- "'Death to Illyria' shouted their king -- shortly before I tore his hearts out from his throat."
Baticus' father was an Old One and the king of the Darque Wurms. An enemy of Illyria, he led a massive rebellion against her, launching an attack on Illyria's own temple, Vahla ha'nesh. However, Illyria and her Army defeated the Darque wurms, with Illyria executing the king of the Darque wurms by tearing out his multiple hearts from his throat as an example to others not to rise against her.
