His name is reconstructible in Middle Chinese as *kʰuâ-lâ, which transliterated either non-Turkic *Kvara or Old Turkic Qara.
During his brief rule, he defeated the Rouran khagan Yujiulü Dengzhu. He is recorded to have sent a tribute of 50,000 horses to Western Wei in May 553. He died the same year.
