Xar-Azmak was living entropy. He roamed the planes to corrupt all he found with his touch and aura: metals, stone, flesh, and hope.1

Appearance

Xar-Azmak appeared in the form of a rusted iron golem with horns and hooves.1

History

After destroying a large portion of Dis which is still in ruins, Xar-Azmak was destroyed by Dispater's forces.1

Home

Like many dead demon lords, Xar-Azmak's quasi-soul now resides in the Abyssal Rift of Repose,1 though he originally ruled his own Abyssal realm of Vlorus.2

Legacy

Despite his defeat, some traces of Xar-Azmak still remain, in particular some Azmakian effigies have survived on Golarion. These evil, demonic constructs are feared for their rusting breath and some scholars still seek the lost secrets of constructing these foul creatures.3

There is also the Horn of Rust, which is part of Xar-Azmak.4
