The Sorcerer's Conspectus:

A comprehensive view of Andre Norton's Witch World

by Lotsawatts

Races of Witch World ~ Gormians


Gormians were one-time neighbors of the Old Race of Escore before they doomed themselves by calling on the Kolder.

Appearance: Gormians have/had wheat blond hair and blue, blue-green, or green eyes. Their skin color was described as pale.

Living Area(s): Originally, the island of Gorm, currently unknown but most likely EstcarpKarsten and possibly among the Sulcar. One even turned up in Alizon.

Life Span: There is no mention of how long someone from Gorm lived.

Power: Koris and Gratch are the only two confirmed remainders of Gorm line and neither show any hints of Power.

Other: Those of the island of Gorm were overthrown by the Kolder, the population of their island home was decimated, those not killed in body were turned into zombies. How many of their race remains is debatable; it is possible that this race is now extinct or near extinct. There is no record of those from Gorm being Gated in.


Sorcerer's Notes:
It's likely those of Gorm came from oversea. It could be possible more of their race still exists somewhere on the western continent or other unexplored areas. They may be related to the Dalesfolk of High HallackKarstenians or the Sulcar.
