Excuse the ignorance but who is the silent king and what do we know about him?
Before the Necrontyr became the Necrons, Silent King was the hereditary title given to the leader of the Triarch, who would only speak to the other two Phaerons of the Triarch, as everyone else was too below him for him to speak to them, hence the title. Szarekh was the Silent King that pacted with the C'Tan, influenced by the Deceiver, and gave the greenlight to biotransference, condemning the Necrontyr to an eternity of existence as death robots and becoming effectively the last and forever Silent King.
He gave the order for the Necrons to withdraw and slumber in their Tomb Worlds, but instead of joining them, he went on a self imposed exile off-galaxy as he felt he failed the Necrontyr, but found only Tyranids out there, so he realized what a threat they were and whispers said he returned to the galaxy to fight them to ensure the Necrons would survive.
New Necron pariahs maybe...
What if the re-retcon to reintroduce Pariahs is that they're part of the Silent King's personal army that he took with him on his exile and now that he's back he's ordered them to assist Necrons everywhere? Kinda like Guilliman did with the Custodes.
