Final Scream is an Artifact weapon in Tyranny.
This scepter has been wielded by the Voices of Nerat, and by all accounts has never known a second owner. Who crafted such a monstrous weapon is a matter of speculation, and it isn't beyond possibility that the Voices himself was responsible in some bygone era. Rumors circulate that the screaming mouth at the head contains the agonized howls of the Archon's family, who he tortured to death in the early years of Kyros' dominion as an act of fealty.
The earliest mentions of Final Scream came from a chronicler who attended many of the public executions the Voices hosted. After a prolonged interrogation session, the Voices would finish his work by unveiling his scepter and bashing in the skull of his victim. Other accounts tell that when the Archon of Secrets rooted out treachery in the Empire, he would have Final Scream delivered as a ""gift"" (really a warning) to the household of the offender. Within the fortnight, he would pay the traitors a visit to retrieve his property, which often included members of the family. Some have interpreted this behavior as an invitation for the guilty to flee and grant the Voices the thrill of the hunt.
The open eyes and mouth reveal a core of the Archon's signature green flames, which yet smolder with some semblance of his fractured awareness.
