Cazic-Thule discovered the world of Norrath
around the same time as Bristlebane
, and of course Veeshan
had already populated the world with their creations. He was drawn to the world's swamps
, which is where he created the green-skinned Trolls
and many variations of lizard men
, including the Iksar
and Shissar. Throughout the history of Norrath, Cazic-Thule has been a primary villain
Cazic-Thule's followers are deathly afraid of him, but believe that spreading this intense fear into the hearts and minds of others will earn the Faceless' favor. Hope is the eternal enemy of any true Cazicite. Terror, fright, and dread, and living sacrifice are the tools of a devotee of Cazic-Thule. Most lizardman
tribes are devout followers of Cazic-Thule, but his population of more intelligent races grows every day. It is their beliefe that soon all of Norrath will be enveloped in a fog of nightmares. A massive temple to The Faceless was built centuries ago by the Ogres
in the jungles
of The Feerott. The Erudites
of Paineel also worship the Lord of Fear.
In most lore, Cazic-Thule is depicted as a hulking, four-armed monster with razor sharp spikes covering his back. Being known as The Faceless, he indeed has no face, or even eyes. Cazic-Thule is the embodiment of fear, dread, fright, and terror.
Among the Pantheon
Cazic-Thule is allied with Innoruuk and Rallos Zek, and is sworn enemies with Mithaniel and Erollisi Marr. The Faceless has two children, Terris
, and is also responsible for the ascension of several demigods. Cazic-Thule makes his home in the Plane of Fear, which was the first plane breached by mortals since The Elder Age.
