I gotta say when he regained his memory, he did seem pretty pissed. I suppose even if you have a very minimal amount of emotions, waking up and realizing someone's used your body to kill the good, the evil, the weak and the beautiful for two thousand years can piss just about anyone off. Maybe even my toaster.
But I think you're right, he made an informed decision to exist the way he thought was right. Perhaps he's just emotionally handicapped. He doesn't completely lack emotions, they're just not fully functional, but he learned to make full use of them. He just has to remind everyone that he doesn't feel the same way everyone else does with his constant the-dead-do-not's, which is probably why he always looks so irritated when he tries to explain to the living that he doesn't function the way they expect.

If he didn't have emotions of some sort, he wouldn't feel protective of Stan and Xev.

Definitely. Maybe defending them from utter evil could be written off to logic, but collecting the remains of Zev's protein to "bring her home" is definitely an emotion-driven act.

Maybe if I give it shelter from its vicious master, it's gonna jump into hell's pit for me someday.

I don't know what it is that attracts people to Pattinson. To each their own, I suppose. Strangely enough, he's one of the reasons I never wanted to watch Twatlight, I find him really inattractive. But that's just me, and I'm obviously a minority here.

It's up to everyone's interpretation of course, but I prefer to think of Kai as having no emotions of his own (in the traditional sense of that word).

I don't think he has emotions per se but he reacts to the emotions of others.

kai was showing emotion in tunnels when he was captured by the judicators. He was definately frustrated. And he shows emotions at other times too but I can't remember them off hand. its difficult for a human to write about a character with out emotions becuase we have them.

The stimuli Kai reacts to is the right/wrong concept, but he usually does not do anything unless asked by one of his crew members. In later episodes he does seem motivated like when he sought out Vlad.

I went with other He does act and react with what is going on around him and the people they meet. If he is approached in a violent manner he will react the same way. But approached with out out threat he is pretty chill. He uses logic to understand his actions and choices of others. He is the voice of reason when he feels Xev and Stan are doing wrong. He does seem to have "feelings" from time to time you can see bits of them. Only thing is he does not express them the same way as a live person would. But he does care and want the best for his diffusional family members. So in a very ironic kinda way he is the most "alive" for been dead and all. He shows aggravation when Xev and Stan act stupid lol you see it in his body language and his harsh tone he use on them. You can see the wheels turning as he thinks up a plan to rescue or understand the problem they are in. Also he seems disappointed in Xev when she tells him "I love you kai" and goes chase live men for sex. He shows distress when he is unsure if they will live or die. For a dead guy he sure asks many questions when he needs clarification or is interrogating someone. Kai is way more complex then he think he is. If he would keep saying the dead do not things you'd think he was "alive".

Well, I think he has them (at least after he got his memories back), but they are burried deep inside. Why else should he have said to Zev (after saying he will stay besides her till the rest of his protoblood is gone) "It is what I want." "Wanitng" is an emotion...
But I must agree - as I stated many times before - after Zev changed into Xev, almost no emotional reaction comes from him. When they are on Earth, small hints of them come up again.
So I think, he has emotions, but none could make them express except of Bluehaired Zev. (and his spirit ... but he died then, so I will not count that)

yes we have had this chat of Zev vs Xev when it comes to kai's like who the best lol. he seemed to care a bit for Xev when they were on earth. But before that he was always cold and seemed very annoyed with Xev. He loved blowing her off hahaha he didn't like it when she acted to "cheap" and disrespected herself when she was chasing tail. Or when she leads him on and was head over heels over him till she found a live man. He seemed sad every time she did that to him. When she was telling Kai maybe she should do Stan since the universe's will end. Kai's faces looked pained as he answered her "Stan will be happy to hear that" paraphrasing big time. I was like noooooooooo!!!!!! Why would you tell him that lol. Followed by can't you see when he is starting to warms upish to the idea of liking Xev she blows it. Then he gives her the cold shoulder and is very short with her after and doesn't want to play her game. Till she acts mature once again and plays more mind games with the dead man for kicks :u055a:

That's exactly my point! I was upset several times for her behaviour and I more than once imagined what could have happened if Zev had asked Kai to take the soap while her shover-scene... *yummy*. Or even think of "boomtown" I am sure he would have done something with Xev (just think of hands and a delicious mouth) :c030a:...*sigh* ....
We won't find that out anymore but I felt sad for it ended up this way for both of them. When I first saw season one over here it was like a "revelation" to me, when Zev finally kissed Kai! Then I had to wait some years to hear there is a series about Lexx not only the films and finally it was on German TV... and then my "card-house of beautiful dreams" crashed with Xev and the more and more growing distance between them. I could see the 4th season this year and my bad feelings about this became true in his sacrifice. At least some of the love I thought it was gone long time before had shown up in the last series but it never was this emotional than on first season (and this even though Kai was alive in last episode and HAD feelings)...

*sigh*

I prefer to think that in Season 1 Kai seemed slightly more motivated because of the Prophecy and the obligation it represented.
When he said he wanted to spend the rest of his protoblood with Zev, he was controlled by the essence, so I'd take that one with a pinch of salt.
I believe his "emotions" are hollow echoes of what he remembered emotions to be - and reflections of whatever attitudes people displayed towards him.

I think Kai's 'emotions' are like the food displays I used to see all the time in Korea.  You would walk into a restaurant and they would have all this gorgeous mouthwatering food displayed on the counter or in display cases.  You would want to just dig right in, the only problem was the food was fake.  Usually a plastic sculpture skillfully painted to mimic the dishes on the menu and let you see what the would look like.

That is Kai's emotions-not real but a skillful imitation of the real thing.  When you think about it, as a divine assassin there were probably times when he would need the ability to trigger emotion in others to obtain his objective.  The intellectual concept would be there and he would be able to mimic emotions without feeling emotions.
