He helped the crippled wanderer make the demon bear. Later, wracked by guilt, Hord was determined to make things right by destroying the bear at the Mountain of the World Spirit. He followed Torak and attempted to kill the bear, which later meant his death.
He is described as strong and good at fighting, with flashing red hair and colorful clothes. Hord is often seen chewing and biting his thumbnails, until they became nothing but oozing sores. Hord was killed by an snowslide caused by the World Spirit while fighting with Torak.
