|Level(s)||20, 24 (?)|
|Campaigns|| Eye of the North |
Bonus Mission Pack
Lazarus is one of the few survivors of the Flameseeker Prophecies. When the Titans emerged from the Foundry of Failed Creations, he split himself up into several aspects and imbued them within members of the broken White Mantle, claiming them to be a blessing. The plan was to wait until the threat of Abaddon and the Titans had passed, and then free each aspect one by one until Lazarus had regained his full power. Unfortunately, he found that freeing each aspect would kill its host.
Lazarus cared little for this collateral damage, but the host of the final aspect, former Justiciar Naveed, cared quite a bit. Having long since realised that Lazarus' gift was no blessing, he fled to the Tarnished Coast, where he sought the help of the talented asura Glayvin. Together, they were able to severely damage the aspect, but not remove it. When Lazarus eventually came to claim the corrupted aspect, he felt his power turn on him. He fled to go into recovery, but not before vowing vengeance against "countless generations".
Quests involved in:
The Rise of the White Mantle
The Justiciar's End
- Lazarus' profession is unclear - in the Bonus Mission Pack he is a Necromancer, but in The Justiciar's End he is an Elementalist.
- Lazarus makes a reappearance in Guild Wars 2 revived by absorbing the power of Bloodstone Fen, which exploded during a White Mantle operation, "Operation Rebirth." He is the only Mursaat in Guild Wars 2 so far, and is believed to be the last surviving member of the Mursaat race.
|The Guild Wars 2 Wiki also has an article on Lazarus the Dire.|
- Lazarus' name is probably a reference to the Biblical figure Lazarus of Bethany, who was raised from death by Jesus after being dead for four days.
