Atziri, Queen of the Vaal

Atziri is a historical figure of Wraeclast, the former queen of the Vaal civilization. She and Doryani were the direct cause of the Vaal Cataclysm that ended her civilization. Atziri is the subject of the Path of Exile: Sacrifice of the Vaal Version 1.1.0 "mini-expansion". In promotional material and in-game, Atziri is depicted as being monstrously tall, with red skin, four arms, and a horned golden helmet. However, some items depict her as a normal-looking woman with fair skin and red hair.[a]

In-game she is encountered as a boss in The Apex of Sacrifice, The Alluring Abyss, and the Throne of Atziri area of Chronicles of AtzoatlChronicle of Atzoatl"Grand plans were laid for a place called Atzoatl, though fierce bickering between its Architects is said to have stifled its development." - Icius Perandus, Antiquities Collection, Research ReportRight click this item to view the Temple of Atzoatl.

. She is also known as "Queen Atziri", "Atziri, Queen of the Vaal", "The Red Queen"[b], "Queen of Endless Beauty"[c], "Atziri, Queen of Sacrifice"[d] or simply "Queen" by the Vaal.[e]

In-game encounters

Atziri is always encountered as either a boss or apparition.

The Apex of Sacrifice

Atziri, Queen of the Vaal can be encountered in the final area of the Apex of Sacrifice as its boss.

The Alluring Abyss

Atziri, Queen of the Vaal can be encountered in the final area of the Alluring Abyss as its boss.

Being the subject of the expansion, Atziri is heavily featured in the promotional material for Path of Exile: Sacrifice of the Vaal.

Promotional image from the first SotV announcement depicting Atziri.

Atziri narrates the official trailer for the Sacrifice of the Vaal "mini-expansion".

Sacrifice. It is the most noble, most beautiful act a mortal may perform. It is an act of divinity! To sacrifice is to give yourself to something greater. To sacrifice is to transform the world.

I see it in your eyes. Your blood. You do not feel my words. You are selfish. Afraid. Do not let fear stand between you and your destiny.

Give me your heart and I will give you beauty beyond your darkest dreams.

- Atziri, "Path of Exile: Sacrifice of the Vaal Official Trailer"

History

Atziri was the last queen of the Vaal civilization before it was brought to ruin by the Vaal Cataclysm. She was a vain, narcissistic, and beautiful ruler, obsessed with achieving immortality both for herself and her beauty.[2][3] Although dissenters in her court were usually sacrificed, she sometimes took matters into her own hands.[f][g]

), usually signalling the presence of reflect mechanics. It is a longstanding symbol of her vanity.

Early reign

Atziri held court naked in a "throne room of mirrors", demanding the same of anyone wishing an audience with her.[4] Scholars believe that she used her "striking physical appearance" to solicit "courtly engagements in her favour", especially from men.[5] This follows her stated philosophy in Atziri's Splendour.

"When you have nothing to hide,

you have nothing to fear."

— Atziri[h]

Atziri was reported to having had many "lovers" during her reign. However, not all of them came to her willingly. In those cases, the Elixir of AllureElixir of AllureFamous for her many lovers, those that did not

was used.[6]

Zerphi

Main page: Zerphi

During Atziri's reign, a Vaalish noble named Zerphi caught her attention for having lived to 168. He was a serial killer; over a period of 128 years, Zerphi abducted, tortured, and murdered thirteen victims, all Gemlings of noble descent at their twentieth year of life. Post-mortem revealed that each victim had been tortured and mutilated slowly, all while they were still alive. When Zerphi himself was found dead next to his thirteenth victim, (whose body appeared untouched) instead of that of a centenarian, it was discovered that his body resembled that of a twenty year-old.[7]

Atziri tasked her premier thaumaturgist Doryani with the task of researching Zerphi's methods of achieving his longevity and vitality, ordering him to "make any effort within the realms of possibility, and to act without fear of question or consequence". Doryani's methods were brutal - countless Vaal between the ages of 16-26 were sent to him, yet none survived and his experiments proved unsuccessful.[8]

Atziri's reign

Despite the failures with exactly replicating Zerphi's success, Atziri never lost her desire for immortal life. Under her reign, she began demanding sacrifice from the Vaal - of life and blood. As Atziri grew more desperate and the blood of the empire began to run dry, more and more Vaal were sent to the altar every day - from the common thief to the most devoted thaumaturge or most trusted advisor, none were exempt. However, it was the lower classes that suffered the most.[9][10][11] The Vaal used these souls of those sacrifice to power their Vaal gems.[12][13][14]

For their sacrifice, Atziri promised immortality not just for herself, but for the entire Vaal population.[15] However, due to her history of vanity and narcissism, it is questionable whether she had ever intended to save the other Vaal as opposed to keeping immortality only to herself.[16]

Some of the Vaal were fully accepting of Atziri's sacrifices and rituals,[17] but others expressed disillusionment and dissent[18]. Any such protestors were quickly arrested and at her altars.[19]

Atziri became obsessed with gems as well as sacrifice. Soon, they were too ubiquitous in Vaal society. Historical recountings of the Vaal describe their bodies as were glittering, adorned with gems all over.[20][21]

Signs of the Vaal civilization's decline began showing even before The Fall. [22][23] This may have been caused by the excessive sacrifice.

Kishara

Main page: Kishara's Star

Kishara, a Vaal explorer from Atziri's time, fell out of Atziri's favour for an unknown reason. Atziri took Kishara's ship and made sacrifices out of her crew, forcing Kishara to escape and go into hiding.[24][25]

The Temple of Atzoatl

The Temple of Atzoatl's construction is said to have began in the final years of Atziri's reign, with it being completed shortly before The Fall. Its exact location has been lost to time and, for the denizens of Wraeclast, its existence and purpose now lie within the realm of mythology. With the help of Alva, the player exile is able to travel back in time to affect its construction by killing specific Architects.

At the peak of Atzoatl's influence, evidence suggests that Atziri herself moved her seat of power to there. This may be why she can be encountered in the Throne of Atziri area of The Temple of Atzoatl.[26]

Those at Atzoatl "played host" to the "Cult of the Purple Flame" - worshipping the Breachlords. Atziri's exact role in this "cult" is unknown.[27]

At The Temple of Atzoatl, the Vaal were repeatedly attacked by a certain "horrifying murderous entity". To defend, the Vaal stationed a "great many warriors" and bred "a great many creatures" to defend against the attacks.[28][29]

The Fall

Under Atziri, Doryani's experiments grew in size and scope, until he began work on his final project. At the time of or in preparation for this project, Atziri took her treasures and moved them to Vaults of AtziriVaults of Atziri

The exact details of his experiments and its fallout are extremely nebulous due to lack of documentation. However, it involved manipulating the powers of the Beast, its thaumaturgy, corruption, gems, sacrifice, "communion", the "harvest moon", "sleep", "nightmare", maps, and possibly The Elder.[30][19][31][32][33]

Doryani did not appear to be successful. His actions led to the end of the Vaal civilization - "The Fall", a cataclysmic event that led to the deaths of all but 3126 survivors, who sought refuge with the nearby Azmeri. When asked about the Fall, none of the survivors could say what had happened. Over time, they assimilated into the Azmeri population until no Vaal remained. Despite the ubiquity of gems in the Vaal civilization, none of these survivors had any; when the Kalguur showed them an image of one, a "great panic arose" and the Kalguur were banished from the Azmerian mountains.[20]

"... tattered, shambling survivors, bereft of their families, their wealth, and in many cases, their sanity."

— Trinian, "The Ancients", Book 5: The Fall

As for Atziri, she managed to preserve her beauty into as the cost of sacrificing her humanity,[34] relegated to a "nightmare realm" and unable to return to Wraeclast. Doryani's fate is unclear. In Atziri's "crimson nightmare" realm, she is joined by other Vaal who continue to sacrifice themselves to her over and over, only to rise again each time.[35] The Trialmaster describes Atziri's realm of "crimson madness and nightmare" as being beyond the reach of Chaos.

Post Fall

Milleniums have passed since Atziri left the mortal plane. However, her influence has begun creeping back into Wraeclast. This is presumably the source of Vaal side areas, Vaal skill gems, Vaal OrbVaal OrbStack Size: 20Corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictablyRight click this item then left click an item to corrupt it. Corrupted items cannot be modified again.s, and corruption appearing.[36][37]

According to The Trialmaster, Atziri's actions and the collapse of the Vaal were inevitable, occurring in every possible world. This is a direct contradiction to The Trialmaster and Chaos's stated philosophy, which states that every possible outcome leads to different worlds existing where each one contains a different outcome occuring. This implies that Atziri's actions were not of choice or chance, as there exists no world where her actions did not take place.[38]

Davaro of Theopolis

Main page: Research Journal

Templar thaumaturgist Davaro of Theopolis discovered a "hidden frequency of corruption" emanating from certain Vaal relics brought to Oriath by Dominus, being able to hear them "sing" to him and describing them "as mirrors, dimly reflecting shadows and echoings of the past".

He traveled to an ancient Vaal ruin, possibly led by the "singing" of his relics. With his thaumaturgy, he was granted a "special sight" of the ancient Vaal city that used to exist there.

I saw the ancient Vaal city that once stood in this place. All around me were signs of the legendary Queen Atziri ruling from afar. I saw, as I stood at the base of a great pyramid, the sacrifice of new harvest unfold. The steps ran red with a river of blood, a crimson tide, cascading towards me and washing over my skin.

— Davaro, "Research Journal" II

After this vision, Davaro was plagued by a sickness, described as a "blood marking". The relics that previously sang to him of power turned to screaming of hunger. He purchased three young Karui slaves and brought them back to the same ancient ruin, slitting their throats and sacrificing them to "Atziri's altar". As he did so, he was granted a vision of Queen Atziri herself, bathing in a "pool of blood".

Following this event, Davaro kidnapped two Oriathan children - one boy and one girl and sacrificed them to Atziri. As he did so, he dreamt of being united with Atziri as "Husband, Wife, Daughter, Son" in "eternity".[39]

Davaro was not the only one to have developed an obsession with Atziri after The Fall.[40]

NPC Text
"The Queen represents an odd island of stability that Chaos cannot comprehend. Almost all events come laden with possibility, but the history of her existence is a single unbroken course. There is no world, real or imagined, where Atziri did not lead our people to ruin.

She gazes into a mirror still, somewhere beyond the reach of my master, in a place of crimson madness and nightmare... my master adores the uncertainty of chance outcomes, but he abhors cosmic enigmas with no clear answer, especially when such enigmas seem to possess the power to impress determinism upon the fabric of existence."

The Trialmaster, "Atziri"

Splendid. Let's see what this page has to offer us... It talks of Queen Atziri. Now here's a portentous line:

She drenches her altars with the blood of those deranged enough to question her vision.

The next piece is a real eye-crosser, but I believe it refers to a 'communion', something to do with the harvest moon? Again, Doryani seems at the heart of it.

Good, this line I can read without issue:

This will be our final night of fear, our final night of suffering.

Sacrifice, communion, the harvest moon... an unsettling combination.

Siosa, "Page Two Translation"

Oh my, this first line is frighteningly clear:

Our Queen is dead. Doryani is dead. So many have fallen. So many have changed.

The latter text is almost indecipherable. It practically hums with agitation. Let me see... I can make out the words "sleep", "nightmare" and... "the Beast", whatever that may be. Our historian finishes with:

We have succeeded where our forebears did not. We have failed ourselves.

I need not imagine the fall of the Vaal. I saw the nightmare with my own eyes.

Siosa, "Page Three Translation"

Legend has it, Kishara got herself in some hot water with a certain Queen Atziri. Details are vague as to exactly how, but by all accounts, Atziri weren't the most understanding of lasses. Kishara, being the free spirited sort probably just pricked the royal arse with some spiky facts from the outside world. Almost lost her head for her trouble, Kishara. Atziri took her ship and made sacrifices of her crew. Forced the poor girlie into hiding.

Still, Kishara being of a wily inclination like meself, she slipped through Atziri's talons and right out of the empire. But before she left, Kishara hid the Star somewhere near the Causeway that leads into the old Vaal city up north, just in case she got caught, I suppose. Something like that in the hands of a tyrant like Atziri... who knows what trouble she might've found with it.

Weylam Roth, "Kishara"

The lost Temple of Atzoatl is said to be the most famed in all Vaal history and myth. Best I can tell, the Temple began its construction in the final years of the Vaal Empire. The exact date of its completion has been hard to ascertain as it occurred shortly before the events which brought about the civilisation's extinction.

Perhaps it is the fragility of the timeline that has made Atzoatl such a staple of Vaal mythology. Some say it was a place of darkness, home to the most vile of sacrifices. But there are others who claim the temple to be the birthplace of technology - even our own is said to pale in comparison to what was being forged within those walls.

Scholars today have even suggested that it was the treasure house for Queen Atziri herself. Whichever is true, it was bound to have been fiercely protected by fanatics and royalty alike. And if something's worth protecting, well, then it's worth bloody taking!

Alva, "Atzoatl"

Einhar would have fit into Atziri's empire quite nicely. The man's no stranger to ritual sacrifice, though thankfully he limits his bloodletting to beasts. He doesn't seem to have much of an interest in opulence, which is great news for me. As long as Einhar sticks to what he's best at, we'll get along fine.

Alva, "Einhar"

The Beast (lore) was never a cruel master. It didn't want to destroy, to corrupt, to terrorise. It simply existed to exist. I made it that way.

Unfortunately, in neglecting to provide it with ambition, I made it vulnerable to the ambitions of others. Queen Atziri and Doryani. Emperor Chitus and Malachai. Others even before them.

I created a Beast that would free humanity from the tyranny of the gods. Yet all I really did was provide the perfect tool with which humanity could tyrannise itself.

Sin, "The Beast"

Environmental Lore on Atziri

Environmental Lore Text
Book 1: Last of the Vaal Queens

"It has been written of Queen Atziri that her throne room was lined with mirrors and that she held court naked, demanding the same of those wishing her audience. The theory was that a naked man had nothing to hide, but one might easily venture that Atziri utilised her striking physical presence to influence courtly engagements in her favour."

A woman like Atziri, beautiful and naked, would be very difficult to refuse. The few statuettes and reliefs that remain depict her as a rare beauty, a young woman with exquisitely delicate features, large, mesmerizing eyes, and a full figure of intoxicating sensuality. Whether the depictions are realist or interpretive is unfortunately impossible to corroborate.

But who was the woman behind the title? The few surviving accounts on this matter contain two schools of thought on the matter. Some speak of Atziri with adoration, touting her as a visionary, the woman who would lead the Vaal into a brighter future. Others are less kind, suggesting that Atziri's love for herself overshadowed any love for her people. If her court of mirrors truly existed, however, then the latter seems more likely. Vanity, after all, is the most insidious of all Sins.

Only one thing can be said for certain of Atziri: she was the last Queen of the Vaal. The trail of history ends during her reign, some four hundred years preceding the Imperialus Conceptus."

— Trinian - Intellectus Prime, "The Ancients", Book 1: Last of the Vaal Queens

Book 3: The Queen's Thaumaturgist

"In a culture festooned with gems and steeped in thaumaturgy, Doryani must have had quite the exceptional mind to rise to such preeminence as he did. Or perhaps he was simply more ruthless than his counterparts. Such is the impression one tends to garner from the accounts written of events following Zerphi's death.

Atziri's orders are quoted in a number of different texts. Doryani was "to make any effort within the realms of possibility, and to act without fear of question or consequence". And to what was Doryani expected to apply this supreme effort? The investigation of Zerphi's longevity and youthful vitality.

There is a particularly chilling manifest, containing endless lists of names, page upon page. The names of young men and women, ranging in age from sixteen to twenty-six, sent to Doryani for "processing". Only those of "full and recent maturity" were deemed capable of accommodating the "necessary procedures" required without succumbing to "premature expiration".

Yes, Queen Atziri was prepared to slaughter her own people in the desperate pursuit of perpetual youth and beauty. Vanity, indeed, is the most insidious of all Sins."

— Trinian - Intellectus Prime, "The Ancients", Book 6: Imperialus Conceptus

"Tarcus Veruso descended from the mountains and his eighty thousand tribesmen and women through the doomlands to Azala Vaal. There he planted his banner upon Atziri's grave and with these words founded our great and eternal empire."

— Trinian - Intellectus Prime, "The Ancients", Book 3: The Queen's Thaumaturgist

"I had nothing. I was nothing. I sold my flesh to survive. Today, my flesh belongs to my Queen."

— Unnamed Vaal, Vaal Letter VII

"There was no escape for me. Should our Queen and her thaumaturge succeed, there will be no escape for anyone."

— Unnamed Vaal, Vaal Letter VIII

File:Research Journal screenshot.png "Through my thaumaturgy, I was granted special sight, I saw the ancient Vaal city that once stood in this place. All around me were signs of the legendary Queen Atziri ruling from afar. I saw, as I stood at the base of a great pyramid, the sacrifice of new harvest unfold. The steps ran red with a river of blood, a crimson tide, cascading towards me and washing over my skin. In it, I felt my being shake, as if lightning was reverberating through my body. I felt the strength of that blood ritual, and then returning to my senses, I found myself once more standing in ancient ruins. I thought it to be all a dream, only, when I reached up to touch my face, I found it both horrifyingly and marvelously, pelted with that same salted vermillion."

— Templar Davaro of Theopolis, "Research Journal" II

"I purchased three Karui slaves from the marketplace the other morning. Strapping young lads of seventeen. At the blood site in the ancient ruins, they pleaded with me. Something about the place, the corruption engrained in the stonework... it spoke to them, and they knew. The powers demand blood, so I gave it to them. I opened the throats of those Karui lads and poured out their essence onto Atziri's altar. As the sanguine liquid was sucked up by the stone, my mind frayed and I saw the Queen herself, naked and aroused, bathing in a pool of blood while her hand reached between her thighs.

I... I can't shake her image from my mind, even now as I lay on my bed, I shiver with fear and anticipation. I have never felt lust for a woman in this magnitude. I fear the Queen shall be the death of me. When I close my eyes I see her, reaching out to embrace me."

— Templar Davaro of Theopolis, "Research Journal" III

"My beautiful Queen is all I see. She dwells in another world, I know this now. Our worlds are separate realities, but not entirely ones without doors and bridges to offer transport. In our dreams we make love amidst the coagulation of our victims blood. The red is our passion and the gore has become our wedding bed. ..."

"...They are both silent now. Unmoving. And shortly I will join them, and together we shall unite with my queen - a happy family. Husband, Wife, Daughter, Son. My knife still drips beside me. I leave this final account in hopes that those who may find us will yearn for the same pleasures I have found, and join us in eternity."
