bio: amora was the apprentice to karnilla in her early years, where she learned much of her magic, before she was expelled for stealing. she seduced other wizards and magicians into telling her their secrets, furthering her knowledge of the mystic arts. she has a deep love for thor, and was angered when he chose sif over her. she often concocts while schemes to convince thor to come to her, forming villainous teams and allying herself with his wicked brother loki. though she appears selfish and vain and cold-hearted, she does have a level head and emotions beyond lust and megalomania. during times of great trouble for asgard she has shown her loyalty to her homeland by helping in its defense, and has no desire for the death of thor. still, she continues to be one of the greatest adversaries of marvel’s heroes, both mystic and non.
