World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Talon King Ikiss
A couple of treehouses don’t make a home, but it was vast improvement over the Sethekk Halls.
Comfortable as it was in Shattrath. I can’t bring myself to return to my true home in Skettis without my sister. She’s still trapped in the Sethekk Halls, held prisoner by our older brother.
> Who is Talon King Ikiss?
Isfar: ‘Talon King’ Ikiss is one of the leaders of the Sethekk, along with my brother, Darkweaver Syth.
It was they who led the exodus of the Sethekk from Skettis to the ruins of Auchindoun. In the beginning, Ikiss was a charismatic leader, but he has descended into madness.
Now, he openly proclaims that he is Terokk reborn! He truly expects the arakkoa to bend knee to him as their ruler. Can you believe his arrogance?
> Who are the Sethekk?
Isfar: The Sethekk believe themselves to be the true and most loyal followers of the master of all arakkoa. Do not ask about the master, for his mysteries are for the feathered people alone.
The Sethekk interpreted the destruction of Auchindoun to be the arrival of our master on this planet. They set out for the ruins, taking with them the relics of our greatest hero, Terokk.
They still seek the master in the temple’s ruins, but I came to see through their lies. I am no longer one of them.
> Who is this Terokk you keep mentioning?
Isfar: He is the greatest hero the arakkoa have ever known.
It is said that in ancient times, he built the city of Skettis with his own claws. He was our greatest champion and defender, but he left us when we turned away from the veneration of Rukhmar.
We came to worship a new master, one who promised us untold power and status in the cosmos.
There are some who say that Terokk and Rukhmar are one, and he withdrew his presence from us when we turned away from him.
