within the Kyln.
