Real Name: Hek-Tor Kur
While trapped in the dark dimension of Despondos, Hordak discovered the power to project his spirit back to Eternia. In this form, he made contact with the banished Prince Keldor. Through dark magic and manipulation, Hordak was able to entice Keldor to forsake his birthright and become an Overlord of Evil. He taught Keldor the ways of black magic and eventually, in return for Keldor's promise to release him from Despondos, saved Keldor's life by merging him with a powerful demon. In his Spirit form, Hordak projects his essence to Eternia, turning Keldor to the side of evil.
