"...Honor the omnipotence of Izax, the Ultimate Devourer: father, ruler, and bringer of death to us all. His forms are infinite, but his great glory flies on serpent wings...." -Excerpt from Zakuulan religious text
Izax the Ultimate Devourer was the name of a god worshiped by the people of Zakuul in the days before Emperor Valkorion's rise to power and his creation of the Eternal Empire. He was the chief deity of the Zakuulian pantheon, and was the husband of Scyva and the father of Tyth, Aivela, Esne, and Nahut.
One of Valkorion's titles was "Slayer of Izax". During one of Vaylin's propagandistic speeches, she derisively referred to Zakuulian rebels as "those who spit on Izax."
