In high school, Karl played tennis and soccer,[2] was the head of the debate team, and started a gaming club. He has said he is on the asexual spectrum[3], and has ADHD[4] and autism.[5] He has a cat named Grey. Karl had been attending college, and 5 weeks before he was to graduate he had been offered a job with MrBeast. This led to him dropping out of college and taking the opportunity.

Karl was originally a camera man for MrBeast, and could sometimes be seen in the background of his videos. After Jake The Viking left the crew in 2020, Karl became an on-screen member. He has since then participated in many different challenges, commonly being mocked for coming in second place so often. Karl is still a part of MrBeast and has been recently featured in videos. He seems to be closest with Chris and Chandler, often being seen hugging the two and also kissing their cheeks on the occasion.

Karl gained popularity from MrBeast, and soon was invited to join the Dream SMP. He first joined the server on August 26, 2020. Karl gained a large following from joining the Dream SMP, and he is very well liked among the fans.

During the Manburg v. Pogtopia war, Karl is seen switching sides often between Manberg and DreamSMP. After the war that blew up Manberg, Karl seems to join El Rapids (previously known as Mexican L'manberg) which was founded by Quackity, Sapnap (Co-founder), and GeorgeNotFound (member). He is also known to be friends with Nihachu on the server, and seemingly has a rivalry with Ranboo.

Karl's character has an interesting role in the lore. With his series, Tales from the SMP, Karl is seen to be a time traveler trying to correct the past. There have been many different stories to this series showing different time periods all contributing to the canon lore.

Minecraft Championship

Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft tournament for YouTubers and streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which ten teams of four compete in a series of eight minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. In the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of "Dodgebolt" to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having fewer points than the runner-up.
