History

Origin

Bori[3] was a great chief who the legend raised to the status of deity, worshiped by the Hyborians (or Hybori).[2][8]

Hyborian Age

He became the war-god of the Hyperboreans, who sacrificed to him the souls of those slain in battle.[4]

He was also worshiped by Vanirmen,[9] and formerly by the Gundermen, who adopted Mitra in his place at the time they joined Aquilonia (that being their greatest concession).[10]

Age of Conan

King Tomar of Hyperborea allegedly sent more warriors to Borri than man could count.

Bori met with Conan in Brythunia, gazed upon the passing of the Choosers of the Slain and prophetized to Conan the reaping of kings.

He later observed from the sky as Kings Tomar and Brian dueling and slaying each other simultaneously, then summoned rain and sent the Choosers of the Slain, for the last time, as even Gods must die when their worshippers are all dead.[4] Afterwards, in the aftermath of the battle of Ravenfield, Borri turned his back upon mankind as few of his worshippers were left alive from the fighting. He then retreated into his frozen realm wth the Choosers of the Slain, apart from Skalla who had tasted life in taking it, and wanted it for herself. As she met Conan, Hylda came to force Skalla to follow Borri's departure, because as she would have killed Conan and many others by draining their lives.[5]
