According to the story, after Kahless had united the people and gave them the laws of honor, he saw his work completed. One night, he gathered his belongings and departed to a city's limits. The people wept and begged him not to leave; however, Kahless was undeterred. Speaking to the people, he said, "You are Klingons. You need no one but yourselves. I will go now to Sto-vo-kor. But I promise one day I will return." He pointed to a star in the sky, and instructed the people to look for him "on that point of light."
