Anton Karidian was an alias assumed by Governor Kodos, also known as "Kodos the Executioner", after a massacre on Tarsus IV in 2246. Living as such, Anton Karidian was a traveling actor with the Karidian Company of Players. Karidian was the star and director of this troupe of itinerant actors.
In 2257, his Karidian Company of Players was sponsored by the Galactic Cultural Exchange Project. For the next nine years, Anton Karidian toured with this company as they visited official installations.
In 2266, the Karidian Company visited Planet Q. One of the residents of that world was Thomas Leighton, who recognized Karidian as Kodos. He asked James T. Kirk to investigate, as Kirk was one of the nine people who had actually seen Kodos. After a series of murders and attempted murders, Kirk was convinced that Karidian was Kodos and was killing witnesses to cover his identity. In actuality, it was Lenore who had been committing the crimes, and when she tried to kill Kirk, Karidian jumped in the line of fire as she fired a phaser, killing him.
