Zaku is a Scarab Beetle from Lyrie.


"Some say he knows the dark magic. The kind that brings people back...from the other side."

- A Bayou resident on Zaku(src)

A shaman/[1]witch doctor[2] Zaku hails from the Bayou of Lyrie.[1] With his magic he controls the flow of life and death, and is just as familiar with the underworld as well as the undergrowth.[3] He was able to help the Bayou's residents with diseases such as Bayou pox...provided they could find him.[2]

Zaku entered the Trials of Strife to protect his tribe, and to give him something to do when he isn't channeling his ancestors. He occasionally loses his grip on reality, but never fails to bring home a treat for his multitudinous corpse-eating brood in the swamps of Lyrie.[3]


Zaku is a support hero who focuses on area control, healing, and returning allies back from the other side.
