Can Glutton Knights speak? Or does it vary from armor types, original speech ability, and/or other factors?
It varies wildly, yes. Armor types
generally affect the look and functionality of the final change, but there can
be plenty of strange variations within armors of the exact same model,
depending on the individual in question. This impacts everything from speech to
mobility to ability to blend in.
The warping effect of the magic is
still partially guided by the afflicted’s will; while ‘normal’ magic is
directed by the conscious mind of a professional (whether they’re a wix, witch,
or sorcerer), insidious magic
infections are largely influenced by the subconsciousness…but a consciousness,
nonetheless, belonging to the infected individual. This can DRAMATICALLY alter the
final result of any magical change. A glutton knight’s ability to speak can be
determined by how much they valued speech in their human life. More rarely, a
knight rendered mute by the change who
desperately wishes to talk again might find their future mutations oblige
them, granting speech anew.
