Dormin is a great deity who once ruled the ‘Forbidden Land’ until a new religion took hold. The new religion was strongly against horns, dark spirits, and resurrection. The people now seeing him as ‘evil’ split and sealed away his essence into sixteen colossi.
He is freed when Wander kills all sixteen colossi but is destroyed when Lord Emon throws the ‘Sacred Sword’ into a pool of water at the back of the shrine which creates a vortex that engulfs Dormin.
Throughout the game he speaks to the player with a male and female tone of voice, but as the player defeats the colossi the female tone slowly disappears and the male tone increases.
