Near the 11th century, Azaneal found the forgotten gate to Chorazin under what appeared to be "living shadows". Azaneal sought help from an infernalist faction of Lasombra from Valencia in order to open the gate. The Baali and his new allies discovered a city that was under Chorazin and the tomb of Namtaru.
While Namtaru was in torpor, he wrote powerful signs and words on the walls of his crypt, so anyone who entered became mad with knowledge. Only Azaneal survived the Frenzy, and with the new knowledge gained and the power of his fallen allies he reclaimed Chorazin for himself.
Azaneal called all the Baali to join him; many elders rejected him, but younger infernalists listened to his call, creating an internal war between the Baali. The purpose of Azaneal is to unite all the infernalists under his guidance and uncover all the secrets of Chorazin.
