Silchas Ruin

 

description

 

"A vast bone white dragon... if anything larger than Scabandari" (MT HB pg 2)

 

"Silchas Ruin, third and last of Mother Dark's three children" (MT HB pg 5)

 

 

'...a figure was standing upon the trail. Skin the colour of bleached linen, tall as an Edur, a face obscured by dark streaks, as if blood-stained fingers had drawn down the gaunt cheeks. An apparition, the dull red eyes burning from those deep sockets dead. Mould hung in ragged sheets from rotting armour. Two scabbards, both empty.'(MT UK TB, p.134)

 

'Soletaken but oh so much draconic blood. Tiam’s own. Bone-white scales, the red of wounds smeared like misty paint, monstrously huge, the dragon the Wyval had chosen to follow loomed

alongside them...Silchas Ruin. Tiste Andii, who fed in the wake of his brother – fed on Tiam’s blood, and drank deep. Deeper than Anomander Rake by far. Darkness and chaos. He would have accepted the burden of godhood...had he been given the chance.'(MT UK TB, p.143)

  

 

Hull Beddict: 'Of what do you accuse her (Seren Pedac), ghost?'

 

Silchas Ruin: 'A thousand. A thousand upon a thousand misdeeds. Her. You. Your kind. The gods are as nothing. Demons less than children. Every Ascendant an awkward mummer. Compared to you. Is it ever the way, I wonder? That depravity thrives in the folds of a flower, when its season has come. The secret seeds of decay hidden beneath the burgeoning glory. All of us, here in your wake, we are as nothing.'(MT UK TB, p.135)

  

'A head or more taller than the Tiste Edur Soletaken, yet terribly gaunt, muscles bound like rope beneath smooth, almost translucent skin. Talons from some raptor gleamed in the warrior's thick, long white hair. The red of his eyes seemed feverish, so brightly did it glow.' (MT TB, p.3)

 

'Eleint! Soletaken but oh so much draconic blood. Tiam's own. Silchas Ruin. Tiste Andii, who fed in the wake of his brother - fed on Tiam's blood, and drank deep. Deeper than Anomander Rake by far. Darkness and chaos. He would have accepted the burden of godhood... had he been given the chance.'(MT TB, p.143)

 

Silchas broken swords : ‘They were shattered,’ the Betrayer said. ‘Long ago. Fragments scattered across a battlefield. Why would anyone want them? Those broken shards can never be reunited. They are, each and every one, now folded in on themselves. So, I wonder, what did he do with them?’ (MT UK Tpb 85)

  

Ventrala (the Krisnan)observation on Silchas Ruin : '..A Soletaken Tiste Andii with two knife wounds in his back, wounds that will not heal. Yet.. he forebears.' (RG UKHb, p.101)

 

“Silchas Ruin’s dread secret.  He parleyed with the Nah’ruk.  There was this civil war going on, you see….” (RG)
