Bio:
The events of Krugarr are most known in the Marvel Universe of 691 that is not the main continuity of 616.  However,  Krugarr was shown to exist within 616 in Quasar 39 (1992)  making it possible that he would have a similar life in many universes.

Krugarr is born and lives on the world of Lem. His species the Lem have the same name as his home world. The Lem are a worm like species that have no mouths but can communicate by creating vibrations sound that can be heard by humans.  The Lem are said to be very long lived creatures and the true age of Krugarr is not known.

Krugarr met with Doctor Stephen Strange in the 22nd Century and agreed to become his apprentice.  Krugarr becomes the new Sorcer Supreme.  While Doctor Strange is training Krugarr he uses the title of Ancient One similar to his former master.  Doctor Strange is killed in a battle with Dormammu leaving the mantle of Sorcerer Supereme to Krugarr.

As the Sorcerer Supreme Krugarr has access to many of the same spells and artifacts of Doctor Strange and must also guard the world against Dormammu whom he battles.  Krugarr divides his time between the Magic Mansion of Doctor Strange and his home world of Lem.

In the 31st Century he has dealing with the Guardians of the Galaxy and Galatic Guardians.  He is a friend with Hollywood (Wonderman in the 691 universe).  He heals Major Victory after the latter was shot in the head and he also send Hollywood to help evacuate the world of Mainframe after that world is caught in a disaster.

Krugarr has difficulty finding his own apprentice after his preferred choice the Inhuman Talon fails to take his studies seriousily.


Powers:


As a Lem Krugarr has amazing longevity that far exceeds the human life capacity.  This longevity could also be enhanced by his magical gifts making Krugarr nearly ageless.

Krugarr is considered high intelligent and a fast learner much like Doctor Strange himself.

Krugarr has access to the spells and artifacts of the sorcerer supreme Doctor Strange and can thus summon much of the same spells.


MCU
Krugarr appears in the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 as a red alien who is friends with Stakar Ogord aka Starhawk.  Krugarr is a CGI character and is not played by any actor.  No actor voices for Krugarr as he communicates by visually creating a mandela spell in the film.

Krugarr appears in a short scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. He is part of the small group of former heroes led by Stakar. Along with Krugarr are Charlie 27, Mainframe, Aleta, and Martinex.
This version of Krugarr seems to comminicate by using spells to create pictures of light between his fingers.  He uses this ability to show enthuisiasm for rejoining with his team mates in a scene at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2.

James Gunn elaborated on his Facebook how Krugarr was designed and added into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.  Gunn is definetly not ignoring the magical side of Krugarr.  I will be curious to see if any connection between Krugarr and Doctor Strange is shown in Avengers Infinity War or Avengers 4.

When designing creatures and spaceships and planets and prosthetics for a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, we go through many hundreds of designs - thousands in all. For instance, I woke up one morning with a realization I wanted to put Krugarr into a post-credits scene of Guardians Vol. 2 (I'll leave it at that for those of you who haven't seen the movie). Krugarr is a little-known character in the Marvel universe, but I loved the idea of an utterly alien, mute character who was only able to speak through interstellar emojis. He (she?) does speak more conventionally in the comics, but I wanted to add a more extraterrestrial strain to the character so that she (it?) could be a few more steps removed from humanity than Groot. In the comics, Krugarr is also a sorcerer, so it could be a way of adding an occult element into the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
