Ever since Krypton was announced we’ve heard very little, other than the idea that it will connect to Man of Steel and that SyFy had officially green-lit the pilot. Now we may have found out a bit more in terms of dialogue as a list of the key characters on the series has been released.
Krypton’s lead characters include:
SEG-EL – described as athletic, quietly confident, and in his 20s, an older version of this character appeared in Starman #51 alongside his son Jor-El (Superman’s father).
LYTA ZOD – a beautiful twentysomething, Lyta is a reluctant warrior and has a familial tie to eventual Superman villain General Zod.
VAL-EL – The genius grandfather of Seg, he defied death by entering the Phantom Zone and believes in space exploration.
ALURA ZOD – Lyta’s mother, she too is obviously related to General Zod in some way.
DEVE-EM – A “bad boy” in his twenties, this chisele character was a reluctant ally to the Legion of Superheroes once upon a time, but has clashed with Superboy and Superman on a handful of occasions as a villain.
As you can see both characters are connected directly with Superman and General Zod, it also looks like they are grabbing a bit of DC Universe history to really make the series work as more than just another prequel series.
