Gomurr is a three-foot-tall Chinese sorcerer who is a long-time acquaintance of Wolverine. Gomurr's true age is unknown, but it is known that "centuries ago," when a group of heretic monks attempted to summon Cyttorak but instead brought his "most destructive aspect" to Asia, Gomurr (then the apprentice to "one of the most disreputable conjurers on the continent") opposed him. Gomurr was assisted by Tar, his friend and rival and an "Initiate of the Ebon Vein." Gomurr and Tar together succeeded in imprisoning this aspect of Cyttorak within the Crimson Gem of Cyttorak. Tar later became the "Proctor of the Crimson Dawn," a title which Gomurr now holds.

Gomurr may also be the Sorcerer Supreme of the Crimson Dawn Dimension. Gomurr knows Doctor Strange, although the tenor of their relationship is not known.
