I warned you that one day I would become a god.
~ Zym to Conan, during the final battle

Khalar Zym is a ruthless and power hungry king and the main antagonist in the 2011 movie remake of Conan the Barbarian.

He was played by Stephen Lang who also portrayed Miles Quaritch in the 2009 global epic hit by James Cameron, Avatar.

In the Movie and Death

Khalar Zym is obsessed with bringing his wife, Maliva, back from the dead due to both being in love with her and the fact she was a powerful Witch. His wife that was burned to the stake for her crimes including helping Khalar Zym in his quest for godhood. He knows full well that without Maliva, he could never obtain said power but if she was returned he was likely to gain it. His plan to resurrect Maliva involves using the mask of Acheron which can only be used by the blood of Tamara (whom also must be a virgin for the full power) because she is the last known desendent of the Acheron clan. His daughter Marique is his argubly most powerful and loyal ally and one of if not the only one he shows any kind of affection towards. Near the climax of the film he gets the mask and power despite Tamara no longer being a virgin (thus its possible it wasn't truly the complete power of the mask). He is killed while he was battling Conan and the platform breaks with Conan barely escaping. His last words are him screaming Maliva.
