The Gazul-Zagaz are a society of Dispossessed Duardin in the Sea of Dust in the Realm of Shyish [1]

Both the armour and clothing of the hold are blackened with soot, ash covering their hair and beards – many wear masks. They are a mournful people, often given to singing dirges and skilled in the art of stealth.[1]

History

They are named after their god, Gazul who had fought Nagash in Age of Myth and lost, inhabiting the ancient ruins of a once glorious cavern-city built around the ancient Oasis of GazulGazul-Baraz.[1]

In the Age of Sigmar they were contacted by Stormcast Eternals led by Lord-Aquilor Sathphren Swiftblade, offering them an alliance to defeat the Keeper of Secrets Amin'Hrith who had tormented them for centuries. In exchange, they would assist in finding Caddow and the Corvine Gate.[1]

The Stormcast lured the Greater Daemon to the heart of the city and smashed the ruby holding the soul of their last prince. The rune-singers were then able to raise him and other dead duardin to attack and destroy it. [1]

Following the victory, a force under Elder Gnol-Tul marched to Caddow to fulfil their oath, engaging the beastmen hordes who inhabited the ruins. [2a] In the ensuing battle to hold the the realmgate long enough for reinforcements to arrive from Azyr, they lost a third of their force, they would later clear out a temple of beastmen to sing them to their god.[2b]

Gardus Steel Soul and Ramus gifted them with a rune-blade, adorned with bones of a saint which would allow them to call upon the Hallowed Knights in times of need. [2b]
