Whisper was a human cleric of The Cabal on Dominaria.


Growing up on the streets of Estark, the girl who would become Whisper wanted only one thing: the power to escape. She joined The Cabal at the first opportunity, intentionally cultivating her namesake habit of speaking quietly so others would be forced to lean toward her. Cruel and charismatic, she rose to become one of the demonlord's favored priests, leading elaborate ceremonies in the heart of the Stronghold itself.[1]

Legacy Curse[]

Whisper enchanted a blade with the Legacy Curse, which would afflict its victims' entire bloodline. With it, she led the Cabal in a raid on the village of Seven Sisters. There, she disturbed the grave of Harald Capashen,[2] priming it for an attack on the Capashens.[3] Knight-Sergeant Leobard led Benalish forces to drive her and the Cabal out of the village.[2]

When she found out Danitha Capashen planned to battle the Cabal at Korlich Pass, she passed the blade to Josu Vess, who successfully struck Danitha with it, inflicting the curse on the Capashen bloodline.[4] When Josu was destroyed later, the blade was recovered and Rafwyn Capashen was able to lift its curse.[5]


Whisper identified Gideon as an invader in the Stronghold's fighting pit. During the prisoner rebellion she was killed by Radha, who was a prisoner of The Cabal and was released with the help of Gideon and Chandra.[6]
