The Zealots were fanatical worshipers of Dormammu, led by Kaecilius. They sought to expand the Dark Dimension into Earth.

Practitioners of Eldritch magic and former Masters of the Mystic Arts, the Zealots staged an assault against the Masters of the Mystic Arts. Although the Zealots were able to kill the Ancient One and successfully destroy all three sanctums, Doctor Strange bargained with Dormammu, granting the Zealots immortality as Mindless Ones.
