Trumpet Archons serve as celestial messengers and heralds, though their martial skills are considerable. Each carries a gleaming silver trumpet about six feet long.
(Note: currently the Trumpet Archon's 6-foot long trumpet will appear in-game as a flute. Waiting on a trumpet model, but other than looking somewhat silly all of the abilities work.)
