Personal HistoryEdit

The Brahman Kamir was a priest of Kali. He would die his first death around 390 A.D. Kamir surprised some robbers who were stealing the statue of a Hindu God, and was killed by them. After he became Immortal, he was found by Sanjiv Gupta who became his mentor. Throughout his life Kamir identified himself with India and remained loyal to his country. He was up to the present day a priest of Indian religions, especially of Kali.

Kamir, back in 1764.

Thuggee CultEdit

By the year 1764, Kamir lived in India as a consultant to the Maharajas. The fact that he belonged to the Thug Cult he managed to hide. At this time he was observed by Jagdish Bhailal. That year he met Duncan MacLeod who was a new officer of the British. Kamir should help Duncan and the British to destroy the Thug Cult. But instead he was involved in the murder on the British Colonel Ramsey. One day Duncan saved the Indian woman named Vashti, she had to be burned with her dead husbad. Duncan took her with him, and Kamir was not pleased by this. A few days later, however, she decided to go the traditional route. Kamir helped Vashti in her suicide and supervised the ritual burning. MacLeod was angry at Kamir, but decided to stay in India until 1766. In these two years Kamir and Duncan met certainly more often, as Bhailal observed MacLeod too.

The Wrath of KaliEdit

In 1995, Kamir lived in Delhi and was still fighting for the preservation of Indian culture. He followed the trail of the precious statue of Kali Bengal. He got it to an antiques dealer in London. The dealer Martin Millay indeed had the statue but already sold it to the United States. For his blasphemy Kamir strangled Millay at the traditional way of the Thugee, with a silk cloth. Then he got on the next plane to Seacouver. He attended the University exhibition, on which the statue had been shown. There he met up with Duncan MacLeod, who had been involved in the acquisition of the statue. Kamir wanted to pick up the Kali statue, which was sacred to him and return it to India. But Chandra Devane, who was responsible for the issue, did not share his opinion. Kamir tried to persuade Duncan to return the statue. He made an big impression on Richie Ryan with his views. The two would train several times. Although MacLeod was told of Kamir's murder on Millay, he made it not easy to condemn Kamir. Kamir was prepared for a challenge but also wanted that Duncan understood his motives. Eventually Duncan managed to send the statue back to India, at the condition that Kamir would also go. Before he could go, Kamir got to the campus that night and tried to kill chandra in the name of Kali. MacLeod expected this, and challenged him.They fought at the deserted campus. In the planetarium Duncan finally defeated Kamir, and beheaded him..

Sword Edit
