- “What is Hell, but the total absence of Hope? The substance, the tactile proof of despair?”
Using prosthetic makeup, he disguised himself as a human, going around the streets of Los Angeles and offering flyers for his faux-shelter to runaway teenagers. He encountered the Slayer, Buffy Summers, and offered her his aid. She discovered his plot after discovering one of his victims, who had aged decades in a single day, and subsequently fell into his dimension when trying to save Lily Houston from being enslaved. Buffy fought Ken's guards, creating a minor riot so the other slaves could flee unnoticed. Ken stopped Buffy from fighting by grabbing Lily and holding a knife to her throat. Ken then gave a speech to discourage rebellion, only for Lily to push him off a platform mid-speech. As Buffy managed to get the slaves to the portal by lifting the portcullis protecting it, Ken caught up to her and pushed her when she was in the middle of lifting it, causing the portcullis to fall as Buffy passed to the other side and Ken's legs getting impaled by its prongs. Buffy then showed him her "impression of Gandhi" by bludgeoning him to death.
