Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

"T'Kuvma knew that the most powerful empire was a united empire. Twenty-four houses working as one. He believed the quickest way to bring us together was war with the Federation. But in this fight, we have lost our way. A new leader is needed to fulfill my lord's vision. I am that leader."
L'Rell, 2257[src]

L'Rell was a female Klingon and follower of T'Kuvma.


Her father was a kinsman of T'Kuvma and a member of the House of T'Kuvma, while her mother was of the House of Mo'Kai. She considered herself to be part of both houses.

In 2256, L'Rell served aboard T'Kuvma's flagship, the Sarcophagus. Prior to the Battle of the Binary Stars, L'Rell detected several starship that were coming to reinforce the USS Shenzhou's position. She then watched as Voq lit the Beacon of Kahless. Following the Klingons' initial victory, L'Rell and Voq then proclaimed T'Kuvma as the "Unforgettable" to the Klingon High Council.(DSC episodes: "The Vulcan Hello", "Battle at the Binary Stars")

In 2257, L'Rell had grown weary of the fractured state of the Empire and sought to unite the Klingon people under her leadership. To that end. she took control of the detonator of a high-yield explosive device - one which had been planted by Philippa Georgiou deep within a volcano on Qo'noS - and used it to force the members of the Klingon High Council to accept her as their new chancellor and end the Federation-Klingon War of 2256-2257. Chancellor L'Rell ordered the Klingon military to break off its attack on the Federation and return to Klingon space, thus bringing the war to an end. (DSC episode: "Will You Take My Hand?")
