Biography

Master of Mystic Arts

Introduced to Doctor Strange

In 2016, Karl Mordo brought Stephen Strange to the Ancient One at Kamar-Taj as Strange hoped she could mend his damaged hands. When Strange first saw Hamir, he mistook him for the Ancient One due to his preconceived ideas.[1]

Hamir with the Ancient One and Stephen Strange

Hamir and other Masters were present during an exercise which involved novice and intermediate sorcerers at Kamar-Taj, who wished to expand their skills in the martial arts and casting magical spells. Stephen Strange was complaining to the Ancient One that he can't make a portal with his Sling Ring because his hands were shaking. So the Ancient One called Hamir to show him that he can make magic even though his hand was missing. Then Hamir demonstrated his magic to him, indicating that Strange can do the same thing as him as long as he did more practice.[1]

Defending America Chavez

In 2025, Hamir was at Kamar-Taj and rallied alongside Doctor Strange and Wong to protect America Chavez. Hamir stayed inside with Chavez, guarding her. When Strange and Wong joined them, Hamir was taken away by Wanda Maximoff, who from within the Mirror Dimension, used the reflections in water puddles on the ground to get to them.[2]

Powers

  • Magic: As a member of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Hamir was able to use magic to fight alongside the sorcerers.
    • Eldritch Magic:

      • Portal Creation: Hamir could use a Sling Ring to open up a portal to anywhere.

Trivia

  • In the comics, Hamir the Hermit is the father of Wong and the attendant of the Ancient One.
  • Hamir, having been mistaken by Stephen Strange to be the Ancient One, is a reference to the latter's appearance in the comics.

Behind the Scenes

  • Scott Derrickson had stated that he would have liked to further explore Hamir's mysterious nature in Doctor Strange sequel: "I actually really like the Hamir character. He never says anything, you know? He's got a disability, but he's a master of the mystic arts. I have a feeling that guy's got some secrets up his sleeve that I'd like to learn more about."[3]
