Speech Magic is a fairly rare Talent whose abilities relate to the power of the voice. Speakers can speak and understand different languages, or at least learn them much more quickly than most. Their trademark ability, however, is controlling others through the use of the voice, whether through light suggestion or outright domination. Speech control is particularly feared and insidious because normal mental shields can't block it, and very few people are innately able to resist it.
A single Speaker is capable of swaying masses to their point of view, as seen in Aitur Starsinger, who sought to bring about elf supremacy. Often, a Speaker is unable to even say anything without their voice being unconsciously infused with magic. Streyka, a more polite Speaker, tended to word things vaguely and indirectly in order to avoid inadvertently compelling anyone to answer her questions.
