Powers/Abilities: Phor-Thok was a normal human who was rather able to satisfy his king's orders.
(Savage Sword of Conan#73 - BTS) - Phor-Thok helped his king in is campaign to destroy the Barachan pirates and their leader, Conan. After Conan's pirates were defeated and executed, Phor-Thok sent an elite squadron of light cavalry in search for him.
(Savage Sword of Conan#73) - The contingent had to track down Conan in Stygia and also in Kush. Phor-Thok was worried about the political consequences of the invasion of his soldiers in foreign territory, but the King of Zingara also knew that the Stygians wanted that pirate dead.
The soldiers found someone in the swamps of Kush whom they thought was Conan. They killed him and brought his head back to the King, but they didn't know that Conan was actually alive; they had slain a changeling alien who had taken Conan's form.
