Nazaruul is a Scourge necromancer, his stronghold is in the Plaguelands. He is a troll who tried to engineer a new war between humanity and orcs by driving various orcs and humans so mad with hatred in hopes that the truce collapses. He did this by inserting dreams in their minds, which were seen as prophetic visions. One such victim was the ex-paladin Aretain Naris, who thought he lost his paladin powers so that the Light could give him prophetic powers in their place. His plans were discovered by a group of heroes, and he was stopped.
