Secret whisperers are a type of monster added in dNetHack. They are associated with the Madman role. They increase in power by 1 level per point of insight the Madman has.

At this stage, the whisperer has no attacks and often very low HP. It buffs its summoner ("whispers dire secrets, filling you with zeal") but is otherwise unable to contribute in combat.

At this stage, the whisperer gains a gaze attack that allows it to further assist its summoner.

At this stage, the whisperer gains a melee attack, allowing it to contribute directly in combat. However, its intelligence draining attack is still useless against mindless foes.

At this stage, the whisperer becomes a significant presence on the battlefield. The render can also perform a variety of services for its summoner (use #chat to view the menu).
