"Ours is not to question, nor falter. Only to act, in the name of the Empress."
Grand Vizier Klik'thik Zor'lok, also known as The Voice, is the acting leader of the Mantid species in the Highbreed Empire. He is an ancient, tall creature of immense wisdom and tactical genius, not to mention arcane skill. He stands as equal with Lei Shen the Thunder King and High Priest Jalak in the hierarchy of the Highbreed.
Zor'lok was the one put in charge of defeating the Anannaki in ancient times. Though he and his mantid were largely successful against the Anannaki, they were outsmarted and defeated in the end. The Grand Vizier takes this defeat very personally, and has since vowed to redeem himself in the eyes of the Thunder King.
Zor'lok has been enlightened by many millenia of living, and as a result, has become comparable to a god in his power. His arcane power is surpassed only by Jalak, and his tactical prowess by none. He is swift, cunning and decisive, while still retaining an uncanny sense for patience. This puts him as the finest mind in the Highbreed Empire. He is not, however, the leader of the entire mantid race. As Grand Vizier, he is simply a representative on behalf of his superior, the Empress Shek'zeer.
