Hish, Lord of Silence



From Dusany's The Gods of Pegana:

"And when it is dark, all in the hour of Triboogie, Hish creepeth from the forest, the Lord of Silence, whose children are the bats, that have broken the command of their father, but in a voice that is ever so low Hish husheth the mouse and all the whispers in the night; he maketh all noises still."
