Kihar the Tormentor is a powerful Chaos Sorcerer from the Warriors of Chaos. He becomes available to Norsca and Wintertooth as a unique hero if they gain allegiance to the Serpent, by razing settlements in that God's name.

Kihar uses spells from both the Lore of Fire and the Lore of Metal. He is automatically max rank, and you cannot ordinarily open his Details of Skills pages to change anything. However, he will equip items that he receives from winning battles.

Kihar the Tormentor is one of the very few Legendary Heroes in the game. Additionally, he typically has a 95% success chance rate with all hero actions, making him quite a powerful force.


Those Champions of Chaos who seek mastery over the magical arts are known as Chaos Sorcerers, and they are madmen and malcontents all. Chaos Sorcerers wield the wild energies of entropy itself, reshaping reality to better serve their whims and those of their dark masters. A word and a gesture from a Chaos Sorcerer can strip a man's flesh from his bones, force a lover to murder his beloved, or cause a regiment of soldiers to burst into flame. They are amongst the most awful and depraved of all servants of Chaos, for they long ago sold their souls in exchange for the heady elixir of pure power. Where many of the world's wizards, such as those taught by the Colleges of Magic in Altdorf, glean their arcane skill from long years of painstaking research, a Chaos Sorcerer's understanding of the Winds of Magic is instant and innate. However, without the patience and wisdom that such study brings, a Chaos Sorcerer lacks due wariness and respect for the ultimate dangers of magic, and so begins an inexorable descent into deformity and madness. Many are the paths that lead to this ultimate fate, but most often, the Chaos Sorcerer seeks to expand his magical powers or harness more of the occult by simply bartering away another fraction of his soul, losing a little more of his humanity in the process. Before long, the aspirant feels his whole body and mind twist and alter, and as the gnawed remnants of his soul are finally devoured, he is plunged into the whirlpools of insanity, leaving behind nothing of the man who was.
