The King is Ilana's father and the former ruler of Galaluna. He sent his daughter to Earth through a rift gate along with Lance and Octus to keep her safe from the Mutraddi invaders. He is currently being kept as General Modula's prisoner and is being tortured relentlessly.
As shown in the episode Escape from Galaluna, when Lance reported that the Mutraddi were preparing an invasion, the King refused to believe it, believing instead that Lance was trying to cover up his irresponsible actions and disobedience. Fed up with Lance's constant court-martials and arrests, he finally told Lance enough was enough, leaving him in his prison cell. Once the invasion actually occurred, the king was distraught, and realized he was wrong for not listening to Lance when he had the chance. He fought relentlessly along with his Galalunian soldiers in defense of the Palace, utilizing heavy laser cannons and rifles.
His daughter Ilana, having been off with her bodyguard Hobbs doing a ribbon cutting ceremony, makes her way back to the palace during the invasion in a hijacked Mutraddi tank. Shocked at seeing his daughter come back in the middle of the battle, he calls some of his soldiers back and they retreat to the believed safety of the inner palace. But inside of the palace, they are ambushed by more Mutraddi. Out of the blue, after escaping prison and defeating one of the betrayers, Lance jumps into action shooting and defeating the numerous Mutraddi. After being informed by Lance that it isn't only just an invasion, but a Coup, the King leads Lance and Ilana to an Escape rocket.
Once they reach the room, Octus appears, being only a floating robotic sphere. With Lance and Ilana waiting for him to come along, he explains to the two that he cannot. Both are shocked to hear this: the king explains to them that since Ilana is the immediate heir to the throne, she must be taken away and protected, because without her, there is no future for Galaluna, while he, as king, must stay and protect his home world. Anguished at the thought of leaving him to his possible fate, Ilana weeps over her father's stay and proceeds into the pod. The king then orders Lance to protect Ilana, no matter the cost. He then states that he knew Lance could always be the person who he knew he could be, and that his father would be extremely proud of him. He gives Lance a Manus activation watch and sets the two off into space. He sends them through the rift gate, which continues from the first episode of Sym-Bionic Titan; Escape To Sherman High.
He is later captured and imprisoned, but how this occurs is not shown.
The King was shown as a kind man but also a courageous leader. It is clear he will do anything to protect his daughter Ilana, so much so that he sent her to another planet to hide her. The King also shows his kind nature in his kingdom as it is shown as a prospering nation/planet.
The King displays courage in Escape from Galaluna when he leads a group of palace guards against the invading Mutraddi army. Instead of hiding behind his throne and allowing his generals to lead he is on the front line with a weapon fighting for his planet, a sign of a true leader instead of a boss/tyrant.
Ilana is the King's daughter. They both love each other greatly.
It is unknown who his wife is/was, but Ilana's existence proves he had a wife at some point.
General Modula is one of the greatest military leaders of Galaluna and an old friend that was once thought dead. When Modula reveals himself to be alive and responsible for the invasion of Galalunia, The King refused to believe that the man he knew since childhood is a traitor. But overtime in being in Modula's captivity, it's likely that The King now deems his former friend as an enemy.
Edward is one of the greatest minds of Galaluna and an old friend who has been missing since he jumped into the Rift Gate. In the episode "Shadows of Youth", The King revealed that he made a promise to Edward that he'll take care of his son if anything happens to him.
The king knew a great deal of Edward's personality traits, such as which his friend would remain silent when the man couldn't do things his way. But despite their disagreements, The King always believed that Edward had the best intentions.
Being the son of Edward, The king made a promise his friend that he'll look after the boy if anything happens to him.
However, due to Lance's inner turmoil, impulsiveness, and constantly getting himself into trouble, their relationship is shown to be strained.
In "Shadows of Youth", The King bailed Lance out of prison on the account to spend the summer rebuilding the damaged academy.
