Though none but Archaon know it, the Gaunt Summoner known as the Tongueless Lord is bound by his true name, Set'tyra'ex, and is forbidden to speak. After his voice was stolen by Archaon, the sorcerer turned his wrath upon the Mortal Realms, taking from his victims what had been taken from him. He draws endless pleasure from seeing his enemies struck mute, and often during the Age of Chaos the Tongueless Lord stood before an unnaturally silent battlefield, the agony of the dying and the rage of their killers painted upon faces with mouths open in soundless screams. Archaon has even been known to turn Set'tyra'ex’s talents upon his own lords, ordering the wizard to steal their voices if he grows tired of their utterances. Then, should they continue to displease the Everchosen, the Gaunt Summoner calls upon his repertoire of mutating magic to warp their flesh, all in utter silence, save the deep rumble of Archaon’s cruel laughter.
