Gor-na is an Atlantean warrior and a friend/father figure of Kull in the days before Kull's exile from Atlantis. He belonged to the Sea-Mountain Tribe, the tribe who adopted Kull as a child. Gor-na is described as an older man, powerful and massively built, with an aggressive face behind a thick beard. He hated Valusia, along with all the Seven Empires, and enjoyed telling war stories about the raids he carried out against them. Despite being his friend, Gor-na had no patience for the youthful Kull's apparent disrespect for Atlantean traditions.[1]

Gor-na was the name originally intended for the character by Robert E. Howard [1] but was changed by later editors to Khor-nah.[2]
