Mophir was the last surviving member of a clan of ancient warriors that swore to guard the Heart of Darkness. Should that crystal ever he touched by someone, its holder would become possessed by the Ophidians, who had sworn revenge against humanity... Mophir made his only appearance in House of Secrets #61... He was a tribal sorcerer/high-priest who, while trying to prevent Bruce Gordon from photographing an eclipse, accidentally scratched him with the black diamond. During the fight, Mophir fell off a cliff to his death. This incident also changed Bruce Gordon into Eclipso.
