The Voiceless are a specific group of cultists that attained a fraction of Elder powers after consuming the bones of a long dead Elder God. Their throats grew and covered their bodies in a manner so gruesome, and after some weeks, like a larval insect, the throat tissue putrefies and falls apart, revealing a slug that communicates with its kin by way of splashing sounds.
It is unknown whether they serve a purpose in the grand scheme of things, but for now, they seem to keep to the depths, sucking on to the bones of other dead Gods. Perhaps they wish for a higher rank, or more power.
But what is more powerful than immortality in a world full of deadly surprises?
