Phantom Lancer minimap icon.png Azwraith, the Phantom Lancer
The remote village of Pole had no knowledge of the wars raging in the heart of the kingdom. For them, the quiet of spear fishing, and a family meal were all that a full life required. Yet war came for them nonetheless. Joining the able-bodied conscripts as they filed passed their homes, the humble lancer Azwraith vowed to bring peace to his kingdom, and in so doing, his people. Placed with his kin in the vanguard of the final assault against the Dread Magus Vorn, the cost to his fellows was absolute. As the charging force battled toward the fortress, Azwraith alone among his kind remained standing, and he alone was able to infiltrate the keep.

Focused and infuriated by the slaughter of his brothers, Azwraith bested each of the wizard's deadly traps and conjured guardians. Soon the simple fisherman arrived at Vorn's tower sanctum. The pair dueled through the night, pike to staff, as chaos raged below, and with a deafening cry Azwraith pierced his enemy. But the wizard did not simply expire; he exploded into uncountable shards of light, penetrating his killer with power. As the dust settled and the smoke of combat began to clear, Azwraith found himself standing among a throng of his kin. Each seemed to be dressed as he was, each seemed armed as he was, and he could sense that each thought as he did. Aware that his allies were approaching, he willed these phantoms to hide themselves, and one by one they began to vanish into nothingness. As the soldiers came upon the sanctum, they found the warrior that had bested the wizard. When they approached their champion, the lancer vanished. The pikeman who had stood before them was no more than another phantom.

  • Azwraith is fond to delivering long, morally righteous lectures, especially to Mireska.[1]
  • After defeating Vorn, Azwraith is loathe to return to Pole, his native village, although he knows he would be welcomed back. This is because he knows the village would have no place for his phantom illusions.[2]
  • Azwraith owns a spear tipped with a crystal charged with Vorn's enemies, helping him focus his illusions on a single purpose.[3]


Azwraith is old friends with Yurnero.[4] They both seem to know a mysterious figured named Kanna, whom Yurnero inquires about.[5]

    There are few things more annoying than fighting a cat man that makes copies of himself. Every time you think you kill the last one, there's always another one behind you.
