The individual known only as 'Sensitive Klegg' (a name given to him by undercover Judge Dirty Frank) was a Klegg security guard employed by Overdrive Inc. and its CEO, Enormo Overdrive. He turned against his employers in order to assist Dirty Frank because Frank was the first person ever to show any faith in him as an individual, and he saved Frank from certain death on the Moon shortly before Frank successfully sabotaged Overdrive's floating city Luna 2, which was attacking Mega-City One.
Luna 2 sank into the polluted waters of the Black Atlantic, but Sensitive Klegg survived and months later assisted Judge Dredd in escaping from the sunken remains of the city after dealing with another threat to Mega-City One. In return Chief Judge Hershey granted him Mega-City citizenship.
Sensitive Klegg lived for a while in Mega-City One but found it difficult to fit in, thanks to a prejudiced population who thought he wanted to eat them. Also, the fact that he has an "abiding love of human literature," writes poetry, likes the works of Louisa May Alcott (it's a safe bet he cried when Beth died) and is a huge fan of Emily Brontë would only serve to distinguish him still further from the rest of the citizens. (The majority of the humans in Mega-City One do not have an abiding love of human literature. The most they read in an average day is the label on a packet of munce saying 'tear here'.)
When his former employers Overdrive, Inc. put out a contract on his life which the Hunters Club tried to fulfil (causing the Klegg to fight and almost forget his non-homicidal nature), Judge Dredd saved Sensitive but then told him the city was no longer a safe place for him to be. Sensitive Klegg joined a Helltrekker convoy (who were glad to have a fearsome-looking alien as part of their crew) and went to seek happiness in the Cursed Earth.

Sensitive Klegg appears to have been a very atypical member of his species, most of whom are homicidal monsters. That being said, it is worth noting that even the most savage Kleggs have a gift for extemporised verse, albeit of a rather bloodthirsty nature, chanted in unison. Perhaps Sensitive is what happens when the 'poetry' bit of the Klegg brain, through some genetic quirk, gets turned up to eleven. Sensitive could be the Klegg equivalent of a human with autism, albinism or perfect pitch.
