Iyyokuk the Lucid

Iyyokuk the Lucid is a level 90 Mantid located at Klaxxi'vess. Iyyokuk is considered highly intelligent among the Mantid and uses arcane magic in battle.
Iyyokuk the Lucid is a Klaxxi paragon who was chosen out of his generation, as all paragons are, to be encased in amber, 877 years ago. Oddly though, instead of falling asleep, he remained awake and fully aware the entire time he was supposed to be in stasis. This also meant that he could not suppress his body's desire to breathe, even though the amber takes care of that.
After 78 years, he gave up on breaking out, and spent the other 799 years keeping his mind sharp by creating and solving mental puzzles.
Iyyokuk surmises that maybe something went wrong with his preservation or that it may have had something to do with his unusually keen intellect. In any case, that he did not go insane is truly a testament of how intelligent he really is, although he fully admits that he cannot say for sure that his sanity survived completely intact either.
You think me to be mad, do you? Yes... yes, perhaps a little.
You see, even after eight hundred and seventy-seven years of quietude, the desire to breathe does not go away.
Perhaps something went wrong with my encasement. Perhaps it was my... preternaturally keen intellect. Whatever the cause, I was fully aware of the passage of time during my years in the amber.
After seventy-eight years, I stopped trying to escape. I kept my mind sharp by creating and solving puzzles. The amber took care of the rest of my body.
But my sanity? No, I cannot say with good confidence that it survived intact.
