Abhorrant Ghoul King

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Abhorrant Ghoul Kings are the delusional, bestial Vampire masters of the Flesh-Eater Courts, ruling over swathes of the Mortal Realms. Their name was coined by other vampires. They believe themselves to be mortal monarchs and see cannibals not as monsters, but as starving peasants and soldiers that need their help. By partaking in the feast of these kings, these cannibals turn into mordants or ghouls, and become infected by the same madness that hails the king, seeking out more flesh to satisfy their king's cannibalistic pleasure. The blood of the king is a crimson draught offered to a few blessed mordants transforming into more insane and powerful variants of mordants and in time might even become vampire themselves with the ability to found their own mad courts.[5]
