Non was a cloned Kandorian soldier who served under Major Zod on Earth after being created by the Orb.
Non was created when the original Non agreed to donate a sample of his blood for an experiment as a way for the Ruling Council to preserve the Kryptonian race should Rao's prophecy ever come true. After donating his blood, Non's status is unknown during the explosion of Kandor along with many other of his fellow soldiers.
Life on Earth
Tess' bodyguard comes in and reveals to Tess that he is not her bodyguard, he is a Kandorian working for Zod; He then gives Tess an ultimatum: tell him where the Blur is or die. Zod sits at a cafe, drinking espresso. He looks down at an envelope and opens it, revealing the blood-stained dog tag of the soldier he sent to kill Tess.
- The crest on his dog tags is the same as the crest for Faora and Vala. Presumably, this means that they are related.
- Amos Stern also appeared as an unnamed Kandorian in the episode Salvation. It is unknown if the two characters are related. According to dialogue in Kandor, Stern's character in Crossfire had been killed by Tess Mercer.
In the Comics
Non started out as an exclusive character to the 1980 film Superman 2, where he was one of General Zod's loyal followers sent to the phantom zone. Eventually he was adapted into the comics as another follower of Zod as a much more warrior-like character instead of just being a brute, respectively.
