Former Adherent Sage
|Location||Sethekk Hollow, Spires of Arak|
Ikiss is the leader of the Sethekk, a cult of arakkoa who worship the dead god Sethe, the very same being who cursed them into their broken, flightless state. Ikiss is obsessed with the ancient arakkoa king Terokk, and has gone as far as to give himself the title of Talon King and claim that he is Terokk reborn.
Ikiss was once a respected sage of the Adherents of Rukhmar, but he began to research the truth behind Terokk's downfall, which had been covered up by the Adherents. One day Ikiss sought out the Outcast sage Reshad to receive a scroll from him, one detailing the true history of Terokk and the arakkoa and not the lies from the Adherents, but he was found by Adherent soldiers and captured. Before he was taken, Ikiss ranted and raved to an arakkoa named Viryx that it was all a lie.
Ikiss was banished by the Adherents and thrown into the pools at the Sethekk Hollow, mutating him and transforming him into a broken, flightless arakkoa. After his fall, Ikiss became completely obsessed with Terokk and thought himself to be Terokk's reincarnation. A cult known as the Sethekk grew up around him and the worship of Sethe. In his insanity, Ikiss collected many relics belonging to Terokk, including a heavy bangle he had once worn that had been crafted by his daughter, Lithic.
At the time of the war in Draenor, the Sethekk were attempting to summon the great dread raven god Anzu from the darkness, in order to bind him to Sethe's will so that he may cast a shadow across the world. Anzu's spirit in the darkness is called upon by the Arakkoa Outcasts, and he orders the death of Ikiss before his cult can succeed in calling his physical body back to Draenor.
