The elder demon Belzenlok was one of the four demons who dealt with Liliana Vess following the Mending.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Belzenlok fought in something called "The War of the Abyss", and had been stuck in the Abyss ever since.

The Cabal of Dominaria, desperate for leadership after the demise of The First, performed a ritual to summon Kuberr, but accidentally freed Belzenlok from the Abyss.[2]

As part of the Cabal, the Demonlord began the process of rewriting history with himself as the lead, claiming Yawgmoth's title of Lord of the Wastes and Dakkon Blackblade's accomplishments of forging the Blackblade and killing the Elder Dragon Piru.[3][4] He was also known as the Evincar of the Stronghold, King of Urborg, Scion of Darkness, Doom of Fools, Master of the Ebon Hand, and the Eternal Patriarch of the Cabal.[5]

After subjugating much of Dominaria beneath his rule, he was ultimately killed in a strike against the Cabal Stronghold by the skyship Weatherlight and its crew. The Planeswalker Gideon Jura infiltrated the Stronghold and seized control of the Blackblade, and in the ensuing battle, Liliana Vess used the legendary sword to slay Belzenlok and end his reign.[6]

Belzenlok could (or at least claimed to be able to) smell if a person was a planeswalker or not.
