Little is known yet of the Silent Servants, a Dreadgod cult. They seek power from the monstrous Silent King, a white tiger the size of a house.


  • They follow the Dreadgod known as the Silent King, a white tiger with a dream aura halo. The Tiger is bound on Everwood Continent by scripts and tree roots formed by the Monarch Emriss Silentborn
  • The Silent King creates vast networks of mind control, supposedly peaceful. (Reaper, ch 23)
  • The cultists bind their mouths shut. Their mouths are bound. They probably create illusions, but we have yet to see this.

Cult Leader

A Herald leads the Silent Servants. Little more info is known, but the Herald is a swordswoman. In the ambush at Sky’s Edge, four Dreadgod cult leaders at Herald or Sage level battled one newborn Monarch, Akura Fury (Wintersteel ch 26)

Chunks of the surrounding mountains hurled themselves at Fury, courtesy of the Abyssal Palace Herald. The Herald of Redmoon Hall struck with waves of bloody needles like crimson cloud banks, while the Herald of the Silent Servants cut at Fury with endless slashes of a white sword that lit up the sky. The Stormcallers had no Herald, but one Sage. It was hard for Lindon to follow the exact details of the fight, but the Sage of Calling Storms seemed to be wrestling against Fury’s authority, opposing whenever Fury made one of his echoing commands.

Lindon could feel the will pressing down on Fury, constraining him. The newborn Monarch kept fighting.

Palms of shadow struck at the side of the Abyssal Palace fortress, sending it careening to the side. A blazing ball of inky shadow crashed into the swordswoman Herald of the Silent Servants, and she had to focus all her power on keeping it from annihilating her. Throughout the battle, Fury’s laughter echoed. (Wintersteel ch 26)


Kenvata Nasuma Junvari competed in the 18th Uncrowned King Tournament and lost

“Kenvata Nasuma Juvari of the Silent Servants, chosen of Reigan Shen, you face Sopharanatoth of the gold dragons, chosen of the Dragon King!” Kenvata—or Juvari, Lindon wasn’t sure which was her family name and which her personal one—was a short woman in a plain white robe. A shawl covered her head, and between that and the cloth wrapping her mouth, the only visible parts of her were her dark eyes. (Wintersteel chapter 5)

Her Dream Technique

Kenvata Nasuma Junvari competed in the 18th Uncrowned King Tournament

Lindon had trained against a simulation of Juvari. Once. Her entire Path was based around mimicking the dream Ruler techniques of the Silent King, the most subtle and insidious of the Dreadgods, so Lindon had thought she might pose a challenge for Dross. She didn’t. Dross could always hold her influence off long enough for Lindon to cut her in half with dragon’s breath. (Wintersteel chapter 5)


dream aura. The cultists use dream madra to power their advancement in the Sacred Arts. They probably gain the ability to create illusions.

Mount Samara in Sacred Valley

Dream aura of the Silent King is probably associated with the white ring around Mount Samara in Sacred Valley and the illusion Paths developed by Elder Whisper and used by the Wei clan.

Dreadgod Cults

Each Dreadgod cult is comprised of parasitic sacred artists who follow their dreadful monster and benefit from the destruction it creates. The Paths of each different cult uses aspects from their Dreadgods, borrowing power from them to create Blood Shadows, Living Lightning, Stone Spires, etc. etc.

  1. Redmoon Hall, with their Blood Shadows in a thousand different forms. The Bleeding Phoenix
  2. Abyssal Palace, their faces concealed beneath hoods and stony masks. Wandering Titan
  3. Silent Servants, whose mouths are bound. Silent King
  4. Stormcallers, who ring their arms in scripts that crackle with lightning. Weeping Dragon
