Master of Mystic Arts
Introduced to Doctor Strange
Karl Mordo brought Stephen Strange to the Ancient One at Kamar-Taj as the latter hoped she could mend his damaged hands. At first, Strange mistook Hamir for the Ancient One due to his preconceived ideas.
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.
Master Sorcerer: As a member of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Hamir possesses a considerable mastery of the mystic arts, which he uses to defend his native reality.

Behind the Scenes
- Scott Derrickson has stated that he would like to further explore Hamir's mysterious nature in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: "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."
