Exalted Daemons are Chaos Warriors who have given their soul to a Lesser Daemon of Chaos. Possession is among the various calamities that can befall a mortal in the Old World. Some mortals willingly embrace possession, seeing it as a doorway to incredible power. Indeed, those mortals found worthy to host such a monster find their capabilities much improved, but at a terrible price. The possessing Daemon slowly devours the soul, feeding off the life energy to sustain its presence in the mortal world, some Exalted Daemons seem to be able to live indefinitely however, conquering the Daemon within and becoming fearsome warleaders. Exalted Deamons are some of the mightiest fighters amongst the Warriors of Chaos, whilst not as powerful as the mighty Daemon Princes, they display similarities in abilities and appearance, often acting as terrifying leaders or lieutenants to their more powerful brethren. The ancient Daemon Prince Urlfdaemonkin is known for gifting his mortal descendants with Exalted Daemonhood.
