Hazeel is a Zamorakian Mahjarrat who originally dominated the region of present day Ardougne until he was defeated by a Saradominist peasant, ancestor of the Carnillean family. He participated in Zamorak's rebellion against Zaros and fended off Zaros' bodyguards while Zamorak fought him alone, with no interferences. Hazeel still has followers today, which are attempting to revive him after he was put into a state of torpor.
During the Hazeel Cult quest, should the player side with the cultists, he is revived, after which he travels north to meet attend the Ritual of Rejuvenation. Should the player side with the Carnilleans, the player reclaims the Carnillean armour from Alomone and prevents Hazeel's return.
Arrival on GielinorEdit
Hazeel first stepped on Gielinor in the Second Age, when Icthlarin brought the Mahjarrat from Freneskae to aid him in the Kharidian Desert. Hazeel, along with the other Mahjarrat, were known as "The Stern Judges of Icthlarin". They fought against Zaros' minions when they tried to dominate the desert and easily won the battle. Zaros, impressed by their might, approached them and converted them to his cause. Under the service of Zaros, the Mahjarrat soon became feared all over the world.
At some point, Zaros tasked a flock of ripper demons to destroy a small village for unknown reasons. The village was seemingly extremely fragile, but it housed Torva, an extremely powerful melee fighter, who wiped out the entire flock alone. Seeing this, Hazeel grew impatient and decided to complete the job himself, but Torva was not afraid and was able to survive Hazeel's attack, after which he was recruited into the forces of Zaros by Nex, a Zarosian General.
After some time, most of the Mahjarrat were not content with Zaros' lead, and soon started to plot against him. Zamorak, who was a Zarosian general at that time, was the principal. Zamorak found the Stone of Jas, and soon after, the Staff of Armadyl fell in his hands, and they were the key to puting his plans against Zaros into action. He attacked Zaros' castle with his main followers, Hazeel, Lord Drakan, Thammaron, Viggora and Zemouregal. During the fight, Zaros tripped and impaled himself as well as Zamorak into the staff, and transferring much of Zaros's godly power into Zamorak, turning him into a god and banishing Zaros from Gielinor, although it could have gone either way.
Domination of KandarinEdit
During the end of the God Wars, the Mahjarrat Khazard was born, with his mother Palkeera dying soon after. Hazeel began to tutor the young Mahjarrat and together they soon dominated much of Southern Kandarin, including the area which is now Ardougne. They ruled this land with an iron fist and the territory was a huge Zamorakian stain on the map of Saradominists.
When the Fifth Age came to be, a group of Saradominists decided to attempt to liberate the land covered in brutality and cruelty. The leader of this group was of the Carnillean family, who wanted to do anything in his reach to defeat Hazeel, ignoring whisperers that Hazeel was not a mortal man and couldn't truly be slain. One dark night, this leader and his group swarmed Hazeel's mansion and executed all the Zamorakians within, but only managing to to put Hazeel himself into a state of torpor. Soon after, the leader claimed Hazeel's mansion for his own. The territory, free from Zamorakian influences grew rapidly and the city of Ardougne was created, the greatest city of Kandarin.
In the year 169 of the Fifth Age, an adventurer was given a quest by Ceril Carnillean, a descendant of the one who led the assault against Hazeel. Ceril asked the Adventurer to recover his ceremonial armour, which had been stolen by a group of cultists which had broken into their mansion many times. The Adventurer found a cultist known Clivet in a cave in the forest south of Ardougne, whom asked them to aid them in reviving Hazeel. If the adventurer decides to side with the cultists, with the assistance of fellow cultist Butler Jones they manage to find a scroll in the Carnillean Mansion that allows cult leader Alomone to perform a ritual of Revivification and revive Hazeel. After Hazeel is revived, he rewards the adventurer and heads north in order to attend the 18th Ritual of Rejuvination and regain his strength and power. (If the player completed the quest "Hazeel's cult" and sided with the cultists.)
The 18th Ritual of RejuvinationEdit
If the adventurer sided with the cultists during the quest "Hazeel's cult", Hazeel briefly appears at the end of the battles appearing weaker than when he was resurrected and fights against Sir Tiffy Cashien, and Idria, but after Lucien refuses to help Zemouregal after Arrav begins to attack him, the Mahjarrat turn against Lucien and everyone begins to attack him. In the end, his powers are regained after the ritual takes place and Jhallan is sacrificed, rejuvinating him and the other present Mahjarrat, restoring their flesh. Before that, Hazeel stayed loyal to fellow Zamorakians throughout the decision, agreeing with the idea of sacrificing a Zarosian Mahjarrat in the place of a Zamorakian until all opposed Lucien. When Lucien was killed by the Dragonkin, he showed a great deal of indifference on the matter, before disappearing along with his fellow Mahjarrat, simply saying "Hmph," before teleporting away. His followers await his return from his business in the North. However, if the player didn't aid the cult, Hazeel will not be revived and as such is not present at the ritual.
Hazeel's Servant in the Postbag from the HedgeEditThis letter is in the Postbag 13 to a curious adventurer...
- "Hail Lord _____, traveller of the depths,
- I write to you from the north on behalf of my liege and master, Lord Hazeel.
- My lord has called upon me to write to you and relay his assurances that all is going to plan; although you have waited long and have heard little, a solitary year is but nothing to the great Hazeel.
- Lord Hazeel has spoken highly of you – an honour granted to few who serve him – and he believes you will soon be instrumental in the enterprises already underway.
- I am afraid that I cannot disclose to you at this time the reason for our journey to the north or more details of my master's plans. Lord Hazeel's business is urgent and the success of his endeavours is paramount; secrecy is imperative. The danger that this missive will fall into the wrong hands is too great to take any risks. Rest assured, however, that he will call upon you when the time is ripe for action.
- Lord _____, word of your exploits has travelled widely; your respect for Zamorak is to be commended and your efforts on my master's behalf are beyond praise. We will be honoured to count you as one of our number in the days ahead.
- For now, let the blinded Saradominists bask in their false sense of security; the Age of Zamorak will be upon them before they have time to brush their pitiful teeth.
- Yours in darkness,
- A friend and fellow servant of Zamorak"
- With his new avatar, he wears a short cape that if looked at closely looks like an Ardougne cloak.
- If you side with the cultists during the quest and talk to the Wise Old Man your character will say "Hazeel will rise again, you'll see." Although Hazeel was already resurrected. You could, however, be referring to Hazeel rising to power and taking back Ardougne once more, as he once controlled it before being sealed away by an ancestor of the Carnillean Family.
