Lukara was a Klingon woman who lived in ancient times, the great love of Kahless the Unforgettable. Kahless and the Lady Lukara were married in the Great Hall of the village of Qam-Chee, which moments later was stormed by 500 of Molor's troops. The two of them were nearly killed, but vanquished their foes and thus began "the greatest romance in Klingon history".

My question is: does she stand with Kahless at the gates of Sto-Vo-Kor and welcome
the honored dead?

That which does not kill me, must have missed me.

I would think so; she fought well with Kahless and was his consort/Empress, I think it would be hard to justify keeping her out unless she had committed some act of betrayal. We have no knwledge of such behavior on her part, though little is known about her and any less-than-honorable acts she may have committed have been lost to history and political expediency. I would be interested to learn of any concrete information on her -- such an historically important character deserves to be fleshed out.

I must say I do not see either Kahless or Lukara standing by the gates of Sto’vo’kor welcoming the recently arrived dead like St. Paul and his secretary. I see them either “holding court” in a Great Hall of Sto’vo’kor or heading up ships in the Black Fleet.

I also see the great Lord and Lady as having established lives in Sto-Vo-Kor rather than simply being *Posted* at the gates so to speak...

That said, I am confidant that Lukara would be privy to pretty much any and all perks and esteem that Kahless would... Though if the 'Left Hand of Destiny' books were to be counted as at least a possible source, than it should be noted that in One of the "Visions" which Martok has, the appearance of the Great Lady, is fairly humble, and suggestive more of a real person living at a particular time in history, rather than of a glorified regal kind of presence... I can easily imagine both Lukara and Kahless as being somewhat "Down to Qo'noS" (Down to Earth), in personality and presentation... And likely life style as well...?

The thing about this thread that interests me is the idea that she would accompany her husband wherever he goes, which is an awfully human viewpoint of marraige.  Now maybe the concept translates pretty close to exactly between the two races...

     I would not go so far to say it's specific to Hyoomins.  What species would you like to cite has people believe that after death you will no longer love the one you are married to and will want to be away from them for all of enternity?    Really there are only two choices, go with Kahless or go somewhere else.  As said before there is no reason to suspect she'd end up in Grethor.  Unless you somehow envision a third realm in the Klingon afterlife for her.   The simplest explanation is yes, They are both grand warriors and she loves him and he loves her, so why would they not spend eternity together?  She will probably accompany him (if and) when he actually returns.  As far as we know he's prophesy could have referred to the clone, or could have been make up by the Clergy themselves.

[ In the novel "A Burning House" it describes Lady Lukara as keeping the memory of Kahless alive so he and his teachings are never forgotten. Lady Lukara will be standing with Kahless, not only as Kahless's Mate, but as an equal. Qapla']

Also, that Lady Lukara formed the Order of the Batleth from the most honorable of Kahless; warriors, to insure that that his teachings would be followed or they could expect a visit from the Order.
