Zakajz the Corruptor
|Affiliation(s)||Old Gods' forces|
Zakajz was sent millennia ago by his master and the corrupted Prime Designate to hunt down the titanic watcher , 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.
Seeing the human kingdom of Arathor in good hands after the Troll Wars, --first king of Arathor--turned his attention to the origins of humanity. In the Tirisfal Glades he discovered the Tomb of Tyr and accidentally broke the magic seals that kept Zakajz dead within the Tomb. Zakajz quickly slew Thoradin's guards, but the king gave his life ensuring that the beast would not escape. His sword, , kept the monster at bay for millennia, keeping it from regenerating fully.
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. Farthing attempted to use 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.

- Years before the identity of the horror resting beneath Tirisfal was revealed there have been implications of something incredibly unsettling in the area, such as in The Founding of Quel'Thalas. , a Forsaken deserter, spoke of how remnants of the Old Gods still lingered in the deep hollows of the world, and wondered if the Bloodstone Artifacts were created from the blood of something that Kegan seemed to fear. Even as far away as Dun Morogh, , a deranged leper gnome, mentioned how "The darkness beneath Tirisfal will consume us all...".
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.
