Well, the way I see it - and I often work with different IP - is that you should be all right using Krenn - as long as you don't change the character.

This means, if Krenn doesn't get any character development, and nothing happens to him that would matter outside of your story, it counts more as a cameo and nothing more.
You cannot, however, let him do anything major or let things happen to him that would give him psychological trauma. i.e. you can bump into him and talk but you cannot free him from prison or something.

The same thing should be true for all other characters, except that when using one that had a real life actor, you may not use that actor's likeness - that's no problem though as you can't do that anyway.
