A group of Executioners.

The Executioners of Har Ganeth are members of the Cult of Khaine, Lord of Murder.

In the cult's hierarchy they come after the Witch Elves, brides and priestesses of Khaine. However even a Witch Elf can be punished and sacrificed if she is found wanting.

They are specialists in sacrificing people, be it High Elves, humans, Dwarfs, or otherwise. They usually don't torture their victims but strike them down with a draich, a two-handed weapon, in one swift stroke, maximized for releasing as much blood as possible.

Their current captain of the Executioners is Tullaris, a most merciless, ruthless and feared leader.

Draich

A Draich is a two-handed weapon, normally a sword or axe. It is the weapon of choice of the executioners in battle. The word 'Draich' represents the act of execution and the skill of the wielder and doesn't mean a particular type of weapon. The weapon of Tullaris is the magic sword used on the day of the founding of the executioners.

Its literal translation is "execution".

Notes

The ritual armament of the Executioners has been retconned. Formerly armed with two-handed great axes, they currently wield two-handed weapons.
