Assassin (Dark Elves)
|Attention, Adept of the LEXICANUM!|
The Witch Elves, priestesses of the cult of Khaine, sacrifice some Dark Elves during Death Night, taking their victim's children. These children are indoctrinated (i.e.: brain-washed) by the Witch Elves and ruthlessly trained, becoming Assassins.
Anyone wealthy enough may hire an assassin to eliminate a rival or an enemy in Naggaroth. The authorities will not punish someone merely because he hired an assassin; assassination is an accepted fact of life in Dark Elf society and a means of weeding out the weak and foolish.
They operate mostly alone, but are quite able to conceal themselves inside a regular Dark Elf infantry unit, just waiting for the right opportunity to kill an enemy champion amidst the confusion of battle.
The best assassin of Nagaroth is the mysterious Shadowblade. He (or she) is a master of disguise and kills anyone unfortunate enough to anger his mistress Hellebron. Shadowblade also protects the secret of his identity without mercy.
