Elesh Norn

Magic: the Gathering


Elesh Norn was the Praetor of the white-aligned Machine Orthodoxy, which led New Phyrexia. She was called The Mother of Machines, Grand Praetor, or Grand Cenobite by her followers. She was an arrogant master manipulator who devoutly believed in her rhetoric and did not like to be questioned. She was a fascist, theocratic dictator who designed monuments in her image. Although she worked with the other praetors, she wanted to be the one leading the charge. Elesh Norn designed grand plans for all of Phyrexia and wrote the Argent Etchings, scriptures for her followers. When the Phyrexians infected Mirrodin, it was a world of five suns, one for each of the five colors of Magic. read more
