Zangurak is a wise and powerful leader, being the first in history to unite the Gurak race as one. However, when humans become involved he quickly shows his cruelty and hatred for the human race. Despite his hatred of the human race, his secret collaboration with Dagran and manipulation of Jirall shows that he's not against using or forming alliances with human, so long as they are of use. Also, despite the Gurak citizens seeing him as a hero for uniting the Gurak race, the fact that he leaves his people to be attacked by the human in Lazulis' invasion of the Gurak continent implies that he does not truly care about his people - or any race for that matter - if they are of no use to him, as stated by Zael. Though he has a mutual harted toward Zael, he appears to have a mild respect for him and had even offered Zael to join him.
