(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#15 - BTS) - Kronak was at the Fall People's village when the other-dimensional Sheenarian invasion forces arrived in the Savage Land. Though the Fall People tried to mount a defense, they were no match for their armed assailants. Most of the Fall People were slaughtered by the invaders. While Kronak and several others survived, only Khonsah managed to escape.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#16 - BTS) - Kronak and the remaining survivors were taken prisoner by the Sheenarian army who planned to use them as slave labor.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#17 (fb) - BTS) - Imprisoned in the Sheenarian encampment, Kronak noticed a group of the aliens ride to the east, to take the village of the Zebra People.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#17) - Forced to carry a pile of wood across the land Kronak walked besides Seesha, who was worried sick about the fate of her husband chieftain Tongah, fearing he was dead. Kronak tried his best to console the woman but secretly shared her fears. They were unaware Tongah had in fact joined forces with Ka-Zar to stop the Sheenarians. Kronak noted the invaders had nearly conquered the entire valley even as they were moving in on the Zebra People.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#19) - Determined to escape, Kronak and Seesha waited for nightfall and used a rock to break the chains that bound them to the ground while the other prisoners were sleeping. Even though the duo was still bound together, they could now move. They attempted to sneak away through the jungle's thick foliage in hopes of reaching the Zebra People. However, a Sheenarian sentry spotted them and fired his lasergun at them. The beam hit Kronak who was killed instantly. With only a smoldering skeleton remaining, Seesha was now free from the chain that bound the two together. This allowed her to successfully escape into the jungle.
