Tuzun Thune was a member of the Elder Race.[3][2]

Pre-Cataclysmic Age

During the Pre-Cataclysmic Age, he lived in the House of a Thousand Mirrors, by the Lake of Visions, in Valusia.[2]

He was killed by Brule.[5]

Hyborian Age

During the Age of Conan, he claimed to be the "last scion" of the Elder Race, returning as a reflection in a mirror.[5]


Tuzun Thune, elderly in appearance, was likely thousands, if not tens of thousands, of years old when first glimpsed, and he survived another 8000 years living as a reflection in his mirrors. He could exit his mirrors if he could trade places with another sorcerer.[citation needed]


Thune's life is depended on his mirrors. If they are broken, he would die.[6]


Virtually all of Tuzun Thune's magical power was derived from his mirrors, though the mirrors' origins are unknown. They may be magical artifacts that he collected, or regular mirrors that he empowered with his own magical energy, or a combination of the two; nonetheless, without one of his mirrors, he was virtually powerless. Each mirror seemed to have a different power. Some mirrors could show images of the past and the future, or of other places, times, or beings of significance to the viewer. Some mirrors could open portals to other realms, allowing beings to pass to or from those realms. Some mirrors could capture the image of one gazing into the mirror, transporting that person and trapping him or her into the mirror itself. Some mirrors could entrap the souls of others within the mirror. Some mirrors could transport others through time. Some mirrors created mirrored duplicates of beings whose image he has captured on the mirror: these duplicates possess virtually all of the skills and abilities, and perhaps even the memories, of the originals, though it might be that Thune magically read the minds and/or memories of others and transferred this information into the doppelgangers. In addition, these doppelgangers seemed to gain stronger personalities and independence the longer they remained in existence, to the point that they might defy or even assault Tuzun Thune.[citation needed]
