In her mortal life, Kormir was the leader of the Order of the Sunspears, a now-defunct organization, the purpose of which 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 Realm of Torment, and defeating the fallen god'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 is when Kormir realised the purpose of the gift. She absorbed Abaddon's power, becoming a goddess. She now makes her home in Abaddon's former realm, the Realm of Torment, though the current condition of the realm is not known, as it has been without Abaddon's influence for centuries yet still referred to as hellish dimension on a number of occassions.
As a relatively new god to the human pantheon, many ancient records don't mention Kormir at all.
