Mahtnahan dan Jakel was one of the most famous Strangler saints in their long history.

His most famous deed was murdering Rhadreynak, the emperor of what is now Taglios and the Shadowlands, who had persecuted the Stranglers to near extinction. He strangled Rhadreynak with a silver rumel. Additionally, he was the only known person to earn the silver-colored rumel, meaning he strangled at least one thousand people.
