Lazav is the current guildmaster of House Dimir on Ravnica.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Apart from him being a shapeshifter, details about Lazav are scarce. He (or she, or they[2]) claims to take orders from some greater power. Lazav has a regal bearing and wears a flowing leather cloak, made from the hide of some beast that had gone extinct ages ago. He is able to warp reality and seems to attract all of the magic in his surroundings toward him.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

After Szadek was killed and gained control over Agyrem, Lazav managed to gather what was left of the Dimir and bring them together. A ritual was supposed to allow them to commune with the previous guildmaster's spirit, however, it is unknown whether that was true or just a ruse. Since the Dimir guildhall was lost to all, they built a new Duskmantle, which replaced the old structure. Lazav continued to use most of Szadek's methods, giving both their own agents and mercenaries (one of whom is Krenko[4]) as little information as is required to further their goals.

Recently, Lazav suspects that an invader has taken over several guilds, and actively works against them.[5] Bolas represents a direct threat to House Dimir's existence by rendering all its scheming obsolete.[2] Although Lazav's greatest wish is to mount a coup and seize power over Ravnica, his greatest fear is he'll have to settle to preventing one.[2]
