History: (Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Bohra became the apprentice to famed Camelot wizard Merlin. At some point, Bohra became a being later known as the Forgotten, dubbed VIII.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#1 (fb)) - When Merlin brought the Forgotten XII to be locked away, Bohra reported Merlin's actions to King Arthur Pendragon and followed the King to confront Merlin. Merlin announced that he did not need King Arthur's permission and prepared to lock away XII, prompting Bohra to reveal himself as the Forgotten spy VIII. Attacking Merlin, VIII was hit by a spy from Merlin that revealed VIII's true form and VIII declared that Merlin could not cage what he didn't understand. Merlin agreed, but denounced VIII as evil incarnate, shoving VIII into a cell with XII.

Comments: Created by Robbie Thompson, Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez.

In his human guise, VIII/Bohra did possess eyes and hair but the only image of him in this form had a green magic hue to it so it was impossible to determine what his actual eye and hair color was.

The Forgotten eventually became a gigantic gestalt being and VIII/Bohra was likely part of this gestalt but since it was never shown for sure, I chose not to list the appearances of the gestalt Forgotten in this profile in favor of mentioning those appearances in a larger profile of the Forgotten.
