Spoiler alert: The following text contains spoilers relating to the story of Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire.

You carry with you the blessings of all the gods. Never forget that.

— Kormir

Kormir is the goddess of order, spirit, and truth. She is the newest of the Six Gods, having risen to power in 1075 AE upon the defeat of the fallen god Abaddon. As a relatively new god to the human pantheon, many ancient records won't mention Kormir at all, except for those that have been revised or written after her ascension.


Early years[edit]

In her mortal life, Kormir was the leader of the Order of the Sunspears, an organization whose purpose was to protect Elona. During her tenure, she oversaw the release of Palawa Joko; recruited Sunspears from Tyria, Cantha and the Battle Isles; and led Istan into war against Kourna. It was during this war that she was captured at Gandara where The Hunger, one of Abaddon's demons, rendered her blind.

After venturing into the Realm of Torment and defeating Abaddon's generals Vizier Khilbron and Shiro Tagachi, the Sunspears turned to the gods for aid in defeating Abaddon. The representatives of the gods only gave Kormir a gift, the nature of which was unclear. After his defeat, Abaddon's power threatened to run out of control and bring about Nightfall regardless, which was when Kormir realized the purpose of the gift. She absorbed Abaddon's power, becoming a goddess.

Following her ascension, Kormir left her mortal companions with comforting words of wisdom and then departed into the Mists. She made her home in Abaddon's former realm, the Realm of Torment. Word of her deeds spread, and a new clergy rose to honor her as the Goddess of Truth.

Path of Fire[edit]


And so it came to pass that Spearmarshal Kormir, hero of all Elona, was pulled into the inky blackness surrounding the God of Secrets. And though her sight had been robbed, her body wracked, and her spirit flayed, she remained resolute.

And so was she joined within the Realm of Torment by fearless allies and great heroes, who stood at her side as she sought to thwart Nightfall. Together did they battle through Fear, and Anguish, and Madness, until at last they stood before the face of the imprisoned god; he who had challenged the Five and lost; he who threatened to break the chains placed upon him by the other gods; he who now sought to bring Nightfall to the world: the dark god, Abaddon.

And so did Kormir and her allies engage the dark god in titanic battle. And through her power, and their combined skill and bravery, and the blessings of the Five True Gods, did Abaddon at last face his ultimate defeat.

Yet the power of a god cannot be destroyed, and Kormir, making a choice that only a mortal could make, did take upon herself the mantle of the Goddess of Truth, with all its power and responsibility, all its dominion and duties.

And so by mortal hands did a new immortal enter creation.
