      I think the monks of Shao-Lom came to Titan relatively recently. I'm pretty sure this places it after the repopulation. But I don't think an exact timeline is established. And Titan things have been retconned so much, who can tell.

    It was in Giant-Size Avengers #4 that the Eldest Cotati on Earth revealed that the priests who had separately raised Mantis in Vietnam and Heather on Titan could "trace their lineage" to the pacifist Kree. Whether that meant that the priests themselves were Kree or that they had adopted the beliefs that had been brought to Earth's solar system by the Priests of Pama was not made clear at the time. As far as I know, no details about how the priests came to Titan have EVER been revealed.

To me the wording made it sound like it meant that the priests who trained Mantis and Moondragon were part Kree...but not pure Kree. Like the priests established these half-breed communities wherever they settled. The Supreme Intelligence was only sending two Priests per world so I assume the priests offspring had to mate with the local inhabitants.

    However, there is an FF story in which Mantis battled blue-skinned Priests of Pama for her son. I think it was stated that one of them had been one of her teachers. Of course, that doesn't make much sense since her origin had shown that the priests who raised her in Vietnam were not blue-skinned. Then again, that whole story suffered due to the fact that all of the ancient Kree were given Caucasian skin tones due to an error by the colorist.

I'm willing to allow for the coloring error.

One thought that occurred to me. I believe the explanation for the pink Kree has been that they were the results of pure blue Kree having children with non Kree.

May the priests who left Hala weren't white...but maybe their grandchildren were. The Priests were breeding in various different planets and all were supposed to possess life. Maybe their children took indigenous spouses and the galaxy became infested with half-breed Pink/White Kree.
