Originally a Yaungol shaman, he sacrificed himself to the Fire Lords during the Sundering and became a demi-god. However, he is in eternal agony because his body is always on fire. Because of his status as a demi god, his Fire-Keepers set themselves on fire to mimic Ordos' ascension.
Players are required to obtain the legendary cloak on just one avatar to reach Ordos. Ordos gives gear with an item level of 559 when defeated.
