Nnamdi is the son of King Solovar and Boka. He has followed in his father's footsteps to become ruler of Gorilla City. After Solovar was assassinated, Ulgo became king, however it was discovered that Ulgo was involved in the murder. Nnamdi took over the thrown and has strayed from his father's beliefs.
Where Solovar was progressive and open-minded towards the human world, Nnamdi is an isolationist, believing it is best for his people to stay separated from the outside world as much as possible. He has brought his people back to a more tribal, allowing nature and technology to coexist. He is also not as friendly towards the Flash as his father was. At one point he even erased the location of Gorilla City from Wally West's mind in order to stop him from visiting.
