|“||Know that I am Balnazzar. Know, as I drink your life, that I will take up residence in this weak shell your soul once called home. Know that I will corrupt and destroy everything and everyone you have ever loved.||„|
Balnazzar was one of the three nathrezim left behind in Lordaeron to oversee its demonic conquest. However, following the defeat of Archimonde and the return of Prince Arthas, he, alongside his two siblings fled, quickly regrouped, and concocted a new plan to destroy Arthas once and for all. Though they ultimately failed to destroy Arthas, the undead prince eventually left Lordaeron, leaving Balnazzar to rule the Plaguelands. Soon after, Sylvanas laid siege to Balnazzar's forces and ultimately forced Varimathras to execute Balnazzar. However the execution was faked and Balnazzar later came to possess the body of Saidan Dathrohan, a founder of the Scarlet Crusade. Following the war against the Lich King, Balnazzar and his undead Risen were killed by adventurers and forced back to the Twisting Nether, where he would return from years later during third invasion of the Burning Legion. Balnazzar was finally killed in the Netherlight Temple located in the Twisting Nether, thus dying a permanent death.
