We know Korath from Guardians of the Galaxy, he is the leader of the group of Kree in the opening that fight Star Lord for the orb. In the film he also appears to be a "high up" Kree member for Ronan's forces.

However, watching Captain Marvel last night he shows up in Yon-Rogg's squad in the Starforce.

Why did Korath leave the Starforce and how did he end up with Ronan?

I am mainly looking for answers from the MCU canon including interviews from the writers and directors but lacking any information there answers from the comics are fine too.

    This is speculative, so I can't post an answer, but the iteration of Ronan shown in CM is, according to exec producer Jonathan Schwartz, "an earlier version of Ronan, who has not become the radical zealot that we saw in Guardians of the Galaxy". It's possible that Korath shares these views, and follows Ronan because he's becoming more extreme in his outlook. – Dave Mar 13 '19 at 12:17

    Korath probably left the Starforce in SHAME!, after his FAILURE to capture VERS ON earth. – Paul D. Waite Mar 13 '19 at 12:30
