The Azjol-anak are a group of the few remaining nerubians that are still living. They reside within Azjol-Nerub and are strongly opposed to Anub'arak's undead nerubians, the Anub'ar. They ordered to kill Anub'arak for his crimes. After his death, it is revealed that the Azjol-anak possess an enormous secret stash of their own eggs hidden safely, so that after the wipe out of the Scourge from Azjol-Nerub, they can begin repopulating their people. Upon expelling the faceless ones from Ahn'kahet, they work to hatch a giant cocoon.
