When the hordes of the Chaos Champion of Slaanesh, Lascilion besiegd her favourite city, Queen Neferata assigned him command of her armies defending Nulahmia, not expecting him to win, but rather buy her time to escape. She even summoned him a zombie dragon to assist and then watched his efforts from the Throne Mount, directing her own magics were they were needed. Although Neferata quickly recognised the arrival of the Stormcast Eternals as poential allies, Harkdon was much slower on the uptake and clashed briefly with them.
Seeking to destroy both the Stormcast and followers of Slaanesh, including the Keeper of Secrets Mendezironhe unleashed the magic’s within the Obelisk of Black, destroying the physical form of the daemon.[2b]
|Of all my vassals, you have been the most precious to me. I entrusted my city into your care and you vowed you would protect it from harm. Your failure I could excuse, but you have done worse to me. You have broken your promise.
~ Neferata to Harkdron.[2a]
