The C'Thraxxi monstrosity Zakajz the Corruptor is a powerful servant of the Old God Yogg-Saron that rests within Tyr's Fall under the Whispering Forest in Tirisfal Glades.

History

Zakajz was sent millennia ago by his master and the corrupted Prime Designate Loken to hunt down the titanic watcher Tyr, who had stolen the Discs of Norgannon from Loken. Eventually, Tyr sacrificed himself to kill the Corruptor in the land that would later bear the name "Tirisfal" in his memory.[1]

Seeing the human kingdom of Arathor in good hands after the Troll Wars, Thoradin--first king of Arathor--turned his attention to the origins of humanity. In the Tirisfal Glades he discovered the Tomb of Tyr[2] and accidentally broke the magic seals that kept Zakajz dead within the Tomb.[3] Zakajz quickly slew Thoradin's guards, but the king gave his life ensuring that the beast would not escape. His sword,  [Strom'kar, the Warbreaker], kept the monster at bay for millennia, keeping it from regenerating fully.[3]

Centuries later the Twilight's Hammer would attempt to awaken Zakajz under Bishop Farthing's command, but a warrior pulled Strom'kar from his carapace and struck him down once more in Thoradin's name.[3] Farthing attempted to use  [Xal'atath, Blade of the Black Empire] to rouse Zakajz yet again, but he was slain by a priest who used the blade to consume the last remnants of the creature's power.[4]

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is highly likely that Zakajz is the evil that drove several of the exiled Highborne mad when they first landed in the Eastern Kingdoms and attempted to settle the Tirisfal Glades, as described in The Founding of Quel'Thalas.
