Sheoldred, known as the Whispering One is the Praetor of the Black Faction of the Phyrexian Invasion on Mirrodin.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Sheoldred speaks only in whispers. She is a small humanoid female attached to a large jaw which is used as a mount that she is capable of removing herself from. The black-aligned faction, led for the moment by Sheoldred, had one goal: enslave. Believers would serve. Unbelievers would be made to serve. All would bow to Phyrexia.

Besides her rank as a praetor, she was part of a unique affiliation in Phyrexianised Mirrodin, known as the Seven Steel Thanes. The thanes appear to serve little more than as warlords of the Black faction, with no observable utility for the rest of Phyrexia and actually each thane intends to take over the plane. Using knowledge and secrecy to advance herself, Sheoldred intended to become omnipotent, but being in direct competition with equally ruthless thanes like Geth it was equally possible that she would fail.

Ultimately, Elesh Norn laid waste to her domain.[2] It's unknown if Sheoldred still lives.
