Emperor Ganag Zor, commonly known as Emperor Zor and Zor, is a Cabal aristocrat of the Cabal Praetorate. He was responsible for a majority of the events preceding Calus' rule as Emperor, even being the one responsible for the Leviathan's creation, the exile of the Empress before Calus and the rise of the greater Golden Legion. Throughout the years, Zor was given a reputation of bringing order from chaos and was feared by his own species.

During the later inaugurations of Calus and Ghaul, Zor and his Legion were would begin to lose power, however, it would not destabilize his pride and hope for glory. From the shadows, Zor continued to raise his Legion from the ashes of Calus' and Ghaul's failed rules of Emperor and Dominus, eventually raising an army far greater than the likes of the Red Legion and the later Shadow Legion in hopes to make his claim for the imperial crown.


Spawn of a Legend[edit]

"You ever heard of the legend of Zoraeleus? He was my ancestor. Zoraeleus claimed his own sun and used it as a Dyson Sphere.... or laser? My father wasn't about specifics. My father was named after him through that legend."
— Xar'aram Phaelus, Traitor to the Legion

Ganag Zor was born into a luxurious family within the Cabal Empire. At a young age, his parents would offer him to the aristocrats of the Praetorate as tribute, who saw the great potential in the young Ganag. He would be under watch by the aristocrats and was taught lessons to grow his own strength and power.

At some point, he would be offered a War Beast as his own pet. Seeing that his attention was slowly being drawn more to his pet than his own lessons, the Praetorate forced his War Beast to attack Ganag, leaving a scar on his left eye. Ganag would be forced to kill his own War Beast and grow a grudge against the members of the Praetorate. When he became of age, Ganag joined the ranks of Praetorate. During his inauguration, Ganag invited a dozen Colossi soldiers to the meeting and had them fire onto the members of the Praetorate, declaring that Ganag was dead and he was now Zor.

Rise of the Golden Legion[edit]

"There was only one legion in my time, my legion, the Golden Legion. I saw to it that they conquered entire galaxies in my name with the Golden Fleet. Many worlds fell in their wake, nothing stood against them."
— Zor

Zor would eventually appoint new members into the Praetorate, one of which he would become close friends with, the Consul. With his newfound power, Zor sought to revive the dying Golden Legion and make it the personal army of the Praetorate. He would attempt and fail to revive the ancient Golden Fleet to begin a new Era of Conquest.

Zor would grow a fascination with one of the races that was subjugated by the Cabal, being the Psions. He would come across one of the Freeborns known as Qodan and became acquainted with them. He would learn much of the history of the Psions from Qodan, especially the ancient religions like their worship of Nezarec.

Inauguration of Emperor Calus[edit]

"I searched high and low searching for Zor within the wastelands. Many believed he died during the slaughter of the Council, others believed he committed suicide, deep down I know he is still out there, plotting to regain his former power."
— The Consul

The Dominus[edit]

"Death to Ghaul for he took the throne from the glorious Zor! Death to the Dominus!"
— Unknown

Seeding the Skyburners[edit]

"Some would say the Golden Legion controlled the Skyburners. To those who have said it were correct, my brother after all took entire fleets worth of em to take down thousands of War moons."
— Unknown

Arrival in Sol[edit]

"The Red Legion were only the beginning of what was to come, while the Red Legion held the inner sector, the Golden Legion went outward to plunder the secrets of the system."
— Unknown

Death of the Dominus[edit]

"Good riddance to the Dominus, he wanted to be blessed by a god when he wasn't worthy enough to claim it. Did he not know when it comes to the Light and Dark, something must be taken in order to be given?"
— Zor

Glory to the Emperor[edit]

"So Calus comes in as we are on the verge of gaining control of MY empire?! Send him to the grave where he should've went centuries ago!"
— Zor

The Golden Empire[edit]

"Io, Mars, Mercury, Europa, Venus, Earth. We are nearly close to controlling this system, what we need is to make a statement of our might. I believe Olympus Mons may be the perfect candidate."
— Zor



  • Zor's personality appears to be a mix of both Ghaul and Calus due to his brute-like tendencies and his lavish taste for opulence, splendor and glory.
    • This adds onto the fact that he wears regal armor and adornments similar to Ghaul and Calus.
  • Zor is by far one of the largest Cabal ever encountered, appearing only slightly taller than Calus in Desperate Measures.
