  • Who are those people from Invoker spells lore?


    Sadron's Protracted Frisson.

    Myrault's Hinder-Gast

    Claws of Tornarus

    Endoleon's Malevolent Perturbation
    Shimare's Extractive Pulse (Only as voice line)

    Gaster's Mandate of Impetuous Strife

    Tarak's Descent of Fire
    Gallaron's Abyssal Carnesphere (Only as voice line)

    Harlek's Incantation of Incineration

    Culween's Most Cunning Fabrications

    Killing Wall of Koryx

    Buluphont's Aureal Incapacitator

    My guess will be that those ten are "Insubstantial Eleven " with Invoker as eleventh from Rubic's Lore:
    Spoiler: 

    Any mage can cast a spell or two, and a few may even study long enough to become a wizard, but only the most talented are allowed to be recognized as a Magus. Yet as with any sorcerer’s circle, a sense of community has never guaranteed competitive courtesy.

    Already a renowned duelist and scholar of the grander world of sorcery, it had never occurred to Rubick that he might perhaps be Magus material until he was in the midst of his seventh assassination attempt. As he casually tossed the twelfth of a string of would-be killers from a high balcony, it dawned on him how utterly unimaginative the attempts on his life had become. Where once the interruption of a fingersnap or firehand might have put a cheerful spring in his step, it had all become so very predictable. He craved greater competition. Therefore, donning his combat mask, he did what any wizard seeking to ascend the ranks would do: he announced his intention to kill a Magus.

    Rubick quickly discovered that to threaten one Magus is to threaten them all, and they fell upon him in force. Each antagonist's spell was an unstoppable torrent of energy, and every attack a calculated killing blow. But very soon something occurred that Rubick's foes found unexpected: their arts appeared to turn against them. Inside the magic maelstrom, Rubick chuckled, subtly reading and replicating the powers of one in order to cast it against another, sowing chaos among those who had allied against him. Accusations of betrayal began to fly, and soon the sorcerers turned one upon another without suspecting who was behind their undoing.

    When the battle finally drew to a close, all were singed and frozen, soaked and cut and pierced. More than one lay dead by an ally’s craft. Rubick stood apart, sore but delighted in the week’s festivities. None had the strength to argue when he presented his petition of assumption to the Hidden Council, and the Insubstantial Eleven agreed as one to grant him the title of Grand Magus.

    Maybe Invoker then killed them to get all their spells and become the one and only.

    Well obviously they're the people who invented the spells. Whether or not they're the Hidden Council or not remains to be seen.

      I added the missing voice links. Feel free to edit them into first post.


      Nice find! Hopefully in future we will learn more about it
      I never really paid attention. Didn't know he was shouting names when invoking spells.

        i guess that name of spells creator, and invoker never kill them all but he is only the one who can invoke that all spell, see Rubick's lore "Rubick quickly discovered that to threaten one Magus is to threaten them all"

          I always assumed that invoker's colorful spell names was a reference to wizard-named spells in games like D&D, with spells like "Bigby's Grasping Hand" and "Mordenkainen's Disjunction". Invoker's lore states that he has known more spells but purged them from his mind to make room for more useful ones, so I doubt it has any specific connection to the "Insubstantial Eleven". It's an interesting idea though.

            I believe it should indicate that all of his skills were learned in the different time.

              Well i think it's quite probable that he learned that spells from their creators but i doubt he killed them.

                Well Invoker is only special because he has the mental capacity to learn a ludicrous amount of spells and his unnaturally long lifespan. We can conclude that the names are of the original creators of the spells and Invoker deigned them worthy enough to remember and incant. Also Harlek is an asshole for inventing Sunstrike.

                  Invokers lifespan comes from a spell/ritual he casted on himself, but he himself doesn't know if its an immortality or longevity spell.

                      But isn't Invoker too? XD

                      despite valve made him as human, he literally acts like Altmer :P (High Elf for who does not know about skyrim)

                        You know the High Elves aren't JUST from Skrimity Skrom, right? And yes, Invoker is a pompous asshole.

                          I know. However, high elves (in some other games/books/etc) are not arrogant like they are in skyrim, and Invoker suits an Altmer perfectly.

                            Umm, reddit seems to have an idea that Gallaron and Tarak are the same person. So is Shimare and Endoleon.

                            I'll go with this. I think that they are the progenitors of magic too, the first magi. If they are members of the Insubstantial Eleven I'll say that they are named so because they are ghosts, or go the Harry Potter style, portraits. Meaning that they are long gone from the world and the mages, wizards, and sorcerers asks their counsel from time to time.

                            If Valve ever decides to make them the insubstantial eleven, then I hope they go with this route:

                            Harlek, the Solar Magus
                            Shimare Endoleon, the Energy Magus
                            Sadron, the Gelid Magus
                            Gallaron Tarak, the Magus of Disaster
                            Culween, the Magus of the Forge
                            Gaster, the Magus of War
                            Tornarus, the Zephyr Magus
                            Koryx, the Magus of Glaciers
                            Myrault, the Phantom Magus
                            Buluphont, the Sound Magus
                            Unknown 11th member, maybe Aghanim, Magus of Amelioration

                            I doubt Invoker is a member since he does not seem to care about society it seems. He's merely amusing himself every day so I doubt if he will bother to rule over the world of sorcery. I'll say he was honored with the title Arsenal Magus by the Hidden Council but he decided not to use it, just because.

                              Invoker learned the spells and only remembered the ones he deemed usefull, forgetting others. So its suggesting that the spells he has are spells from other mages which Invoker has learned to master. I also like how Invokers lore explains why most heroes have only four abilities and how special it is to even know one spell for that matter:

                              The greatest mages in those days were the ones blessed with the greatest memories, and yet so complex were the invocations that all wizards were forced to specialize. The most devoted might hope in a lifetime to have adequate recollection of three spells—four at most. Ordinary wizards were content to know two, and it was not uncommon for a village mage to know only one—with even that requiring him to consult grimoires as an aid against forgetfulness on the rare occasions when he might be called to use it.
