66 years ago, he and his wife Mijung investigated a strange planar rift in the Elven Lands while on a diplomatic mission. Mijung is killed by the Snarl. Because of the Snarl's divine nature, her soul is destroyed, making resurrection or afterlife impossible. Soon meets up with Lirian the Elf Druid and resolve to investigate the rifts.
Soon and Lirian have been accompanied by Serini Toormuck, Girard Draketooth, Kraagor and finally Dorukan. The party discover five rifts throughout the planet, and deduce their divine nature. Dorukan and Lirian build gates to keep the rifts permanently sealed, becoming romantically involved as they do.
After the Order disbanded Soon Kim chose the rift in the south to guard. This was the smallest of the 5 rifts; so small Soon and The Sapphire Guard were capable of using a single gemstone to seal it. A throne was built to guard the stone, and a castle was built to protect it. After his death, he remained there as an oathspirit to guard his Gate.
Battle of Azure CityEdit

Only the honor of a paladin is unbreakable-

Ghost-martyrs of the Sapphire Guard - ATTACK!
|— Soon Kim|
During the Battle of Azure City, Soon's spirit returned with an army of dead paladins against Xykon who broke in the throne room. Soon was on the verge of killing both Xykon and Redcloak, but right then, Miko entered and destroyed the Gate, not knowing that the battle was over. This resulted in a devastating explosion. Since the Gate was no more to be guarded, Soon's spirit lost it's anchor and went to the afterlife (presumably the Lawful Good afterlife coresponding to the Southern Gods, as opposed to the Northern Afterlife that Roy went to). He both comforted Miko and was honest with her as she died. He and the other ghost-martyrs escorted Miko up to her place in the Celestial Realm.
