The Zukaja, also known as the "Seventh Lord of Duske," was the long-prophesied son of two powerful types of vampires - a Tryk Queen and a Daywalker. The prophecy, part of vampire religion, declared that the powerful vampire race known as Tryks would ascend to their rightful place as rulers of the twin realms. The prophecy further stated that the Zukaja would be the king of these conquering Tryks.

One part of this prophecy (or perhaps one version of it) specifically holds that the Zakuja will be born to the Tryk queen Cilla.

The Zukaja has never actually been seen. This presumably powerful vampire being - a sort of vampire Messiah - has only been spoken of in prophecies which have yet to come to pass, despite much effort on the part of various evil religious vampires to bring it to pass.
