Lorqa was a Senior Member of the Utrom High Council that appeared in the IDW comics. Lorqa implores Emperor Quanin to cease his foolish expansion of the Utrom Empire. They’ve spread out beyond their ability to functionally colonize, draining their homeworld of all its precious resources. General Krang butts heads with Lorqa for disrespecting his father’s commands.
Later Krang has a talk with ex-Councilor Lorqa. He tells Quanin that Lorqa informed him all about their depleted resources, their dying homeworld and how the parades and festivities have been nothing more than a distraction to keep the populace ignorant.
