When the barbaric forces of Gorfang Rotgut infiltrated Karak Azul, Kazrik rallied its defenders. Although the Orcs were eventually driven out, they took many captives, including many of Kazrik's own kin. The Prince suffered a fate far worse. Captured along with his kinfolk in the King's own throne room, the young Dwarf Prince was not taken captive but shaved, tortured and nailed firmly to Kazador's throne as a gesture of contempt.
Although he was eventually rescued, Kazrik's mind was all but broken by the ordeal. Lost in a haze of madness, Kazrik's grief-stricken father had him kept within a single room of the hold, guarded at all times. Kazrik had been given the name Prince Zaki, meaning mad prince.
Near the end of Heataker he came into co focus with gorfang Rotgut. His fate is unclear, it is possible this brave Dawi perished in the fight.
