Alaznist (pronounced a-LAZ-nist)[1] was the last Thassilonian Runelord of Wrath, who ruled for many years over her realm of Bakrakhan. She is believed to have retreated from view along with the other runelords during Earthfall, and it is unknown whether she survived that cataclysm.[2] She ruled from her capitol of Xin-Bakrakhan, the City of Wrath, which is believed to have been located on what is now the island of Hollow Mountain in the Varisian Gulf.[3] As she has been dead for almost 10,000 years, no one can be sure of exactly what she looked like, although statues that have been found depict her as a beautiful, yet enraged human woman with long hair, flowing robes, and wielding a thorny ranseur.[4] She is said to have been impatient and impulsive, caring little for magical research, and preferred modifying her many troops by magical means.[5]

Alaznist is said to have been a worshiper of many kinds of demons, who shared her enthusiasm for violence and destruction. Most important to her, however, was the pure veneration of anger and wrath. In order to encourage these traits in her subjects, she built many runewells which could absorb the souls of wrathful mortals in order to further her power and create sinspawn.[6]The Runelord of Wrath seems to have directed most of her anger toward her fellow runelord, Karzoug. The two were in a state of perpetual warfare constantly battling at the border their two realms shared. She constructed the Hellstorm Flumes along their mutual border, in order to scorch harassing armies from miles away.[7] She is also known to have used runeslave giants as living siege weapons[8], and is said to have created reefclaws in order to protect her rivers and other bodies of water.[9]
