Kaahrj in World of Warcraft.

Xal'atath describes Kaahrj as an "idiotic pustule of N'Zoth".[1]

Adventure Guide

This eldritch creature was captured in the depths of Ulduar, ensnared as it lapsed into a catatonic state after the defeat of Yogg-Saron. Since Dalaran arrived at the Broken Isles, the monstrosity has mysteriously awakened, and only the powerful wards of the Violet Hold keep its powers in check.


Mindflayer Kaahrj attacks the party with his Shadow Crash and Hysteria spells. At 80% and 40% health, Mindflayer Kaahrj casts Eternal Darkness, ushering in a swathe of Faceless Tendrils to repeatedly damage party members.
