Orim was one of the core members of the Weatherlight crew, performing numerous duties on the ship.[2] She served as the ship's chief healer, having been trained in the Samite arts at the university of New Argive, where she also first met Hanna; its quartermaster, in charge of the day-to-day running of the ship and the pay of its crew; and its interpreter, due to her training in languages, politics, and diplomacy; and its tailor.[1][3] She played a key role in saving the crew in Mercadia (where she learned to use Cho-Arrim water magic) and also helped significantly during the Phyrexian Invasion when she found a cure for the Phyrexian plague. She survived the war and ultimately returned to Mercadia to be with her love, Cho-Manno.

Oriss, Samite Guardian was a woman who followed the Samite tradition founded in Mercadia by Orim; she may have been a descendant.
