Skins

MalzaharSquare.png Shadow Prince Malzahar [S|L]
MalzaharSquare.png Vizier Malzahar [S|L]
  • It is a reference to a title often held in Middle-Eastern governments, following his Middle-Eastern themes.
MalzaharSquare.png Djinn Malzahar [S|L]
  • It is an alternative spelling reference of Jinn. In Middle Eastern culture and Islamic mythology, the (d)jinn are fire spirits similar to angels who rebelled against Allah (God) in ancient times.

  • It may be a reference to the Overlord video game franchise. His voidling represents the minions that serve The Overlord with their armor on.
