Standing upon a heavy set of arachnid treads, jeweled with gold bands, the mighty Qiraji Prophet rises tall and looming. Covered with a stole of insect chitin, and decorated with accesories made of bone, obsidian and gold throughout his massive torso. His head is covered with a cap and his face hidden behind a silk mask, pale white like the colour of his blank eyes. Two long dark antennaes fall down from behind his head, twitching and vibrating when he links himself to the hive mind.
The prophet makes no effort in hiding its power, shadow and arcane magic radiates from his being.
Vaeeil hatched thousands of years ago right after Ahn'Qiraj was built. He had impressive powers and showed unrelenting devotion for the Old One. Harbinger Skyriss and Prophet Skeram were his mentors.
Once of age, he set off into Silithus in search of a Night Elf known as Xannos. Xannos was an incredible fighter who hunted the Silithids and Aqir alike of the region, and being overall, a thorn on the Kingdom of Ahn'Qiraj's backside. Vaeeil watched as the brood of Silithids under his command were obliterated by the Night Elf. He was fascinated with his fury and passion and had a better idea instead of killing him, he would capture him and convert him onto their side. Using all the energy he could muster, he drove Xannos into the temple of Ahn'Qiraj and forced him into a chrysalis, from where he would hatch anew, blessed (or cursed) with Aqir abilities and submissive to C'thun's will.
The procedure was slow, hundreds of ages went by as Vaeeil worked on the chrysalis, giving little results. It was then when he realized he would have to spare part of his power to acomplish what he desired, and thus he sacrificed a small portion of his great self to Xannos' chrysalis.
However, when Prophet Skeram found out Vaeeil had given part of his power to a non-Aqir being, he was greately dissapointed in him and binded him with the rank of "Lesser Prophet" for eternity, a wound that to this day still clings on him.
Too much time went on as the last Awakening of the Qiraji occured. Xannos had hatched several thousands of years ago from his prison and fought alongside the Qiraji, wielding his new Aqir powers into the battlefield. Yet to some controversy, as some of his "Retreats" were a bit too much "Strategic". Nonetheless, he was a fearsome foe and no one dared to speak their mind in his presence. He had also formed a bond with General Rajaxx before his demise.
The Lesser Prophet Vaeeil on the other hand was tending the temple when the siege on Ahn'Qiraj begun, and was cut off before he could reach C'thun's lair to stop the battle, bringing yet more dissapointment in himself.
Ten years later he would emerge from the temple, mustering all the conviction he could blossom in his cold and dark heart, and rally all the surviving Qiraji and Silithid troops to his command.
After the fall of the twin Aqir emperors Vek'lor and Vek'nilash, three "Imperators" have risen from the ruins of Ahn'Qiraj with desire of power and lands for themselves. These mighty Qiraji managed to survive the Wars of the Shifting Sands and at this new Awakening they bring their swarms forward, failure will not be an option to their eyes.
- Imperator Arkuun: Also called "The Sandstorm", this agile and steadfast Gladiator has proven to be one of the most relentless Qiraji warlords in the history of Ahn'Qiraj. Known for having owned dozens of Silithid and Qiraji broods alike, he marches into battle with minions that emphasize mobility and aerial domination. They do not have the brute strength of other swarms, but their speed and agility compensate for this deficiency. The Arkuunians regard conquest and loyalty highly.
"Unending, Unbridled, the true Swarm." -Imperator Arkuun, the Sandstorm
- Imperator Shukun'ox: The most controversive of the three, the mighty Shukun'ox has proven to be the strongest warrior in Ahn'Qiraj. Having been birthed in the same spawning pool as general Rajaxx, he holds massive influence among the military commanders, having crushed all those that dared challenge his might, and has eventually risen to the status of Imperator. His swarm is extremely voracious and revel in slaughter, mayhem and superiority. Only the strongest may dwell among them. Their shells are painted a tone of black that resembles umbra and march beside thick scorpions into battle.
"Fear is for the enemy! Fear and death!" -General Rajaxx
- Imperator Ska'nox: The first of the "Slaymasters" ( Gladiators with Mindslaying abilities ), Ska'nox brought forth a mystical and intellectual cult into the temple of Ahn'Qiraj to restore its purity and glory. The Ska'noxxian warriors aren't the strongest, yet their Mindslayers are the most brutal spellcasters in Ahn'Qiraj. They are followed by Mindhunters, wasps with magic resistant chitin that focus in disabling enemy spellcasters. Most of the Ska'noxxian hatchlings aspire to become harbringers. (How adorable.)
"The screams of the dying will fill the air! A symphony of terror is about to begin!" -Prophet Skeram
Currently: Amassing troops at the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. - Being constantly bombarded by dreams and nightmares of unclear futures. - Not tolerating failure by any means.
