Lord of War's Last Stand by Grimhilde

Interpretation of Trake's battle against K'Chain Che'Malle by Grimhilde

Trake (also known as Treach) was the Tiger of Summer and Battle.[1] He was a Soletaken[2] First Hero[3] who ascended after Fener's fall to become the new God of War. The people of Korel knew him as the Beast of War.[4]

Trake was born of a soletaken ritual during the period of the First Empire, and subsequently survived the slaughter delivered by the T'lan Imass. He ascended as a First Hero, but in the hundreds of years which followed he slowly lost his conscious mind, remaining locked in his soletaken beast form.

Visions of a wolf returned to Trake's memory as he lay dying after fighting K'Chain Che'Malle Hunters,[5] whereupon Trake Ascended to Godhood, becoming the new God of War, in order to fill the gap left by Fener.

In Deadhouse GatesEdit

When Mappo spoke with Ryllandaras he called the D'ivers the brother of Treach and spoke of a chasm between the brothers to have occurred in Dal Hon or Li Heng. Whether this referred to blood brotherhood or a form of friendship was not made clear.[6]

Fiddler said he had been present when Malazan Emperor Kellanved had fought both Treach and Ryllandaras outside Li Heng.[7]

In The Crippled GodEdit

Gruntle, who became his Mortal Sword, described Trake as hot iron.[8]

Trake was the son of Kilava Onass.[9]
