After escaping from Planet Doom, Keith and company wound up back on Arus and met Princess Allura and Coran in the Castle of Lions. He and his team were organized into the Voltron Force,[2] and Keith led the team, briefly taking control of the Green Lion before turning it over to Pidge and becoming the pilot of the Black Lion. [3]

Keith led his team throughout King Zarkon's attempts to conquer Arus and destroy Voltron, dealing several defeats.

Keith developed a personal rivalry with Lotor, whom he first met face to face in a duel a few miles from the castle. [4]
