Dreadful Disguised Leader of the Snake Men
King Hiss is the former ruler of Eternia, Lord of Snake Mountain and leader of the Snake Men. King Hiss has magic as great as that of the Elders and is one of He-Man’s most powerful enemies and the arch-nemesis to Zodak.
Real Name: Hssss of the Viper House
A servant of the Unnamed One, Hssss was chosen to lead an army of Snake Men to the planet of Eternia to plunder its magical secrets. He ruled Eternia for three centuries until a rebellion formed under D'Vann Grayskull. Soon afterwards, the Horde invaded and Hssss was drawn into a three-way war. All three sides agreed to a temporary truce in order to construct the Three Towers, but Hssss was betrayed by Hordak and in time was banished to the Void by the Elders and Zodak. For five centuries he and his army waited until Evil-Lyn and a Snake Men descendent named Kobra Khan opened the Snake Pit to free them. King Hssss often tricks foes by appearing heroic but then transforms into a seething mass of serpents and leads the Snake Men into battle!
King Hiss’s core personality is that of a person that is as generous to his friends as he is ruthless to his enemies.
Powers and Abilities:
King Hiss’s appearance is human, but he is capable of shedding his human skin revealing everything from his waist up to be a writhing mass of serpents. Hiss possesses a host of somewhat vague magical powers. The Sorceress of Castle Grayskull once stated that King Hiss’s magic is as ancient as that of the Elders.
