As the only son of the previous olo'eyktan and tsahìk, Ka'nat was always destined for leadership of the Aranahe clan, and was taught to always put the needs of the clan first. Early in his teen years he met the nosy Asahe, who he gradually fell in love with. When he became olo'eyktan, Asahe became the next Tsahik. Years later, the union brought forth their daughter, Etuwa. The bond between mother and daughter was strong, while Ka'nat remained slightly more distant as a father.
After Asahe was killed in an RDA ambush, the heartbroken Ka'nat put the well-being and safety of his clan above all. He has been the olo'eyktan for a long time and is sure he knows what's best for his clan. The traditions of old have always served them well, whereas change - which his daughter Etuwa promotes - can potentially lead to chaos. Ka’nat fears the war, knowing that his clan of artists is ill-equipped to fight the RDA. Above all else, he fears losing Etuwa the way he lost Asahe. He speaks with an elevated, authoritative voice, as if acting as an obvious vessel of reason and truth.
