Al Azif is a persona inspired by the magic tome of the same name. The tome of forbidden knowledge was mentioned in “The Hound,” a tale written by H.P. Lovecraft. The term azif denotes the nocturnal noises made by insects. The sound was believed to be the moans of daemons.
In the tale, its fictional author, Abdul Alhazred, who earned the nickname “Mad Arab,” was a devout follower of cosmic entities. Many strange events occurred to Alhazred in his final years in Damascus. According to Ebn Khallikan, a 12th century biographer, Alhazred met his untimely demise at the hands of an invisible monster in broad daylight.
Unlike the other third evolution persona, Al Azif possibly takes an entirely new appearance that was built from scratch. Still, the closest in design to Al Azif is Necronomicon, since both persona hover in the air.
