Zayl is a young Necromancer, hailing from the Eastern jungles. He has finished his apprenticeship, and travels to Ureh to study the forces at work there.


His object is not for attaining life beyond death (a violation of The Great Cycle of Being), but to communicate with the Archangels.

During his exploration of the city, he comes across the skull of Humbart Wessel and reanimates it. The skull then becomes Zayl's companion in his search.

Zayl banished Karybdus into the moon together with the demon and pet of Diablo: Astrogha.


More about Zayl can be read in the synopsis of Diablo: The Kingdom of Shadow

Zayl also appears in the novel Diablo: Moon of the Spider


Zayl is the son of Icharion.
