|Faction||Ruler of Dictionopolis|
|Status||King of Dictionopolis|
Milo and Tock arrive in Dictionopolis and meet King Azaz, just in time for the Royal Banquet. King Azaz tells them about how cool words can be. After he finishes explaining, King Azaz tells them about his relationship with his brother, the Mathemagician.The King sends them off with a bag of words and ideas, then they go off for Digitopolis.
Later, King Azaz is seen at the celebration after saving Rhyme and Reason. He and the Mathemagician agree that words and numbers are equally important.
Unlike the Mathemagician, King Azaz is a much less patient a teacher than his brother, and the lessons that he teaches leave Milo rather confused. He makes Milo try to order meals without explaining how eating words works and doesn't show Milo how to make a "tast[y] speech" – which leads to a very unappetizing meal for Milo. King Azaz only tells him what he did wrong after the fact.
Like the Mathemagician, King Azaz lets Milo go on a quest he knows is "impossible", but he doesn't send Milo away empty-handed. Instead, he gives Milo a treasured box of "all the words [he] know[s]". The box is like a big dictionary. It doesn't give Milo complex ideas, but it gives him the ability to come up with interesting thoughts and encourages him to do so. "With these words," Azaz tells him, "you may ask all the questions which have never been answered and answer all the questions which have never been asked". This means that the ideas aren't really there yet, so Milo has to create them for himself. Basically, this is more or less the whole point of Milo's journey: to take simple things and make something interesting out of them.
Physically, Azaz is an imposing person. In the book, King Azaz appears as a short man and wears a crown along with what a king would wear. But in the movie, the king wears a red robe and has a gray mustache.
