Gorgar [1] is a demon who enjoys magic tricks. He has spent years finding a magician because he was frustrated over never getting the card trick done right.

HistoryEdit

After untold years of acquiring only magicians' assistants and doves from a magic cabinet, Ray Stantz and the Ghostbusters arrived in his dimension. They encountered Gorgar, disguised as a human magician named "Gorgani." [2] Ray was elected to help him understand how the card trick is done in exchange for helping them get back to the physical plane. However, upon mastering a trick, Gorgar revealed it was not within his power to teleport them back home. [3] Instead, he showed them to a mysterious gateway to the physical plane that could only be opened by a human being. [4]

After being sucked through, the Nether Energy leaked through and began to transform the physical plane into Gorgar's dimension. The gateway was a cross-dimensional conduit and drew the energy through it. Ray decided to take Gorgar back through the magic cabinet. However, only Gorgar was taken back. According to the Selbert Theory, Nether Energy can flow in only one direction at a time. When he went into the cabinet, an inward flow was created that reversed the effects of the outward flow. [5] The Ghostbusters assumed Gorgar was transported back to his own dimension. At some point, Gorgar was captured and put into the Containment Unit. He escaped when Foul Grungy opened the unit.

ClassificationEdit

Egon Spengler deduced Gorgar was a Class 8 Nether Entity. [6]

PersonalityEdit

While at first Gorgar seemed to be nothing more than an evil demon, however he is actually a reasonable demon that has an interest in learning magic tricks, keeps his word, and was willing to go to the physical plane to learn more. He is not as malevolent as other demons, though he has an extremely dangerous temper.

PowersEdit

He can shapeshift, fly, split into two parts, and spits fire.

TriviaEdit

  • In a discarded scene, Egon pointed out that Nether-Entities have a weakness for bargaining leading the the quid pro quos. [7]
  • In a discarded scene, Gorgar also admitted to knowing how to saw a woman in half... the first part of the magic trick at least. [8]
  • In storyboards, Gorgar's name was misspelled as "Gogar" [9]
  • In Ghostbusters Issue #2 page 10, Gorgar, in his human form, stands behind Jim Silver.
