Commonly called "the Faceless Ones," the Zûl are seven wraith-like spirits of long dead eastern kings, who were enslaved by Sorimmar.

Their elvish name means "Shadows," and the seven are the Dark Lord’s most trusted lieutenants and enforcers of his will. Each of whom carries a masterwork great-sword that has a large black gem set in its pommel.

These Zûlenthir; or "Shadow-Stones," carry the life energies of each wraith trapped within. Sages say the Shadow-Stones are indestructible, unless thrown into the fires of Mount Orendren.

The Zûl appear as tall human warriors, clad in ornate silver and black scale and plate mail, covered with hooded black cloaks and robes, with only shadowy vapor underneath.

The faces of the Zûl are black voids, save for two bright red orbs that are the creature’s eyes. The Zûl can communicate verbally or telepathically in any of the known languages of Corwyn.

The Zûl are powerful and highly skilled with both the sword and the use of magic. There mere presence will send most men running in fear, and their touch is so cold, it will paralyze or even kill most mortal men.

The most legendary of the seven Zûl was King Khoroth of Drakhara. One by one, all seven rulers of the eastern realms of the Fifth Age accepted one of Zûlenthir.

At that point, their life energies were drained into the stones and they became immortal undead; with a hatred and disdain for all living beings and a fanasticla loyalty to their Dark Lord Sorimmar..

These wraiths ride specially bred, black Equinäe horses or black winged steeds from the Abyss. These seven lieutenants of the Dark Lord have caused much misery and death during their existence.

They have led the armies of Drakhara in the Arctic War, the War of the Cataclysm, and the War of Crows. Many brave kings of the West have been slain by their hand.

Over the centuries, the Zûl have slain the following kings in battle:
